Is your nice blond hair coloring you got at the salon getting brassy after two weeks?
When you go blond, the first thing we (I'm a hair stylist) have to do is bleach your hair. After you bleach your hair, it is usual that a clients hair gets a bit brassy. So, we use toner to cancel the brassiness. But this toner not will stay on your hair forever...
If you do not want brassy blond hair, you will need to take care of your hair at home by yourself. I'm Asian, and my natural hair is dark, but my current hair color is blond. I keep toning my hair all the time at home to keep a nice blond hair color without the brassiness.
Sure you can do it at home too. But first you will need to understand some simple color theory.
This is color wheel...
The opposite color to orange & yellow is Violet and blue violet. Because these colors are opposite/complementary, they can cancel each other out. Brassy hair has orange and yellow tones so use violet or blue violet toner!
The products below are the products I use personally at home to avoid my blond hair coloring from turning brassy.
The next product is Aveda Blue Malva Color Conditioner.
I've worked at an Aveda salon before. I love their products and philosophy.
I use this product just like using regular conditioner. But when I feel my hair is really brassy, I use this as a pre-shampoo treatment. Which means I apply this on my dry or damp hair, then put a parasitic cap over my head wait about 15 minutes, then shampoo.
So this way, your brassy hair will tone well and give good moisture to your hair. Available at Amazon.
I'd like to say from a professional hair stylist's point of view, we can help make you more beautiful. But, if you want to continue to maintain the same "just came back from hair salon look, you have to use the right hair products at home often and take care of your hair.
Also, to use the right hair products for your hair texture and color is really really important. Ask a lot of questions about hair products next time while you get a hair cut. That way, you are getting product education, it' like buy one get one free!
