The Best Purple Shampoos For Your Shade Of Blonde

Blondes are said to have more fun, but making the drastic switch from brunette to blonde isn’t easy. Not only do you have to deal with roots, but maintaining your new colour and battling brass can do a lot of damage to your wallet. Luckily, there’s purple shampoo, which is the most affordable solution to avoid regular visits to your hair salon. They tone and neutralize the unavoidable orangey-brass tones that peek through the blonde after a couple of weeks after bleaching. But not all purple shampoos work the same way, and there’s also more than just one shade of blonde. Discover the right purple shampoo for you and your blonde hair needs.

Best For: Colour-treated & Highlighted Blondes
This shampoo will tone your hair in just three washes. Its colour-correcting technology helps control and prevent brassiness even before it happens, keeping your locks looking salon fresh. John Frieda Sheer Blonde Color Renew Tone-Correcting Shampoo, $13

Best For: Platinum Blondes
Boost white tones and lightly tone your hair without drastically altering its colour with this sulfate-free, lavender shampoo. Bonus: you’ll instantly fall in love with the lavender aroma it will leave in your bathroom. OGX Lavender Luminescent Platinum Shampoo, $11 

Best For: White Blonde & Silver Hair
This dark purple-tinted shampoo is infused with silk proteins and grape extracts that instantly eliminate brass after one wash. If you have platinum blonde or silver hair, this shampoo is your go-to. Because it acts more like a home-toner treatment than cleanser, we recommend you use this once every two weeks in between washes. Inebrya Ice Cream No-Yellow Shampoo, $11

Best For: All Dyed Shades of Blonde
Designed regular use, this iris extract-infused toning shampoo gently and easily banishes brassy tones. This sulfate-free shampoo not only neutralizes, but its deep hydrating abilities and natural botanical extracts will leave overly-processed hair feeling and feeling soft and silky. L’Oré©al EverPure Blonde Shampoo, $10

Best For: Cool Blondes
Adored by ashy balayage blondes everywhere, this sulfate-free, violet shampoo neutralizes intense orange tones, while gently cleansing the hair and acts as a post-salon toner treatment too. Plus, UV protectants help fight fading, while a peptide complex strengthens fragile strands. Joico Color Endure Violet Shampoo, $13

Best For: Silver or Grey Hair
Not technically purple, but this deep blue tinted shampoo does the job (and possibly more)! This gentle cleanser brightens silvery tones and neutralizes brassiness. But if you’re a traditional blonde tackling months worth of brass, warning: don’t leave this shampoo masking on your hair for too long, as it has a reputation for leaving a grey tinge. Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo, $47

Best For: Platinum to Grey Blondes
Although purple shampoo is advertised to cater to blondes, you don’t need to be blonde to love it. This Lush shampoo is loved by all for its beautiful violet leaf scent and its anti-brass abilities. Oh yeah, and it’s vegan too! Lush Daddy-O Shampoo, $12
