You've been hearing everyone talk about silver shampoo for years. Silver shampoo is especially for blond, gray or white hair. In this blog we take you into the world of silver products, because there are more products with violet pigments than just silver shampoo. We answer all the questions we often hear in the hair salon about silver shampoo.

What does a Silver Shampoo and Silver Conditioner do?
A silver shampoo or conditioner ensures that yellow tones and copper glow disappear from the hair, and makes blonde, silver, white or lavender tones shine. The silver products have strong violet pigments that neutralize the yellowish glow and other warm tones. With the shampoo you give your gray or bleached hair the perfect care. The purple shampoo preserves your hair color beautifully and accentuates the cool tones. The conditioner also helps make your hair healthy and strong.


How does the silver shampoo work? The color purple is opposite the color yellow on the color wheel. Colors opposite each other on the wheel neutralize each other. This will change your yellow locks into a beautiful ash-colored shade.

You can alternate between a silver shampoo and a nourishing shampoo, depending on your needs. If you notice that your hair needs hydration, you can supplement it with Vital Nutrition Shampoo , your hair is damaged with the Blonde Savior Shampoo , or you want more volume in the hair with Absolute Volume Shampoo .

You use the purple shampoo as follows:

  • Wet your hair.

Can you apply silver shampoo to dry hair?

Yes this is possible. Contrary to what you may think, it is certainly possible to apply silver shampoo to dry hair. In fact, purple shampoo can be effectively applied to both dry and damp hair. The primary purpose of this shampoo is to introduce color pigments into your hair, which also works great on dry hair. Using silver shampoo on dry hair neutralizes the color even more intensively. So if you like a gray blonde color then this is definitely recommended for you. It is essential to rinse the shampoo thoroughly after use.
