    No more brass

    This shampoo works perfectly for keeping that brassy tone at bay with my balayage. Works like a charm and it's very thick so a little bit goes a long way.

    I love this purple shampoo!

    I've tried numerous purple shampoos (a regular rotation must for blondes) and Clairol has a home run with their version. Shimmer lights is light, easy to use and doesn't stain hands, (nor my light coloured shower curtain 👍) This is truly my favourite purple shampoo as of yet and I'm a repeat buyer. I would love to see it be a bit more effective on first use so it doesn't have to be repeated for a few shampoos in a row ( my finding ) but until I find one that hits it out of the park, my loyalty lies here with Shimmering lights 💕

    This stuff works!

    As a natural brunette, I had to combat brass after I went blonde. I tried so many different purple shampoos but none of them made much of an impact, until I found Shimmer Lights. This stuff is amazing, takes virtually all yellow tones out in one use, and if you have some more intense warmth in your hair just leave it on in the shower for 5-10 minutes and it’s gone!

    Always use this

    I love this purple shampoo because it actually works to get the brassy-ness out of my blonde hair. The only downfall is that it kind of dries out my hair but I still use it and just deep condition my hair once a week. If I’m feeling really brassy I will put it on my hair dry, but you have to be careful not to leave it on too long because it can turn it purple.

    Hands-Down the Best for Blondes

    I have tried many purple shampoos for my ash-blonde ombre hair, and this one stands out as the best. I have tried a number of brands, tints, etc and this one still stands out from the crowd. The purple pigment is super rich, and is absolutely the most effective at zapping yellow and brassy tones from blonde or silver/white hair. Helps me extend the life of my hair before going to the salon. Always worth the trip to the specialty store to purchase, and definitely worth every penny!

    Best for blonde hair

    This is ultimately my favorite shampoo to use on blonde hair.. it gets all the yellow gold tone out to keep my hair a nice white tone.. it also works great as a toner on dry hair. It does dry the hair out a little. But I use it once a week. I mix some of it with regular shampoo for daily washing to prevent drying out but keeping the light blonde shade. I've tried almsot every purple shampoo and always go back to this one.. been using it for 6years now.. and nothing better than this..

    Horrible

    Shimmer lights is awful. I find I have to use way to much for any sort of result and it dries my hair out so bad that I have to deep condition just to get a brush through it. Shimmer lights is definitely not the go to for blonde hair anymore.

    Brass gone but Purple present

    Everyone’s hair is different and I usually don’t like giving a bad review. I left the shampoo in for the time indicated and also used the conditioner as directed and everyone it would leave significant traces of purp’e In my hair. It did not only take out the brass but it left deposits in my hair. I would recommend buying a salon shampoo for platinum blond hair.

    Highly recommend

    I've used this shampoo everytime I've gone from dark to light hair and it is amazing. It's difficult to dye hair from dark to light without it turning it orange at first. I've used this shampoo and it makes such a difference. Everytime I used it I get asked if I've dyed my hair again because the results are so drastic. If you already have bleach blonde hair and try to use it, it may make your hair look a bit purple though.

    BEST PURPLE SHAMPOO EVER

    i was given this shampoo when i was younger after i died my hair (originally brunette died blonde). i absolutely raved and loved this stuff back then. Then i decided to stop dying my hair for almost 10 years and when i decided this year before my wedding to dye my hair blonde again my hair dresser recommended i try this shampoo. she gave me the bottle and OMG was i ever excited and shocked! this product is still around and works just as great as it did when i was younger! I LOVE THIS STUFF>. no brassy colours, always fresh and blonde. love it
