How to Get Rid of Brassy Hair Color {Homemade Blond Hair Toner}

  • Melissa McDowell-Gould

    Hello I am a licensed cosmetologist and I have a coule questions... How does the lavender oil tone your hair? Isn't the oil just used for smell? There is no tint to the oil whatsoever. Any type of toner you buy whether it be toning shampoo, conditioner, or color the "lavender" they are refering to is the color lavender. Not the scent. What this mix is actually doing is stripping your hair of all the elements that can dull your blondes but the only ingredient that is doing that is the vinegar not the lavender oil. The toner you buy that is lavender color actually puts a slight purple shade onto your blondes which cancels the yellow out. If you look at a color wheel the opposite of yellow is purple. So there you go. If I am incorrect please enlighten me. Thank you :)

    I'm not the author of this post - I just found it because I live out in the middle of nowhere and I required a toner. Plus I try to go natural wherever I can. I use this toner after I have my hair treated and it works for me. I don't use it all the time because apple-cider vinegar makes my hair greasy. I think the lavender is there as a conditioner more than anything. Lavender is very soothing and healing for the skin, so I would assume that is it's reason for it being there - it also smells nice. I am an aromatherapist, so I only use top quality oils when I make cosmetics etc. If you believe in 'vibration', lavender has a purple one - but that's not something that I can scientifically prove. :)

Brassy to Classy-I tell my clients don't forget to go get the purple shampoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If your going to spend the money for color invest in shampoo that keeps it blonde .Just rember to leave it on hair for 3 minutes then rinse.

    My husband hates that smell! lol I usually let my hair down and let it air dry the days that I use the ACV rinse. Usually I will go outside and play with my dogs or something, and I dont know if it is just the sunshine or the fact that my hair isn't in a tight bun, but once it gets dry the smell is completely gone.

    yes... I must say, it's taking a while for my hair to get used to baking soda and the ACV rinse... would love to hear feedback from some other ladies as to how long it took for their hair to adapt to the new products and look & feel normal again :-)

    Use original Dawn dish washing soap

    That would be wreak havoc, not reek havoc. Reek means to stink.

Hair Brassiness: All you need is one packet of Grape Kool-Aid Powder: 1. Wash hair with a mixture of the Grape Kool-Aid powder (just a pinch) and 4 Tablespoons of your regular shampoo. Rinse. Style as you always do. 2. The purple blue cancels out the brassy gold orange over-processed shades because it is on the opposite side of the color spectrum.

She looks like a beautiful fairy pixie! For white-blonde hair like model Agness Deyn, apply MANIC PANIC Virgin Snow toner to already bright blonde hair. The toner takes out any warmth or brassiness in your blonde. #beauty #hair #model
