“I’m not a regular blonde, I’m a cool blonde”

I can’t resist a good Mean Girls quote and, I’m not going to lie, I made myself laugh when I came up with this blog post title… it’s the little things, right?! Anyways, today I’m excited to share a fun beauty product with all the blondies! If you’re a blonde (natural or not) you know there are certain struggles with being a blonde. Blonde hair can turn really brassy and often times there’s not too much that can be done about it without a visit to the salon.

Although I’m a natural blonde my hair gets a bit darker in the fall/winter and can sometimes seem a bit brassy. Since I don’t color my hair I had to do some research so that I could get rid of that warm color in my hair during the cooler months. My trick? Purple shampoo!

Purple shampoo (I’ve been using this shampoo and conditioner by dpHUE) is the easiest way to get rid of warm tones in blonde hair. Recently I’ve been using this 2x a week and I’ve noticed a big difference in the tone of my hair. I usually leave the shampoo in for about five minutes to let it work it’s magic.

P.S. if you’re not a blonde, don’t worry, they have products for all hair types!

Since the shampoo doesn’t leave my hair super smooth, I use this ACV Hair Rinse when I use the shampoo/conditioner. All you do is divide your hair into parts when it’s wet, and spray this on the roots of your hair. Leave it in for up to three minutes (depending on your hair) and then rinse! I usually use it while I’m washing my face! Super easy and it leaves my hair feeling SO soft and smelling incredible. This is my third bottle of this! If you’re in a hurry, it also comes in a leave-in conditioner version! Just spray on your damp hair & do your normal routine!

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Anyone have any big plans? Nick and I are just doing dinner-we aren’t big on this holiday. Plus I’ve got to pack for a trip I’m heading on tomorrow!

    So I am a blonde and just started using purple shampoo a few months ago. Shame, I know! I can’t believe I was missing out! Going to try this stuff out!


      I’ve been blonde for almost 27 years and I just started using it sporadically last year, so not a shame at all haha! I really like it so far! I will say, I can’t use it more than 2-3x a week because it does make my hair a little brittle feeling (not as soft as with a normal shampoo.. if that makes sense!)

    This line of products sounds excellent! I would definitely use it if I had blonde hair. Too bad they don’t have anything that helps with gray hair LOL. Your hair looks amazing by the way!


    I no longer have blonde, but I used to rely on purple shampoo during my ombre days. Wish I had known about dpHue then! Definitely checking out their other products.

    PS – Truly appreciate your Mean Girls reference <3
