Blue Shampoo Reduces Brassiness/Orange

      Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

      I've been highlighting my hair for so many years, eventually you learn a thing or two, Blue shampoo is designed to town down brass or orange colors. Google Hair Color Wheel - Blue tones Orange, Purple Tones Yellowish, and then there is red and green - if you are naturally brunette and bleach your hair, but want to go back to dark, you need a filler or protein to dye your hair with RED to add pigment back, then you can dye over it to then go back to brown or dark - if not you will be left with the dreaded greenish-muddy color! Hope this helps anyone considering to try this to fix or correct any issues. And for silver hair or very light blonde always look for something sheer blonde, but most of the time Purple works fine. & this should NOT be used daily, 1-2 times a week. Also look into Wella Color Charm Toners. Toners will level your shade and these shampoos will remove any off colors.

            My hair is slowly turning grey and I've come into the salon to add some grey highlights so it looks a little more natural and so I don't look like a skunk . They lady that did my hair told me to wash with this about every 4 washes to keep the blonde from turning yellow and I've washed with it twice and literally see no change....

                Thought purple was for blondes but was told with red hints mixed in blonde to use the blue & it's really amazing!!! Smells good & lathers very good. Takes brass look out of blonde due to red tint pieces next to each other

                      I am glad I bought this, after getting highlights my hair had too many orange brassy tones. This shampoo and conditioner neutralized them and left me with pretty highlights. I left them on for about 2 minutes each.

                        So far the shampoo has been great but my only gripe is that it turned my hands blue. I was able to get some of it off with a body scrub but the day is almost done and my hands have a noticeable blue tinge. I will probably wear gloves next time just to be safe.

                          • Highlighted/Frosted Dark Brown Hair

                          Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

                          I've been using a purple shampoo for years when I frost my hair. While they "suffice," they're definitely not on par with the Joico Blue Shampoo/Conditioner combo. In all seriousness, I have received 10x more compliments on my hair using this product in combination with Frost-n-Glow for Dark Hair ($30 spent in total) than I have when I've spent over $150 at the salon. Blue shampoo is *amazing* for my dark brown hair when I've used a highlighting kit (pull-through cap style) on it. Directly after frosting/highlighting (bleaching) your hair...rinse it out and follow the instructions on the Frost-n-Glow kit. Use the included conditioning shampoo that came with the highlighting kit, and don't wash your hair for 48 hours. Then, use the Joico blue shampoo. Important:::::: **Leave it in your hair for the full 3 minutes, even the shampoo**. Rinse...use the conditioner and leave in for 5 minutes and rinse. Repeat *every day* for 5 days, and then twice a week. This stuff is "awesome sauce".
