What is overtoning hair and how can I prevent it?

Overtoning hair is one of the worst things that could happen to our hair. Overtoning occurs to those who dyed their hair. Hair turns brassy, which is yellowish or orangish when the dyed color starts to fade out over time. The brassiness can also occur if the underlying pigments in the locks are not eliminated even when bleaching or lifting is done. What may be the reason, if you are experiencing something similar, it is time to turn to some better options to control the way your hair looks, otherwise, you might have to spend a huge amount just to get it fixed and so, prevention is better than cure. Some of the options that come to you as a solution are:

Ask the expert

You can always see an expert in the field as the ultimate problem solver for you. A toner or a gloss is the best way you can at least try to prevent the overtoning hair. Going back to your salon and getting that fixed in the first place is one of the best options to save some money and also save your hair from damaging and looking a bit shaggy. Hair toners are used to neutralize the warm tones or the brassy hair tone. 

Shampoo for blonde hair

The best shampoo for blonde hair is the one with a purple formula. The purple or blue shampoo eliminates the chances of any orange or yellow tones that ultimately result in overtoning hair. However, using the blue or purple shampoo for blonde hair cancels out the orange or yellow tones. All you have to do is apply the purple shampoo once a week, swapping it with your regular shampoo. 

 

Washing with cold water

The temperature of the water with which you wash your hair or hair extension can also bring a big difference when it comes to overtoning hair. One of the important reasons as to why the hairs turn brassy is because you are probably washing them with hot water. The best temperature of the water with which you should rinse your hair is lukewarm. Apply the shampoo and conditioner in the perfect match after which you have to rinse it with lukewarm water. 

These are some of the ways by which you can prevent your hair from getting brassy or overtoned. Ensure that you take the advice of your salon expert if you have dyed your hair for the first time because only they can suggest a suitable shampoo for blonde hair and the best pairing conditioner.
