John Frieda Sheer Blonde Tone Correcting Shampoo

Last month when I went to the salon to get my hair colored and re-highlighted, I talked to my hairstylist about a very common problem: brassy hair. Although I'm a brunette, my blonde highlights keep getting brassy and she suggested I use what's called "purple shampoo" at least once a week. If you don't know what brassy hair is, it's basically when hair that's been dyed blonde, turns into an annoying orange color. Luckily for me, it's only beginning to get brassy so I thought I'd take care of the problem early on. 

After searching the internet for a good purple shampoo, I decided to try John Frieda's Sheer Blonde Color Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo which I read great reviews on and it was only $6 so I thought that I wouldn't feel too bad if it didn't work out. I've never tried purple shampoo before and to my surprise the color of the liquid was actually a bright purple instead of something like a lavender color that I was expecting. Once I applied it to my hair, it started to foam easily and the color turned into plain, old white foam so I was glad to see that it wouldn't leave any stains or anything like that.

I was shocked to see that it did work the first time around even though on the bottle it says to use it at least three times a week to see results. There was a small difference in the brassiness and I'm sure the more I use it, the more results I'll see. It took away the shiny, golden color that my highlights seemed to have and even made my brown hair look...browner? I'm guessing it's because it took away some of that redness that brown hair seems to have. My point is that it made my hair color seem more rich and took away the brassiness (is that a word?) the first time around. My only complaint is that once you rinse your hair out, you'll notice that your hair is incredibly dry so you'll have to use a good conditioner in order to make up for it. I personally don't see it as a problem but for some people with fine hair, it could cause a bit of hair fall-out. I probably won't be using this three times a week since it's a bit much but will alternate it with my regular shampoo.

What do you guys think of purple shampoo? Do you have other methods of getting rid of brassy hair?

Until next time lovelies,
