Life as a bottle blonde can be tough. We spend an enormous amount of time and money trying to make it look like we were born with our fabulous color, even if we haven’t seen a blonde hair naturally sprout from our head since we were six.
Unfortunately, the process of keeping up with our baby blonde and wreck havoc on our mane, leaving our ends dry and brittle. Not to mention the brassiness that can easily develop. Luckily, that’s one thing we can do something about- enter purple shampoo.
Purple shampoo works to effectively correct brassy tones in blonde and grey hair. Most experts recommend lathering up (and letting the shampoo sit in your hair for about five minutes) once per week to maintain your perfect shade.
So whether you’re platinum, rocking an awesome shade of grey, or somewhere in between, there’s a purple shampoo for you. Read on to find your perfect match.
