Honest reviews


Awful-don’t do it.

These were shipped in a plastic bag with just the tops covered in plastic wrap so they aren’t sealed, appears as though they were opened by someone. Having highlights in my hair I’m used to purple shampoo but this didn’t help at all! Maybe it’s just for white hair or I got a defective product. I have to say though as another posted stated, (my fault for reading reviews AFTER I order stuff lol) this STINKS like all day I smelled like a thrift store or something. Normally shampoo smells don’t stick around but unfortunately this one does. In the end my highlights still appear yellow instead of bright white and it’s not that long after my last highlight so I think this product isn’t worth it. And forget ten dollars s&h for two small shampoo bottles!

Stains hair purple

I’m not sure if they changed the formula or if my hair is changing over the years. This shampoo and conditioner used to work perfectly for me, even when using it 3 times a week. Now, after one use, it turns the lightest blonde parts of my hair purple. Once I run out of these I’ll be looking for something that won’t stain my hair after one washing.The good news is the purple does seem to wash out after regular shampooing.

works on bleached yellow/orange hair!!

I would give this more stars if I could.RECAP: I bleached my hair an it was light YELLOW blonde on roots and a darker yellow blonde on the ends. I used the shampoo for 10 mins then the conditioner for 20. It took away ALL the brassy/orange/yellow.DETAILS: I have been dying my hair dark brown for years. I wanted to go blonde but do it slowly so my hair wouldn’t be damaged. I stopped dying my hair for 9+ months since my roots weren’t too terrible they kind of blended since my natural hair is now a dark dark ash blonde. I started highlighting my hair once a month for 4 months but it was taking to long and it was still really dark and verrrry orange and brassy on the ends. I finally got the courage to bleach it and it took 3 bleaches since the bleach I was using SUCKED wich I only realized when I did the 3rd bleach :/So the top was a very yellow blonde and the ends were orange yellow.After I used the shimmer lights it took away literally all of the brassy colors and now I have a nice rich blonde especially on the ends where it was orangey.And yes it smells and is very drying but your not buying it to strengthen your hair, you buying it to take out brassyness and it works so stop complaining sheesh. And the whole gagging over the smell…ridiculous. It’s not that bad.

Great product

Shampoo works great. Removed the brass color in my gray hair. Made hair very shinny and silver. Conditioner works just as well. Made my gray hair fuller looking and softer.

Perfect for blonde.

This shampoo is really nice with my bleach blonde hair! it’s kept it from turning that yellow that every blonde despises.the main flaw i found with it is that the shampoo leaked everywhere! it didnt appear to be broken (it wasnt broken) but it was everywhere in the bag they both came in.doesn’t smell like fruity or nice, but the smell doesnt bother me, it does wonders on toning my hair!i’ll definitely be buying again, though!

A miracle!

I just purchased this product from sally’s and used it once. Just from the one use (of which, I didn’t leave the product on for more than a minute) my newly bleached and colored hair is lighter and brighter! Despite the reviews on here, the shampoo and conditioner do not smell bad at all. (I assumed people were being dramatic, and I was right)In fact, my husband loves the smell of it, so that’s a big bonus! Also despite the reviews here, the product doesn’t stain the shower or your hair. (I assumed this probably only happened to people who didn’t use the product correctly or clean their showers, I was right again) All-in-all, I am very happy with this product and if you feel any hesitation with purchasing, don’t!

Makes your hair gray if you’re not careful. I find this does remove yellow and tone blonde hair, but it does so very unevenly – leaving streaks of a darker gray and streaks of untouched yellow in your hair, even if you follow the directions exactly. Was worth a try but I probably wouldn’t but it again.

It was not as expected

Product turned my hair and everything in my shower purple. I rinsed my hair with no results and had to wash it many times to get the product out. The shower washed easily enough.
