The fastest way to fix yellow tones in your hair
Being a basic brunette for most of my life (besides one whiter-than-blonde mishap when I was sixteen – eeek!), I’ve never had to worry about toning products, violet shampoos and the like. Whenever my brassy-toned besties nattered on about their tresses (for the eleventh time that day), just zoned out.

So when I took the plunge and got balayage, I couldn’t help but wish I’d paid closer attention in those mop meetings. Sure enough, after a month or two, my ashy blonde became more like a blorange, and I knew swift action was needed. I pulled out the Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo that had just crossed my desk, and headed straight for the showers.
I know this may sound silly, but I never realised that these shampoos were quite so violet. My whole bath became a wonderful shade of purple and I had some fun lathering up my strands, all the while secretly hoping the hue was actually doing something to neutralise the brassiness.
After a rinse and a quick towel dry confirmed my hair was back to a brilliant blonde, with no coppery tones in sight. Yippee! Want to know the best part? You only need to use this sparingly, perhaps once a month or whenever your colour starts to look less than luscious, which means it will last you through many a blonde hair trend or two.
