    Sounds weird doesn’t it ? But it is all to do with ‘opposite’ colours on the colour spectrum.

    The opposite of yellow is purple/violet and using a purple shampoo/conditioner will effectively neutralise all the yellow ‘tones’ in the hair. It DOES work honest. In fact there are a number of products specifically designed for this problem and what they do is deposit a tiny bit of ‘purple-hued’ pigment in the hair to calm the yellow tones down. It also works for natural blondes in need af a bit of a boost, as well as highlights.

    There are more and more of these ranges coming on the market too for all hair colours and they work the same way as the purple conditioners. These are excellent at ‘freshening up’ your colour if it’s starting to look a little dull. They come in several varieties and also give a nice ‘shine’ too.

    There are also a few styling products out there. One of the one’s from the John Frieda Sheer Blonde range is a ‘Dual Action’ mousse for blondes. Its a violet tinted styling mousse. It works for styling AND counteracting brassy tones all at once. It’s very good. But like I aid there are lots if you look, especially in bigger stores. And online you are spoiled for choice if you a re willing to pay a bit extra for a brand like Aveda/Tigi or Redken etc. You’ll notice that a lot of them contain purple pigment in them. This is exactly what you need to get rid of brassy hair. I’ve named a few at the bottom of the page.


    Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo and Conditioner (purple shampoo/conditioner, buy online)

    John Freida Sheer Blonde Shampoo.

    Elvive Smooth Intense Shampoo (one of the best I’ve tried and great price too !!, buy at Boots, Superdrug, others)

    Aveda Cherry Almond Bark Conditioner (reconstuctive conditioner, buy online )

    Aussie 5 minute miracle (deep conditioning sachets, Boots etc)

    Redken Colour Inject Conditioner (comes in different shades including ones for white/platinum blondes, one for neutrals, and one for golden blondes, buy online)

    HEAT PROTECTORS :- TIGI Bedhead Health Goddess, (spray in after washing/conditioning packed with vitamins and good things and leaves hair very soft and silky !!!! buy online ).

    KMS Flat Out ‘Hot Pressed’ Thermal Styler (heat protection with a bit of ‘hold’ to it, buy online at http://www.mrbrooks.co.uk ).


    Wella Shaders (sachets), My lifesavers, buy in nearly any chemist/pharmacy.

    Harmony toners (as above but slightly thicker and needs to be used a bit more sparingly).

    Wella Setting Lotion in Silver/Ash (old fashioned setting lotion with purple pigment, washes out buy in Boots etc, and several well heeled dept stores like Frasers. I put it into a travel size spray bottle and spray when/if needed ).

    John Frieda Blonde Ambition Violet Tinted Mousse (Boots etc )


    TIGI Straight Talk Straightening Balm (gel that softens and relaxes the hair for straight styles…a sort of ‘Lenor’ for your hair.., online).

    TIGI Shine Junkie (finishing wax that leaves hair looking fab and tames the frizz too, online ).

  2. I use Matrix Shade Memory for blondes in the cool tone…. the leave in foam in that line has ash pigments in it to counteract brassiness.

  3. Clynol Reflex silver. its that good if you leave it on too long it turns your hair silver! leave it on for about a minute and your hair takes literally every bit of yellow out. i think you can only get it at hair and beauty outlets.

    for the person above, the shampoo has to be purple as the ‘purple’ colour is actually toner. purple toners eliminate brassy yellow tones from blonde hair as purple is the opposite colour from yellow on a colour wheel. hope iv helped!

  4. I just got highlites yesterday and purchased the salon’s version of John Frieda’s purple shampoo. The salon is called Mastercuts and I think if you google it you could even get some shipped. I got the liter and it was only about $16. That’s awesome, considering how much you get. It’s going to last forever because I alternate with some other products. You don’t have to use this everyday. My stylist said three times a week is fine but since I just got it done, I’ll use it every time I shampoo for a few days just to be sure my hair doesn’t fade.
