How to Tone Your Hair

Does your hair need a pick me up? During summertime, our hair can change quickly. This can be due to your hair lightening from the sun, changing colors from pool chemicals, or heat and humidity. If your hair is frizzy and looks dull, you might need a toner. If you loved your hair when you got it done but it's changed a little, toning your hair is a great solution that isn’t as harsh as dying it. There are a few different ways to go about toning your hair. Below are some toning ideas that can revitalize your look.

Shampoo, Conditioner, and Product

If your hair needs a pick-me-up, try a toning shampoo, conditioner, or styling product meant for colored hair. Drops for your regular shampoo and conditioner have been trending on tik tok. Depending on your hair color, you can decide if a red, brown, purple, grey, or other color suits your hair. Add a couple of drops and it will subtly change your hair tone. If you had dyed your hair blonde, brown, red, or other colors, there are also pre-made shampoos and conditioners that remove tones you do not want. For instance, blonde shampoo has a purple or blue color that will eliminate brassy coloring and brighten your blonde. If you have brunette or red hair, there are shampoos with darker pigment to help you maintain your hair color as well.

Hair Lighteners

Hair lighteners in the summer can help you maintain your blonde hair or add highlights. Usually, hair lighteners are just a spritz used sparingly that is activated by the sun to lighten your hair. You don't have to dye your hair to enhance it. Beware- using too much of this product can be drying to your hair so do not use it too often or use too much.


Hair gloss is another way to treat colored hair. During the summer your hair might become frizzy, dry, and dull. Gloss is a newer way to help your hair out. There are different hues to pick from that subtly enhance the tone of your hair. You can find hair gloss at the store and it is usually applied for a few minutes in the shower and rinsed out. After that, you can repeat as needed without damaging your hair.

Protect Your Hair

One of the main reasons people choose to tone their hair is because their hair needs a boost. If you dye your hair regularly, you should consult with a hair professional because ultimately, they can tell what your hair needs. If your hair needs a pick-me-up, a toner is a great option because it is not as harsh as other options you might consider.
