Do you want to refresh your hair color in a minimally invasive way and at the same time add shine and strengthen them? Toning will allow you to achieve this without a visit to the hairdresser!
Hairtoning is a method of changing hair color using shading products. Thanks to the vitamins and minerals in the cosmetics intended for this treatment, hair not only gains a clearer color, but improves its condition. Toning can work well if you don’t want to use colouring, which often damages and dries the hair, or as a solution when you need to refresh the color between colourings.
Especially blondes. Blonde hair is prone to yellowing and the right toners can cool the color and eliminate the yellow undertone. What’s more, blonde hair shows its colored highlights very well. For brown or red hair the pigments wash out quickly and toning improves the color and removes warm undertones. If you have very dark or black hair the color effect will be less noticeable but you will still notice nourishment and softening
You already know what toning is, so the question is, what products can you use to do it? Start by choosing a toner color. If you want to tone down the orange hue, choose a blue toner, a yellow toner will neutralize the purple hue, and if your goal is to remove the green hue, go for a red one. Now all that remains is to choose the type of product. You can choose from:
As you can see, there are many products for toning. Most of them are easily available and simple to use. You just have to decide what effect you want. The color you have on your hair is important. If your aim is to warm up blonde hair opt for a caramel or copper coloured toner or mask; if you want to cool it down opt for a coloured shampoo or rinse. If you have brown or red hair that has faded a bit, a well-chosen color mask will do the trick, while if you want a stronger result you can opt for a toning hair dye. You can also use toning for gray hair. To give your hair a silvery shimmer, use shampoos for blonde hair. You can also use a mask to cool down the shade.
