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 to the 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? 

Delorenzo is manufactured exclusively in Australia by a family business that cares for the wildlife. By using De Lorenzo Silver Shampoo, you get extra kudos for environment care and for supporting domestic products. Additionally, 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.

Vegan-Friendly 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. Its manufacturing process is cruelty-free. That’s often a primary concern if you are looking into a vegan-friendly option or just love and care for animals and want to walk to talk of your cause. 

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 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 the 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 and. 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 improver digestion and heal the body from within. With its focus on locally-grown ingredients, Novafusion uses Kakadu Plum extracts to boost 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? 

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 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 od 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 hairs 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 benefit form 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 compares to other colour restoration choices. Yet, when you calculate in-salon costs for colour maintenance, you are on the plus side, not to mention the focus on organic components, which always comes at a cost you invest in the environment.
