      Comments about Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo:

      This product definitely takes brass out of lightened brown hair. I'm a natural dark brunette with bayalage and I needed to be toned pretty much 2 weeks after getting my hair done due to brassiness. After one shampoo I noticed a difference. See before and after pic- these pics were taken after my first ever wash with this product. The downside is that I didn't love the way my hair felt/was styling after and the lather isn't great. It totally improved the color but my hair was sort of flat and meh after - I'll probably use it once a week or so and stick to my pureology the rest of the week.

          I have highlighted hair and I spend a lot of time outdoors and my hair seems to brass out!!!! My hair stylist recommended this shampoo to use weekly. So far I have noticed less yellow and more highlights!
          I purchased the matching conditioner as well and use with this shampoo. My hair is soft, subtle and looks healthy.

            Searched and searched for a purple shampo I liked and HERE IT WAS! I'm naturally a dark brunette and got blonde balayage in my hair that immediately started going copper but I've been using this product every other day and it's amazing! My hair stays really soft and smells good all day and the brass is going away more and more with each use! Totally recommend

                          READ THE DESCRIPTION FOLKS

                          By bundysmom

                          from Henderson, NV

                          Comments about Matrix Total Results Brass Off Shampoo:

                          As always, many don't read the description & then complain when it doesn't work. It's pretty clear: this is a BLUE shampoo specifically for BRUNETTES who go BLONDE. The brass we face is NOT the same as NON brunettes. For us, brass is orange/copper, NOT yellow. This works on the new lifted sections of hair that turn orange or copper. Only brunettes experience this.

                          This WILL NOT work on yellow-blonde hair. Blue doesn't neutralize yellow-it neutralizes orange. Not ALL purple/blue shampoos deposit color either. This one does. Unless it specifically says it deposits color, assume nothing. There are few products on the market that deposit color, or tone.

                          Best tip: Apply this to your DRY hair on the brassy bits and let it sit for an hour. Use a brush and section to do so. Then rinse & condition.

                          This is the ONLY BLUE shampoo sold at Ulta that addresses brassy brunette blondes. It's moisturizing & hydrating. It smells fab & works.

                          You WILL NOT see results in 1 wash. Results are cumulative. Alternate with your other shampoos. I suggest chelating your hair too before using this, as that will help get the gunk off that contributes to that nasty copper color.

                            I am a natural blonde, that get blonde foils for lightening. My hair changes quickly. I recently washed my hair for a week in well water which turned my hair brownish orange from the iron. I now have a water softener but need to find a way to change my hair back to blonde. Hairdresser is suggesting this shampoo and conditioner. Do you think this will help where I am a natural dirty blonde not brunette? And reduce the iron making my hair dark?

                              Total Results Brass Off Shampoo is designed to control warmth in the hair due to highlighting and natural pigment. We recommend using Total Results Pro Solutionist Alternate Action once a week to prevent the amount of build up caused by the well water.

                          • 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.

                          • Q:

                            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.
