John Frieda Violet Crush for Blondes Intensive Purple Shampoo Reviews
#26 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.

    Blonde shampoo John Frieda

    Review

    My first impressions of this shampoo were wow, the colour of the shampoo like all purple shampoos is such a stunning shimmery deep purple colour I absolutely love it, I was super excited to try this as I’m always looking for new toning shampoos to keep my blonde hair looking as good as when I get it done at the salon.

    I love the scent of this shampoo it reminds me of their “go blonder” spray by John Frieda I use to use years ago. The scent isn’t too over whelming so if you aren’t a fan of scents you would still be able to use this as the scent is light and subtle it smells floraly and summery.

    I washed my hair as normal using the purple shampoo, I did as instructed and left it on for about a minute or two to give the purple pigments a minute to work their magic and then I rinsed it off as normal, it didn’t stain my skin round my hair line which is good as I know some dyes and shampoos can do that.

    The bottle is really big for the price and compared to other brand you get a lot more product so I definitely think it’s great value for money and will last you a long time before running out.

    I styled and dried my hair as normal after rinsing the product out and I could definitely see a difference in my hair it was a lot shinier and more cooled down than before (for reference my hair is about a level 8/9 light blonde not your typical bright white blonde) my hair appeared more silvery and the yellow and orange tones were more toned and cancelled out, there wasn’t a drastic difference however there was still definitely a difference in my hair. This was my first use and it turned out nice so I will continue to use it and see if my hair gets even more toned over time with continuous use but I do have high hopes for this product so far.

    Overall I love this shampoo for my blonde hair so far and can’t wait to continue using it I definitely prefer it to other drug store blonde shampoos and see a bigger difference in the tone of my hair.

    Eliminates yellow tones

    This bright purple shampoo has a fruity floral scent and creates a really rich & creamy lather. I leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing and after just one use the crushed violet tone has completely neutralised the brassy/yellow tones in my dyed blonde hair so that my blonde shade is cooler, brighter and looks much more natural. It also leaves my dry hair feeling really soft and looking shiny and frizz free. Would highly recommend to anyone with dyed blonde hair like mine which is always prone to brassiness.

    Brilliant

    This purple shampoo is a big yes from me. You really dont need alot of it and it foams so much even with long hair. Its smooth and easy to massage into the hair. The colour is a dark purple meaning its quite generous with the amount of toner in. Not getting ripped off with a slight tinge of light purple. It didnt leave my hair dry or damaged it was quite soft and moisturised suprisingly. Then the results were great just after the first use. Definately left my hair a lighter, non brassy blonde straight away. Brilliant stuff.

    Big Difference For Brassy Blondes

    I was skeptical about trying this product as I have used many types of purple shampoo including Fanola, which I loved but couldn't stand the smell of! This shampoo has everything! The smell is quite sweet and more than bearable. The texture is much the same as any other John Frieda product but this is definitely the most effective one I've used on my hair. It left my hair in a shiny and very ashy blonde condition which was exactly what I was after! I will definitely be purchasing this product again once this bottle is finished.

    Great for blondes

    Works rather well. I found using it 2 or 3 times made a noticeable difference from brassy to cleaner blonde hair. Has a lovely scent to it aswell. Would make a huge difference using a purple conditioner alongside it

    Goodbye gingery blonde!

    I left this in for a few minutes longer than recommended and my hairs come out a lush silvery colour, I’ve tried every purple shampoo out there and Bleach London has always been at the top but this is definitely up there with it.
