Silver shampoo, it's a maze. In recent years, the silver shampoo has grown enormously. Wherever you look, there are so many species that you can no longer see the forest for the trees. We thought it was time to provide some clarity in the world of silver shampoos.
A silver shampoo is a shampoo with purple or blue pigments that is used to give blonde, gray or white hair a cool tone or to neutralize unwanted yellow and orange tones in your hair.
Silver shampoo is used for blonde, gray and white hair. These are light shades of hair, silver shampoo is ideal if you want to give these colors a cool shade. It also ensures that the yellow and orange tones disappear from your hair, also known as warm tones. You may be wondering how the violet hues neutralize the yellow / orange hue. Opposite colors neutralize each other. The color yellow is opposite blue / purple in the color wheel.
This depends on the Violet Shampoo you choose. There are silver shampoos that mainly consist of violet hues and few caring ingredients. There are also shampoos that contain more nourishing ingredients, so there will be less room for the violet-colored shades.
If you want to use silver shampoo every day, we recommend one with more nourishing ingredients such as the Maria Nila Sheer Silver. If you really want an intense silver shampoo purely to neutralize your yellow / orange glow, then the Fanola No Yellow suitable that contain almost to no nurturing ingredients.
Do you actually want both, so a silver shampoo with an enormous amount of violet pigment, but also with an enormous amount of nourishing ingredients so that you can use it every day? Then you are in the right place with the MORE Extreme Silver .
For anyone who has blonde, gray or white hair and would like to keep the cool shade. Do you have dark hair? Then a silver shampoo has been specially developed for brunettes, you can read more about this under the heading "Is silver shampoo suitable for dark hair".
That is certainly possible, hair extensions are already a bit more sensitive than your own hair, so some extra care cannot hurt in any case. We therefore recommend using a silver shampoo that contains more care ingredients. You can also use a mask after using a silver shampoo for extra care, then close with a conditioner to close the hair cuticles (filled with nourishing ingredients from the mask).
If you've been a little too fanatic, your hair can get a purplish glow. No stress .. purple is an easy color to remove. Wash once or twice with a regular shampoo and you're there. However, to avoid this, it is important that if you have white hair, choose a silver shampoo that is not too strong. You then need less of the Violet Pigments. Then go for the Maria Nila Sheer Silver Shampoo, for example . This silver shampoo contains less violet pigments, but more nourishing ingredients.
Depending on the silver shampoo, your daily ritual and your hair. If you have a fanatic silver shampoo that contains almost no care ingredients, we recommend an average of 3 times a week. However, if you have very white hair, you don't need this. Then you can go for a silver shampoo that contains less violet pigments. If you want to wash your locks with silver shampoo every day, we recommend a shampoo that also contains sufficient nourishing ingredients. However, if you really have yellowish hair, it is again important that you use a strong Violet Shampoo that still contains enough nourishing ingredients such as the MORE Extreme Silver We recommend this silver shampoo because it and many nourishing ingredients that condition of your locks, but also a lot of violet pigment. Launched since 2020, this silver shampoo has a huge amount of violet pigment as well as nourishing pigments.
A good addition to not only keep the yellowish glow out of your hair, but also to take care of your locks is the Fanola No Yellow Mask . Cool shades and wonderfully soft locks! The Fanola No Yellow Mask is actually a silver conditioner.
That differs per silver shampoo and your hair. A stronger silver shampoo such as the Fudge Violet Shampoo will leave you on for 30 to 60 seconds. If you really have a good yellow glow, you can leave the silver shampoo on for up to 5 minutes. If you have very light hair, you have to be careful that your hair does not turn purple. However, if you have light, colored hair, it is better to use a silver shampoo that contains more nourishing ingredients and less violet pigments such as the Maria Nila Sheer Silver Shampoo or the Schwarzkopf Professional Goodbye Yellow .
If you really quickly have a yellowish glow in your hair, then it is advisable to use products that also contain violet pigments in addition to the shampoo and conditioner. Fudge is the absolute forerunner in this field and has launched two beautiful products. The Fudge Tri-blo Violet Spray came first. This spray, which not only protects your hair from heat from your hair dryer, among other things, also ensures that the yellowish glow in your hair disappears like snow in the sun! In addition, Fudge launched the Feelde Violet Xpander Foam in August 2018. This brilliant mousse gives your locks volume, shine and of course a beautiful cool shade. In other words, bye bye yellowish glow.
For example, if you want a silver conditioner leave-in spray or another care or styling product that contains violet pigment, we recommend that you take a look at one of the following pages. For further information, we would also like to refer you to the relevant pages.
There are also a number of hair masks that also contain violet pigments, and also neutralize the yellow tones in your hair. Just like a good silver shampoo. The following hair masks contain purple pigments, so they blend seamlessly with your silver shampoo:
Silver shampoo is not immediately bad for your scalp. However, it may be that you can get a dry scalp if you are sensitive to it. This only concerns the silver shampoos that consist almost exclusively of violet pigments such as the Fanola No Yellow. Our team then recommend using a milder silver shampoo such as the Maria Nila Sheer Silver Shampoo.
No, not necessarily. However, if you have dry hair or a dry scalp, it is better to choose a silver shampoo that contains extra nourishing ingredients. You can also consider taking a silver shampoo without sulfates. Sulphates remove sebum from your hair and scalp. If you have problems with a dry scalp and you still want to use a silver shampoo at all costs, we recommend that you use a mask after the wash. Then you finish with a conditioner. By washing your hair with a shampoo, silver shampoo in this case, you open the scales. If you put on a mask afterwards, it gets stuck in your hair. The conditioner then ensures that the scales close again with the nourishing ingredients of the mask. This way the mask will stay in your hair longer. This way, your hair will always be well nourished, and you will have a beautiful cool shade.
Yes, you can use silver shampoos, silver conditioners and silver masks on natural hair.
This is no problem at all. Silver shampoo was initially made for natural gray hair. Later, of course, the hit to dye your hair in a cool shade followed. The popularity of silver shampoo started in the early 1990s when dyeing hair in a cool blonde shade was not the 'fashion'.
You can certainly use silver shampoo on dyed hair. Silver shampoo is currently mainly used by people who have dyed their hair beautifully cool and want to keep it.
Nowadays we of course pay attention to whether there are anything harmful in products, this is also the case with hair stuff. Silver shampoo generally contains sulfates and parabens, but it is increasingly common that these are also omitted. The Maria Nila Sheer Silver Shampoo is not only 100% vegan, the silver shampoo is also free from sulfates and parabens. If a silver shampoo is free of sulfates and parabens, this is always stated in the product description.
The regular silver shampoo does not do much for dark hair because of the following: If you have dark hair, it is often the case that you have more red and copper tones in your hair. Silver shampoo has really been developed to counteract the yellow tint, hence the violet pigments. However, there is a silver shampoo on the market especially for people with dark hair, namely the following two:
These shampoos ensure that the red and copper tones from your dark locks are neutralized. The Fanola No Orange and the Fudge Cool Brunette therefore contain blue pigments instead of purple pigments, this has to do with the color wheel.
As you can see, purple is opposite yellow and blue is opposite orange. Colors in the color wheel that are opposite each other neutralize each other.
If you have dark hair then you are not so familiar with a yellowish glow, but a red and copper glow. The silver shampoos with violet pigments will not work as they should, violet neutralizes yellow and not orange / red / copper. The Fanola No Orange contains blue pigments, this contrasts with orange tones in the color wheel. That is why the Fanola No Orange is the best choice when it comes to silver shampoo. Fudge also has a silver shampoo for dark hair and that is the Fudge Cool Brunette .
It has no added to put silver shampoo on dry hair. Silver shampoo is made to be put on wet hair. It is of course also a shampoo that also cleans your hair. You would then have to work with a silver dry shampoo. This does not exist yet. Our team therefore recommends not applying silver hair to dry hair, but to wet hair. This for the best result.
There is no such thing as a best silver shampoo. This depends on your wishes and every hair type is different. If you want a silver shampoo that really gives your locks the cool shade and therefore contains the most violet pigments, then you were always good with the Fanola No Yellow , but a new silver shampoo was launched in 2020 and that is actually a cross between the Fanola and Fudge. At least as much pigment as the Fanola, okay actually more and even more nutrition than the Fudge! Yes really! We are all huge fans of this brand ♡ It is the MORE Extreme Silver However, if you also want your silver shampoo to contain nourishing ingredients because you want to use the silver shampoo daily, we recommend the Fudge Violet Shampoo or the Maria Nila Sheer Silver Shampoo On. We have made a top 5 below with the most sold silver shampoos.
