    i never found one. however, what i learned from jeepcurlygurl is to use ardell's red/gold corrector -- i use it in conditioner, i believe she puts hers in shampoo.
    you can buy it at sally's (i get mine online from sally's). it is used in some colorings to keep brassiness out. it also does a great job of removing the yellow from gray/white hair. there is a small one-time use envelope packet when you go onto the website, but click for a larger size and there is a tiny bottle that is good for many, many uses. like jeep, i just add a bunch to a bottle of conditioner, then use whenever it seems like i need it. i generally use it once a week. just wash my hair, put in the conditioner w/the corrector, shower, then rinse out. and, i love how my hair feels well-conditioned as i am using a cg conditioner of my choice. again, you can use this is in shampoo instead.

    Yes I'm a fan of the red/gold corrector. I use it in conditioner (I never use shampoo).
    I found that even the conditioners made for whitening grey hair were very drying. So adding it to my favorite conditioner is much better for my hair. And cheaper!

    Thanks for the input! Can that product also be added into moisturizers? I have one that i love , it is white in color, but after about two uses my hair turns yellow-ish:(

    not sure what you mean by a moisturizer? if you suspect it is what is making your hair yellow, check the ingredients. yrs ago i used deva set up pomade, then saw it included yellow color in the ingredients. i tossed it.
    also, so many things can make our hair yellow, including being out in the sun.
