About this item

Highlights

  • ultra-violet pigment
  • brass reducing
  • intense toning
  • shine restoring
  • sulfate-free

Description

I wanted to create a purple shampoo that was great for toning blondes + brunettes, that was also sulfate-free... I’ve always had a hard time finding that combo. If you like ashy tones or even pastel lavender tones, you can use this every time you shampoo. If you like neutral tones, use it only when needed to cut brass. Use this with or without The One Purple Conditioner on natural or color treated hair.

Toning time!

How to:
1. Depending on the thickness of your hair, apply a dime to quarter-sized amount of shampoo into your palm.
2. Apply to wet hair, massaging into the scalp to create a rich lather.
3. With purple shampoo you want to make sure you apply more product where you see more brass. I like to let it sit a little longer toward the top where hair is less porous and tends to be warmer in tone (2-3 min), then I let it run down through the ends where it's more porous for less time (1-2 min).
4. Rinse well and follow with conditioner or a hydrating mask.

Tip: Once your hair is toned, pause on using until you need it again. If you ever go overboard, shampoo with a clarifying shampoo + condition well.

Contains Zip-Up Technology™, our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

Q: Hi, our shower stall stained purple because we didn't clean it off well enough. How can we remove the stains. It is either an acrylic or fiberglass. Is the purple component ammonia based or what?

submitted by CAJ - 2 years ago
  • A: Happy to help! We can assure you that while this is very uncommon, our purple shampoo is a highly pigmented formula and it's possible for the tone to transfer to porous surfaces. We recommend trying Isopropyl alcohol or Baking Soda to remove the surface stains.

Q: I have black hair am I okay using the purple shampoo, I used it once will it be okay

submitted by Lorena - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi Lorena, thank you for your question. Just to clarify, when you say black hair, are you referring to color or texture? If you're referring to color, it will be fine. You won't see any toning effects if your hair is black but there is no harm in using it. If you're looking for something to put a purple hue to your black hair color, this will not be strong enough. If this is in regards to your natural texture, I would need to know more about you hair color and porosity to give the best possible answer! Let me know, happy to help.

Turned my hair silver with streaks of purple. Salt Air or L’Oreal brands of purple shampoo work better to take the brassiness out and brighten the blond

Moisturizing but doesn’t provide good toning

While the Kristen Ess Purple Shampoo is moisterizing, I do not feel like it provided the toning that I was seeking on my greying hair. I noticed multiple spots where the tint appeared mauve in color rather than brightening my white/silver hair. The color looked drab overall.

If I could give zero stars I would. This product destroyed my hair. I literally can’t brush through it and it turned my blonde highlights white. My hair has never felt more damaged in my whole life. And this was only after ONE wash. I’m so disappointed. I was so excited to use this.

I have used this product 2 days in a row. I recently had my hair bleached and it pulled some gold. I have used other purple shampoos before and they would tone my hair to be more blonde than yellow. So far it has taken out some of the brassiness but not all of it. I have left it on for a longer time and it hasn’t lightened it to where I want. I will continue to use.

I have been using blonde toning shampoos for over 10 years now. I hated how most either dried my hair out or didn't even work. This one smells great, leaves my hair soft and actually works. I leave it on in the shower for about 5 min and it perfectly tones it. I always use another shampoo first to get full cleansing power, as I really only use this one to tone. Not sure how effective it is for cleansing, but that's not the main purpose for me. Super pigmented and smells wonderful! Will continue to buy this!!

If you are a blonde you need the shampoo ( i don’t like conditioner ) . it safely removes yellow from the hair and leaves cool tone. The convenient packaging also comes in a travel size.

This product definitely helps combat the brassiness of my hair. For reference I have dirty blonde hair with a balayage, so the brassiness can stick out if I don’t maintain between seeing my stylist. Only complaint it is leaves my hair feeling a little dry afterwards.

BEST PURPLE SHAMPOO OF ALL TIME. Platinum hair for 3 years and i dont use toner at all i use this shampoo only! Ive tried professional salon purple shampoos and deug store and this is hands down the most pigmented one on the market! I tell everyone about this shampoo, just dont leave it on too long if you have very light hair or it will turn your hair purple!

Smell is terrible, and made my hair feel dried out and waxy, basically the opposite of soft and moisturized. I really like their other products, but the purple line is not for me.

This shampoo doesn't appear to help with my brassiness. Worse of all it absolutely burned my skin causing a rash and bumps all over my shoulder area. I did patch test but that was ok. However, when used on my scalp with more shampoo, it absolutely burned my skin. I would look for safer products.
