What Is Purple Shampoo?

A shampoo for colored hair, it highlights hair with purple-pigments as a counter to yellow or brassy tones in blonde, gray, silver, or platinum hair. It is basically a treatment shampoo to help maintain the desired hair color and tone between salon visits and make sure that bleach doesn’t change your hair orange-ey.

But let’s get back to the topic at hand. Now that you’ve landed on purple shampoo, we’ll help you understand how it works.
What Does Purple Shampoo Do?
Basically a purple shampoo is designed to neutralize or counteract yellow or brassy tones in blonde, gray, silver, or platinum hair. When applied to the hair, the purple pigments in purple shampoo deposit a small amount of purple color onto the hair strands. Purple is opposite to yellow according to the color wheel theory and the purple pigments help to neutralize or cancel out the yellow tones in the hair which results in a more balanced Yin-Yang appearance.
How To Use A Purple Shampoo?
- Wet your hair thoroughly.
- Squeeze a small amount of purple shampoo into your hand depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
- Apply the purple shampoo to your hair.
- Leave the shampoo on for the recommended time (generally 3-5 minutes). Check the manufacturer's instructions on the bottle for the recommended duration.
- Rinse thoroughly. Condition your hair and style as desired.
Use purple shampoo as needed (typically once or twice a week). See… easy-peazy shampoo-squeezy! But hey, be sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions as different products can vary between each other.
When To Use Purple Shampoo After Bleaching?
Hold up… wait a minute , something ain’t right… You just bleached your hair and now want to use purple shampoo. Just looking out for you, so we’ll let you know there are still chemical boom-booms going on in your hair. Thus, it's generally recommended to wait at least 48-72 hours before using purple shampoo after bleaching. Let your hair cuticles close and rest, allow your hair to stabilize after the bleaching process so you can reduce the risk of further damage.
For How Long Should Purple Shampoo Be Left On Hair?
The duration for which you should leave purple shampoo on your hair can vary depending on several factors, including the brand and formulation of the purple shampoo, the level of brassiness or yellow tones in your hair, and your desired results. However, as a general guideline, it's usually recommended to leave purple shampoo on your hair for around 3-5 minutes.
You may be tempted to leave it for a longer duration to accelerate its effects but that doesn’t happen and you can further damage your hair. Take a chill-pill, rest and let the shampoo work its miracles, and bring your hair color back to normal.
Does Purple Shampoo Work On Black Hair?
If you’re looking to color your hair purple with purple shampoo, well here’s our opinion. Normally, purple shampoo is typically designed to neutralize orange and yellowish tones of bleaching. As such, it may not be that effective on black hair, which lacks the warm tone that purple shampoo is designed to be a counter to. Purple shampoo is mostly used on lightened or color-treated hair to help maintain a cool or ashy tone and fight brassiness.
However, some purple shampoos may still provide subtle toning effects on black hair, but again that depends if you already have warm tones. If you already have black hair and want to use purple shampoo, keep in mind that the results may vary and may not be as noticeable compared to other hair colors that are lighter in tone.
So that’s that about purple shampoos. Remember, if purple shampoo doesn’t work there are still ways to repair your hair and most importantly don’t panic.
