Say Buh-Bye To Brassy With Purple Shampoo For Blonde Hair

Let's face it: Blondes have more fun—but only if your blonde locks are well maintained! Purple shampoo for blonde hair is a must if you hope to beat brassiness and keep your light hair looking shiny and fresh. Over time, natural washes and even the water from your shower can affect the hue of your hair, even if you're extra good about waiting every few days to wash and dry. Luckily, purple shampoo counteracts warmer, rusty tones that occur from water and other exposed chemicals by absorbing and turning them cooler to heighten your icy locks and cancel out brassiness and yellow. We've gone ahead and scoured the net to find the best purple 'poos on the market at every price point, no matter if you're a natural or bottle blonde. Talk about smart blondes!
