You love to colour your hair blonde. Blonde hair makes you feel sexy and gorgeous. However, after a few weeks, you notice that your once gorgeous blonde locks get brassy and orange streaks; a clear tell-tale sign that you are not a natural blonde. And you hate looking at it because it makes you feel embarrassed. So, you search for the solution — a hair toner that will definitely prevent your blonde from turning brassy.
Did you know that even salons use a toner to bleach dark hair? So what is a hair toner?
A hair toner has a small amount of ammonia in it, which is the one responsible for changing the chemical pigment makeup of the hair shaft. You use it to cancel out and correct unwanted tones in your hair, such as brassy yellow, gold, orange etc. It grabs on to shades of orange and yellow and neutralises them to achieve a different shade of blonde. Therefore, it makes a big difference in getting a flattering blonde look.
Now you know what a hair toner is and how it works, let me tell you about the different types…
There are three basic types of hair toner. These are permanent, semi-permanent, and demi permanent. Permanent toner is often used because it can cover your previously coloured hair. The semi-permanents and demi-permanents are only used if you want to enhance your natural hair colour.
And the different forms and brands you can choose from…
There are many kinds of hair toner to choose from. We offer a good selection of trusted brands in our online store. Here are some of the options:
1. Toning Shampoo and Conditioner
If you are not keen on using spray toners, try a convenient alternative in the form of shampoo or conditioner. Just like your ordinary shampoo or conditioner, you apply then rinse. You could try something like John Frieda Toner Color Renew Shampoo and John Frieda Toner Colour Renew Conditioner. The shampoo removes dirt and mineral deposits on your colour treated hair, while helping boost colour and extend brightness and lustre. Then, the conditioner gives your colour treated or highlighted blond hair extra brightness and shine for a salon fresh look.
2. Cream or lotion
Cream or lotion toner is applied after shampooing and left on for a few minutes before rinsing off. It is specially formulated to neutralise brassiness in colour treated blonde hair. And it refreshes blonde tones in between salon or home colour treatments.
