If you have bleach blonde hair, chances are, you’ll understand the struggle that comes with keeping your locks icy white. The biggest nemesis? Those annoying AF yellow tones that keep creeping up and ruining your ashy blonde vibes.
If you want to neutralise the yellow, it’s important to get your blonde haircare routine on point. We’re talking, the best purple shampoo, a repairing hair mask, and a day-to-day brightening shampoo and conditioner.
Best purple shampoo for bleach blonde hair:
Purple toning shampoos help to counteract and correct any warmth, and leave hair looking white, ashy and cool-toned once again. Here’s a couple of our faves…
: This packs a major purple punch, making it ideal for correcting the worst cases of brassy yellow hair (think, 2 weeks in Ibiza with lots of sun and chlorine. Eek.) Whilst the side of the bottle may tell you to leave it this shampoo on your hair for 5minutes, you only need around 2-3mins to lift warm tones.

Bleach London Silver Shampoo: Don’t be confused by the name on the bottle, it’s purple, not silver. Yup, this deep violet shampoo is seriously effective for balancing white blondes and cancelling out yellowness. Use it every other wash to keep platinum hair bright.
