Most Helpful Positive Review THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
I have tried all sorts of purple shampoo including the perfectly platinum by Monat (which sucks!!) I waisted all that money until I tried the Punky Coluor yellow out. I bleached my ends to about a 7 so they get really brassy I have dark brown hair so naturally it happens. This makes my highlights so cool like I've used a toner, but better because it doesn't damage your hair. I love it so much, it lasts only two washes though :(
Most Helpful Critical Review Back to the store it went
If you have light colored sinks, countertops, or anything light colored that this will come in contact with it will stain if you don't clean up right away—. I purchased this as I have a lot of deposited yellow in my hair from going too long in between coloring (about 3 weeks overdue) and It did nothing the label stated it would do. The only positive thing to this product was my son laughing at me with purple everywhere looking like I had murdered Barney in the kitchen. Cut some trash bags up and cover the area you are working in as this is very colored.
Reviewed by 38 customers AMAZING! so glad I found it!

I read the reviews... And decided it was a 50/50 either going to work or give me some purple, both would have been ok with me. But this turned out to be hands down the best timing shampoo I've ever used! No purple left in hair just the perfect shade of blonde, no more golden!!!
Effective but I don't recommend to women with porous hair
Ash from SC
This product is effective but not in a good way. In some spots on my hair it will turn it purple, others leaves it super brassy, other spots it tones it perfectly until the next wash. I think this would be great if my hair was a dark enough blonde that I didn't have to worry about purple streaks. This stuff is pretty much semi permanent purple hair dye watered down with conditioner. Which would be great if you had purple hair actually. But if your hair is blonde blonde blonde, and has a lot of gold and yellow tones I wouldn't recommend cause if you've bleached recently your hair is probably porous and will just want to turn purple in some places
Shellster from Richmond
I recently decided to go platinum with an at home kit. My hair was more yellow than white unfortunately. This shampoo calmed down the brassiness. I was happy with the results for the price.
It toned my hair very quickly!
Je from Ca
This product worked like a charm.
I have ash blonde balayaged hair. I applied it on dry hair and also did some sectioning.
I tried it first on my lower sections of my hair for 3 minutes and when I washed it off, it was very very close to dark silver. Now when I got on my top section, I then just set if for around 2 minutes and I got my desired color.
Also a tip, if you want the faded effect on your hair growth, I would suggest to apply the toner first on the ends and apply the toner last on the growth area of your dark hair.
You also need to be quick when you apply because the toner will be absorbed quickly if you have bleached hair.
Lastly, don't be afraid to use a lot. Saturation is key to avoid missing small sections of your hair.
Do you want brass gone?!
Sarah from Dfw
I have platinum hair. Use this if you don't want brassy blonde. IT. WORKS. LIKE. A. DREAM.
Best purple product
CC Mom from Rancho Cucamonga
This is the best purple product I've found. Although if to leave it in too long your hair will turn purple.
Tb from California
I was super skeptical about this. I'm never sure if reviews are real or not. I was so excited to use this product and am soooo glad I did. I will forever use this product. I dyed my hair hot pink and it all washed out but still had tones of orange and brassy. This product took everything out and made my hair completely blonde again. Sooo happy. I will be a loyal user.
Love it but be careful
Carter from Seattle, WA
This is the most effective toning product I've found, personally, and I've tried a ton of them. I always end up with some brassiness in my hair, because my hair is naturally quite dark and is lifted to light blonde. This product, as others have warned, is very pigmented, so you have to be careful. I use it between shampooing and conditioning, because I find that it doesn't really work well as a shampoo/conditioner as it claims. I would do a strand test beforehand to see how long it needs to stay in your hair. I leave it on for about 5 min, but if it stays on even a little longer than that, the more platinum parts of my hair end up lavender. But it is very effective at toning the brassiness, and the purple fades quickly with washing. It can be a bit messy to work with because of its consistency. But overall it is the quickest and easiest toning product I've used, and the price is reasonable as well.
Kristiana from California
worked wonders on my hair, love this product so much!!
Luhhndynn from Springville, Utah
Holy moly this stuff is DARK and will stain your hands, shower, whatever it touches if you don't wash it off IMMEDIATELY. I left it in while shaving my legs and when I washed it out I was like ooooohhhhhh man! My hair was grey/lavender. Not necessarily a bad thing but I'm definitely going to dilute it next time. So beware!
if i could give it 0 stars i would
lauren from cypress, TX
absolutely awful. i have blonde hair and it was a little brassy so i bought this, it did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! do not waste your money!
Nic from New York
I've used many purple shampoos and this one just turned my hair DARKER! Not even purple, but my hair looked brown.
Did not take the orange away, just turned my hair purple
Mad from Scranton
Used it in my hair for a maximum of five minutes and the lightest parts of my hair were bright purple. I still had orange and yellow tones through my hair.
Works really well!
Annie from Utah
Do a strand test!! What can take 4 minutes for one person might only take 2 minutes for someone else!
I left mine in for 10 minutes to get it as purple and cool as I could before adding their grey shade and it worked perfectly!
Vero from Orlando, FL
Definitely gets brassy yellow out
Lily from Rhode Island
I worked hard to do my own hair and get it to be a nice shade of blonde. I just needed some toning. I like punky colours dye but this has ruined my day. I washed my hair last night and woke up to purple patches. I am beyond frustrated. I don't want purple hair.
Works like a charm!
Lizz from San Antonio, Tx
I have very dark hair so when I bleach it, it's tough to get the brassy tones out. I've tried every single purple(and blue) shampoo and toners and none have worked. I applied it dry, left it on for about 5min and it worked like a charm!
Turned my hair Purple
Bridget from Pittsburgh
My hair is silverish platinum and had faded to a yellowish blonde, so I tried this on my ends to try and get them to match the top part of my head. Nonetheless, it turned my ends PURPLE after leaving it on for 4 minutes. I give it three stars because while I did not do what it said it would (neutralize yellow) the purple looks really nice!
Literally the best one ever
Kass from Texas
LOVE THIS ENDLESSLY. Literally the best toning shampoo I've ever used. I've used the pink Punky Colour shampoo for a while and love it.
Went back to blonde and used this for toning. It will definitely make white platinum hair purple after about two minutes (like my ends where the pink was before it faded) but it washed out easily with my normal shampoo.
Back to pink now but I'm keeping this in hand for toning the blonde whenever I go back to it.
Does what it promises.
DeeQueen from JOMO
It does what it promises to do. i love this hair line and the wash in colors are wonderful. This too didn't let me down and even after only one use...it was already less "yellow" and "brassy".
Love it very gentle on your hair deposits color!
PJ from Washington
Really like this product. Useing it to grow out the grey. The light grey is very purple the darker ends are more of a tinted color. Have fragile hair due to Lupus and meds. This has been great. I use gloves apply carefully useing a color brush. I add a few drops of water let it sit on my stubborn grey for ten minutes then add more to ends and wash out. This worked better than the same brand in the jar. Not sure why?
Great- if you know how to use it.
Sydbey from Portland
This is meant for BRASSY hair. If you already have your desired tone of blonde, you will not like what it does.
turned my hair purple
cindy from LA
didn't even leave in for more than 5 minutes and now my hair is purple
Just the thing!
TropiGal from Greer, SC
Used this on both my highlighted hair and a hairpiece. It achieved the ash tones I was looking for but you can get unexpected results. The longer you leave it in, the stronger the toning. It may grab at the ends or damaged hair too, for uneven toning. Thank goodness it can be washed out within a couple washes. A good addition to your hair coloring Arsenal.
Lola from Moreno Valley
After just one use of this it literally took out almost all of my brassy tones in my hair and gave a silvery undertone! Really good highly recommended! :)
