Want to go blonde hair with our Riverwood Bundle? Make sure you pick up the right toner. You probably already know that to comfort your hair, you have to use bleach. To achieve a natural-looking blonde rather than a vulgar yellow or bold orange, you need to apply a hair toner to your bleached mane. How does it work, you ask? Here are the details.
How Does Hair Toner Work?
Yes. Even you are using high-quality blonde hair bundles from us, and you still need to pay attention to take care of the blonde color for the long run. When you lighten your hair, the bleach must work throughout each of those pigments to lift the stain away. Depending on how long you leave the bleach in, your hair may still have plain brassy undertones. That’s where hair toner comes in.
Hair toner works to change your hair’s undertone. It won’t completely alter your hair color, but it will help you manage the naturally blonde or lightened locks shade. In a nutshell, hair toner products neutralize unwanted warm or brassy tones to help you reach a shinier, healthier, more natural-looking shade.
When Should I Use Hair Toner?
Any time you apply bleach to your straight strands, you’ll need an excellent toner to neutralize unwanted undertones. Toners can take bright yellow or golden hair to a more natural-looking grimy, ashy, or platinum blonde. And they can be a lifesaver if your bleach job has gone wrong and you’re now walking around with a brassy orange mane.
You can even implement hair toner to targeted areas, such as highlights or roots, to change the shade. The trick is choosing the right toner to achieve the shade you want.
How Do I Use Toner?
Once you know which type and color toner to use, toning your hair is as easy as 1-2-3. Here’s how to tone bleached hair and keep it looking natural.
Mix your toner with a developer in a 1:2 ratio.
Use an applicator brush to work the mixture into your hair, focusing on the areas with unwanted undertones.
Leave the toner in for up to 45 minutes, rinse, wash with a moisturizing shampoo and deep condition.
Color-treated hair fades over time, and bleach blonde hair develops brassy tones as it oxidizes. Refresh your color with a toner every 6-8 weeks to keep that natural, healthy-looking blonde.
What Type of Toner Should I Use?
Natural blondes and bleach-blondes with bright yellow or golden undertones can often tone out unwanted warm shades with a simple purple shampoo. The purple neutralizes warm, brassy tones for a more relaxed, more natural-looking blonde.
But if you’re going through a more dramatic color change, purple shampoos alone may not cut it. You may need a more robust, ammonia-based toner, especially if your bleach job has resulted in brassy orange locks. The trick is choosing the right color toner to achieve the gorgeous blonde shade you desire.
