Watch Your Tone!

What is a Toner & Why Are They So Important? Ask The Hair Colour Experts at Colour My Life LONDON hair salon in Lavender Hill, Clapham

Have you ever seen someone walking around with brassy yellow hair that looks like it came from a home dye kit? The problem is that a toner wasn’t used after bleaching their hair. Toner is an amazing little product that neutralises brassy yellow tones on bleached hair, leaving you with shiny and more natural looking hair colour.

At Colour My Life LONDON hair salon in Lavender Hill, Clapham, we use the very highest quality toners to ensure you always have a beautiful hair colour every time you leave our salon.

What Do Toners Do?

hair colour and toners at colour my life hair salonToners work to alter the undertone of your hair colour, but they will not lift the shade. Toners are designed to be applied to bleached or naturally blonde hair and will not work on darker shades of hair.

Toner can help you manipulate the shade of your blonde hair to make it look ashy or more cool.  
Toners can be used all over your hair, or just in certain parts where you want to change the shade. For example, it can be used at the roots to blend your hair colour, or used to cool down highlights. 

Your Colour My Life LONDON colour expert can even use toner to add fashion colours including pink, blue or grey tones.

What Kind of Toner Should I Use?

Once you have had your hair lightened at our Clapham hair salon, your Goldwell colour expert will use an in-salon toner. Our toners are of the best quality and are designed to minimise damage to your coloured hair. We would also recommend that you use OLAPLEX at this stage, which strengthen and repair damaged hair during the colouring process. 

Using purple or silver shampoo is a popular home toning service, it is more gentle than in-salon toners. The great thing about using these coloured shampoos is that you can wash your hair with it 2-3 times per week to preserve the tone of your blonde hair. 

How Do I Maintain My Toner In-between Salon Visits?

hair colour and toners at colour my life hair salonDepending on your hair washing routine, you may have to visit Colour My Life LONDON hair salon for a toner from 2-8 weeks after your hair colour service. You should not wash your hair directly after toning because the colour will slip out.

The less frequently you wash your hair, the longer your hair colour will stay looking fresh. We would advise not to wash your hair every day as it strips out your natural oils and dries out your hair, which is not advisable when you have been bleaching your tresses!

Don’t Forget To Condition!

Any time you lighten or use chemicals on your hair, it’s a good idea to show your locks some love too. Use a deep conditioner, or apply a weekly hair mask at home, and book in for a regular deep moisture treatment at Colour My Life LONDON hair salon in Lavender Hill, Clapham.
