The Best Hair Toner For Brassy Hair

Blondes may have more fun, but when it comes to blonde hair maintenance and fighting brassy hair, not so much. When lifting pigment from hair, yellow and orange tones become apparent. Using a toner for brassy hair is step one to keeping your blonde bright or your brunette cool.

When choosing the best toner for brassy hair, it is important to consider the definition of “brassy hair”. Often people use brassy to refer to warm or golden tones, but that’s not accurate. Brassy actually means unwanted red, orange and yellow tones in bleached hair, that become apparent as the bleach lifts the hair color.

To put it simply: caramel highlights can look great, light pumpkin orange highlights don’t. The natural pigments that are left in hair after bleaching scream bleach and are really unflattering. The best way to get rid of them is using a hair toner for bleached hair to cancel them out.

A toner for bleached hair is a low-peroxide color-depositing hair dye that cancels unwanted hair tones. A hair toner for brassiness has violet and purple pigments. The best toner for orange hair will be blue, whereas the best toner for yellow hair will be violet. The best toner for brassy hair is a blue-violet tone.

Even if your goal is a golden blonde, or a warm brunette, you still want to use a hair toner for brassy hair. Otherwise, the red and yellow undertones will make your hair look less beach blonde and more Lisa Simpson.

Best Toner for Brassy Hair

The following are the best toners for brassy hair that you should use after bleaching your hair:

  • 6 Pieces - 1.4 Ounce (41ml)
  • Tones Pre-Lightened Hair Evenly,
  • Removes Remaining Brass,

Wella T18, also known as White Lady, is a powerful toner against brassiness in yellow and pale yellow lightened blonde hair. It uses a developer, so it’s not the kindest type of toner and it does smell a bit, but otherwise it’s easily the best toner for brassy hair you can find. The color lasts for a long time, and cancels yellow and brassy tones after bleaching easily. It is also easy to apply, as the developer has a creamy gel texture that doesn’t run off. It also gives the hair a very natural shine that makes double processed blonde look expensive and healthy.

If your hair is very yellow and less orange, Wella Color Charm T14 would work better. If your hair is not light enough (yellow to very pale yellow) this toner may not be as effective. You can check more about which Wella Toner to use here.

This is the best toner for brassy hair maintenance, because you can use it on the shower regularly to stop brassiness from coming through. It works great on grey and light blonde hair and makes blonde highlights shine. Even if it’s sold as a shampoo, it works best if left in the hair for about 20 minutes as a treatment against brassy hair. It is gentle with hair, so worth stocking on it if your hair is damaged by bleach and you don’t want to use a toner with developer on it again.

This is another very popular glossing treatment and toner for brassy hair. It offers salon quality results on hair that has become brassy after bleaching or due to sun exposure. It will darken hair a bit, so if you are after snow white platinum locks you should use Wella T18 instead. However, for slightly darker blondes it offers a very natural result.

This purple shampoo is the best toner for brassy hair if you have grey hairs that tend to go yellow, or a very cool, silvery blonde. It works in about half an hour and doesn’t smell badly at all. It is awesome at removing yellow and making hair look silvery white or steel grey instead of brassy, particularly if you use it as a treatment for about half an hour each week. It also gently washes hair and prevents color from fading.

Redken Blonde Idol Custom Tone Treatment for Warm or Golden Blondes

If you are a golden blonde but are worried about brassiness, this is the best toner for brassy hair you’ll find. It can be customised so less pigment is deposited when your color is fresh, and needs less. You just need to adjust the dial to the amount of brassiness in your hair, and go. In a world of violet and purple shampoos that only suit cool blondes, this product is a lifesaver for warm golden blondes that want their hair to look natural and not brassy. If you are a cool blonde, they also have a traditional purple shampoo that works in a similar way.

The best toner for brassy hair is usually a combination of two: a glossing or toning treatment right after bleaching and every few weeks afterwards, and a purple or blue shampoo as a maintenance. Being blonde ain’t easy! 😀

Best Hair Toner For Bleached Hair (Platinum)

The best time to tone your hair is right after bleaching, and your choice of toner will depend on how damaged your hair is. You want to avoid ammonia-based toners because they will damage your hair, and stick to color depositing toners.

If you are dying your hair at home, the best hair toner for bleached hair is a rainbow hair dye. Yes, I mean those hair dyes that you use to dye your hair rainbow colors. Manic Panic Virgin Snow is a great toner for brassy hair if you are aiming for silver or platinum blonde hair. It will work on hair that has been bleached nearly white, so a level 9 or 10 and it will condition your hair as you use it.

Best Toner For Orange Hair (Light Brunettes)

Wondering how to bleach dark hair without it turning orange? Often, even if the end goal is blonde, you will need to spend some time as a light brunette in between bleaching sessions. If you bleach dark hair to light brunette without toning it you will end up with muddy orange brown hair. This is less than ideal if you need to leave the house, so a toner for bleached hair is a must.

In this case, the best toner for brassy hair that looks orange is a blue toner. As you are applying on brunette or dark blonde hair, you want to avoid lightening the hair further (which would cause more brassiness). The best hair toner for brassiness in this case can be  actually quite a deep blue color, as anything light won’t show on dark hair.

If you intend to bleach your hair further, your best option is a color depositing purple shampoo and conditioner. This will wash out before your next bleaching session is due. This is also great for maintenance if your hair tends to turn brassy. If you want to fix orange hair after bleaching you may need to bleach your hair again to a lighter shade of blonde, and tone the yellow away.

Judging how yellow or orange brassy color is is not easy. Generally speaking, brassy blondes have yellow warm tones. Darker blondes and light brunettes have orange warm tones.

If your hair is too light and you use any of those blue toners, you risk your hair becoming green. This is why the best toner for blonde hair is usually purple or violet, and lighter in pigment. So if you are trying to figure out the best toner for brassy hair and you are unsure try first with a purple shampoo or blonde hair toner.

Best Toner For Brassy Hair (Brunettes)

If you are brunette, your hair will have red pigments on it. Those red pigments require a greenish toner to cancel them. A purple or blue hair toner for brassiness will remove the orange, but not the red.

The best hair toner for brassiness in darker hair is usually a semi-permanent dye with ashy undertones. Cool brunette, Ashy brunette, they all use greenish blue undertones to create the perfect cool brunette hair color.

In a pinch, you can make a toner with green food coloring mixed with conditioner. This can be a great temporary fix if your hair turned brassy over the holidays until you can fix it more permanently. It is readily available online and on supermarkets, and you can fix it with your regular conditioner. Do not mix it with purple or violet conditioners though.

How To Use Hair Toner To Remove Brassiness

You can use a hair toner for brassy hair right after bleaching, or as a glaze to refresh your color between bleaches. Most toners are applied on wet, towel dried hair. You will need to mix the color with a 10vol or 20vol developer, depending on the condition of your hair.

It is important to apply the toner only to the affected areas, and not to the entire head if not necessary. You may need to combine a toner for brassy hair on some areas, and a toner for yellow hair or orange hair in others depending on how your hair lifted.

As a rule of thumb, even the best toner for yellow hair will have little effect on hair that has unwanted orange or red undertones. This means you need to tone for the darkest undertone present in that section of hair, and an all over toner for brassy hair won’t do. This is why color correction is an art and can take significant time at the hairdresser.

Generally speaking, applying toner for bleached hair requires between 10 and 20 minutes exposure. But bleached hair can be very porous, so keep an eye on it and wash once the unwanted warmth is gone.

Color Depositing Toner For Brassy Hair

It is often not practical to tone your hair every week, and depending on your hair and circumstances brassiness can appear quickly. This happens more often to blondes, and can result in dull hair that looks yellowish.

The best way to keep yellow and orange at bay is with a color depositing shampoo and conditioner combo, used at least weekly.

  • Hello, I am planning to go Platinum like i was years ago. But nowadays things have changed quite a bit in the hair industry and im a little confused in regards to whats better for me and for the results i want. As i researched my new endeavor ive encountered some differences in methods. I wonder whether i should use a permanent haircolor instead of a demi permanent toner after bleaching. Why do most use demi permanent instead of permanent? Also, should i use a color remover on my ends before applying bleach (time and serious conditioning in between of course) to get a more even tone? I would really appreciate it someone could help me clear up these things!!! Thanks!
