Banish Brassiness with Clairol Shimmer Lights Hair Care

I decided a few weeks ago I would color my own hair. I figured I do root touch ups in between salon visits so why do I just save a few bucks and color my hair myself.  I picked up some box hair color for platinum blonde and made sure to get an ash based color so it didn’t go brassy.

Applied it per the directions and let it sit for the prescribed time. Hopped in the shower rinsed, conditioned and jumped out to find I had the most awful yellow brassy color. Imagine a pumpkin and a banana having a baby… that was the color of the top 4 inches of my hair. I quickly remembered why I leave platinum color to the professionals and went about a repair plan.

After googling hair SOS tips from every source available I headed to Sally Beauty Supply. Picked up a Wella Ash Toner and some Shimmer Lights Shampoo. After the toning treatment my yellow was mostly gone but I still had some brassy spots. In came the rich purple Clairol Shimmer Lights shampoo. I started applying every 3rd day instead of my regular shampoo and within a week the brassiness was gone and I was left with a beautiful pale ash blonde I had originally been shooting for. You can see from the pic above how thick, rich and deeply purple this shampoo is.

Love how great the Shimmer Lights worked to tone down the remaining brassiness. With every use I was amazed how much brassiness was toned down and I love the pale platinum color it left my hair.  For maintenance of my color I just apply Shimmer Lights Shampoo once a week. I like to let it sit about 5-7 minutes then I rinse and bye bye brassiness. I didn’t pick up the conditioner but think I will go grab it I love the shampoo so much.
