De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo

Is De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo the secret ingredient for vibrant red hair?

Since we all know what it means to keep the desired lively and shiny cool red hues and get rid of the boring brassy ones, this is one shampoo that can be of help.

De Lorenzo created its Novafusion anti-fading range to provide power correctors when tones fade or don't turn exactly as planned or when your natural hair loses its mojo and becomes dull.

With De Lorenzo Copper shampoo, you can rejuvenate red tones in a similar way as De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo rejuvenates blonde hair.

You cannot completely overcome the fading of colours. All colours fade a bit, even permanent colours. However, you can improve and revitalise any boring tones by shampooing your hair with a specialised colour care shampoo.

What exactly are the advantages of De Lorenzo Copper?

Let's find out!

De Lorenzo Novafusion Copper Shampoo Benefits

Before you head in to grab your bottle of De Lorenzo red magic, it's good to check what's your desired tone. Novafusion is quite detailed in creating colour control shampoos - it has about a dozen nuances.

If you are targeting a specific tone, for example, rose gold, you can get the appropriate shade. Not all redheads will be delighted by the copper shampoo, but if you want to remove brassy tones, this will certainly be your choice.

In what other ways is the De Lorenzo Copper shampoo beneficial for your hair?

1. Includes a UV inhibitor formula

What are UV inhibitors? UB inhibitors are specially designed ingredients that hair scientists have studied for hair application. As their name says, UV inhibitors reshape the lightning effects of UV rays by restoring colour pigments and giving the initial colour its previous shine. De Lorenzo Copper, like most other shampoos from the colour care range, includes this formula.

2. Controls natural or professional hair colour

Professionally altered hair can change but so does your natural hair, be it for hormonal changes, bad weather, or just too many chemicals. With De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo you can get the beautiful bright copper-red back in shape, regardless of whether you carry it naturally or it is done in a hair salon. Natural redheads are mesmerising when the full vibrancy is at play - check out these awesome results of colour care shampoos: 


3. Anti-fading

If you like the results on natural hair, then you will love how De Lorenzo copper keeps your coloured red in shape. Acting as a colour refreshment without the chemicals in permanent and semi-permanent colours, it also moisturises and detangles coloured hair that gets dry and brittle after several washes.

This is all thanks to the organic Australian-made plant ingredients chosen carefully as friendly to coloured hair. (More about plant extracts in the next section.)

4. Reduces unwanted brassy tones

Believe it or not, that yellow undertone is not the enemy of blondes only - redheads can also suffer from undesirable brassy tones. Brassy tones make most bright, vibrant hair colours look dull, that's why so many avoid them.

Blue-coloured components, similar to those found in purple shampoo, help you achieve the wanted shade, without compromising the original red you had in mind. 


5. Packed in a neat 250ml bottle that doesn't spill

No one likes spilling shampoo bottles, in particular when they include some colour, even when it isn't permanent. The sturdy bottle of De Lorenzo Copper shampoo is durable and compact enough to provide safe travel without compromising your packing space.

Native Plant Extracts in De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo

Novafusion colour control shampoos are also known as colour care shampoos. The care component comes from natural, carefully picked ingredients that nurture hair exposed to colouring chemicals.

The changed fibre texture is thirsty for nourishment from traditionally renowned follicle-cleansing hair care extracts, such as birch and willow bark, as well as innovative lab extracts from the local haircare industry, such as Kakadu Plum. And if you have tried Rooibos tea and used it regularly, you will already know the antioxidant repairing benefits it provides for skin and hair when used on the inside.

Applied regularly as part of your hair washing routine, these ingredients provide deep cleaning by hydrating your hair and keeping its shine and softness.

How to Use De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo

You shouldn't use De Lorenzo colour care shampoos every day. It should be used sparingly, approximately once a week, depending on your needs, hair type, and its capacity to retain colour.
  • If your hair gets very greasy and you wash it every day, you can be more libertarian in how often you apply De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo - do it once a week.
  • But if you aren't shampooing your hair to clean it on a daily basis, be less generous with the colour control shampoo, as well - twice a month will be enough.

With overuse, you can cause unnecessary dryness and colour alteration that doesn't match your perfect outcome.

5 Steps to Using De Lorenzo Copper Shampoo

Follow these five steps to maximise the colour control benefits of this shampoo:

  1. Dilute 5-10 ml of shampoo (around 1-2 tsp) with 15-20ml (1-1.5 tbsp) water in a plastic cup.
  2. Massage into wet hair to lather up.
  3. Leave it in for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Rinse well.
  5. Repeat (with less shampoo) if necessary.

Most users find their ideal shampoo volume, timing, and frequency by getting accustomed to the shampoo colour saturation. This usually happens after two to three weeks of use.

Redhead Colour Control and Shine

Hair colour maintenance is especially important when you cannot visit your hairdresser as often as you'd like. It can be a saviour during a lockdown. If you are a natural redhead, that flamboyant vibrancy comes with its fair share of funny issues. Colour control and colour care don't need to be among those.

With De Lorenzo Copper shampoo you can reduce unwanted care fading and provide your hair with the organic, cruelty-free haircare it needs.

De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo

Popularly called De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo, the colour care shampoo by Novafusion is a failproof method for getting rid of brassy tones in blonde hair in a natural way.

If you are looking for a sustainable option to keep your highlighted hair shiny and healthy, this shampoo will aid in colour permanency just as you want it. That is the typical problem of hair colour maintenance longevity.

Despite using permanent colours, light blonde colours such as silver, pearl or platinum blonde fade with frequent washing. Because you cannot ditch shampoo completely (you need to have clean hair, after all) why not make the shampoo a friend to your hair? 

By using De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo, you get extra kudos for environmental care and for supporting domestic products. It's Aussie made, woo!

Importantly, your hair will be thanking you as well as the environment.


Is De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo a Good Colour Care?

De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo is part of the Novafusion colour-enhancing shampoo series, which includes tone boosters for warm and cool colours:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Chocolate
  • Copper
  • Burgundy
  • Beige blonde
  • Cool natural
  • Cherry red
  • Fire red

Furthermore, the De Lorenzo line contains a colour protect shampoo version, as well as conditioners designed to help coloured hair achieve and stick with its maximum potential. The Silver Shampoo is one of the company's bestsellers, for reasons we will explore below.


Brassy Tones Eliminator

What makes certain shampoos decolour brassy (orange or yellow) tones in blonde hair? 

Most silver shampoo variations are based on a formula with UV inhibitors. The same goes for De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo, with one very big difference from some other brands. Its manufacturing process is completely cruelty-free. That's often a primary concern if you are looking into a vegan-friendly option.

How Do UV Inhibitors Work?

UV inhibitors are ingredients that provide UV stabilisation to hair (and other) dyes. When you buy shampoo that contains them, you get an added colour polymer stabiliser which helps with the premature fading of coloured hair due to its exposure to UV light.

In contrast to only including violet or blue toners that help the cool silver pop out after many washes, De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo masters colour permanency with this improved formula for ultraviolet stabilisation.

De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo: Ingredients and Benefits

You can use De Lorenzo shampoos on professionally coloured and natural hair. Because it contains natural plant extracts and vitamins produced with organic methods, it is safe to use it on sensitive scalps that don't handle aggressive ingredients well. 

Kakadu Plum

The Australian Kakadu Plum is a native fruit to the continent with exquisitely high contents of Vitamin C. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties and helps with fighting free radicals. Therefore, Kakadu Plum has been long used as a healthy ingredient for hair and skin, but also in food. 

Both its natural form and Kakadu Plum powders are widely used to improve digestion and heal the body from within. With its focus on locally-grown ingredients, Novafusion uses Kakadu Plum extracts to boost the antiseptic qualities of its hair care.


You might have heard about the health benefits of drinking Rooibos tea already, but did you know that Rooibos is excellent for your hair, too? Rooibos has multiple hair benefits:

  • Rich with zinc, copper, potassium, and calcium that boost hair growth
  • Contains antioxidants such as aspalathin and nothofagin with anti-inflammatory properties
  • Includes flavonoids that improve blood circulation
  • Packed with polyphenols for shiny hair

If tea is not your favourite drink, you can still get the benefits from Rooibos externally by rinsing your blonde hair with De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo.


Birch tree, especially birch bark, is one of the oldest ingredients used for strong fibres. When something has proven its hair-strengthening and thickening qualities for so long, why not stick to it? 

The topical application of birch extracts and birch essential oils stimulates the natural relaxation and healing cycles of damaged hair. Hence, you not only remove unwanted brassy tones but also help the coloured hair with a faster repair.


The willow bark in the De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo invigorates hair follicles by removing excess scalp sebum for squeaky-clean hair results. Thanks to the collagen content and exfoliating properties of willow bark, you won't have traces of sebum buried deep down close to the roots. 

And because of the gentle salicylic-like effects, willow bark will provide those extra millimetres of volume that usually weigh down unsystematically washed hair.

How to Use De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo

As with most colour care products, it takes some time to achieve maximum effect with this shampoo to get used to the proper application and amount for your type of hair:

  1. Massage the shampoo into wet hair, rinse and repeat.
  2. Leave the shampoo foam in for up to 5 minutes to let the ingredients saturate the hair well.
  3. Don't overuse to avoid dull, grey-looking hair.
  4. Supplement with De Lorenzo Novafusion Colour Care Conditioner for extra brilliance and easy combing.

don't forget that you don't need to have chemically altered hair with colouration. Natural hair, including ageing hair, also benefits from washing it with De Lorenzo shampoos. For fans of all-in-one shampoo for colour maintenance, De Lorenzo colour correction shampoo can be that one solution.

Before & After De Lorenzo Silver Transformations

Note: Some of these colours only used De Lorenzo for pre-toning and not the whole transformation was made using the shampoo alone. 


Additionally, Novafusion Silver Shampoo is a bit on the pricier side compared to other colour restoration choices. Yet, when you calculate in-salon costs for colour maintenance and the focus on organic components, we think it is worth the investment.
