Shampoo based on your hair color: Blondes vs Brunettes

Hey you! Are you struggling with brassiness or orange and red undertones in your hair? Well the good news is that you don't have to book a hair appointment just yet. There are specific shampoos meant for both blondes & brunettes, to cancel out that brassy tone. We've all heard of purple shampoo, and if you're a blonde you probably have it in your shower right now. But what about brunettes? We have you covered. Here's why you might need a colored shampoo..

Purple Shampoo

If you're a blondie I'm sure you have one of these in your shower. Shimmer Lights is a purple based shampoo that is meant to cancel out any yellow or brassiness in your hair. Cool/ashy toned hair has been a huge trend & it isn't going anywhere. If that's your look, you need purple shampoo in your shower. Makes your color last longer + skip the hair salon! 

How to use: Use once or twice a week at most after shampooing. Purple shampoo does not replace your normal shampoo. Leave on for a few minutes. Follow up by conditioning to keep hair moisturized.

Blue Shampoo

Someone who has light or medium brunette hair & is noticing brassy or orange tones, you would benefit from using a blue shampoo. The blue neutralizes any orange tones in your hair. 

How to use: Use at most once a week to cancel out any orange or red tones in brown hair. Lather & rinse or leave on for 2-3 minutes. Follow with a conditioner to keep hair moisturized.

Green Shampoo

Anyone with dark brown or black hair, green shampoo. The green cancels out any unwanted red tones leaving you with a rich dark hair color shade. If you have a deep brunette color but like to go out in the sun, and you notice red hints, try out a green shampoo!

How to use: Use on dark brown or black hair to cancel out red tones. Once a week or when you notice any red tones popping up. Follow with a conditioner to keep hair moisturized.

Color Depositing Hair Mask

This is an interesting one to add in there... but some of you might benefit from this. There is such thing as a color depositing hair mask. It provides temporary color + the same benefits a hair mask would give you.
