well,long story short...i naturaly have black hair and i highlight it sevral times at the hair dresser to go really blonde...yes, it is damnaged but not that bad...any how, my hair dresser putts this really really toner on me, its almost this beautiful whitish blond colour but it washes out kinda quik,kinda gets brassy till the next visit to the salon...my hair dresser told me about the violet washes.does that help alot?i think i'm gonna get it...but i also hurd if you putt like a blue purpel toner once aweek it keeps it in that nice blond colour more...will that damage it though?or using the purpel be enough???..i really need help on this cuz i hate that brassy colour so much!

Oh, Don't ask me on this one lipglossbaby, I've divorced two of them already! Bad Grin

My suggestion would be a change to a beautiful raven black color!

Hello, coming out of lurkdom to repond to your post. Anyways,all the purple shampoos cancel out the orange in your hair to make the blond bright once again. I use them and they really do work. The one I have now is "Shimmer Lights" by Clairol. Ask your hairdresser where to buy it. Use it every time you wash until you have bright blonde once again, if your hair is really brassy you can let it sit in for 5 or so minutes before rinsing. Once your hair is bright only use it as every now and then depending on how often you shampoo. I wash my hair twice a week and use it once a month. After your blond is bright be careful not to use again until your hair is slightly brassy as it will tint your hair blue, so be careful. HTH!

I wanted to turn my jet black asian hair a dirty blonde/light brown color. I used a brass reducer, and it was still reddish. Eventually it turned brassy, so I semi-perm it black again. What did your stylist use?

I'm glad to see you kept the blonde. Glad you are loving it.

PS. Try adding some sea kelp bioferment to you conditioner. It worked wonders for my over processed hair.

It is true about the blue or purplish toner. They do work. Simply using a shampoo for white blondes or a shampoo for silver/grey hair will supply a bit of the blue/purple tone that makes the "white" in the blond really POP!

I also use Clairol Shimmer Lights and agree that it really does work. If you can't find it locally, there are a few places online that sell it for very reasonable prices.

I have very light blonde, almost platinum colour hair. I am on my second bottle of delorenzo silver lights shampoo - and it's great. I use it every second day and it tones down the brassiness and is quite a good shampoo. The other one I've used is the Goldwell Semi permanent mousse, recommended to me after a accidently complimented a hairdresser on her hair colour. Its the 10V that is best for light blonde for toning down brassiness or golden tones.
I've read the Redken platinum blonde glossing leave in treatment is good (makeup alley).
Hope that helps - it's a bugbear of mine too as my hair is naturally golden. Very Happy

It's so funny to me to read about folks using Clairol Shimmer Lights on their hair... but only because it's one of the top shampoos dog show people use to keep their white dogs white!!! Shock

I have two Aussies that have a lot of white on them. When they've been hanging out in the wonderful Georgia red clay, the white tends to turn orange. So I use the Shimmer Lights to get them white again. But I promise you, if you leave it in too long, it will give you purple hightlights! One of my dogs had a nice purple-hued ruff for a few weeks because I got distracted while he was soaking...

I usually buy mine at Sally's.

I would advise the purple shampoo (use Shimmer Lights myself) but no more than once a week or it can also "Muddy" your highlights as my colorist call it. When my highlights are perfect I don't even use it at all.

Aveda Blue Malva conditioner is also great for this. It is purple like the other products, but I find that this one leaves my hair in great condition as well.

Many years ago I was a natural blond and so I try to keep it up as best I can. I think the most important thing is to find the right colorist and if they are good they will never suggest you use bleach more than 3-4 times a year or your hair will never recover. To tone down the brass without losing the color, my best trick it is not shampoo for at least two days after the bleaching, it really sets the color and then once you do shampoo you will lose the brassiness but the color will stay longer.

Thats strange, I've nver heard this from a colourist and I've been to a range of salons! If they do it properly, and you look after the condition of your hair, you should be ok. I get mine done around every two months, so about five-six times a year, and my biggest issue is thickness as my hair is so fine. The bleaching really helps with this, and nearly every hairdresser has commented on how soft my hair is....(even if baby fine), and even when I haven't had it cut for six months - when I was trying to grow it.

Do you mean a toner at your salon?
In my experience, I dont find a separate toner necessary with the purple shampoo. But, I have had it done before,when I wasnt using the shampoo, and it did come out nicely. The salon toners make your hair soft and shiny as well, which the shampoos arent as good at doing. Basically the cost is the same as the toner I had cost about the same as the shampoo, maybe slightly less (but then the shampoo bottle lasts longer too usually...).

I might go back to my salon and have a toner if I had something special on, but I use the purple shampoo and find it effective day to day in keeping my blonde hair from going yellow and easier time-wise as well. Very Happy

For purple shampoos...

I use Matrix "So Silver".

I was told in the salon that many "white-haired grandmas" use it to maintain their platinum blonde hair, and prevents it from turning into a "cheap yellow" blond.

I use it, because although I'm naturally dirty blonde, my base is a tiny bit redish and sometimes my highlights tend to turn yellowish, which I hate.

nelissa49 I also have baby fine hair that is naturally curly, it looks like I have alot of hair but the texture is very thin and like you mentioned when you get color it opens the hairshaft so you get some added body to your hair, for a time period. But after years of getting color, my hair really was just too damaged and since I have cut back on how many times a year I go, it has helped alot.
