If you are anything like me, then you may find yourself going back to blonde frequently, this is personally the longest I’ve ever been blonde. We are coming up to around three years I have managed to refrain from dying my hair another colour because as many of you know, we will miss being blonde when we leave it.
Because of this though, especially through the lockdown of 2020, you may have found yourself in need of a silver shampoo for brassy hair, I know I did. The first time I was able to get my roots bleached up to blonde again, there was no way it was going to match the ends of my hair for some time, even with toning.
Luckily, working at a Wolverhampton Hair Salon has its perks! I knew exactly what silver shampoo that I was going to be using and I knew that everything was going to be ok!
So today, we are going to write about some silver shampoos for brassy hair that have worked wonders over the years for me and for clients.
We will start with one of my personal favourites!
Osmo Super Silver No Yellow Shampoo, I have written an entire page on the Super Silver No Yellow range previously which you can find here so I will be very brief.
The Super Silver Shampoo is a sulphate free, vegan-friendly shampoo that will work wonders on brassy/yellow hair. It is suitable for anybody with blonde/silver/grey hair that would like to neutralise yellow/brassy tones. So far, we have found this one to be one of the strongest out there and it is one that we will always recommend.
It also has the range of products that compliment it perfectly such as the Osmo Super Silver No Yellow Mask & The Osmo Super Silver No Yellow Conditioner. After you are happy with your tone, we would advise using this less frequently as it is incredibly pigmented and if used to frequently, you may find that the blue/violet tones can start to grab on your hair. If you find this has happened to you, it is not an issue at all. Simply wash your hair a few times in ordinary shampoo and it will fade back out again.
The second one on our list is the Amika Bust Your Brass Collection
This one is again, a huge favourite of mine, it’s an incredible product from an incredible brand with an incredible fragrance that will last on your hair!
I have been using the Amika Bust Your Brass Shampoo now since 2019, It is the shampoo that I use to maintain the perfect blonde, so I do not get bits of blue / violet grabbing in my hair.
Amika stands for a lot! They have never tested on animals and never will! They also have a unique way of doing business! Their products, for example, they all smell incredible, they all contain an incredible blend of ingredients to keep your hair at its healthiest and have you seen how everything is packaged? I have never seen a shampoo bottle look so pretty before!
If you are serious about looking for a silver shampoo that’s going to sort out your brassy hair, then you should really take a look at the products that help this silver shampoo’s along the way. As we’ve mentioned above, We did a blog post on the whole range of Osmo Super Silver products, This includes the super silver no yellow mask.
Did you know though that Amika also has an incredible range of hair products for brassy hair? Yes, They don’t just have the Bust Your Brass Shampoo but they also have the Amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Conditioner and the Amika Bust Your Brass Violet Lead-in Treatment Foam! Both also absolutely incredible products to help tone brassy blonde hair, Not to mention they smell absolutely amazing.

If I had to write down what I thought one of the most common questions a hairdresser gets asked it would be the following “How can I get my hair to feel better?”
Now there isn’t a single response to this question as it depends on what you feel is wrong with the feeling of your hair. Is it too dry? Is it fried? Too many split ends? Whichever one of these it is will reflect in the answer that we would give so we’re going to go through a few of our most common pieces of advice that we give to clients when they ask us this question.
- How can I fix split ends?
The simple answer is “You don’t” If you have split ends, we’re afraid the only way that you’re going to get rid of them is by having them cut off! Now don’t freak out! We’re not going to make you have 12 inches cut off your hair and cut your fringe above your eyebrows…. Unless you ask for that and that’s the look you’re going for.
Something we would say in this case is why do you have split ends? Are
