Blonde is super trendy this fall, but if you are after the icy blonde and you end up with brassy blonde, these tips will help you get rid of it.
When pigments are removed from the hair to get to a platinum color and the darker your hair, the more difficult is to lift the color -this is when your yellow, orange or red undertones appear.
Trying to remove brassy tones by further bleaching can damage your hair, and that is why colors use toner to further lighten your hair -as the results are not permanent, the color can reappear.
Purple shampoo is an effective and easy way to tone blond hair. Since purple and yellow are opposite on the color wheel, the toner will neutralize brassy tones.
If you have dark blonde hair and notice an orange or red shade, it is better to use a blue toner to cancel these.
No matter your undertones, make sure you use products that are made for bleached hair, protect your hair from the sun and avoid swimming pools. The chlorine water can change the shade or your hair and turn it brassy.
