I've had salon color treated hair for about 3 years now. My natural hair color is a dark brunette/almost black and I went blonde. A blonde balayage to be specific. My hair gets brassy very easily, so it's important that I use the right shampoo and conditioner to keep my hair the ashy blonde that I want! My sister also has a blonde balayage in and she recommended the Joico purple shampoo and conditioner to me, but unfortunately, it didn't work as well for me as it did for her. This shampoo dried out my hair immensely and I started flaking a little bit on my scalp because of it and I never ever had flaky scalp or dandruff before in my life until now. This shampoo and conditioner did work in the sense that my hair was no longer brassy, but it started to fade my hair to a more greenish ashy color which I didn't really like. I told my hairstylist and they said in my case, the shampoo and conditioner was working TOO well, so that's why my hair was getting to a greenish ashy color. Again, I'm assuming it's something with my hair that doesn't react well with this shampoo and conditioner because I know it works for other people it just wasn't a good match for me.
My hair type: thick, coarse, color-treated, damaged. Asian hair.
