Keeping up with any shade of blonde is tedious and sometimes an all day task. Luckily, through A LOT of trial and error I’ve found the best products to keep ugly canary yellow and orange tones away! Some of these aren’t the cheapest but I really do believe that they are worth every penny and that’s why I feel comfortable recommending them!
This is a leave in conditioner I use after every hair wash. All it takes is a few sprays in towel dried hair and tangles are no more! Not to mention it also leaves my hair soft and shiny.
This is a little combo I use weekly to help tone my hair. I leave the purple shampoo on for 3-5 minutes and it completely banishes any ugly uneven tones. I’ve noticed sometimes that purple shampoos can be harsh and leave my hair dry but this one doesn’t at all! I’ve shown this as a duo but you can of course purchase separately.
Batiste has 2 different blonde dry shampoos, a light blonde and brilliant blonde. Not only does this function as a dry shampoo but it has a hint of color to blend into your hair. I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week and the rest of the time this is what I use to keep my blonde looking fresh!
I once bleached my hair 3 times in a week (because I think I’m a stylist) and it was so dry and brittle I was legitimately scared it would break off and I’d have no hair. I used this ONCE in the shower for about 5 minutes and immediately after the damage dramatically decreased! The next day any rough patches DISAPPEARED completely! My hair was totally recovered! I swear by this stuff!
*In this example I’m using the Wella Color Charm T18 because it’s the most popular. However, there are so many other Color Charm toners for blondes that are just as beautiful. I’ve used T10, T11, T14, and I’m currently using T28.*
I would say this method of banishing brassy tones is one of the most effective but if your hair is darker than the desired color of toner you’re using it won’t work! Your hair must be the desired color or lighter for the toner to take to your hair effectively.
You have to mix this toner with a developer!
You definitely do not want to just dump the toner by itself on your head. I mix 1 part toner with 2 parts developer, carefully cover all of my hair with it, and leave on for a max 30 minutes. Then wash as normal and boom! You’ve got yourself an all over even color!
This is another holy grail product for marinating the integrity of your blonde hair after bleaching and toning. You definitely need a good arsenal of supplies to make sure your hair doesn’t just fall off of your head! And good news! This one isn’t expensive and you can find it at Wal Mart, Target, CVS, etc!
I use the tiniest drop of this along with It’s a 10 Leave-in Conditioner after towel drying my hair and it makes my hair glow and feel so soft!
