How To Get Rid Of Brassy Hair

My hair was getting super brassy! I hated it! I did a little research and decided to tone my own hair instead of going to the salon which will cost me a fortune. I had these ugly orange ends and discovered that I need a blue/purple toner to neutralize that color.

What I used:
2 parts: Ion Sensitive Scalp Developer 20 Volume
1 part: Wella Charm Color Toner #15 (Silver Lady)
The direction said you can leave it in your hair for up to 30mins, but I only did 10mins because I was scared it was going to turn my hair grey. Of course it didn't and took out the orange/brassiness out of my hair. I'm going to leave in longer next time for an even an ashier look.
Yay!

  3. Looks really good! My stylist also recommends using a violet shampoo to help tone brassiness. I use KMS Violet shampoo and it works wonders.

  5. Yay for an experiment that worked out well! I always get so paranoid when it comes to hair (I literally killed it several times when I was younger with Sun-In / home perms / etc.) LOL
