      Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

      This product prevents lightened brown hair from turning orange or brassy.
      I have naturally black hair and dyed my hair brown. I use this product (together with its conditioner) 4 times a week for a couple of months already and it is really effective on preventing and eliminating brassy tones.

      Keeps Orange Tones At Bay

      • Eliminating Orange Tones

      Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

      I naturally have very dark brown hair. I recently had a honey blonde balayage done to my hair. After washing a couple of times with regular shampoo and conditioner, I noticed certain parts of my hair pulling orange tones. Used this to combat the orange and it definitely works. I use it once a week and leave it on approximately 10-15 mins and massage it onto the sections that I feel are more orange toned. I think that this blue shampoo worked better with my hair than the purple shampoo.

          Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

          This shampoo helps preserve my hair color, which is medium brown naturally but lightened to dark blonde. The water where I live has high iron content and begins turning my hair brassy after just a few shampooings following a hair appointment. The blue shampoo counteracts the orange tones and keeps my color truer. I use it with the blue conditioner about twice a week. It is very gentle and leaves my hair soft, manageable and shiny.

            Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

            I purchased this product after a bad color job at a salon that left my hair balayaged orange and brassy instead of blonde. It was a hold-over until I could schedule with someone else for color correction. It took a few washes before I saw a change in the tone, but it was effective in calming down the brassiness. Certainly not as much as I would have liked, but it helped. I continue to use it 2x a week to keep my highlights bright. I typically air dry after as I've found this product very drying on my hair. I always used a heat protectant as well so as not to further damage it with styling tools. Definitely use with the conditioner.

            Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

            Does its job.... subtly. Not an immediate fix for orange/red undertones... but I will say, I wash my hair twice a week, and I use it each time. The orangy red (after bleaching my hair twice) has decreased slightly with each wash. It is very drying- as most toners are, so I suggest with each use, use a deep conditioner and let sit for about 5 minutes minimum. hair looks and feels great after conditioner. product smells awesome. nice to have a blue option for all of us that pull orange red... I would recommend as a supplemental/maintenance product, not a correction product... the pictures may be deceiving.... lighting a cameras show a larger difference than real life.... maintain expectations....

                  This is by far the most damaging product I've ever used. I just got a haircut and it completely damaged my ends making it look like I haven't had a haircut in months. It left residue in my hair that I cannot wash out and it did not eliminate the Orange briassly tone.
