How do you cool down unsightly brassiness?
Endless hairwashes and styling, too much sun exposure… And disaster strikes. Your colouring treatment has lost pigment and is turning brassy! Here is an action plan for saying goodbye to those brassy highlights, and hello to a hair colour which is as beautiful as the day you got it.
Use purple shampoo at home
This is an SOS treatment for covering unsightly brassy highlights in one hairwash! This colouring shampoo cools down brassy highlights by leaving a layer of blue and purple pigments on the hair’s surface. It’s easy – all you need do is lather up a small amount of product and apply it to your locks (but not the roots). Then leave it to soak in for a few minutes before rinsing. Go for a shampoo shade which matches the strength of your brassy highlights, as the darker the product is, the greater its corrective effects will be on your hair. Go for mauve to get rid of slight copper highlights or purple for brassy highlights which have seriously set in.
A new in-salon colouring treatment
Are the effects of a colour shampoo not enough for you? Then you have no other option but to go to your hairdresser so that they can rid your hair of its more stubborn brassy highlights by applying a colour. Only your hairdresser is able to create the right colour blend which can definitively cool down the depigmented brassy legacy of your previous colouring treatment. To do so your colourist will pick a shade close to your own, but containing added purple pigments to rid your hair of every last trace of copper tones… And there you are with your initial hair colour back.
A piece of advice: in future, use haircare products for coloured hair to keep your colour intact and prevent it from changing!
