Top Hair tips by Joan: Using Purple shampoo. HI All, I was asked to share some tips on purple shampoo, drying your own hair, and coconut oil. Anything else you want please just message our team and we can see what we can do. When using a purple shampoo be mindful: * These are highly concentrated with a purple pigment, or it is purple pigment and also meaning the pH is slightly higher than our normal shampoo and our shampoo we use is our key product for the hair. * Purple shampoo has no re constructing agent in any that is on the market to buy at present. So it does not condition your hair it just cleans it off with the pigment, so it can dry out the hair, so only use it every 2 – 3 weeks if even. If using it any more than this you may need a clarifying shampoo to remove any build up and to add moisture. Clean it off. You can use it on your root area more if this is warmer. * Be mindful that if your hair is very dry or white on the ends, that this pigmented shampoo can grab on to the hair and turn it a mucky or grey tone. Like white tops or clothes in a wash with other colours. If this happens use a clarifying shampoo. If you do not have a clarifying shampoo, apply 2 teaspoons of baking powder to your normal shampoo and mix it in and this will act as a clarifying shampoo. * If applying purple shampoo to the hair apply into the root first and leave there while you have your body shower if you want, you can add water to emulsify the pigment or dilute it and leave on the ends for a further 5 or 10 minutes . However that is if the hair is very white or dry and you want a quick coating on that area of the hair shaft. * if your hair is more yellow or orange tones, and is in good nick, then you can apply to the mid ends and ends while you have your body shower to let it clean the hair off. SO leave it on longer. * AS per our colour star in hairdressing training or within any painting knowledge, we know that violet tone cancels yellow tones so this is why the colour of this shampoo is purple to do just this. Note that different brands of purple shampoo have diff levels of pigmentation of this purple , some you can then leave on longer than others. Xx
