What is purple shampoo?
It’s a deep purple shampoo that distributes purple pigment to neutralize brassy, yellow tones. As for why, let’s go back to the third grade for a second. By a show of hands, who can tell me what’s on the opposite end of the color wheel from purple? Oh yes, good job. It’s yellow! So to neutralize yellow hues, you’d color them with purple ones. Purple shampoo uses basic color mixing to hide those brassy tones. So when we wash our hair with purple shampoo, our hair absorbs a small amount of purple pigment, which cancels out red and yellow undertones, making your blue undertones higher. It basically brightens up the blonde by restoring your hair to its former cooler color.
Many purple shampoos have the following ingredients: Sodium Laureth, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfates. They are potentially damaging to the hair and can cause dryness. Those sensitive to these chemicals may also experience skin or eye irritation.
What causes hair to become brassy?
Sometimes the stuff in our water can build up on the hair and make it brassy, such as minerals, chlorine, or even rusty pipes.
