What Is Brassy Hair?

Brassy hair is a common concern for those with coloured blonde hair. Brassy tones are when lightened hair develops yellow/orange tones and cancels out bright blonde tones, ashy toners, and white blonde colour. Here we’re looking at how to keep your cool as a blonde and prevent your hair colour from turning brassy using silver shampoo and conditioner.

Why Does Hair Turn Brassy?

You may be wondering why your cool blonde shade has developed a brassy tinge over time. We’re here to explain the possible reasons behind this and how to prevent brassy hair tones.

  1. Your Hair Might Naturally be Brassy or Warm: although ashy tones are a popular hair colour, some of us are born with a warmer, rather than a cooler natural hair colour. If this is the case it can be easier for blonde tones to fade to brassy tones.
  2.  Your Hair might be Exposed To Chemicals or The Sun: over summer, hair is exposed to potentially decolouring chemicals. Chlorine is a big cause of discoloration, as is sun exposure. If you’re beach bound this summer, we suggest arming your hair with all the best protection in order to keep brass at bay.

What Can Be Done At Home to Keep Brass At Bay?

The best way to keep brassiness at bay is to buy the right home care products i.e. shampoo, conditioner & masques. Products you can consider include a purple shampoo or conditioner that will help neutralise brassy yellow tones. This means that purple shampoo cancels out brassiness, and brightens blondes. We recommend Olaplex No. 4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo and Neal & Wolf BLONDE Lighten & Brighten Purple Shampoo & Conditioner

Other Top Tips and Picks For Preventing Brassy Hair:

Heat Protector: using heated styling tools can damage colour over time if a heat protector is not used. Heat protectors shield your hair from high temperatures, meaning that the condition of your hair colour is protected, and brass prevented. Be sure to spritz thoroughly before using heated tools in order to keep brass at bay. We recommend Neal & Wolf’s Guard Heat Protection Spray

Sun Damage: in order to prevent the summer months getting to your hair we recommend using haircare to help protect your hair from UV damage, and from discolouring chemicals such as chlorine- two major causes of brassy hair. We love the Macadamia Endless Summer Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil.
