Your At-Home Brunette Guide To Rich, Non-Brassy Colour


Originally published at:

Brassiness isn’t just for blondes. We brunettes can be cursed with brassy tones in our hair as well. The good news is, you aren’t stuck with it.

As we’re focusing on eradicating any brassiness, I’ve found some at-home colour correctors that’ll give you a ‘cool’ brown. You might be more familiar with the term ‘ashy’. Essentially, this just means we’re toning the hair to remove any red/orange ‘warm’ undertones.
