Full Answer

Warm tones in blonde hair are often referred to as brassy tones, and purple shampoo is often marketed specifically to combat these brassy tones. Dark purple shampoo is the most effective tool for banishing undesirable warm tones. Although the shampoo's color is vivid, it does not actually turn the hair purple. The shampoo should be used every other day until the desired tone is reached, and once or twice per week thereafter.

  • Q:

    How can one get white blonde hair?

    A:

    Ultra-light blonde hair that is so thoroughly bleached that it appears white or silvery is difficult to achieve and, for most hair, requires thorough bleaching that many professional stylists are reluctant to perform because it may be damaging to hair, but a cool whitish tone can be achieved with bleached blonde hair through the use of toning products or purple shampoo. Toners will help those with blonde hair remove warm tones, including brassy shades such as red, yellow or orange tones, from the hair, leaving a cool blonde shade that is closer to white than a more yellowy, warm blonde color. Purple shampoo and conditioner can also give users a similar result, toning down blonde colors to be cooler and closer to a silver or white shade.
