Today I’m sharing how to get rid of brassy hair easily and cheap at home.
I’ve been wanting to get blonder hair for quite a while, but it took me a long time to finally get the courage to do it. I’ve never had my hair dyed before this, so it was quite a big change for me. I decided to get a balayage and I think it turned out lovely, I’m really pleased with it.
However, I had the brilliant (*NOT*) idea to get this done right before our beach vacation. What I didn’t know beforehand is that the sun and sea water kinda make dyed blonde hair appear brassy. So when we came back from vacation, I wasn’t that happy with my colour and I decided to look for products I could use at home to fix that.
I stumbled upon plenty of good reviews about the Fanola No Yellow Shampoo and decided to give it a try since it wasn’t really that expensive either.
I have to say that it’s definitely improved the colour of my hair A LOT. I noticed a difference from the first use.
The way I use it is: I lather it up like a regular shampoo, leave it in for 5-10 minutes, rinse and then wash my hair with a regular shampoo. It honestly does wonders to brassy hair. I don’t have to use it every single wash, I would say I use it every 2-3 washes. I would highly recommend this (btw, this is not a sponsored post).
I tried taking some snaps of the before and after using this shampoo, so I hope you can kinda tell how it’s worked for me.
As far as hair care for my blonde hair, my hairstylist recommended this range: the Biolage RAW Color Care shampoo and conditioner. Love them both! I’m not sure how much they help with keeping hair not brassy, since obviously I had that problem, but I do love the way they make my hair feel.
Finally, I love to use this hair mask once in a while and I can definitely tell a difference in how soft my hair feels after using it. It’s called the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque. It’s gorgeous and I think it’s the one product that’s made the biggest difference to the ends of my hair.
The LÓreal Mythic Oil is a beautiful leave-in hair oil that helps make your hair look shiny and nourished. I usually use this after I style my hair (which you can see how I do that in this video if you’re interested). I normally curl my hair, spray it nicely, let the curls cool off and then I rub the oil between my hands and use it on the ends of my hair. And I love the result.
That’s about it as far as my hair care goes at the moment. You might also like these beauty posts.
I cannot recommend enough this Fanola No Yellow shampoo. It is a truly easy and cheap way to get rid of brassy hair at home.
