Color Care Shampoo is not purple because it was specifically formulated to help address universal factors (i.e. color washout, damage, UV, hard water) that cause color fading. The shampoo is not purple because it would be contradictive to the specially formulated whips that contain optimized blue and red dye components designed for specific hair color tones.
When using similar chemistry temporary dyes leave-in applications will be more efficient at depositing dyes.
All of our products have a light, fresh, citrusy fragrance.
Color Care Shampoo has multiple differences compared to other LP shampoos including:
Lowest level of surfactants, specifically selected blend for color retention

Chelating agent that targets copper & iron

UV filter in Color Care Shampoo is positively charged so it’s substantive to hair and limits wash-off. The UV filter reduces the creation of free-radicals that can lead to damaging effects on hair and color.
