    Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

    I colored my ashy brown hair to a very dark brown, when that color faded I was left with a brassy brown color. Instead of going to the salon for corrective color, I used this. Worked like a charm. Definitely reduced the brassy color to something more natural.

    Made my hair even more brassy

        Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

        Bought this product because they were out of the Purple shampoo, an associate said it would work well with my hair since I was dark previously and went lighter. Thinking this was going to work the same as the purple - I was sadly mistaken, it made my hair very brassy and gave it an orange tint.

        DONT USE THIS IF YOURE PLATINUM

        By Gambinoxgirl

        from Ohio

        Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

        I bought this because it was on sale with the conditioner and I'm always looking for a new product that can brighten my blonde. This stuff turned my hair an ugly shade of green. Super disappointed. I even tried just using the conditioner and not the shampoo but still got the same outcome. Don't waste your money. I'll stick with bed head and matrix products

          Not often does a product do what it claims. But this one did! My hair had salon fresh color after just one use! This & the conditioner will be part of my weekly routine

            I get my hair dyed every month and a half & I used up all my shampoo that I purchased at the salon. I used Joico for the time being and it's had the same results as the salon shampoo, plus it's cheaper!!

              Comments about Joico Color Balance Blue Shampoo:

              Turns my hands blue but after it's lathered it washes right out. If you want a toner shampoo, buy the purple one by Joico.

                      I have very dark hair and got a balayage hoping for an ashy light brown. The stylist did his best, but it was still pulling a lot more of a reddish tint than I'd like. I bought this blue shampoo and after three uses, my hair is the color I was hoping for. My coworkers even noticed and asked if I dyed it again. It's amazing! Doesn't dry my hair at all
