What are the consequences of toning your hair twice in one day
Most of us already know what toner is used for.
It’s a magnificent resource for those that bleach their hair and don’t get a perfect blonde color.
It’s because bleaching is a process in which the chemicals penetrate the cortex of the hair follicles, extracting the melanin.
Melanin is a natural pigment of the har.
And it is responsible for the luminosity or darkness of the natural color of the hair.
In addition to the melanin, there are underlying pigments that bleaching products can’t get out.
That’s when these yellow or orange colors in bleached hair.
The ones that you can neutralize by applying a toner of the opposite color on the color wheel.
- That’s why, to neutralize yellow pieces of hair, you should apply a purple toner
- To neutralize reds, a green toner
- And to neutralize oranges, a blue toner
It seems easy.
And it is.
But it’s also necessary to understand that we are talking about hair that has suffered from the effect of the chemicals of bleaching.
And toner also contains chemicals.If you applied toner and still didn’t get the color that you want, you should wait at least a month to apply the toner again.
Because your hair will be saturated with chemical products.
Because your hair will end up fragile and weak.
And your scalp will probably be sufficiently irritated, and you’ll be on your way to suffering worse injuries like burns or allergic reactions.
Because your poor hair cuticles can’t put up anymore with the chemical attack.
This is the truth.
It doesn’t matter how many girls show up on YouTube explaining with a smile from ear to ear that they toned their hair twice in the same day and nothing bad happened.
Don’t believe them.
Because when the camera turns off, the tears start which produce a long road without being able to turn back.
How many things are people willing to do for one more “Like”, for one more follower?
They pay a high price for one more gram of popularity.
And really, it isn’t worth it.
What do you lose if you wait a month to apply a new toner?
In the end, you will have to use a hat or a handkerchief.
What do you gain if you wait a month to apply a new toner?
Because in the meantime, you’ll do a series of things to strengthen your hair so that it doesn’t get more damaged.
With this, you will prevent your ends from opening even more.
And that your hair gets damaged and breaks.
Now, let’s go to preparing your hair to tone it for the second time in a month.
How to prepare your hair to tone it for a second time
What’s important so that the application of the second toner is successful consists in evening out the layers of porosity of the hair.
Because if the levels aren’t equal, the toner won’t be absorbed evenly, and pieces of hair can end up different colors.
For this, the secret is deep conditioning.
What is the best moisturizer?
Exactly.I recommend that every other day, you do a coconut oil mask on your hair and let it sit for an hour.
Coconut oil is an absolutely natural ingredient.
Before buying it, check that the label specifies “100% organic.”
It has a solid consistency, so you should heat it up in a double boiler.
Once it’s a more liquid consistency, you can apply it on your hair.
From the roots to the ends and distributing it uniformly.
Once your whole hair is covered with the oil, wrap your hair in a shower cap and enjoy your favorite series on Netflix while the magic of the coconut oil acts on your hair.
After an hour, rinse your hair and don’t use the hairdryer.
The night before applying the toner, do a deep moisturizing treatment, leaving the coconut oil on your hair all night.
When you wake up the next morning, you will be ready to rinse your hair and apply the toner.
I also recommend that you use sulfate-free shampoo during these days.
How to apply the toner a second time after 30 days
- Mix one-part toner with two parts 20 volume developer
- Apply the toner carefully and in a uniform way over your whole hair
- Let it sit for five minutes
- Rinse the toner without using shampoo
- Apply a good leave-in conditioner
Do you want to know my best advice?
If your objective is to go to blonde and the color you have ended up with after toning your hair for the first time is not a disaster, there is another alternative.
Even though the effect of the purple shampoo will fade with washing, it doesn’t contain any aggressive ingredients.
And you can always use it again every four or five days.
Now, you know how much time it’s best to wait between the first toner application and the second.
Remember that we are talking about delicate bleaching processes and if there is any doubt, it’s always best to consult a professional.
