Most Helpful Positive Review Great conditioner for dry curly colored hair
Great shampoo for bottle blondes.
The John Frieda Haircare Violet Crush for Blondes Purple Conditioner works well for my frizzy, curly hair.
I prefer the packaging this conditioner comes in as opposed to a pump or any bottle with the cap on top. The upside down tube is easy to squeeze out and it didn?t come open and spill all over my gym bag. The tube is easy to transport and not too heavy. A decent amount comes out in one squeeze. I use a lot of conditioner so this matters to me.
I packed the conditioner in my gym bag and used it instead of the basic stuff they supply which is free of sulfates but not catered specifically toward any hair type. Since I spend so much time and money on putting highlights in my hair to cover the gray and brighten my hair, I should go the extra step and bring this conditioner with me to use after every wash. I?m not sure if it?s necessary though. I think the shampoo is more important for protecting the color and any color safe conditioner is probably acceptable. If the conditioner is on sale for a good price, I would probably stock up.
The deep purple makes it clear that this is serious, professional conditioner to offset yellow tones in blonde hair. My hair doesn?t appear any more or any less brassy after using it. I really can?t see a difference after using it for only a week. I don?t wash my hair often because it is so dry and so curly but I condition it more often. I will use this conditioner on days I wash my hair and regular conditioner on other days.
Overall, this is a good, nice smelling conditioner that feels like salon quality. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for providing me with this conditioner to test and review!
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent Purple Conditioner
The John Freida purple conditioner was decent. I have tried purple conditioners in the past and I can't say that this stood above others, nor made my blond significantly less brassy for longer. I prefer to use purple shampoo and conditioners as a weekly clarifying product. The scent was ok, but kind of mild. I didn't feel that it kept that freshly washed smell very long after use. For the conditioner specifically, I wasn't impressed with the resulting softness of my hair. I needed to use leave in conditioner and a mask to get the silkiness back. In terms of reducing brassiness, when used in conjunction with the John Frieda purple shampoo, I noticed less yellowing as soon as my hair dried but even by the next day, it didn't seem to last. I realize that using purple hair products weekly could be the issue too, but other products have allowed me to achieve that result with that schedule.
In conclusion, I actually would reuse this product again if I planned to purple wash my hair multiple times during the week and the low cost would make that doable. But, if given the choice of a higher end purple conditioner that would keep my hair softer and less brassy longer, I would probably not choose this product first.

Ive been trying this shampoo and it does make my hair silver. I usually apply it on dry hair and leave it for 30 minutes! Does not leave it dry !
Good toning ability!
megank136 from undisclosed
I used this over quarantine intermittently with the company's Go Blonder shampoo and conditioner. So I would lighten it, then tone it with these in the next wash.
I still use this purple shampoo and conditioner to this day. I'm able to visit the salon (thank god) but it tones me in between visits.
good & affordable purple shampoo

Picked this up because it was one of the cheaper purple shampoos at the store. I have thick, black hair that is dyed blonde and needed something to get rid of the brassiness. This worked so well for the price! You get a lot of uses out of it and it lathers up well. After one use I noticed a difference in my hair color. The only con is that I would hold it so the cap faces upwards when opening it to prevent product from dripping out

At first I was hesitant about the product because I had began using it right after to got my hair lightened. After now using it for several weeks and giving it another try I could definitely tell the difference in made in the brassiness of my hair.

This product really color corrected my hair after I had it dyed. This is a great product it worked instantly. And i have no suggestions on improving this product. I have used this product and many others and I definitely recommend this one. I would buy this again in the future
Smells great and Works even Better!

Great product for the price! I recently went lighter with my hair and wanted to get done if the brassiness out after. I read up on my purple shampoos and since I wasnt sure about them didnt want to settle on something expensive. Every review I read about this one was spot on! Highly recommended!

Best Purple Shampoo
hannpoww from undisclosed
I have well water which can turn my blonde hair extremely brassy. This is the only purple shampoo that completely takes out the brassiness in my hair and makes it a cool toned blonde as quickly as after one wash. I would definitely recommend this product!

Love this shampoo and conditioner, it smells so good and it takes brassy tones out in 1 wash, i also love the conditioner because a little is all you need to get all the tangles out.
John Frieda Violet Crush Purple Shampoo
jenivie from undisclosed
Amazing. John Friedas products has not disappointed me! I was looking for a new purple shampoo and thought to try this one! Great choice! No regrets. Shampoos come with conditioner but this shampoo was like a 2 in 1. This worked amazing when I had blonde coarse hair! It made my hair softer and toned down the brass in my hair.

While searching for a purple shampoo/conditioner combo without spending the extra money to buy from my hair stylist, I came across this product. After use for about a month, I did not necessarily notice a difference in brightness from this product after using. However, the scent was pleasant and I used it until it was gone. I am unsure if the frequency of which I wash my hair would result in lack of results. I shampoo my hair 1x per week for reference.
Does the job but at the price of dry hair
maritzav from undisclosed
i love anything that tones blonde hair and heard so much good things about this. The thing is,when you have blonde hair it can be dry and damaged even after treatments you wouldnt want to make it worse. My hair has been so far so good and when i used this it worked,but left my hair extremely dry and brittle. i had to deep condition with a hair mask twice just to get it back to feeling somewhat normal. this product is extremely strong so i wont even suggest it for curly hair since curly hair sometimes associates with frizz as well. does the job but too much of a hassle and not moisturizing enough as well.
does the job

I had to wait to try this product since it was always out of stock when I sent to get it. Finally once I tried it I was impressed. Great product for the price.

Good for yellow tones
kimd90 from undisclosed
It's good for getting out brassiness. Very cleansing. I'm not able to use daily. I would recommend it to anyone who is blonde and has some yellow tones.
Where my blondes at?!

This is AMAZING!!!!! This shampoo truly gives you that in between salon visit toner that you need to keep your blonde on point!!! BUY IT! You wont be sorry!!
Brightening, not moisturizing
lizziev5 from undisclosed
I definitely think this shampoo removes brassiness, but I feel like I have to use so much in order to cover my whole head and get suds all over. I found it helpful to combine this with my regular shampoo in order to cover my whole head.
A good budget option
catherineh54 from undisclosed
This purple shampoo doesnt have much fragrance at all but provides a lot of lather. My main complaint is that it left my hair feeling very dry.
John Frieda Violet Crush Purple Shampoo - 8.3 fl oz
What's this even for?
EmDog from Jacksonville NC
I used this to help with the yellow of my blonde, and it is SO sheer that nothing changed. My hair wasn't even soft after using this. What's the point of advertising something it doesn't do!
Brassiness is gone!
CindiO from PA
I received John Frieda Haircare Violet Crush for Blondes Purple Conditioner as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I used it along with the John Frieda Haircare Violet Crush for Blondes Purple Shampoo and the combination of the two really took the brassiness out of my hair. I was a little worried about it because I never used purple shampoo/condition before but it was so easy to use and nothing got stained. My hair is a nice bright blonde now. I use this now when I see the brassiness starting to come back so maybe once a week. I am not high maintenance at all, but using this shampoo and conditioner easily fits into my shower routine! I will be using John Frieda Purple from now on.

Ive tried countless amounts of purple shampoo (all VERY expensive) but to my relief I ended up loving the John Frieda purple shampoo. Smells great, affordable, and really brightens up your hair! I swear by this product and is my go to shampoo to keep my hair fresh and bright
saimap1 from undisclosed
This is a great shampoo for blond and grey hair. It takes care of any brassiness in just a couple of washes. I follow up with the violet conditioner and my hair feels soft and not dry.
