I need to slightly tone down the brassy colour in my brown hair that has a few soft golden highlights. I love my colour, however—I do not want to be blonde or a redhead! Who makes a great product for brassiness in brown hair that is available from the drugstores or beauty supply stores?
Tony Chaar’s advice:
I believe Goldwell Colorance will be your best bet.
[Editor's note: This is a five minute express toner—or demi-permanent—that only deposits colour. Find it at beauty supply stores.]
Be careful though! Do not use the cool-toned dye on the gold blonde highlights. Only put it on the brassy brown.
