How to properly use purple shampoo

First things first, we thought we would get into the proper application and use of purple shampoo, because you may be doing it wrong.. One common problem many people gloss over, your purple shampoo does not replace your normal shampoo. If it is hair wash day, and you want to use your purple shampoo, you should still be cleansing with a normal shampoo first. Purple shampoos can also be a lot more harsh on strands, which is why it is so important to not overuse. Try adding in a purple shampoo every third or fourth wash, or longer if needed. You'll know if you are overdoing it as hair will remain dry & course. 

To properly use, simply coat hair from roots to end & allow to sit for a couple minutes. If you feel you need another minute or two, you can do that as well! The key to purple shampoo is following it up with a mask or or deep conditioning treatment.
