Purple shampoo has been a gold standard for keeping blonde hair bright and preventing brassiness from taking over. In recent years, a handful of brands have applied this concept to teeth. Since yellow and purple are opposite each other on the color wheel, there are pigments in purple that balance out yellow tones, which tend to be unwanted in blonde hair and teeth. You can think of purple toothpaste as a toner for your teeth. Trying the trend can feel risky when your mouth is full of magenta goo, but these are the brands to trust with your smile.

Kim Kardashian has proclaimed her love for this “purple shampoo of teeth.” In a previous Instagram story, she told followers she was “obsessed” with the formula that “uses V34 color correcting technology to minimize unwanted yellow tones and staining.” She even showed the camera how “white and neutralized” her teeth looked after using the product. The brand notes that this serum works best when paired with a whitening treatment, but it could also be used on its own, along with toothpaste, to conceal yellow undertones.
