Purple shampoo brings a blonde back from her worst nightmare. You've probably been there -- you go into the salon for a new set of highlights (or, god forbid, attempt to do them yourself), only to end up with brassy, yellow, clownish hair. Your first instinct is to cry, but your second is to rush out to the beauty supply store to find a quick fix.

That instant miracle worker lies in a bottle of purple shampoo -- a bright violet elixir packed with a color-correcting formula and blonde-loving ingredients to help tone, nourish and protect hair from future damage.

But not all purple shampoos do the trick. Some don't kick in unless you wear them for an hour or more; some never work to brighten brassiness at all. Some purple shampoos dry out hair or stink to high heaven. But there are a select few top-rated picks that result in a bright, natural-looking blonde and soft, silky texture. Interested?

The purple shampoos on this list are the crè me de la crème, the products that both flaxen-haired consumers and editors trust to take care of their precious blonde locks. Brassy, dull, damaged hair, begone.
