toning products for blonde hairTrust me, no blonde wants her hair to appear brassy. Whether you’re platinum blonde, baby blonde, butter blonde, dirty blonde, it doesn’t matter…brass is a no-no. So how do you keep your blonde looking fresh and healthy? Incorporate toning products for blonde hair into your weekly routine!

Most toning products contain small amounts of violet extract, lemon extract, and/or bleach that will keep the blonde looking bright and true to the color you desire. But because there isn’t an overwhelming amount of toner, your hair will not be damaged or broken.

Even those who haven’t dyed their hair blonde can experience a brighter, bolder blonde by incorporating toning products for blonde hair into their hair care regimen.
