Q: Hi, I have strawberry blonde hair. Would using this make my hair more gingery or more blonde?

submitted by Chloe - 2 months ago
  • A: Hi Chloe! This is intended to tone already blonde hair. The results would be dependent on how dark your strawberry blonde is at this time. It could result in a darker strawberry color after use.

Q: I just got my hair done and I decided to bleach my hair baby blonde, and it looks really orange at the top, would this product help tone the orange out and make it look a lot like I wanted? And how often do you suggest to use this product on your hair?

submitted by Maegen - 4 years ago

I went to a hair salon, paid $200 + tip for platinum blonde hair. Obviously she didn't care because she only brought my hair to brass yellow from my roots to mid lengths. All this shampoo did was make the brass more prominant and the rest of my hair grey/purple. It does nothing to get rid of brass. Also makes hair dry and frizzy all over. I now have to pay another salon over $200 to get it to what I want it to be.

Frankincense and Myrrh are not listed in the ingredients list. But it certainly smells like it. Very smoky and earthy smell. Not my ideal scent for shampoo or conditioner. Plus leaves the hair very dry. No thanks.

I’ve used this shampoo religiously for the last 5 years and have loved it. I saw the new packaging and was concerned but it said it’s the same formula… I don’t believe it is. Now it’s leaving my hair SO greasy after using it! Super bummed and now I have to find a new shampoo

Warning the new update with whatever they did to this does not “feel” like any conditioner and it stained the cracks of my hands and chest purple. I tried scrubbing for awhile with different stuff trying to get the purple out of the cracks of my skin and it didn’t do anything. I loved the old version- this version if you have this bottle could do the same to you

Was able to get it to work as well as the more expensive salon brands. I had to use way more of the product each wash, but the bottle lasted me a year! Every purple shampoo will be drying, so be sure to condition. The smell is not the best, but it washes out. I am going to buy my second bottle.

Worked great for taking down the brassiness in my hair! The person who dyed my hair highly recommended this brand to keep it toned the way I wanted , and for the price i would say it was more than worth it.

My, daughter, who is an expert home colorist, helped color my grey, mousy hair back to a beautiful dark blonde. One problem: brassiness. I used this shampoo twice and it’s gone! Very happy with this product and will continue to use as necessary. Scent is okay; it actually smells like Pureology’s purple shampoo but just a lot stronger.

I have gray/white hair and I purchased this to keep it looking clean and shiny. Instead my hair was left with a very noticeable purple shade. Also has a strong smell that I did not care for. I previously was using Rusk Deepshine Platinum Shampoo and it made my hair a very pretty white, I received many compliments. I will be going back to that brand. I will not purchase this again. If you want gray hair with hints of purple this is for you.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lately my hair has been feeling like residue is being left behind but after a few washes with this I didn’t have that problem anymore! I feel like this product works really well and I’m always looking for a product that can keep my blonde looking top notch!

1. BACKGROUND: I used this product from 2016 (summer) to 2018 (fall). My hair is very dark, as I am half Korean, to take me fully blonde it took 2 sessions a week apart (8-12 hrs each) this was done to do as little damage to my hair as possible. (Any unevenness in tone from hair under my ear/base of skull is due to previous bleaching for underlights and color). VIDEO is from 1st session (lost video from second session-red tones are from previous sessions of green/purple/red underlights so it was impossible to go as light as others my go/wish to without EXTREME permanent damage and immediate breakage). 2. REVIEW: This product is very damaging to your hair, my friend has been bleaching her hair for over 12 years, there are much better products. Many people also use this as they believe purple shampoo “kills yellow tones” it helps with orange and BRASSINESS. Use BLUE shampoo if you want to keep more silver/ remove more “yellow tones”. It is cheap, and in images you can see I bleached very light, shimmer lights did kill some brassiness but it did not help as much as blue shampoo would have (it is mis-marketed). Also, after speaking to multiple professional HMUA’s, this is one of the most damaging purple shampoo’s you can purchase. It did more damage overtime and looking back I would have preferred to not use it at all, or use it less than the bottle & brand recommends. My sister has bleached her hair in 2013/14 (underlights and some highlights bordering on an ombré) and a full ombré in 2020 that she occasionally grows out partially then bleaches higher without touching the top which is why the bottle image is small as the bottle is dirty). It has also damaged her hair which is much thicker/denser and darker than mine (she has more curl/Native American recessive genes/and Korean than I do from our mom & great-grandmother-paternal). Regardless we have both suffered more damage from this product and would have used a higher quality, less damaging blue shampoo instead. 3. EDIT: as you can see from my roots in at least 2 images, my hair was a very cool dark brown, commonly mistaken as black (it is not black- my mothers hair is black. In my current profile image I have a lot of red lights that I put some purple dye on- in my profile picture all the bleached hair has been grown out and cut. 4. OTHER INFORMATION: -my hair is lighter from both age & once you bleach the skull your hair will never be as dark as it once was/ the same goes for natural blondes or lighter brunettes if you add darker color to the roots- this is just some extra information I wish I had known at a younger age in case anyone has children/ is looking at products before dying their hair).
