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!!!

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

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 !!

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

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.

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.
Better than I expected!
jessicac518 from undisclosed
This was actually better than I expected. I used this along with mask and thermal spray and the combination was awesome! My hair is soft and shiny and more manageable. very happy with these products!
pcskigal from undisclosed
maybe it's me but I've tried three different purple shampoos and cannot see a difference in any of them. or maybe I just like having yellow hair and it doesn't look brassy to me. fortunately, this Clairol Shimmer purple is inexpensive, so even if you don't see a difference it's still a nice shampoo for the money. I've read from other reviews that if you leave it on for 10 minutes it gives you a purple cast to your hair . I might try that!

Brightens up my blonde and takes out all the yellow. I love how it makes my hair look! A must have for blondes!
baylee9311 from undisclosed
This shampoo is in a word, amazing. I love how it immediately pulls the brass tones out of my hair and left it clean and bright. The only thing that I would improve is the scent. It was very chemically and left an unpleasant smell on my hair. Other than that I will likely be buying this again!
Drugstore or Drugstore higher end

This is an interesting product, I like to try different purple shampoos to see which one is the best for my hair type. All purple shampoos leave my hair dry but paired with a great conditioner this product shouldnt be that harsh. I would only buy this if I had no other choice
emma from ohio
i left this on for FIVE minutes and my blonde hair is half brassier, half PURPLE. i googled and it said to shampoo my hair to get the purple out, which i did, and it's not coming out. this has never happened with any other purple shampoo i've used. plus my hair is so dry and dead after using this.
For the blondies
brittanyd05 from undisclosed
Nothing bad to say about this product! First off, the scent is something I would want to smell like! Not overwhelming or floral! The texture is thick enough not to run all over but thin enough to spread evenly! And last, it tones my blonde hair just the way it should! Would buy again!
good for fast fixes

I personally like shimmer lights I thought it worked well for my hair when it gets brassy, Ive heard its not really good for your hair though Im not sure why or what would be better so I stick to using this
not the results I hoped for
ashleyw313 from undisclosed
I was really hoping that this would brighten up my highlights and it did not live up to that hope. I wish that it had a bit more of a lightening effect to it
kirstencf37f from undisclosed
This shampoo goes on nicely and feels smooth in my hair. I like it compared to other purple shampoos I have tried. It does not stain even though it might look like it would at first glance. it took the yellow out of my blonde.
Surprisingly Non Drying!
serena_therese from undisclosed
My biggest problem with purple toning shampoos is that theyre sooooo drying - but this one was the exception! I love that my hair didnt feel like straw after rinsing it out. I tried testing this on its own to test its efficacy and I thought it worked about as well as any other purple shampoo Ive used. My hair is very processed so I dont use the shampoo anywhere but my scalp, and I def noticed that the highlights closer to my scalp were less brassy than those that were lower down for that reason. I will probably switch to this purple shampoo over the one Ive been using.
