Why is this a good deal? 💰

Currently just $36 with coupon code 20BOLDUNIQ20, this popular purple shampoo and conditioner set is the lowest price it's been all year. We're not sure how long this markdown will last, so we recommend snapping it up at the steep discount while you still can.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Bold Uniq’s Purple Shampoo and Conditioner is designed to minimize brassiness in gray and blonde hair by using purple tones to cancel out yellow shades and cool down gorgeous grays. The purple shampoo banishes the brassiness, while the purple conditioner repairs and revitalizes dry and damaged hair — and both contain actual violet pigments that deposit into hair to keep grays looking their very best (without, yes, making hair actually look purple). Plus, the conditioner also boasts nourishing oils that leave behind soft, frizz-free strands, super important in these hair-challenging summer months.

Both are paraben-free, sulfate-free, cruelty-free and 100% vegan, and the bottles are even made of post-consumer recycled plastic — so you can feel good about your hair products while looking great too.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 3,600 Amazon reviewers have given the Bold Uniq Purple Shampoo and Conditioner Set a flawless five-star rating, with many saying the pair helps soften hair and eliminate brassiness.

Pros 👍

"Best purple shampoo ever created, and I am not exaggerating," raved one enthusiastic shopper.

"If you read and follow the extremely simple directions, you will get perfect results," said another convert. "My hair stylist used a toner that didn't make [my hair] the silver/platinum blonde I wanted. My hair LITERALLY looked yellow and buttery. I had to go back and get it retoned, but I got this stuff in the meantime. Absolutely amazing results! Got the same color as the picture on the bottle. ... If you have yellowish hair and want more silver tones, get this stuff and follow the directions — you will be thrilled at the results!!!"

One devotee with "long gray/white hair" noticed a "considerable difference" after just a single use: "I've tried several brands to try and remove the yellowing [in my hair]. Not only did they leave in the yellow, but I ended up with a light purple stain that I could not remove. This shampoo and conditioner is working. ... I've followed the instructions exactly, and the results are satisfying. I feel confident that after another few shampoos and conditionings, my hair will be its true color. The yellowing has always made my hair look dingy and dirty. Now, it looks clean and shiny."

A final fan shared, "It definitely works! Got rid of all the brass and replaced it with cool ash tones. I get lots of compliments on my hair color when I use it. Leaves hair manageable and soft!"

Cons 👎

As with many purple-depositing hair products, this duo may leave a little something behind. "Will slightly stain the hands (mostly my nails), so if you worry about that, definitely put on gloves," said one customer. Another agreed: "Will stain your hands if you aren’t careful."

A different user also added, "It’s extremely drying, so be sure to get the conditioner and mask" — a concern several other reviewers also reported.
