Hair toners can be either a demi or semi-permanent hair dye. They’re commonly used after a full professional hair treatment to obtain a more natural colour. Even those with natural colour opt for a toner to add shine and vibrancy to their original colour. Many different brands have their own lines of toners, specifically made with quality ingredients. Consider having a colour chart available so customers can select their ideal shade. When applied, the colour will last them up to 6 weeks.
The durability of the toners depend on the method of application as well as the post-care. Other factors need to be considered too like the length of time the toners left on and the porosity of the hair it’s been applied to. When the toners are first applied, they may sometimes appear a little darker than the desired result. After a few washes, the colour will begin to fade. When hair toners begin to fade from blonde hair, yellow pigment is often visible, leaving clients disappointed a few weeks later. Thankfully, offering clients take-home treatments can allow them to preserve the colour until their next visit.
Great hair doesn’t come easily. It involves hard work, dedication and maintenance. Thankfully it does become a little easier if you have access to the right products. Consider offering your clients colour masks as an additional take-home service. Colour care shampoos and masks can help with colour preservation. Use them every wash to help restore pigments of colour that may have faded when cleansing the hair.
