Has it been colored before? How long ago? What was used? These are all questions they might ask you. Underlying pigment When hair is colored — especially if a lightener, like Blondor , is used — some of the underlying pigments in your hair may be exposed.

As you mix it with your dye brush, it will start to form a gel. It is wise to conduct a strand test to figure out your processing time. Test out the toner and see what amount of time produces the desired result. Step 2: Apply Toner in Sections Working quickly, separate your hair into thin layers and paint the toner on, saturating the entire section.

I usually start with the hair on my part and around my face and neck, and work my way in. Step 3: Let Toner Sit The toner may start to change to a deep, dark shade of blue or purple. Do NOT be alarmed! Let it do its work. You will not end up with dark hair. Let the toner sit for 8—10 minutes for a lighter shade or 20—25 minutes for a darker shade.

Wella Professionals, based in Germany, has been making hair products for over years, and they have a real knack for getting things juuust right. Have you ever seen someone out there who tried to go platinum and got more of a "banana" color instead? This is exactly the issue that toner aims to fix.

How, you ask? Toner uses ammonia mixed with some other chemicals to create a gel. That gel, when applied to your hair, will slightly lift and tone your hair to specific and delicate shades of blonde. Sort of. In addition to giving your hair a breather, this will also give you a better idea of what your color is really like, as it will shift a bit after being toned.

Troubleshooting Toning Mistakes Going from your current hair color to your dream hair color via toning can be trickier than it initially appears. Here are three common toning mistakes and how to avoid them. Solution: Never tone higher than the level the hair is already lifted to. Solution: Never eliminate warmth completely.

Instead, try balancing it. Instead, resign yourself to the fact that it may take several sessions over the course of a few months to achieve your perfect color. Accidentally Turning Your Hair Green This can happen if you use an ash toner which contains more green tones or blue-tinted toner on yellow-toned hair, as the combination could result in a greenish color. Solution: Avoid green- or blue-tinted toners and opt for purple-tinted ones instead!

Solution: Fill hair to balance the tones before using a toner to go darker. For more information about troubleshooting toning mistakes, including examples, check out this article by PaintedChair.

Maintaining Toned Hair At this point, you should have a beautiful, non-brassy shade of blonde hair! Did you bleach your hair to the proper level before toning it? Did you leave the toner in long enough? Did you use the proper volume of developer?

Again, if you need to redo the process, wait a few days first to give your hair a breather. In my experience, toner is not truly "permanent" and will need to be used again once brassy tones start to come back through.

This will take some time though. This will work to tone your hair every time you take a shower, preventing brassiness! But again, be sure to use a moisturizing conditioner, as toning shampoos can end up drying out your hair. Read some of my other DIYs here:.
