The shampoo doesn't "strip" the highlights. What is does is deposit brunette color so that the there isn't as much contrast between your brunette hair and the blonde highlights. Highlighted hair "grabs" more of the color than the untreated brunette does. You can switch to the John Frieda shampoo for blonde hair and the highlights should lighten up after several uses.
