The Science Behind Blueberry Extract for Purple Toning Shampoos


Purple toning shampoos have become a staple in the haircare routine of those with blonde, silver, or gray hair. The magic ingredient that gives these shampoos their color-correcting power is often blueberry extract. In this blog, I’ll delve into the science behind blueberry extract in purple toning shampoos, exploring its benefits and how it contributes to maintaining vibrant and cool-toned hair.

The Power of Purple Toning Shampoos

Understanding the Concept

Purple toning shampoos are designed to counteract the yellow or brassy tones that can develop in light-colored hair. This color correction is achieved through the use of purple pigments, which are opposite to yellow on the color wheel. When applied, these pigments neutralize the unwanted yellow hues, leaving the hair looking fresh and cool.

The Role of Blueberry Extract

Blueberry extract contribute to the shampoo's efficacy in several ways:

  • Color Wheel Science: Blueberry extract, with its deep purple-blue color, complements the purple pigments in the shampoo. This dual-toned approach enhances the neutralization of yellow tones, providing a more comprehensive color correction.
  • Antioxidant Properties: Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins. These antioxidants help protect the hair from free radical damage caused by environmental factors, contributing to overall hair health.
  • pH Balancing: Blueberry extract helps maintain the pH balance of the shampoo. Hair cuticles are slightly acidic, and a well-balanced pH ensures that the cuticles lie flat, resulting in smoother and shinier hair.

The journey of blueberry extract from fruit to shampoo involves a careful extraction process. The goal is to capture the beneficial compounds without compromising their efficacy. The extraction is often done through cold pressing or maceration, preserving the integrity of the antioxidants and pigments.

Creating an effective purple toning shampoo involves a blend of art and science. Haircare experts meticulously formulate the shampoo, considering factors such as the concentration of blueberry extract, the balance of other ingredients, and the overall texture and fragrance of the product.
