    Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

    I bought this product in between coloring my hair to diffuse and diminish red brassiness as hair color fades. My hair tends to pull red when color is fading and it isn't an attractive shade. This product appears to prolong my color and keep the red brassiness away.

    Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

    Been dying my hair mahogany brown for years. I decided to go back to my original color which is a medium ash brown. In rotation with my regular shampoo, this has helped tone down the reddish undertones in my hair alot. Red is difficult to get out and this helps in between color jobs without over processing my hair. The only con I have is that I have to use alot of product to saturate my hair. I do have long hair down to my mid back, buy wish this came with more value for your $$$. I would definitely recommend pairing with the matching conditioner.

    Disappointing Blue Shampoo

    Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

    I read the reviews... and I was hoping for something favorable. Sadly that wasn't the case. I dyed my hair a total of three times, two of those times involved extensive bleaching (my hair is the deepest dark brown/probably black) and the final time I did corrective color to achieve a normal lighter brown. I ended up with brassy/red tones and figured this would work. It actually has dimmed down my orange hairs, but in the mist it has stripped my darker dyed hair. This shampoo extremely dries the hair out. It leaves the hair brittle and tangled. Not even the accompanying conditioner is going to alleviate the dryness. You are going to need to deep condition the hair a few times afterwards to get the hair to be somewhat normal again.

      The blue color balance shampoo and conditioner is awesome! It really helped banish my brass! I had orange tones in my highlights and the blue shampoo and conditioner tones it way down!
      A word of caution...it is not moisturizing for processed hair :( Use deep conditioner or regular conditioner after between blue shampoo and conditioner.

        I have a full head of highlights on my naturally very dark brown hair. Joico blue keeps that yucky brass color down and every time it's like I got a fresh highlight

        Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

        After reading all the positive reviews, I was looking forward to this shampoo helping with the orange, brassy tones I have in my ombre/balayaged hair (I'm a natural brunette). While it smells great, it has done nothing to change those tones. I have used it about five times. I've left in on anywhere from 3 minutes to 10 minutes, since some reviewers said to leave it in longer, and still nothing. I hoped it would extend the time in between hair salon appointments, but no such luck. I didn't find it as drying as some claimed, and I just conditioned it as normal after shampooing.

          Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

          I tried the Shimmer Lights shampoo to eliminate the very brassiness of my recent highlighted colored hair. It did not work and it really over dried my hair. I was told it would only work for people with blonde and grey hair. I have naturally dark hair, so it did nothing for me. I tried this product and saw results instantly after one use. It did dry my hair out, but with deep conditioning, it wasn't so bad. The shampoo smelled good to me as well, like leaving the salon kind of scent.
