Whether you are a natural blonde or go to the salon regularly to dye your hair, one thing is for sure. Finding a good shampoo is the key to keeping your color and shine.

I have been a blonde for many years, I don’t even count them anymore. So I decided to come to your aid and tell you about my experience with the golden strands and what shampoos I used. I’ve come up with the Top 3 best purple shampoos, which I consider the best, especially the quality/price ratio.

But first, you need to make sure that you use the blond hair shampoo properly to take advantage of it.

How to use purple blonde hair shampoo

Purple shampoos have been on the trend in recent years. But, as any hairstylist or colorist will tell you, color correction pigments have long been a trick practiced by professionals. It has to do with the color wheel, where complementary colors “help” each other. Yellow tones like baby-chicks will be softened, cooled by complementary color, purple, hence the practice of this shampoo for blonde hair.

Who can use purple shampoo?

Anyone with blonde hair, either stranded or completely blonde. Even people with gray hair can enjoy the benefits of purple shampoo. This will enhance and brighten the cool tones of gray hair.

Below are the steps you need to take when using purple shampoo.

In most respects, purple shampoo is similar to regular shampoo. However, it will not completely replace the usual shampoo. Instead, you will alternate the washes with purple shampoo with those with regular shampoo, depending on how cold you want the tone of your blonde hair to be.

#1. Lightly dampen your hair. Professionals advise us to moisten our hair for at least a minute with warm water.

#2. Put the amount of purple shampoo you usually use in the palm of your hand. This differs from person to person depending on the type of hair, the length. Purple shampoo can stain your skin, which is why some people use gloves when using it. I don’t use gloves, and I haven’t been left with stained hands.

#3. Massage the shampoo in your palm for 2-3 seconds, then place it on the scalp using light circular movements that do not aggress the hair. The purple shampoo needs to be left on the hair a little longer than usual, somewhere in 1-2 minutes, during which time you can apply light movements on the scalp. If you leave it on your hair for a long time, you risk drying your hair. Rinse with warm water.

#4. Repeat step 2, then rinse your hair thoroughly. This is a crucial step, which you should do very carefully, without pulling your hair, which is in its most fragile, wet state.

#5. Apply conditioner or moisturizer, also for blonde hair. I have fine hair with a tendency to become greasy, so any conditioner or mask I use, I apply only on the length of the hair, never on the roots. Let it work for a few minutes, then rinse well.

#6. To protect your hair, professionals recommend using microfiber towels. I successfully dry it with old T-shirts, taking care not to rub my hair. I just tap it lightly.

The purple shampoo does not stain on the hands. But on the shower, bathtub, or tiles it leaves stains that go hard, especially if they have had to react for a few hours. So you need to rinse the tub, being careful not to leave traces of purple shampoo.

Here’s a list of the top 3 shampoos that will help keep your blonde hair looking like you’re out of the salon today, cool-toned and shiny, healthier in the long run.

Top 3 Best Purple Shampoos

The following shampoos will not damage your hair. Instead, they will hydrate it without adding unnecessary chemicals. That way you will continue to be the best blonde you can be.

#3 Absolute Blonde Ultra-Violet Bath Kerastase Shampoo

The first time I tried this product was many years ago; I bought it from a salon. I remember that it seemed very expensive, but trusting my hairstylist, I said I would try it. So I alternated it with my usual shampoo, and the results lasted about a week.

When using a purple shampoo, I recommend not to forget to apply a moisturizing mask, preferably from the same brand. This Kerastase purple shampoo has a slight tendency to dry hair. The specialists suggest using this shampoo with two other products for blonde hair: 

I didn’t test the mask, but I really liked Cicaplasme. Although it was a bit expensive, I felt it was worth the financial effort. I thought that the hair was no longer fragile and degraded; it was more resistant to breakage and didn’t electrify at every touch. This treatment ensures the thermal protection of the hair, up to 230 ° C, eliminating oxidation and solar radiation.


#2 Moroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo

Moroccanoil Purple Shampoo is specially designed for the unique needs of blonde or gray hair. It does not contain sulfates, gently cleanses the hair while depositing purple pigments to counteract the yellow and orange shades. You must leave it to act for 3-5 minutes. This way, the unwanted tones are neutralized, and the color is protected for a longer time. This shampoo is moisturizing, repairs the hair cuticle, and leaves it shiny, revitalized, and very easy to comb.

The price is a bit higher than the shampoo in the first place, and about the same price as the third place. However, you can use it with the conditioner for hydration and regeneration, which I have had in my hair care routine for many years. Because it has a clean formula, I also use it for my daughter, who has long hair.


#1 L’Oréal Professionnel Blondifier Serie Expert Shampoo

The favorite purple shampoo is the L’Oreal Professionnel Expert Series range. It has an excellent quality/price ratio. You can often find it at a discount at most online stores with hair care products. I like it because it doesn’t dry my hair. I use it alternatively with L’Oreal Professionnel Biotin Inforcer Shampoo. It doesn’t load my hair; it makes enough foam to make my hair feel clean.

I use it together with a moisturizing mask from the same brand, which I apply along the length of my hair.


I chose these three products because I tested them on my hair for a long time, and I could see the effects. They are not the only products on the market, but they are most appreciated.

Over time I have occasionally tested Olaplex, a professional shampoo with the effect of removing reddish, yellow, copper tones from blonde hair. It dried my hair a little, especially at the tips. As an advantage for Olaplex, I mention that my hair only needed one wash per week with this purple shampoo to have the desired effect.
