Generic Value Products: Purple Shampoo

It’s funny when you change your hair color from one high maintenance color to another high maintenance color you forget what a pain it can be. I still haven’t figured out which color is harder to maintain red or blonde. 

So a few months back I was strolling through my local Sally’s when there were having a sale on their Generic Value Products. I’ve tried a bunch from those lines and really liked them. I figured what the hell I’ll give the knockoff shummer lights Conditioning Shampoo (Purple Shampoo) a whirl. I’ve been using it once a week for months now. 

This shampoo is a little more liquidly than most. It comes out purple, which is because purple balances out the brassiness of blonde. I use this about once a week, usually on sunday because of the old lady rose scent it seems to have, it lasts even after you wash it out of your hair. Also it’s not very conditioning at all. It feels a bit drying actually. So I always use a deep conditioner after I use it. WARNING do not use it more than once a week or you risk getting a grey/purple tint to your hair. 


  • Gets rid of the brassiness in blonde hair.
  • Cheaper than Clairol’s Shimmer Lights


  • Drying – use a deep conditioner right afterwards. 
  • Has an old lady rose scent to it, that lingers even after the shower. 

VERDICT: Even if this is a bit drying and smells kinda bad – it does it’s job and does it well. I have repurchased this, and will continue to repurchases it as long as I’m blonde. I may not like the smell but it does it’s job. For $6 for a purple shampoo that last over 6 months. How can you go wrong? If it’s not broken don’t fix it right? 

WARNING – This shampoo is for those with blonde hair only.
