Better than Joico

By Cheyla H.

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo:

For anyone who is trying to decide between this or Joico Purple Shampoo, choose this one. I had been using the Joico one for about a year with little to no results. But this one actually works (and quickly!) plus it smells way better than Joico.

      I got my hair colored and instead of it being a lighter brown came out a little too orange for my taste. So I went to ulta and asked what could help tone it down. They recommended Brass Off. Took it home and started using it every other day. With the first use I saw great improvements

        I am a medium brunette with soft blonde/caramel highlights and was looking for a product to eliminate some of the brass as it has been one month since my highlights. I have now used this twice in one week and my hair looks as though I just had it done due to the pop of color this product gave me! Not only did it revive my color, but it also made my hair extremely soft and feeling so healthy. I highly recommend.❤️

                My hairdresser got my hair a little lighter than I wanted, but not enough to go back and have it redone. So, I was looking at getting some purple shampoo to tone the brassiness down a little bit. The beauty consultant at Ulta was so helpful and he didn't steer me wrong. This did exactly what I wanted it to do. The shampoo is rated 4 stars because it was $15 for a small bottle.

                  I have bayalage hair- dark roots that is more blonde on the ends. Recently my hair dresser brought the blonde higher up which obviously resulted in some brassinsss. I use this shampoo every other day to try to combat the grassiness. Paired with the conditioner i have actually noticed my hair is softer and i am seeing Improvements with the brassiness although they are not drastic as i have only used the shampoo 3 times so far. Would definitely recommend.

                    Comments about Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo:

                    I'm a natural, dark brunette (think Kate Middleton) who recently decided to take a plunge and add lots of blonde hightlights. I've only colored my hair a handful of times and never as blonde as I am now. I'm used to using national brands but ones that have been recommended by my stylist to fit my hair needs. I was pleased to find my favorite shampoo was safe for colored hair so I continued to use it for about a week after my recent dye job. After just a few days, my hair became extremely brassy - nearly an amber color and made it clear my regular "color safe" shampoo was not working. I went to ulta with a recommendation for purple shampoo from my stylist, but the stylist at the Ulta salon said a blue shampoo might be a better option for me since my hair was so dark before. I picked this one up because it was the only option my store had that had a shampoo and conditioner available from the same brand and I was so pleasantly surprised when after just one wash, I could see a considerable amount of the brass had came out and after three washes (in four days) I got my color toned to a great shade for me and I'm super happy about it! I've gotten many compliments on the tone of my hair and have made this a staple in my hair care routine. Though I only use this about two - three times a week, I continue to see improvement every time I use it. This shampoo can be harsh so I would really recommend using it only when you absolutely need it and keeping it away from children at all costs. I have really sensitive skin around my eyelids and got a little burning in that area after using it for the first time. I did test it first and it works fine, I'm just extremely careful and avoid touching my face when I have used it or have it in my hair. I always use the conditioner with it and use both products as recommended.

                        • Q:

                          I went for a root touch up a week ago but my hairdresser left town and took all of her formulas . A new stylist did a version she though would work which left it dark brown up top. My hair has highlights on ends (an ombre/balayage of sorts) in auburns/golds with some light brown which sounds crazy but is actually super pretty when done correctly. I went back 2 days later and she did a balayage which I did not ask for and the all over color turned out really brassy, red gold. It is nothing like my hair from before (my old hairstylist had it down perfect but she disappeared). Which toning shampoo color would you recommend to tone this brassy look down? I'm desperate and will not go back a 3rd time for this stylist to fix. Thank you so much! ~Carole

                            We are sorry to hear about your recent haircolor experience! The good news is that Matrix has products to help you tone your hair into the perfect shade!
                            You describe the unwanted tones in your hair as red and gold, which makes us think that you would benefit most from using the Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo and Brass Off Conditioner. Brass Off products target deeper, more brassy, Copper tones and neutralize them into cooler, softer, more natural tones.
                            Matrix Total Results So Silver products are recommended for medium and lighter blondes that wish to diminish yellow, brassy tones from their hair.

                          My natural color is a level 5 medium brown. I recently got a balayage done where my hair was bleached. Now, it is mostly a level 7-8 ish blonde all over. My problem is I currently use a purple shampoo and conditioner, but there are some areas where orange tones come out and it looks so bad. Can I use this blue shampoo specifically in those areas, and purple shampoo throughout the rest? Or should I just use blue shampoo throughout? My stylist told me to use purple but I really need to do something about these brassy tones that peak through.

                            Brass Off Shampoo has blue violet tones that are meant for brunettes that have lightened their hair. It is not suggested for lighter levels of blonde as the blue violet tone may be left in the hair. You may wish to discuss a color correction with your stylist to even out your tones. Until then, using the Total Results Color Obsessed So Silver violet based shampoo would be the best selection, as to not create a discoloration in your hair.

                          I'm a natural brunette - about a level 4. I have balayaged hair to be a rooty, cool/ashy dark blonde, about a level 6 or 7. I've used a few different purple shampoos and this blue shampoo by Matrix is the exact same shade of dark purple as the other purple shampoos I've used. I'm trying to understand what makes this exact "blue" shampoo better for natural brunettes, when it's actually the same as every other purple shampoo out there. How is this better than Joico's blue shampoo which is a little shade of actual blue? Just trying to find what is most suitable for my needs to eliminate the orange/brassiness that can come through my color, especially closer to the roots. Thanks!

                            Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo is safe for color treated hair. This product will help to control and eliminate any unwanted warmth in the hair. We recommend using this product once or twice a week. If you are looking for a daily shampoo to use for your color treated hair we recommend Total Results Color Obsessed shampoo and conditioner.

                        • Q:

                          I have dark brown almost black hair that I home dye every 6-8 weeks, with same color (medium -dark brown) to cover gray. I have lately been having problems with brassy streaks. Possibly from our water, however, not sure why I have all of a sudden been experiencing this problem. Will this help me get out the brassy streaks or is this only for blondes?

                            Total Results Brass Off Shampoo is best for brunettes that have lightened their hair. It is suitable for natural or color treated hair. It is not recommended for lighter levels of blonde hair, as it deposits blue -violet tones to help reduce unwanted brassy warm tones in brunettes.
