For those of us who color our hair, often those warm tones seep in, and before you know it, you’re looking orange as the sun, heading back to the chair for a touchup. Turns out there’s a way to slow down the brassiness and hold your color for longer.
In order to prevent your hair color from turning brassy, use low-pH or ammonia-free hair color. But do note, if you’re highlighting or lightening darker brunette hair, you may need to put some extra work in. We recommend staying away from UV rays as much as possible. Wear a hat and using a leave-in sun protection spray will protect hair from the sun, or going to your nearest salon for a glaze (toner). Be sure to use a sulfate-free shampoo or hair products designed for color-treated hair.
