Best Blonde Hair Toners from Shrine Drop It Toner with Moroccanoil Purple Shampoo

M

Maintaining perfectly blonde hair can be a pain. Not only are regular root touch-ups a nightmare (and very expensive!), but your desired tone is easily lost if you don’t take care of it.

Going swimming with freshly bleached hair is a recipe for disaster and can turn your hair green, while not using the right products can lead to brassy and yellow tones. After shelling out a few hundred pounds to get that perfect creamy champagne blonde shade, it would be an absolute travesty to see it less than 10 out of 10.

Toning products have been an absolute lifesaver for blonde bombshells everywhere, and purple-hued products are popping up everywhere. From tinted hair primers and violet mousses to blue shampoo and classic toner bottles, there’s a product for every shade of blonde.

Mariano Ruiz, Founder of SheWolf Hair Care explains, “A toner will allow you to increase or decrease the intensity of a color, as well as get rid of the brassiness of blonde hair. It is applied as a semi-permanent color and can last four to six weeks.

“After completing a bleaching process, the toner is great for nourishing the hair and helping the color last longer.

“For blonde hair, there are three different toner families. First, there are the warm, golden tones that use words like “champagne” in the product. Second, you have ash tones, which are very clean blondes, often like a Nordic blonde and if necessary on the silver side. The last family is creamy blonde, which is a combination of warm tones and ashy tones.

Here are some of the best toning products on the market for blonde hair.

Moroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Violet Shampoo

Moroccan oil

This shampoo from Moroccanoil not only smells amazing, but transforms your hair in seconds, and is specially designed for the unique needs of blonde, highlighted and even gray hair.

Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo is a sulfate-, phosphate-, and paraben-free tone-correcting shampoo that gently cleanses hair, while depositing purple pigments to counteract yellow and orange hues.

The shampoo features patented ArganID technology, with positively charged microparticles that are attracted to the negatively charged hair fiber, infusing the antioxidant powers of argan oil deep into the cortex of your strands, meaning your hair benefit from more than just a color boost.

Super Gloss Glaze

If you’re looking for conditioning shine for your hair at a great price, Glaze offers a range of different conditioning color formulas, enriched with GlaziPlex.

Powered by nourishing Babassu Oil, the unique glossifying conditioners are derived from glycerin and fatty acids alongside a pearlescent biodegradable silicone alternative, giving you mirror-like shine.

There are three blonde-specific shades in the range, Beach Blonde, Pearl Blonde and Honey Blonde, all of which give hair a semi-permanent tone without the use of harsh chemicals.

Glaze uses no ammonia, no parabens, and no sulfates, so you don’t have to worry about what you’re putting in your hair.

Fudge Professional Clean Blonde Pre-Toning Primer

This primer from Fudge Professional is a spray-on pre-toning treatment that will help maximize results and protect against brassiness. It features CopperCLEANSE Technology, which helps keep colored hair an even shade while brightening blonde undertones.

A completely unique product, the primer is applied before entering the shower. You spray it generously on dry hair, from root to tip, leave it on for at least two minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual. The fast-acting formula helps remove dull minerals from hair in less than two minutes. Your locks are then perfectly prepared for the toning shampoo and other treatments.

OSMO Super Silver No Yellow Shampoo

OSMO

A legend in the game, OSMO Super Silver No Yellow Shampoo has been around for quite some time and has often been hailed as one of the best.

The intensely hydrating, sulfate-free treatment is infused with super violet pigments, which will neutralize yellow tones in hair.

Virtue ColorKick Debrading Shampoo

Virtue

If you’re looking for an all-natural luxury shampoo, look no further because ColorKick De-Brassing Shampoo uses 100% natural dye to tone your hair.

The product contains plant-derived humectants, which detangle and hydrate hair, plus Virtue’s Alpha Keratin 60ku plus an all-natural blend of harsh botanical and lavender extracts that will gently neutralize brassiness.

At £40 it’s on the higher end of the price scale, but it’s a touch of luxury that should be welcome in every bathroom and smells utterly divine. An added benefit is that it also protects your hair from UV rays and pollution.
