The last thing you want when you’re in love with your blonde or silvery grey hair colour is for it to turn brassy. You’ll know it’s happening when warm undertones start to appear - for blonde hair that means it might start to look yellow while caramel tones have a tendency to turn orangey or take on a reddish tint. Not the look you’re going for when you want a crisp, clean colour. But before you start panicking, you’ll be pleased to know you can easily sort it out and get your colour back on track!
SILVER SHAMPOO TO THE RESCUE
Besides re-dying your hair, there are things you can do to keep the clarity and using Schwarzkopf’s LIVE Silver Shampoo is one of them. Neutralising yellow undertones, eliminating brassiness as well as strengthening the hair, it’s suitable for natural or coloured blonde, grey or white hair and works wonders on highlights and balayage too. Silver shampoo will keep your locks looking the exact colour you intended them to.
HOW SILVER SHAMPOO WORKS
LIVE Silver shampoo is silicone-free and has a double effect. On the one hand, it strengthens the hair, making it less vulnerable to aggressors that will cause your blonde to turn yellow, such as pollution and hard water. On the other hand, it works as a colour corrector, as purple sits opposite yellow on the colour wheel. That is, our shampoo has the ability to cancel out yellow tones and remove the underlying brassiness by depositing violet pigments into the hair.
HOW OFTEN TO USE SILVER SHAMPOO
First things first, we recommend not to use silver shampoo right after colouring your hair. Just wait around two weeks, as dyeing your hair makes it more porous and using a silver shampoo too early on could cause patchiness. After that, swap your regular shampoo for LIVE Silver Shampoo once a week or whenever you start to see any brassiness creeping in. If you happen to have dry hair, don’t overdo it as it will soak up the colour pigments quicker and could scupper your blonde look. Using silver shampoo on blonde hair regularlywill also give bright blondes a more ashy tone so bear that in mind too.
The benefits of silver shampoo on natural grey hair are also numerous. If you're embracing your natural grey hair, you may notice that it can develop a yellow tinge from exposure to elements such as wind, rain and pollution. So maintaining your hair's original colour also requires a routine to keep it looking its best. In this case, silver shampoo helps to correct this yellowing while strengthening hair fibres for a healthier look and feel.
HOW TO USE SILVER SHAMPOO
In the same way you’d use a normal shampoo!
Apply your silver shampoo on wet hair and rub it in to form a lather.
Leave for 3-5 minutes depending on how much colour correcting needs to be done and then rinse thoroughly.
Adding the silver shampoo to your hair-care routine, you’ll not only see your blonde, white, or grey hair return to its former glory, you’ll also notice your hair feels smoother, stronger and soft to the touch thanks to the silicone-free formula that allows moisture to penetrate the hair shaft.
