Full Answer

A shampoo for violet-toned hair can serve as a brassy hair toner. The shampoo cancels out the brassy color by depositing surface color onto hair. According to ThePerfumeExpert.com, Black Malva shampoo and conditioner from Aveda is also ideal for removing brassy color from hair. The products take the red out of brown hair. ThePerfumeExpert.com also recommends that blondes whose hair has become brassy should try Caviar Anti-Aging Brightening Blondes shampoo and conditioner to restore a desirable color.

    How do you fix yellow/orange hair?

    A:

    Removing the yellow or orange tones from hair involves washing the hair with a violet-toned shampoo or using a toner; alternatively, lowlights can be added to cool the shades of the hair.
