One of the worst things about colouring your hair a bright shade of red or blonde is the brassy, orangey tint it turns into once it begins to fade. This is one of the make reasons why most girls are always on the fence about dyeing their hair red or blonde. But if you’ve already taken the plunge and are wondering how to get rid of the brassiness, fret not, we’ve got you covered.
Here are a few tips that can help you fix your brassy hair…
Use a hair toner
A hair toner is a great way to neutralise some of that striking brassy, yellow tone and give your hair a more cool tone. Instead of applying a toner just by itself, you can mix a little bit of hydrogen peroxide right after bleaching your hair to ensure that your hair does not turn orange in the first place. To get the results you want, you may need to repeat this process a few times.
Apply over the counter hair dye
If your colour has turned patchy with bits of blonde and orange, chances are, you didn’t use the right quantity of bleach or dye. To fix this, simply colour your hair again to prevent the previous colour from showing. You may need your mom or BFF for this method. Ask her to divide your hair into multiple sections and apply the colour carefully to each section.
Colour them brown
Use a medium ash blonde hair dye to tone down the orange in your hair to a cool light brown shade. This will help neutralise the orange and leave your hair a beautiful shade of light brown.
