I was looking for an alternative to my purple shampoo, which I like but it can be drying. I've heard that this toning conditioner by Pravana is not only better for your hair but that it's a pretty potent product and really gets the brassiness out of blonde hair. 

You'll see in the photos that I have many tones of blonde and even some brown in my hair.

Here are my results after using the product one time for 5 minutes.

I followed the directions and applied the Perfect Blonde conditioner for 5 minutes after shampooing. The product is a very deep purple, almost indigo colour and you can tell how potent and pigmented it is as you're applying it. 

After towel drying my hair, I swear that I could already see that it had been toned, so I was getting excited. After a quick blow dry. my hair definitely looked toned, but I didn't know how much until I saw the before and after photos that I took (shown below).

Before and after photos are both on the same side and section of my hair. Photos were taken right before treatment and right after the 5-minute Perfect Blonde treatment and quick blow dry. 

After comparing the above before and after photos, you can really see the orange tones in my hair in the before photo, especially on the right-hand side of the photo (just hover over the photo and you'll see what I mean). Then, as you scroll down to the after photo, that entire area is no longer orange, it's been completely toned by the Perfect Blonde conditioner. I'm so happy that I took the photo's, sometimes it's easier to see changes if there are any.

Bleached and/or blonde colour treated hair is notoriously dry from all of the chemical processing. This product is definitely a lot less drying on my hair than my purple shampoo.

I highly recommend this product if you need to tone down any brassiness in your hair. It's much more effective than my usual purple shampoo that I use once a week. By looking at my before picture, it appears that my purple shampoo wasn't doing its job. 

Although it's pricey, I will continue to purchase this product. I spend a lot of money on my hair and by using this product, I can keep it looking fresh and new.

In this line, they also have a daily use purple shampoo and conditioner (different from the masque) which are immediately going on my list of items to try! This may prevent the brassiness in the first place. 😊

ps. It's been 7 months since my last cut and colour, so my hair isn't looking it's healthiest, to say the least. But at least with this product, I've gotten rid of a lot of the brassiness in just one use.

I purchased mine for around $18 on Amazon.

Have you tried this product!?

  1. Great information here. It sounds good. Thanks for visiting my bog and I hope you're doing amazing! XOXO

    1. Thanks, Maria! Thanks for coming by. I hope you are doing amazing too! xoxo

  2. Great find girl! Hair looks great too. I've always found it interesting that you put purple shampoo on and it doesn't turn your hair purple �� lol science!

    1. I need a cut SOOOO bad! But this is quite amazing for removing the brassiness. Oh, and your hair can turn purple if you leave it on long enough. ;)

  3. This looks like it worked really well for you Amy - definitely a reduction in the golden tones, and if it helps counteract the dryness from lightening, even better! I find that taking photos helps me to measure results far better too xxx

    1. The results are quite amazing for just one 5 min treatment. :D xo

  4. Can you put this on dry hair?
