The Ultimate Guide To Purple Shampoo For Men

By Blanca Berumen

So, what exactly is purple shampoo? And why do people use it?

Purple Shampoo consists of a violet pigment that neutralize any brassy, yellow tones that can be found in blonde, silver, gray, white, bleached, or brassy hair. When it comes to coloring your hair, to ensure you get the shade of blonde you want with the least amount of damage as possible, the initial hair dying process can take months depending on your natural hair color. The most important step your stylist will need to do is tone the hair with a purple shampoo to get rid of unwanted warm tones. Even after dying or bleaching your hair, it is recommended to incorporate purple shampoo into your usual shower routine.

How does it work?

To get technical, purple is on the opposite side of yellow on the color wheel; therefore, purple can be seen as a color corrector when dealing with yellow tones. When going blonde, hair stylists will use a professional toner to give you a cooler toned blonde, but that alone will not last forever. It is recommended to invest in purple shampoo to maintain your blonde and avoid any warm, brassy tones. But purple shampoo is not just for those who bleach their hair blonde! For men, it can be used on their facial hair.
