Wanna participate in an online challenge that doesn’t require you to kiss a cow or eat a Tide Pod? Then the “Purple Shampoo Challenge” might be just the thing for you.

The new craze  — which is currently taking off on TikTok — is less of a “challenge” and more of a trend, as most users appear to simply be pouring purple shampoo onto their heads in the hopes of changing the appearance of their hair.
