How I fix/avoid brassy tones + hair care products

I have always loved changing my hair colour but once I decided to go blonde I’ve pretty much stuck with it. For the past 2 years I’ve been bleaching my hair. You can imagine my hair is not in the healthy state it was before. I’ve found products & a routine that works great for my hair. I will be sharing my favourite toner, products to maintain the silvery tone, products I’ve been loving for a long time & new products I’ve recently started trying out.

If you have bleached or highlighted hair/dry, frizzy, damaged or brittle hair then hopefully you’d like some of these products.

Firstly,
Toner: (Schwarzkopf Live Colour – Silver Toner)

I saw this product ages ago at my local supermarket & wasn’t sure if I should try it out. I went home to check out reviews and read more about it. I ended up wanting it so I went to the store & it was the only section on the shelf that was constantly empty for about 2 months. Finally I got my hands on it & loved it.
– So easy to use (just apply it after you shampoo & towel dry your hair then leave it in, just like a hair mask)
– It’s enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 and Macadamia Nut Oil so it won’t cause dry hair
– Supper affordable (I got mine for about $3AUD)
(I’ll use this about once a year, only in emergency situations when I REALLY think my hair is super brassy)

Shampoo & Conditioner: (Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes) 
P1010348
It took me AGES to find a purple shampoo that I actually liked. I’ve used many before but never liked the smell of them or they didn’t work well on me, thankfully I found this one. The smell is a lot better than others I’ve tried & when I use it I can see a huge difference so I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a purple shampoo.

Hair Mask: (Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque // Schwarzkopf Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask) 
P1010355
Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque: I’ve used this product for many many years now, I’ve purchased many tubs & I still absolutely love it. It smells amazing & it makes my hair incredibly soft & shiny.
Schwarzkopf Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask: I recently got this a few weeks ago & so far I’m really liking it. When I first used it I didn’t see any difference after my hair was dried but my hair progressively got better. After about an hour of using the mask my hair was noticeably softer & looked a lot healthier (Less dry, frizzy & brittle)

John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir // Garnier Fructis Nutri Repair Instant Detangler

John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir: This is another product I’ve stuck by for a few years now & still love. I use this once I towel dry my hair & it just makes a huge difference for me. It tames the frizziness, helps with the dryness and adds a gorgeous shine.
Garnier Fructis Nutri Repair Instant Detangler: I think this is my 4th bottle this year that I’ve purchased (I use so much of this product it’s crazy, thankfully it’s very affordable). It makes it so so so much easier to brush my hair, which is great so that I don’t tug on the hair too hard causing it to break or fall out. If I don’t brush out my hair well after a shower & I let my hair air dry it comes out really frizzy, dry and just horrible this products makes everything so much easier & just better.

I’ve also written a blog post on a DIY hair mask that works great (Click here to read)

Thanks for reading, hope you guys have had/are having a lovely day. (Also let me know if you guys have any products you’d recommend because I’m down to try new ones)

  1. I wish I saw this a few months back. I needed some help/tips with my hair too. I had colored my hair and for which I bleached it and then it completely got damaged. So I chopped half of my hair. Oh well, now I know where to come to next time I bleach. Thanks for sharing these helpful tips. ❤
