Rated 4.06 out of 5 stars
I recently tried out this purple product brand by Clairol called Shimmer Lights. I generally do not have an issue with brassiness, however, I did try this and I did notice my hair was a bit brighter after using. With any product, I do feel results vary and I highly recommend you consulting with your hair stylist prior to using a new product like this on your color treated hair. Results are temporary but I'd still get advisement. Everybody's hair is different and depending on your color and texture I feel like it's important that you are educated if this is correct type of product for you and how to best to use it. When consulting with my stylist, she did mention she heard good things about this product, however, some results stated that their hair felt dry. To be honest, I did follow up with my own conditioner at the end. My hair is so thick that if I do not use my regular salon brand conditioner, I would never get a comb through it LOL Therefore, I did not find this product drying. Overall, I did like this product.
Bought to replace a prior more expensive branded purple conditioner. Used a palm full but barely covered my short hair. Let it set as I always do while I finish my shower. Went to rinse it and immediately felt the course texture of my wet hair. I could barley run my fingers through it. After showering and wrapping I went to add my product and had same issue of pulling comb through hair. After drying I noticed my roots were showing and could tell that it had actually stripped my hair and I had to redo my roots a week in advance. After blow drying my hair has pasty and wouldn't flat iron. I returned and Ulta took back graciously. I don't know if the LOT was just bad, because the associate said she had used it and just needed to add more of it, but this was the worst hair productive I've ever used. Lots of people like it so I'd just say try it and see what happens....

Love this conditioner. It can dual as a toner if you know how to do so. It does help keep the yellowing and brassiness out of your blonde hair. So I recommend to all the Blondies or those with blonde in their hair. It also smells nice and fresh like flowers!

This product does its job but can pull your hair a bit too green y blue. Might be better for someone with even lighter blonde!

This conditioner goes withe the brand's shampoo. My hair feels good and the overall color is vastly improved.

A very great yellow out. Would definitely recommend for people with grey hair or people who just went platinum blonde no improvements

This left my hair in horrible shape. It didn't moisturize at all. My hair is a frazzled mess because of this conditioner.

I use the Shimmer Lights shampoo, lathering up first thing when I get in the shower. I leave it on my hair through my entire shower and then rinse and condition. It leaves a subtle lavender tint to my hair which others notice.

I haven't reviewed too many things, I just don't have time or the interest. BUT, very disappointed in both the shampoo and conditioner. They smell cheap and are both very drying. As far as hair appearance, it's nothing special. I get better results from other brands that are similar in price, but smell way better and makes hair feel a lot softer. I don't understand how this product got any decent reviews.

Good purple conditioner to help keep the brassy and green out of blonde but does have a more chemical smell than what I would like. It does the job and is reasonably priced. I mainly use when I notice color changes in my blonde which is does a good job of helping remove

Clairol shimmer lights conditioner does work as a purple conditioner for brass. I tried it with the shampoo however the conditioner does not condition your hair at all. I feel like it dries it out more as the shampoo does dry your hair a bit the conditioner seems worse.

I bought this because my natural hair has red hues, and my bayalage was beginning to turn orange/yellow in the bleached parts. Not cute!!! Used this product twice in the shower leavening on for a total of 5 minutes both times and I can definitely notice those unwanted undertones disappearing. 10/10

I have always been leery of trusting purple shampoo and conditioner but let's talk about this brand. This year I went from a brown (with a blue frame) to a bleach blond, to a vibrant red (my goal) back to a bleach blond (unintentionally). After just a couple washes, it completely stripped the color. It blew my mind. I know what you're thinking "yeah that's what it's supposed to do." If I wanted to maintain the red, why use this? Well it was all we had at a point in time.

I always used this along with the Shimmer Lights Purple Shampoo, and it really toned my hair pretty well since it has dark violet pigment. Had to give it 4 stars because of the smell.

I absolutely love this product! It leaves my hair soft and shiny and doesnt strip the color out. It doesnt smell bad either. The value for the money is good.

Honestly, I did not like this conditioner. I did feel like it helped with the tone of my hair. But, I had to use so much of it. My hair felt sooo dry after it.

Good color but the smell isn't my favorite so it deters me from using it. Other than that it was a good product.

Helps with blonde and silver/grey hair. I really love it! It takes about the brassy color of blonde hair. Don't use it everyday because you truly can tell a difference with one wash! So great one of the best purple shampoos I've used,
dianaa24 from undisclosed
This line of products is one of my favorites for maintaining silver hair. Seriously love it all in combination together to get a not too purple ash blonde color.
daniellem132 from undisclosed
This has been my favorite purple shampoo I have ever used! Helps with my color tremendously!! This is a must buy for anyone looking for a good purple shampoo!!

I really don't like it so much! Smells good but it doesn't work in my hair. I gave it a try 3 times but nothing at all.
lifestylechicness from undisclosed
Very good. Works well. I own and use weekly. Perfect for the blonde color I use to color my hair.
jlaw_beauty from undisclosed
It made my hair so dry and did not help the brassy colors in my hair. I really would not recommend, I don't care if the price is cheap. For hair care, you get what you pay for - and while it says professional on the bottle, my stylist would never use this on my head.
cynthiab1 from undisclosed
Not the best product for blondes. I use redkin instead. This did nothing to my hair. Price is what you pay for! Awful. They need to improve the product. It's affordable but like I said it did nothing for my hair

This is the only conditioner I will use on my hair after bleaching it or putting any blonde color on my hair takes all the yellow brassiness out of my hair I also use shimmer lights shampoo the two together work great ￼
