If your once beautiful, icy blonde shade has taken on an undesired yellow tinge, you’re no doubt struggling with brassy hair. Don’t panic, though!

What Is Brassy Hair?   

Before we get on to how to get rid of brassy hair, let’s start with the basics: what is brassy hair? Brassiness refers to the unwanted warm tones that show up in coloured hair. 

  

All hair colours have a natural brassy undertone (think yellow undertones for light brunettes and blondes, and red and orange undertones for black and dark brown hair). When hair is lightened with bleach, those natural pigments are lifted or diluted.   

  

Over time, however, the natural yellow, orange or red undertones become visible again. The result? Brassy hair! 

What Does Brassy Hair Look Like? 

Brassy hair looks warmer and more yellow than freshly-toned hair. It often looks brassier at the roots. See, for example, the brassy to blonde before and after image below:
