Can you really have too much of a good thing?

If you have blonde hair or silver tresses you know purple shampoo is the MVP in your hair care routine. Not only can it beat brassiness but incorporating it into your routine can also give you brighter, healthier-looking locks. With all those benefits, you may have wondered if you could use these pretty colored products every day. So We’re here to break down the caveats to using purple shampoo, masks, and conditioners in your hair care routine.


What Is Purple Shampoo?

Purple shampoo consists of a formula that has purple or violet pigments. This toning shampoo gets its name from its bold color, though it’s sometimes also referred to as silver shampoo thanks to its ability to leave blonde and silver hair with a cool-toned finish. It’s a must for anyone with lightened locks who wants to keep hair looking healthy and vibrant.


How Often Should You Use Purple Shampoo?

Purple shampoo is meant only to be used when your hair is looking brassy, not every day. Generally, you’ll want to incorporate it into your hair care routine one to three times a week in place of your usual shampoo. To maximize the benefits, you’ll always want to use your purple shampoo with a purple conditioner. Just follow the instructions on the product and let the purple pigments do their thing. 


As long as you follow the directions, your hair color should remain the same (sans brass). If you know you have porous hair, which means that your hair will easily and readily absorb the product, be cautious about leaving the purple shampoo on for too long. However, if you do notice purple tones beginning to show, simply use your go-to clarifying shampoo, and they should fade right out.
