John Frieda Violet Crush for Blondes Intensive Purple Shampoo Reviews
#18 in Shampoo

Description

Knock out stubborn brassy tones in 1 use for cooler, brighter blonde.

With crushed violet and blue pigments, this rich intensive formula reduces both yellow and orange tones to keep blonde looking cooler and brighter. Safe for use on natural, colour treated, platinum blonde, and lightened brunette hair. Peroxide-free and ammonia-free formula.

HOW TO USE: Gently massage into wet hair, lather, and rinse well. For more intense results, and to fight stubborn brassiness, leave shampoo on hair for 2-3 minutes. Use daily until your desired colour result is achieved. To maintain those results, use this shampoo daily. For best results, follow with Violet Crush Purple Conditioner.

Rinse hands immediately after applying shampoo to hair to avoid purple pigment on your hands.

    Brassy tones are gone

    I have been using John Frieda Violet Crush Purple Shampoo for a number of months now and it is one of the most cost effective purple shampoos I have found and more importantly it works on my fine hair. I have a problem with shampoos weighing my hair down because it is so fine but John Frieda Violet Crush Purple Shampoo takes all the brassy tones out of my blonde/grey hair without leaving it dry like other purple shampoos I have tried. I highly recommend John Frieda Violet Crush Purple Shampoo and it won’t break the bank when you purchase it.

    A good basic purple shampoo

    I was given the opportunity to try out John Frieda’s Intense Purple Shampoo, Violet Crush for Blondes for free. I wash my hair about 1-2 times per week to maintain colour and health. I’ve tried A LOT of blonde shampoos, salon brands and your regular department store options. I was initially surprised (and pleased) to see this one was actually a vivid purple, normally you only get this in the premium salon brands. After a few uses I was pretty happy with results, I did notice a slight difference in lessening my brassy tones. I would definitely recommend this for any blondes new to the purple shampoo realm. That being said it was not as good as my premium brand at reducing brassy tones or maintaining the ashiness I look for. As soon as I used my high end shampoo I noticed an immediate improvement and for that reason alone I’ll be sticking with my premium brand.

    Purple Shampoo

    This purple shampoo is great for being rid of those orange:brassy tones out of your hair. The only problem is it’s pretty drying to your hair so I recommend using a very nourishing Conditioner.

    Silver shampoo equivalent?

    I was recommended this blonder shampoo however I think it's highly priced for the results. Although as a basic shampoo it worked well, I would rather spend a lot less to get a product that would have the same results.

    Banish Brassiness

    I've used a lot of John Frieda products so was interested to try this to see how it would help with brassy tones on my blonde hair. First off, it's a huge tube so will last for ages. The decadent purple shampoo feels rich and nourishing when using, and tones down brassy tones, leaving my hair with cooler ashy tones.

    It seems good!

    I’m not sure if it worked on the first wash but after the second time using it, it seemed to have taken some brassiness away. The smell and texture was really lovely though! All in all, it’s a nice product!

    Great texture and apperance

    At first I used this as a standalone shampoo in place of my own but I felt it didn't clean my hair properly so the next time I sued it after washing my hair with my current shampoo and the results were a lot better. I can definitely notice a difference in my bleached hair and the violet pigment does adjust the sharper yellow tones. I really love the look of the liquid, a very shiny purple with an iridescent flick and the viscosity is perfect. Very pleasant smelling unlike some purple shampoos.
