The worst thing that can happen to grey hair is that after a few washes a yellow/blonde undertone starts to shine through. A shampoo with purple or blue pigments supposedly stop this from happening, but the effect of it is minimal.
I needed something more radical against the yellow glow on my hair. Temporary hair dye in a pale cool color (opposite of the yellow) was the perfect solution. Dying your hair with this pastel hair dye only takes 15 minutes. I use lilac from Directions, the pastel color changes from a light blue to a pastel fuschia in different light. But after a few washes the color fades and the hair color becomes a cold toned grey.
