If you've ever noticed that your blonde or gray hair can start to look yellow or brassy, you're not alone. This can be caused by innumerable factors, including exposure to sunlight, chlorine in swimming pools, and even hard water. Fortunately, there's a simple solution: purple shampoo.
Purple shampoo, such as the Fanola Purple Shampoo, contains a purple pigment, which helps to neutralize the yellow tones in blonde, gray, and white hair.
But how exactly does it work, and what should you look for when choosing a purple shampoo? In this ultimate guide, we'll answer these questions and more.
To understand how purple shampoo works, you first need to know a bit about color theory. Shades opposite to each other on the color wheel cancel each other out. For example, green cancels out red and purple cancels out yellow.
When you apply purple shampoo, such as the no yellow shampoo, to your hair, the purple pigment in the shampoo cancels out the yellow tones in your hair.
This is because purple and yellow are opposite to each other on the color wheel. As a result, your hair looks brighter, cooler, and less brassy.
It's worth noting that purple shampoo doesn't actually lighten your hair. Instead, it simply neutralizes the yellow tones that can make your hair look dull and brassy.
Not all purple shampoos are created equal. Here're a few things to look for when choosing a purple shampoo:
How often you use purple shampoo depends on a few factors, including the intensity of the shampoo, the color of your hair, and how often you wash your hair.
As a general rule, you should use purple shampoo once a week. However, if your hair is very yellow or brassy, you may want to use it more frequently. On the other hand, if your hair discoloration is only slightly yellow, you may only need to use the purple shampoo once every few weeks.
It's also worth noting that purple shampoo can be drying, so it's important to follow up with a good conditioner and hair mask, such as Fanola No Yellow Mask, to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
Purple shampoo is specifically formulated to neutralize yellow and brassy tones in blonde, gray, and white hair. If you use purple shampoo on brown hair, it may not have the same effect, as brown hair doesn't typically have the same underlying tones as lighter hair colors.
That being said, some people with brown hair do use purple shampoo to help neutralize any warm or orange tones in their hair. This can be particularly helpful if you've color-treated brown hair that has turned brassy over time.
If you do decide to use purple shampoo on brown hair, it's important to use it in moderation. Because purple shampoo can be drying, using it too often on brown hair may cause your hair to become dry and brittle.
It's also a good idea to follow up with a conditioner or hair mask, such as Fanola No Yellow Mask, to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
The amount of time you should leave the purple shampoo in your hair can vary depending on your hair type, the intensity of the shampoo, and the level of brassiness in your hair. In general, it's recommended to leave purple shampoo in your hair for 3-5 minutes.
If you have blonde or gray hair that is extremely brassy, you may want to leave the shampoo in your hair for up to 10 minutes. However, it's important to be careful not to leave the shampoo in your hair for an excessive duration, as it can dry out your hair and cause damage.
Purple shampoos can be drying, so it's crucial to follow up with a nourishing mask or conditioner to maintain hair hydration and health. After you rinse out the shampoo, apply a conditioner to your hair and leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing it out.
Yes, purple shampoo can be used on curly or textured hair, but it's important to be cautious as these hair types are more prone to dryness and damage. It's recommended to use purple shampoo once a week or every other week and to follow up with a deep conditioning treatment.
It's not recommended to mix purple shampoo with regular shampoo as this can dilute the purple pigment and make it less effective at neutralizing brassy tones.
Purple shampoo contains purple pigments that counteract yellow or orange tones in blonde, gray, and white hair. When applied, the purple pigments neutralize the brassy tones, leaving the hair looking brighter and cooler.
Yes, purple shampoo can be used as a toner, but it's important to be cautious and not leave it on for too long as it can over-tone the hair, resulting in a purple or gray tint.
Purple shampoo may seem like a small addition to your hair care routine, but it can make a big difference in keeping your blonde, gray, or white locks looking fresh and vibrant.
With its ability to neutralize brassy tones, purple shampoo has become a beloved secret weapon for many people. So go ahead, embrace the purple, and rock that bright and beautiful hair!
