Purple shampoo is used to strengthen and brighten colored hair, in particular blonde, white or grey hair. Since purple is opposite these kind of colors on the color chart, along with green tones, it is the best color shampoo to get to avoid brassy tones in your hair (usually yellow). However, depending on the product, it can also be a great solution for brightening your darker hair, as it can be used for brown, purple or black hair too! It should only be used once or twice a week maximum on your hair as if you have very light hair, it can turn it purple, because normally these products are very strong. The result? These shampoos leave you with fresh and vibrant hair. Want to know which is the best shampoo for blonde hair? Here are our top 20 purple shampoos for you to try out.
