John Frieda Violet Crush for Blondes Intensive Purple Shampoo Reviews
#17 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.

    Love this

    I really liked this shampoo. I find it comparable to salon products for sure. It really took the brassiness our of my hair. But I used it every time I washed my hair. Which is about twice a week. Great scent, and great price.

    Worked well

    My daughter used this product after getting highlights put in her hair. It kept them looking nice and not brassy. The smell was nice too. Wash out really well though or your hair will have a purple tint to it.

    Good stuff

    Have used John frieda for years but only recently tried this purple shampoo after using many different brands beforehand. Keeps my hair soft but takes away the brassiness, other purple shampoo make my hair feel like straw after using but this doesn't.

    I would buy this product again and again

    I have tried many other purple shampoos for blonde hair and have always had the issue with it making my hair feel dry and damaged and not doing the purpose but this shampoo is so different! I love it, it works great and leaves my hair soft and shiny rather than the competitors

    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.

    Didn't see much of a change

    I really loved the way this shampoo made my hair feel. It smoothed everything out and really cleaned my hair but I didn't see much of a difference when it came to remove any brassiness.

    Removes brass from my blonde highlights

    I found this shampoo overall effective in removing my yellow/orange tones from my blonde highlights. Most other violet shampoos are pretty drying to my curly hair, but this one didn't leave my hair stripped. The only downside is this product is not sulphates-free. Scent was pleasant. Would repurchase.

    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.
