Purple Shampoo For Blondes

I began having my naturally blonde hair highlighted after becoming bored of it's dull tone. Although I love the look when I first leave the salon, I find that after a few weeks, my new colour loses it's shine to a brassy, yellow blonde. 



Recently, my hairdresser suggested I try out a purple shampoo which is hugely popular this summer. I opted for a bottle of Sheer Blonde Colour Renew from John Frieda.


As you can see the shampoo is literally a vivid shade of alien slime purple. Don't be afraid to lather plenty up and let it soak in for a couple of minutes, it won't dye your hair purple, I promise. The theory is that the purple tones cancel out yellow tones as they are opposites on the colour wheel. 

The product came in at a reasonable £4.99 which I think is well worth the money as I still have half a bottle left after a over month of using it three times per week (as recommended). I can honestly say I noticed the difference after only one wash! My hair not only is a much nicer shade of blonde, but also feels healthier and smoother... RESULT!

Love, Anna x
