While experimenting with hair color is fun and always exciting in the moment, maintaining a salon-like dye job can be a challenge. And since most of us have no access to visit professional hairstylists in the foreseeable future, it’s become essential to find an at-home solution to keeping our hair color looking vibrant and fresh.
Enter: Toner. While hair toners don’t add or deposit dye onto your strands, it helps to keep the color balanced and neutralized in-between salon visits. Toning essentially eliminates brass and even boosts your already existing color in just minutes. Even better, you don’t have to be a pro to know how to use toners.
