Amazing shampoo! I balayage my own hair using the Revlon Frost & Glow kit in the shade Honey. My hair did not turn out yellow by any means (the kit is seriously great) but it was a tinge brassy and warm for my liking. Unfortunately the only other shade Revlon carries is Platinum but I didn't want to go that extreme, so I decided to tone my hair. I walked into a beauty supply store with the intention of buying an ashy blonde toner, but was recommended this instead. Immediately after the first wash, my highlights were lifted into a beautiful shade of ashy blonde! I did leave the shampoo on for a few minutes, but any longer and it might turn your hair purple so be mindful of that. Bonus: I have a really oily scalp and this shampoo has managed to keep my hair looking clean for 3 days! It was also very affordable at CAD $12.

I use to always use Redken BodyFull shampoo and conditioner, but it is discontinued. I tried and tried to find something new. I finally asked my salon and they suggested this since I do have natural silver streaks. I love this shampoo. It is gentle, gives my great shine, bounce, and lift. The scent is very gentle and nice. I highly recommend if you are silver like me. I know that some people mentioned it dried their hair, not me. My hair with other brands is dry, this is very moisturizing for me. I wash my hair everyday and sometimes twice a day.NOTE: The shampoo is purple. That does not bother me, but I will let you know that it will stain and it will not come out. I did not realize I left some in the white grout of my shower stall, my grout is now purple. Apparently I am a violent scrubber to the point that some of the purple got on my bathroom door. My interior doors are catalyzed white lacquer and I scrubbed and scrubbed and it won't come out.

I have been using this Matrix So Silver Shampoo for about 6 months now, previously I was using the John Freida version. I do like this shampoo, however, I feel like there is prob a lot better ones out there, its a very drying shampoo, I have to deep condition after ever use of this stuff. A girl I work with has always used the Paul Mitchell Silver SHampoo and I suggested she try the Matrix So Silver and she said it dried her hair out too. So, I don't think its just me that has that problem.

As a brunette I like this shampoo, but for the price I prefer Pro:voke Touch of Silver twice a week Brightening shampoo treatment - less than half the price of the Matrix shampoo. Because both are so potent, even when mixed with my Avalon Rosemary shampoo (two thirds Avalon to one third silver shampoo) I only need a small amount. I leave the concoction in for two or three minutes and it really tones down my coloured hair, which currently has slightly brassy roots. Any longer and it gives my darkest brown hair a subtly gorgeous aubergine tinge. No dryness whatsoever. Other tricks I use every few days to counteract brassiness and colour-fading are Shikai Colour Reflect shampoo in Deep and L'Oreal Chroma Care conditioner in 23 Cool Brown.

Another good Matrix product. So silver definitely cuts through the brassiness in my hair and leaves me with a nice clean blonde. It takes a bit of work to get a good lather and it does leave my hair dry but I find this is common with purple shampoos. I think you just need to follow up with a extra moisturising conditioner like Matrix Biolage Hydratherapie Conditioning Balm. The price is reasonable but the bottle is smaller than other purple shampoos that I've purchased. Overall I am happy with So Silver and would repurchase in the future.

Love how it makes my hair ashy but after using it I began breaking out around my hair line, neck and scalp. It wasn't until I stop using it my skin went back to normal. Overall great for its silver purpose and price, wouldn't buy it again after all the acne.

This does work well- it is certainly a good dark purple color. It does the job. But it is difficult to use- it doesn't easily coat all of your hair. Also, when i rinse, it makes my hair SO tangly and straw like. WARNING! This burns the heebe jeebies out of your eyes. It literally feels like you are shoving tiny solid masses into your eyes if there is any contact. BE CAREFUL!

I have balayage hair which sometimes gets a little yellowish if i havnt been to the salon for a while. This shampoo really is amazing it cancels any of those yellow tones out and leaves me with an ashy blonde. The texture is smooth it doesn't have a bad smell, It doesn't break my hair either. If anyone here has used this and thought om-gosh its turning my hair purple don't stress!! it washes out after it wont stay like that. If for some reason it did all you need to do is put another shampoo product over it and you'll be fine :)

What an amazing shampoo! I have been a shimmer lights user and it worked for the first two weeks then started making my hair very brassy!..lets just say I threw the rest in the trash!This shampoo was recommended to me by a lady who works for Ulta. She said she used it and would never go back to another product. I was iffy at first because I was told it can leave your hair with a grey/purpled huey look..and very dry.but lets just say I washed my hair one time with this shampoo and I almost cried... (tears of joy). My hair was that ugly brassy tone with some red in it...I had bleached it twice before that, toned it three times..that helped but my hair kept going back to orange..eww.I washed my hair, left it in for 6 mins as I massaged it..I also bought the John Freda sheer blonde conditioner..and let me say, I was amazed with what this product did for me. I went from not wanting to go out with orange ugly hair to wanting to flaunt it everywhere. I have had soooo many comments and people ask how I got my hair so blonde/white! I tell them one bleaching and continue to use this product and youll achieve your goals! I love love loooovvveeee this shampoo. I will continue to recommend it to everyone! 100% a confidence booster!

This is a very good silver shampoo! I have blonde, coloured hair and it easily gets yellowish, so I use silver shampoo once a week. Matrix“s shampoo is the best cheap silver shampoo (ca. 9e) I“ve tried. It“s very effective and it doesn“t make the hair lilac, like some others do. It simply takes away the yellow tones and gives a hint of silver shine.Unfortunately it dries the hair out, like all the silver shampoos.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
