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.

This is Shimmer Lights Violet Shampoo. 

I've been doing hair for more than 10 years. Every salon I have worked has this product for their back bar but not for sale to clients. So, this is our secret product :)

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.

The last product is Manic Panic Virgin Snow. 

They made this product for use on hair that is already bleached to the lightest possible shade. So they say on their own web site to use this after you bleach your hair and it will make your hair as white as Andy Warhol's was :)

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!

明るくした髪の毛はオレンジ、黄色よりの色になりがちやけど、やっぱり、みんな赤みの強い明るい髪は好きじゃないよね?サロンに行った時はきれいになっても、2週間もすれば赤茶けてくる経験した事ある?そんな方々のために髪色に赤みがでない様に綺麗に保ついろんなヘア商品がありますが、いっぱいありすぎて何を使っていいか分からないよね?私の髪はアジア人の中でもかなり暗い方やですが、今現在の髪色はブロンド。赤みがあまり出ない様に、日々いろんな事研究しています。黄色や、オレンジ系の色を中和させる色は、青や、紫です。青や紫の色が入ったシャンプーや、トリートメントがブロンド人口が多いんでアメリカにはたくさんあります。これらを毎回髪を洗う時に使い続けると、サロンから帰ってきたばっかりのいい感じの髪色が長く保てる。私が今回一番強く言いたかった事は、私達美容師は、綺麗になるお手伝いは出来ます。ですが、自宅ケアの積み重ねこそが、綺麗な髪を保つ秘訣だと思ってます。自宅ケアをしていても、髪の質、髪の色にあった、ヘア商品を使っていないと、効果が全く見れない事も多々あります。自分の髪は何を必用としてるのか、今度ヘアカット行った時に美容師さんに一杯質問してみてください。
