How To Tone Your Brassy Yellow Hair At Home?

Hi everyone, as some of you might know, I recently change my hair from dark brown to half grey and despite everyone’s warnings that it would be a lot of work to maintain grey hair, I went and get it anyways.

Before                                                                                         After

This whole transition took me a total of 5 hours sitting on my hair stylist’s hair and yes, my bump hurt. But now that the colour is done, I get a lot of questions from you all asking me how to maintain this colour and if it is expensive to maintain. My answer is that it is absolutely not expensive at all to maintain your grey hair and unlike that other people told you, it does not take a lot of time.

Now, today, I would like to show you how I maintain my grey hair at home while making sure that my hair is as healthy as possible with only a few tools and products. I will also put down the links to SHOP.COM where you can find all of the products I use. Make sure you create an account before you purchase so I know that you are referred from my blog and make sure you create special offers from SHOP.COM because you are my followers 🙂

What you will need:

  1. Manic Panic Vegan Semi Permanent Hair Colour Cream in Ultra Violet: ($16)


I specifically love this line because their products are vegan and it doesn’t smell bad like the regular hair dye. It does take a little longer and you have to apply it more often but because the product is vegan, it does not damage your hair as much as the regular chemical ones.

2. Royal Spa  Tri Protein Plus Deep Conditioner ($16)

-!Royal Spa reg Tri Protein Plus Deep Conditioner--559053496

What you’ll do with the conditioner is to mix it with the Manic Panic and apply it on your hair. The purple will neutralize the brassy yellow. I highly recommend this conditioner because of its amazing ingredients. It can last you up to 6 months as the bottle is quite huge. The formula is specifically designed to nurture and recover dry, damaged and chemical treated hair. In just 60 seconds, Tri-Protein Plus Conditioner utilizes the different molecular weights of rice, corn and whole wheat that will penetrate deep within the hair shaft, producing benefits like no singular protein conditioner can. This conditioner is enriched with 19 amino acids, 14 vitamins essential to hair nutrition, botanical extracts to relax stressed hair, and a special anti-static formula that fights fly-away hair and the frizzies. It is perfect for hair that has been through a process of bleaching and colouring. 

So now that you mix these two products together, the toning mixture should look something like this:


Apply this mixture on your hair and leave it on for at least 30 minutes.

And that is it! Now you re brassy yellow hair will turn into a very light blonde to almost grey with a little of purple mermaid touch.

Also, if you ever think of having grey or bright blonde, make sure you have some purple shampoo ready because the regular shampoo will wash off your colour very quickly.
