Whether you’re bleaching your hair at home or looking to preserve and maintain your perfect shade of blonde, one thing you simply can’t do without is a good hair toner!

The ideal thing for creating an even base shade and neutralising pesky brassy tones, our range of hair toner will get your hair for dyeing in a flash.

A Whiter Shade of Pale

If you’ve ever been envious of someone’s stunning platinum blonde locks or found your jaw dropped at the sight of a light and silvery mane, then the chances are the color you loved was entirely down to the clever use of a toner.

Whether you opt for a purple toner to create an ashy effect or to simply achieve a pale blonde or white base shade, you can easily manipulate your color in a single application.

If you’re a hair dyeing novice, you may be thinking to yourself, “What is hair toner and why do I need it?”! With so many confusing terms and factors to wrap your noggin around, it can be a little overwhelming to the uninitiated. Here at Dye My Hair, we live and breathe this sort of thing, so to simplify things, we’ve created a little guide to the things you need to know about hair toner:

  1. Toner is not a dye. We repeat, toner is not a dye. You can’t simply apply a blue or purple toner to your hair and expect it to come out that color! What this product can do is neutralise unwanted yellow or orange tones in the hair to create an even, blonde result. This is especially useful if you’ve had repeated bleach applications result in slightly different shades of blonde or if you’ve got ‘hot roots’. Working on the principal of color theory, purple and blue tones will obliterate brassiness in blonde shades, green or blue can eliminate unwanted redness in darker blonde hair and red will disguise dreaded green tones. Please bear in mind that if your hair isn’t blonde, then toner isn’t the right product for you. If you’re looking to fix unwanted tones in your red, brunette or black hair, then an ammonia free dye or glaze (With the correct color undertones) is a better solution. 
  2. If you have blonde hair, you can switch up the shade simply by using a toner. You can go for a cooler, ashier, warmer or faintly colored tint to add some variety to your look without the need for a new bleach job!
  3. If you’re dead set on remaining bleach blonde, remember that toning is not permanent. You will need to re-tone on a fairly regular basis (Around every 6-8 weeks on average) to maintain the overall tone. 
  4. Toning can dry out the hair, so ensure you wash it as infrequently as you can muster and treat your tresses to the occasional deep conditioning treatment to keep it silky.

Remember, as with all hair dyeing products, you should always use hair toner in a well-ventilated area and closely follow the instructions for use.

Hair Toner: A Hair Dyeing Must Have!

We know a thing or two about hair coloring here at Dye My Hair and it’s no understatement when we say that if you’re going to pre-lighten your hair at home, the most important product in your kit is some good quality toner for hair. If you’re a big fan of wild and crazy hair colors, chances are you’re already relatively familiar with the hair bleaching and subsequent dyeing process, but if you’re a newbie, then think of it this way: If you were painting your nails, you’d use a basecoat, right? Of course you would, ‘cos the basecoat creates an excellent foundation for you to then apply a colored polish atop. Well, toner’s basically a basecoat for your hair! It doesn’t deposit color, but it does help to create a nicely even base shade without any areas of brassiness or uneven tone, which is why it’s the single most important thing you can do to your hair once it’s bleached. Toning is particularly important if you’re planning to rock a pastel shade, as lighter hues of dye are notoriously unforgiving and areas of uneven color are more likely to show through your color.

So, if you’re looking for the best toner for bleached hair, then you’re in the right place! With a range of high-performance toners available, there’s plenty of choice on offer from some of the biggest and best brands in the industry, including:

  • Manic Panic
