What is hair toner?
A hair toner is a life-changing product that helps any user to correct or personalise their colour. It’s used to add natural or more visible tones after a professional colour treatment and, as a result, enhances the overall lusciousness of your hair. In order for a toner to work, your barnet has to be pre-lighted or coloured first, so it’s most often used on various shades of blonde, but can be beneficial for brunettes and redheads too. Silver or purple shampoos are excellent solutions when it comes to maintaining bright and cool colours between salon appointments, and are certainly worth investing in if multi-tonal highlights are your preference.
Like most domestic dyes and home box kits, there is no one-shade-suits-all toner. It can be used all over your hair, or in certain places, to create different effects within you locks, for an even more personalised result. Warmer tones include buttermilk, peachy, or vanilla hues, while cooler tones include champagne, silver, and ash. Pastel shades, such as lilac, pink, and rose gold, are also extremely popular.
How can I make my hair toner last longer?
There are many factors that may cause your toner to fade (or turn brassy if coloured blonde). These include: hard water, sun exposure, air pollution, and chlorine (or other pool chemicals). During the summer, consider investing in a hat, to limit your hair’s contact with harmful UV rays. It may also be worth taking several preventative steps when heat styling your coloured hair, as this can also cause your precious tresses to weaken. Don’t forget to use protectants like argan oil alongside your straighteners or curling tongs, as they can help to nourish and illuminate your natural hair’s thickness.
Hair toner FAQs
What hair toner should I use?
This depends on the results you desire. If you want to get an exact colour for your hair, it may be a bit complicated, but not impossible. For red hair, use green toner; for orange, use blue toner; and for yellow, use a purple toner.
Does toner damage hair?
If used correctly, toner shouldn't damage your hair. However, over-using toner can cause product buildup and put unnecessary strain on your stands, so always follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
Can I get highlights with a toner?
If you want to get highlights, a toner may not be enough. While it can be used to create a multi-layered effect, you'll most likely need to bleach your hair to achieve proper highlights. Toners are usually used post-bleaching/colouring to give your hair a finished, glossy look.
What happens if I leave toner on my hair for too long?
If you leave toner on for too long, the colour payoff may be different to what you had hoped for. Try not to leave the toner to sit for longer than 5 minutes, as it will make your hair of a different colour. But if you do want a drastic change, you can let it sit for 30 to 45 minutes.
