You've finally done it.
You've taken the plunge and dyed your hair that perfect shade of rose gold you've been drooling over for months. But now, just a few short weeks later, you're starting to notice something...your hair is looking a little brassy. Never fear, we're here to help! Read on for our tips on how to fix brassy hair.
First things first, what exactly is brassiness?
Brassiness occurs when the natural pigment in your hair starts to show through the dye, giving your once-vibrant color a dull, orangey hue. There are a few reasons this can happen—if your hair is particularly porous, it may be absorbing too much of the color; if you use hard water, mineral deposits can cause brassiness; or if you don't use a purple shampoo, well, that could be the culprit, too.
So how do you fix it?
If you're starting to see brassiness creep in, there are a few things you can do. First, invest in a purple shampoo—it sounds counterintuitive, but trust us, it works like a charm. Purple shampoo helps neutralize unwanted yellow and orange tones in your hair, leaving you with salon-fresh color that lasts. Second, make sure you're using a protein-rich conditioner to keep your strands healthy and strong—brittle hair is more likely to absorb too much color and start looking brassy. And lastly, if all else fails, book an appointment with your colorist—they'll be able to assess the situation and give your hair the TLC it needs to get back to its gorgeous self.
Brassy hair happens to the best of us—but that doesn't mean we have to resign ourselves to dull, lackluster locks! By using a purple shampoo and protein-rich conditioner, you can keep your color looking fresh and vibrant between salon visits. And if all else fails, don't hesitate to call in the professionals—they'll know just what to do. Until Next Time!...XOXO 🍁🧡🍂
