Many people cannot tell one from another. However, believe me when I tell you, as a professional stylist, that it’s super important that you know about it, especially about the developing times of each product.

How long to leave purple shampoo to tone unwanted colors in blonde hair
If you have bleached your hair or applied a dye, and you have a brassy yellow color, purple shampoo will help you solve this problem in a short time.
Also, you can use it on your dry hair to erase those colors.
How long should you leave purple shampoo on your hair to tone those brassy colors?
From 5 to 10 minutes.
In addition, do you know why you don’t need to leave it on longer?
Because, when you apply the purple shampoo on dry hair, the porous texture of your hair fiber will quickly absorb a large amount of product.
Therefore, you don’t need to leave it on your dry hair much longer.
Even if you leave it in for half an hour, shampoos have very little pigment and are very mild. So, you’ll get the same results if you leave it in for 5-10 minutes as if you leave it in for 30 minutes.
Therefore, you should always leave purple shampoo in for five to ten minutes on your dry hair.
If you leave it longer, you run the risk of ending up with a slightly purple tone that will disappear after a few washes.
What are the best purple shampoos?
My favorites include three, which are the same ones I recommend to my clients in the salon:
- FANOLA NO YELLOW
- L’OREAL EVER PURE BRASS TONING
- CLAIROL SHIMMER LIGHTS
Just five to ten minutes on your dry hair and any of these three purple shampoos will give your blonde hair back the shade you want.

Why is there a time difference?
Because the time you have to leave it in your hair depends on your goals.
Color-depositing shampoos are used to add pigmentation to colored hair, in this case, purple.
As they have a higher concentration of pigments, you can use them to touch up your color instead of coloring it. That’s why:
