Highlighted Hair and Brassy Tones
What can you do about highlighted hair and brassy tones? Have you noticed you love your hair color fresh out of the salon and a few weeks later your hair gets brassy? A few like their brassy tones for it adds warmth to a blush-less complexion and can enhance certain eye tones but if you don’t want brass, here’s what you can do about it.
-Wait two days before shampooing you hair after a color process.
-Use a shampoo for colored hair and use cooler water rinse in the shower. Which one is the best in a swatch test of 30 shampoos? So far, “Back To Basics”, hands down. Ten bucks to boot.
-Wear a hair product with sun screen or a hat to protect the sun from lightening your hair from your brown to a brassy tone and mix that with the blond from the salon equals brassy blonde.
-Once you start to see brass, use a blue shampoo for medium blondes and a purple shampoo for light blondes to keep your blonde on the cool side before you next salon visit.
-Consider asking about a mineral removal before your color service for mineral deposits on the hair can hinder the hair color to grasp as intended.
