This Purple Shampoo Is the Best I’ve Found for My Blonde HairAugust 22, 2022
Finding the right shampoo is everything. In addition to figuring out how to use shampoo bars and when to use powder shampoo, if you’re blonde like I am, you also have to contend with sorting through the mass of purple shampoos on the market to find the best shampoo for your shade.
At my last root touch-up, I went for a bright “baby blonde” and loved the results, but I felt unsure about the maintenance — I worried that most of my purple shampoos would ice out the color too much and I would lose the hint of warmth I wanted. Enter the Matrix Total Results So Silver Shampoo for Blonde and Silver Hair. Out of the army of shampoos for any hair concern lined up inside my shower, I’ve found that this is the best one for maintaining my mix of warm buttery tones mixed with some cool tones.
The shampoo is pigmented, but not so much so that it stains my palms or the floor of my shower. While the brand recommends leaving this in for three to five minutes for maximum toning power, I prefer to leave it on for one to two. This keeps my blonde super bright — over-toning can dull even the clearest of platinum shades.
I typically wash my hair once or twice a week, and while I can only use most purple shampoos once a week because of how drying they are, that doesn’t seem to be the case with this one. In fact, my hair feels just as soft after washing with this formula as it does with a moisturizing shampoo.
If you’re looking for a shampoo for blonde hair that will tone without turning your pale platinum or gray hair lavender, or looking to illuminate a warm blonde shade like mine, you need to try this one.
