Will this make my dark hair blonde?
No. The purpose of purple shampoo and conditioner is to help tone and brighten hair that is already blonde. It is not a hair-coloring or bleaching product that can change the color of your hair from dark to lighter tones. It only helps remove brassiness or yellowish hue from light-colored hair and highlights.
Will this make my hair colored purple?
No. While the shampoo and conditioner have a purple pigment, it does not turn your hair purple like a hair dye. Just make sure to rinse off the products well every time you use them. If you have medium color hair, you won’t see any change except that any yellow undertones will be countered. Dark hair will be unchanged.
How often should I use this shampoo and conditioner?
We know plenty of users that use it twice a week and we know of plenty others that use it once a month, and this is a good range. It's safe for use frequently and is great once a week or twice a month - it's all up to you. Remember if you use it too often (daily) it can turn your hair purple, so it's not recommended to use it as a daily shampoo.

How long should I leave the product on my head?
When using the shampoo, you may leave it on your hair for 3-5 minutes to allow its purple pigment do its “magic”. That's if you have natural blonde hair. If you have color-treated hair, you can let it stay for a bit longer - 5-6 minutes should do the trick. For silver / platinum hair you can leave it for 15-20 minutes. The purple conditioner should follow if you want to soften your hair and make it more manageable, and to increase the tone's intensity. When using the conditioner, leave it for 2-3 minutes to let your hair soak up on the conditioner’s hair-moisturizing benefits.
