L’Oreal Professionnel Série Expert Silver Shampoo: Swatch and on hair

Hello my lovelies and Happy Saturday! How is your weekend going so far, do you have any special plans for tonight? :) I just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank you!’ to all of you who tweeted / e-mailed me for my birthday yesterday, you really made the day so much more special! Thank you so much, it really means a lot! <3 I had a fantastic day, spending some quality time with my loved ones and eating tons of yummy food haha! (:

For today, I wanted to share with you my little secret for lovely brassy-free hair aaaand it is this L’Oreal Professionnel Série Expert Silver Shampoo (£8.10 / $13,37 for 250 ml). A couple of months ago I decided that I wanted to go back to my lighter, highlighted blonde hair and I absolutely love how it looks on me! However, one problem that many fellow blondies have is that the beautiful color, which we leave the salon with often looses its prettiness shortly after and we’re left with a yellowish / brassy locks. Every time I highlight my hair I also tone it so that the nasty yellow tones stay at bay for longer. After two weeks though my hair always gets a bit brassy (which I absolutely hate) and then the only way to keep it nice and ashy is with this Silver shampoo from L’Oreal.

The Silver shampoo is designed to use as a toner at home, to remove the orange / yellow tones from our hair and to make it extra shiny and glossy. When you open the bottle don’t be shocked from the bright, intense purple color of the shampoo – it’s exactly what banishes the brassy tones. You may have noticed, looking at the color wheel, that the opposite color of yellow is purple. Therefore, the two colors neutralize each other and that’s why most purple-based shampoos work miracles in getting rid of unwanted yellow tones. The reason I prefer this one from L’Oreal though, is because it not only completely eliminates the brassiness (it is more concentrated than any other I’ve tried) but it also cleanses my hair really well and it’s pretty affordable. I've noticed that it makes my highlights look more defined, which is amazing! I like to use this shampoo once every two weeks and I love that its effect actually last for such a long time, unlike many others I’ve tried. The shampoo lathers really well and I like to let it sit on my hair for about 5 minutes.

What I don’t really like about this shampoo is that it’s a bit drying (especially if you leave it for longer) so after using it I like to soak my hair in my favorite Macadamia Deep Repair Mask so that it’s nicely conditioned and soft and I highly recommend you using some kind of conditioner as well! (: It’s safe to say that the Silver shampoo breaks its promise to make our hair glossy / shiny but as far as it is stays ashy I’m not complaining too much. Oh, forgot to mention that a little bit of this product goes a long way, so make sure you don’t use too much because it may dry out your hair further!! I am also not really fond of the smell of this product – it’s really odd but the good thing is that it doesn’t linger in your hair after you washed it. :) Just a little heads up while using this stuff – don’t leave it on for more than 5-6 minutes because your hair may get a bit purple-y. Also make sure that you wash your hands immediately after you’ve shampooed, otherwise your hands will get stained.

So blondies, if you’re the same as me and you’re tired of having brassy / yellow hair I highly encourage you to go and give this hair saver a try! I absolutely swear by it and it’s my hands down toning shampoo! <3 Being really concentrated, unlike many other purple shampoos on the market, it makes sure that you’ll have a beautiful ashy blonde hair and you won’t need to get it professionally toned. This little gem also cleanses really well and gives a nice fresh feeling to the scalp. It tends to be a bit drying though so I urge you to follow with your favorite conditioner or a mask and to leave it for a bit longer than usual so that your hair restores its natural moisture. As far as I’m aware you can get your hands on this shampoo only in specific hair salons or online. A great place to get this from is Feelunique.com because their prices are always reasonable and they also offer free shipping worldwide! :)

Have you ever tried this shampoo? What do you think of it? Which is your favorite purple shampoo?

Lots of love,

  2. Okay, I've heard so many bloggers rave about this shampoo and saying the colour is extreme but this is the first time I saw a picture of the contents and wow... this IS purple, I haven't seen anything so purple as yet ^^
    I'm glad I don't need toner shampoos as a brunette quite happy with her natural hair colour but it's really good there are prodcuts out there that can spare you from running to the salon too often.

  3. I'm not a massive user of purple shampoos, but I've seen Fleur (fleurdeforce) rave about this quite a few times lately, as well as a few others so I'll probably see what the fuss is about. :)

  4. This is such a brilliant idea, even for those of us who are brunette and have bleached our hair (for ombre purposes) , it removes the brassiness. Thanks for the great review. Hope you had a wonderful birthday!

  9. After hearing so much about this already and then reading this on a particularly brassy day this is definitely on the list. I've tried other things for blonde but nothing seems to be as intensive as this sounds! X

  15. I remember seeing Fleur and Becky talk about this in a video and it intrigued me! This was a really helpful in depth review. I'm naturally a dark blonde but I'm getting my hair rehighlighted in about a week so this is something I may pick up. Thanks for this review!

  17. Thank you for this great review! I have always used matrix as that's what we use in my salon. I may give this one a chance to see if its any better and it's cheaper than matrix!
