How to Use Hair Toner to Remove Brassiness

Updated March 23, 2017

Colouring your hair blond can be a tricky task. Leave the product on too long, or not long enough and your may end up with disastrous results. One of the most common mistakes that occur when lightening your hair is that your tresses will turn a brassy shade of orange rather than blond. It is possible to fix your brassy hair with a toner; however, it is not a permanent fix. You will have to add toner to your hair every few months to keep the brassy look away.

Purchase a toner kit from your local beauty supply store. Your toner kit will contain all of the products that you need, such as gloves, toner and application bottle (contents will vary depending on the type of toner you use).

Put on your gloves and apply the toner directly to your hair. You can purchase cream based toners, or liquid toners that must be mixed. Both will work well. If you purchase a liquid toner, mix according to package directions.

Apply the toner directly to dry hair. Only add the toner to the brassy areas of your hair.

Leave the toner on your hair according to package directions. Some toners will be left on for 10 minutes, while others will be left on for 30.

Rinse the toner from your hair. Use warm water and continue to rinse until the water from your hair runs clear. Dry and style your hair as you normally would. You may need to repeat in two months once the toner has washed out completely.
