Light hair colors, while beautiful, can quickly lose their luster for a variety of reasons. Blonde colored and highlighted hair can turn yellow/brassy very quickly after you get it dyed. Platinum is a beautiful color, but it’s not easy to keep bright.
As you age, your hair loses its brightness and shine and can look dull and old. Naturally, gray hair is also prone to picking up unattractive yellow tones.
Light-colored and naturally gray hair are prone to discoloration due to exposure to the sun, hard water, and other environmental factors.
What product will help keep bright hair colors fresh and beautiful?
The simplest way to prevent discoloration and neutralize undesirable yellow and brassy tones in your hair is a purple shampoo.
Purple/blue shampoos are formulated with violet pigment to counteract brassiness in natural or enhanced blonde, white, and gray hair.
However, most purple shampoos can dry out the hair, especially when used on a regular basis, and your bleached hair is already dry and porous—not a great combination.
To avoid dryness, you can alternate a violet shampoo with your regular shampoo, but this won’t make much difference if your shampoo contains harsh sulfate cleansers.
Another way to prevent over-drying is to use sulfate-free purple shampoos, which are gentler to your hair. Some sulfate-free purple shampoos are even safe for daily use.
Below is a list of sulfate-free purple shampoos formulated with natural ingredients to combat brassy and yellow tones and keep your hair hydrated, soft, and manageable.
L’ANZA Silver Shampoo is formulated with extracts of organic viola and lavender, which help to brighten silver, platinum, and highlighted hair and prevent the appearance of brassiness. This intense violet shampoo adds a glossy shine to gray hair and keeps it from yellowing. It also works great for silver, platinum blonde, and ash blonde hair.
Its flower extracts and UV protectors prevent color from fading and help reduce trips to the salon. It also helps keep red hair vibrant, makes the purple color last longer, and adds shine to darker shades.
Keratin amino acids help reduce breakage and make your hair feel softer and healthier.
Use it every other time you wash your hair and follow with a good conditioner to prevent dry or tangled hair. If you leave it on for longer than recommended, this shampoo can leave a violet hue in your hair.

This shampoo has a pleasant fruity smell.
It doesn’t lather as much as an ordinary shampoo, and consequently, it doesn’t spread well. You need to use a lot of product to completely saturate your hair, especially if your hair has not been washed for days. Mixing this purple shampoo with a little of your regular shampoo helps create a foamy lather and makes the shampoo mixture more spreadable.
