Many of you were wanting to know a little bit more about the concoction I toned Debra’s hair with.
After a little lightening I was rinsing her out and saw it was a little brassy, which normally would freak me out, but now I have a secret weapon.
I went through my fair share of brassiness earlier this summer and tried every toner under the sun, this one was easily my favorite because it makes your hair incredibly shiny, it’s very effective at cutting the orange/yellow PLUS it’s really cheap:
The Toning Vinegar rinse.
2 1/2 Cups Vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Purple Food Coloring (I use this neon version cause I want it to be vibrant) You can use blue & red food coloring to make purple as well but make sure you use more blue than red. If your purple food coloring is redish you can add blue to it as well. You want a violet purple color.
*Or if you are a redhead and want to bring the punch back into your color use red food coloring!
Before using the rinse test it on a small piece of hair and adjust the amount of food coloring depending on how it looks on the strand If you have more brassiness you may need more color or vise versa.The recipe could vary a fair amount with more porous hair types needing much less coloring.
After your conditioning take your rinse and pour it down your hair. Massage it in to evenly distribute. Rinse with water. (While your hair is still wet it might smell a bit like vinegar but once it dries the scent totally disappears)
