We’ve been toning our hair from Ancient Greek are when people was rub lemon juice or camomile into their hair and wait in the sun to get a lighter colour. Whether it’s because of change in weather, a significant life event, or to use ourselves, people love transforming their hair colour.
With stars like Jennifer Lawrence getting the silver-grey look more accessible, more people than ever before have wanted to their hairdressers with desires of getting many tones lighter. But how you maintain your new colour once your stylist has done their magic? You don’t want to spend that 5-6 hours in the salon chair for nothing.
The solution is toning. Toning is how you’ll maintain your new colour within appointments. We’ve even selected few best toners for your blond hair!
What does toner do to your hair?
The bleaching part of the method isn’t where you make your colour – it’s the toner that provides you with that colour you’ve been lusting after. Toner is the essential part of the colouring method, as it works to both adjust and maintain the warm or cold tones in your wavy locks. Toners can also give shine to your hair and decrease the look of split ends.
Toner is in many different forms. You can’t just step into the supermarket or the hairdressers and buy a standard toner. Tinted shampoos, demi-permanent colours, foams and glosses can all be considered toners, because they work to set the tone in your hair.
Purple and blue toners, like purple shampoos and conditioners you can get from most stores, are all about reducing brassiness. Blue toners fit best for brunettes and red-heads because the blue cut out any sneaky orange tones. Purple toners work best for blondes, keeping your highlights looking fresh by decreasing yellow tints.
