What can I do about avoiding brassiness in my hair color?


Answer by  cuteypye26 (65)

To avoid brassiness in your hair you can use a color depositing shampoo that has a violet undertone such as Clairol's Shimmering Lights or you can go to a salon and ask the stylist about trying to find you a suitable hair color that has a base to eliminate the brassiness.

If you are a blonde, using a purple shampoo will help tone down the brassy color. For brunettes, I would recommend not using color with peroxide. Try using a semi-permanent color. Also, for both haircolors, protect your hair when in the direct sun with a hat or shampoo with sunscreen.

If you are dyeing your hair at home you can avoid brassiness by buying a product that says "ash tone" on the box. Stay away from anything that says gold,or red on the box because it will bring out more of your natural red undertones. You can buy a dark purple corrector shampoo at most salons which will help also.

If you are dying your hair yourself then it is your selection of hair color combined with your underlying natural color. Products that you can buy in the store are not sufficiently perminant to cover natural color. There are tints that can help with brassiness, such as a blue tint. However, the best solution to get help from a professional.

Brassiness is a common haircoloring problem. Using shades with the words "warm, red, or gold" can cause brassiness, as can trying to lighten hair by too many shades. Avoid brassiness by using haircoloring with an ash tone not more than 2 shades lighter than your natural color.

Brassiness in haircolor is caused by the hairs natural tendency to want to pull red. To avoid this, you should use a small amount of an ash (green-toned) dye when coloring.

Definitely go with an ash blonde. I often use ash toner when bleaching my hair to tone down some of the pee yellow ashiness. I know the undesirable result you mean. Also, make sure to wash with a purple tinted shampoo like Pantene Blonde. That keeps it from getting brassy.
