Bleach London Silver Shampoo For Bleached Hair

I was late to the ombre hair party and only jumped on the bandwagon last year. I have naturally dark brown hair, which has been dyed to within an inch of its life many times over the years in many different colours. After a few months of leaving it alone, I decided to do some more damage and went and had some balayage put in. Hair like mine pulls some serious orange tones when you add any lightening products, so although I love the look of the balayage, I was fighting against brassiness on a weekly basis.

Enter Bleach London’s Silver Shampoo. I picked this up in Boots, where it currently costs £6.50 for 250ml. All of Bleach London’s products are vegan!

The idea behind a purple shampoo is that it deposits purple pigment into the hair. Before this frightens you off, purple is opposite to yellow on the colour wheel, and the pigment helps to cancel out red and yellow undertones, and make blue undertones brighter. The result is a cooler hair colour hue. I picked this shampoo up because it looks like an incredibly dark, scary purple, and I had read that the darker the better in the case of purple shampoos. This one is really very dark and thick-looking. It smells lovely though, so clean and fresh. I used it around once a week, taking care not to leave it on my hair for more than 2-3 minutes.

The results can be seen above.

The left hand photo is a ‘before’ shot; you can clearly see the brassiness in my hair. On the right above is the ‘after’; the shampoo eliminated most of the brassiness and brought back the cooler tones to the highlights.

Bleach London’s Purple Shampoo really is a great choice for a drugstore purple shampoo so I recommend giving it a try if you suffer from those annoying brassy tones. It didn’t dry out my already damaged hair, and left it soft and volumised too.

Have you tried this, or any of the other Bleach London products?
