Most Helpful Positive Review Very good!
First time using a purple shampoo. I lathered and let it sit in the shower. Then rinsed and washed with another shampoo, then washed with the Clairol again. Grown out highlights are looking more bright. Awesome price, as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!
IT HAD TAKEN ME 8 YEARS TO GET MY BEAUTIFUL HEAD OF HAIR TO MY WAIST. IT WAS WAVY, AND WAS SO FULL IT WOULD TAKE THE LARGEST PONYTAIL HOLDER I COULD FIND TO GO ROUND IT. NOW I CAN NOT KEEP IT UP WITH THE TINIEST CLIP I CAN FIND. MY PONYTAIL IS NO LARGER THAN A PENCIL!!! IT IS BROKEN, FRIZZY, AND EXTREMELY DRY. I WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND ASKED FOR A COMPLETE BLOOD TEST, AS WELL AS EVERY THYROID TEST AVAILABLE!! IT WASN'T CHEAP!!! EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT!! THIS SHAMPOO COULD BE THE ONLY THING CAUSING IT!! I HAVE USED IT ONCE A WEEK FOR ABOUT A YEAR. IT HAS TOTALLY RUINED MY HAIR. I AM EMBARRASSED TO LEAVE MY HOME!! I LOST SO MUCH, MY BROTHER IN LAW HAD TO CLEAN THE TUB DRAINS, AND MY SISTERS VACUUM HAD OVER AN INCH OF HAIR ROUND THE ROLLER. IT HAS BEEN HORRIBLE THE LAST 6 MONTHS!! PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!
Reviewed by 1894 customers Overwhelming smell
Angie D from Indiana
Just used it for the first time this morning and plan to promptly exchange it because of the smell. Any of you gals in your 30s remember the smell of 90's Clairol shampoos and conditioners (especially the ones that came in the box color)? It hasn't changed. It is strong and overwhelming. I bought it because I consider myself as having a strong stomach, but I was nauseated. I gave it two stars because it was a reasonable price. But that's all I could muster.

This is my absolute favorite purple shampoo!! It doesnt dry my hair out like other toning shampoos Ive used. Its very affordable!! The color last a while.

I'm a natural blonde but even so my blonde can get dull and not as bright and this helps. It's brightens my natural highlights as well.

Tones my hair so well and eliminates yellow & brass! I have tried a lot of purple shampoos but this is the best I have tried! If I had to pick an improvement possibly the smell but thats not bad. Would buy again.

I love it helps my blonde highlights look good both thats i I believe. To improve it is to make it softer shampoo and make it scented. It is long lasting because only use it once a week and Im satisfied.

Hands down this shampoo is insanity exceptionally amazing it not only moisturizes (without dulling and completely drying out highlighted strands) but it brightens and lightens them immediately! Use twice a week try to just follow with leave in conditioner (its a ten) if you can afford it I cant but find a dupe and Air-dry! Started using it a few months back and it wowed me!
I like it!
kayleecf9fa from undisclosed
I like this product I do not love it but I like that you can get it without having to go to a salon and it does keep my hair fairly yellow and not brassy but I am not completely sold on it it does well for the color but not the moisturizing

This was the first ever purple shampoo I used when I was in cosmetology school and it has been a consistent repurchase. My top recommendation when looking for a cost effective toning shampoo. I will say, its not as hydrating as Id like, but still a solid product.

This product is exactly what it says it is. This shampoo is for BLONDE hair and in conclusion of this product it one if my favorites.
Fav for over 20 years!

Ive been using this on my hair since the late 80s ! There are so many brands making purple shampoo but Clairol has always done the job for me. It neutralizes the yellow and brassy look. They also have a conditioner that I havent tried but eventually will. It will dry your hair out so I only use once or twice a week. It makes my scalp dry and itchy if I use it anymore then that. But twice a week gets the job done and I use a deep conditioner after. Its more like a treatment. [product:shimmer-lights-purple-shampoo-for-blonde-&-silver-hair]

Shimmer Light Shampoo - Blonde/Silver 31.5 oz. (Pack of 6) really does the trick it tones my hair and keeps my blonde from turning brassy. It isn't the best for day to day shampoo as it doesn't clarify your hair the best especially when you don't wash your hair everyday also and it doesn't smell the best

This is my MUST have shampoo when having platinum hair. It gets rid of all those brassy undertones and leaves your hair looking a beautiful ashy color!
works as a toner but very drying
juliam205 from undisclosed
I used this at the recommendation of my stylist. I have almost black hair and it definitely kept my cool tone foliage from getting brassy. Also the price is awesome. But when I used this it felt extremely chemically and the smell was bad. Also it severely dries out my hair. I still use it because the price is great but I make sure to do a hair mask on the nights I use it.
lisac83 from undisclosed
I am impressed!! It really does keep the brassiness away. I actually received a few compliments in regards to my hair color. I will definitely continue to use this as long as I am blonde.
jaclyno2 from undisclosed
I bought this for my boyfriend because we recently bleached his hair and i wanted something to help avoid brassiness. Its reasonably priced and seems to help keep his hair looking great! I would most likely purchase again.
Not the worst
stephanieg172 from undisclosed
Not the best, not the worst. It is drying so make sure you have a good conditioner to follow with! The smell is a bit too floral for me. Long story short it does it's job and gets rid of brass. At this price point you won't find better.

Absolutely loved this shampoo! I use blonde shampoo every few washes and this has always been my go to. Would recommend!
hollieb1 from undisclosed
I have tried this purple shampoo as well as not your mother's purple shampoo and both are great for removing brashness out of blonde hair. My daughter has natural super blonde hair and when she swims in the summer her hair turns green from chlorine this stuff will get it right out. They both smell amazing. I recommend either one!
leahhmooree from undisclosed
doesnt smell the best but i guess thats not the idea. havent noticed much of a difference in my blonde since i started using. still have half of a bottle left. cleans your hair tho so i guess thats the point.
Smells like chemicals
melissajean1230 from undisclosed
I don't know what to say about this shampoo, I didn't like the scent of it. It's not drying, but my shower is now purple splotches! I've never used a shampoo like this, so I can't compare itt. !
will keep on buying !!
alejandrah17 from undisclosed
Have been using for almost two years now. Best products for colored hair.
Ever since I had my first balayage done over two years ago over time it was getting yellow until I started using shimmer lights shampoo and hair mask.
No more yellow and full hair!
Love my soft and fresh looking balayage!

Wash the yellow away
nicolez38aa from undisclosed
So glad to have been able to try out the line of Shimmer Lights products by Clairol. I love this shampoo. It works just like the higher priced purple shampoos on the market. As a bleach blonde toned with icy platinum this combination of products definitely helps maintain the brightness of my blonde /icy color. It also helps tone down any dullness and yellow brassiness in my hair. I do mix this in with my regular shampoo as it can tend to be a tad bit drying in my opinion (depending on how often you use it.) But overall it is a great product especially for the price and ease of accessibility to purchase. I will continue to be using this entire line for my hair care/treatment.I mean you cant go wrong with a line of products that not only tone down brassiness for us blondes but makes our hair soft, manageable, smooth and healthy. You can't ask for much more especially at such an affordable price.

Love this shampoo! I hate when my blonde hair turns to yellow blonde, and I want it to remain light & this stuff does the magic for me!
brianadee59c9a5b9 from undisclosed
i love thia purple shampoo.. combined with the toning mask and leave in conditioner it makes my hair smell amazing and feel so soft. i absolutely love the smell of this product. i am very satisfied and I would definitely recommend.
ciwinner from undisclosed
First thoughts of this shampoo: Wow, I love the purple color! and the scent is a bit chemical smelling kind of like Pert Plus has that chemical scent. Nothing wrong with the scent, though I must admit that I have gotten used to all the chemically scented shampoos! I have really long hair (down to my waist), so some shampoo Ive tried requires a lot to build up a good larger, but this shampoo does not take much! My hair felt nice and clean and more lightweight after using. I would definitely buy this and use again in the future.
