How to Fix Brassy Locks

Have you bleached your hair hoping to look like Gwen Stefani but ended up with brassy locks?

White blonde hair is a beautiful thing to behold, but it can be difficult to accomplish, especially if you are just bleaching it on your own. Luckily, you don’t have to be stuck with bright orange and yellow hair! There are a few things you have to do to prevent the brassy tones from taking over your look:

#1. Get your hair toned.

A toner will counteract the ugly yellows and oranges in your hair. Keep in mind that toner won’t make your hair lighter, just less brassy. So, it’s important to make sure that your base color is as light as you want it to be before you get your hair toned.

#2. Use purple shampoo.

Purple shampoo helps to combat brassiness, and it will restore your hair to its former glory.  A great purple shampoo is a Clairol hair product called Shimmer Lights, and it is perfect for restoring those ashy tones for people with blonde or silver hair.

#3. Purchase a shower filter.

If you have hard water at your house, the iron deposits in the water can leave you with oranges and yellows in your hair. A shower filter will help to filter out the iron so that you can keep your beautiful white blonde color for longer.

Once you've bleached and toned your hair, shop with us at Beauty It Is for the best purple shampoos, including Shimmer Lights from Clairol.
