Purple Shampoo: 3 Ways To Utilize This Versatile Product


1. Clients Requesting Platinum? Don’t Skip This Pre-Tone Step

Pre-toning is KEY for clients requesting a platinum result, especially if they have any lingering yellow after lightening. That’s why Ireland-based stylist Oana Ciofu (@hair_by_oana) pre-tones with the Moroccanoil® Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo before applying a gloss. This way, she can remove any brassy tones and moisturize the hair with just one shampoo.

2. Create Pearlescent Hues With This After Color Trick

To give her blonde clients a reflective pearl hue, Portugal-based colorist Cátia Inês Mourão Monteiro (@catiamonteiro _colorexpert) applies the Moroccanoil® Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo after applying color to enhance the violet pigments in her formulas. “Highlighting the existing violet in the color formula creates a really pretty pearl reflection in blondes,” she explains.

3. Keep Gray Clients Healthy & Vibrant Between Appointments 

To avoid unwanted yellow and orange tones, Netherlands stylist Gleiton Pedro (@gleitonpedrostudio) sends his gray clients home with the Moroccanoil® Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo. “The Moroccanoil® Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo cleanses, hydrates and neutralizes brass after a single use, helping clients maintain their ideal haircolor between salon visits,” he explains. 


Pro Tip: To create a style with a natural finish, Gleiton uses a combination of Moroccanoil® Texture Clay and Treatment Light for hold and shine.

6. Curly Clients: How To Keep Curls Healthy After Lifting 

Avoid frizzy, undefined curls after a color service by styling with a product that replenishes moisture and definition back into the hair. Gleiton suggests the Moroccanoil® Curl Defining Cream. 


Apply two to four pumps on towel-dried hair and evenly distribute throughout the head. For defined curls, dry with a diffuser. For wavy clients, allow hair to air dry.
