 Apart from using it on bleached hair, Wella T10 is ideal for color-treated hair if it starts to look orange.  Why do those oranges appear?


Because the hair dye starts to fade due to sun rays or sulfate shampoos.

Why Wella’s T10 toner neutralizes orange hair

with brush

Neutralization is widely used in salons after coloring jobs, whether it’s bleaching, balayage, highlighting, or dyeing.



In most of those cases, unwanted tones can turn the hair color uneven and messy.

Every color has an opposite one that cancels it out. That also applies to the neutralization process:



 If you want to neutralize your orange hair, you should use a toner with blue pigments. .


Wella T10 has blue and violet pigments that cover a wide range of oranges.

Now that you know that Wella T10 will solve those nasty orange tones, let’s see what you need.


How to apply Wella T10 on orange hair step by step

Before we dive into the toner application, I’d like to make a couple of recommendations. Take them or leave them, but the success of orange color removal may depend on it.



If you don’t remove the bleach well, the toner won’t work. Also, you may damage the hair fiber. Don’t forget that the toner is applied with peroxide.


 I advice you to allow at least 48 hours after bleaching. That way, you can check the final color to neutralize.  Usually, the hair becomes even lighter 2 or 3 washes after bleaching.


  • If you dyed your hair, and the color is too orange, wait at least 2 or 3 washes. That’s how long it takes for the dye pigments to settle in.

Once you’re sure that you want to neutralize orange, you can apply Wella t10. What will you need?


Materials to apply the toner

  • Wella T10.
  • 20-volume developer
  • Gloves
  • Plastic container
  • Hair tweezers
  • Hair dye brush
  • Moisturizing conditioner


Step by step

1- Hair preparation

Wet your hair and detangle it. Then, separate it into 4 sections, from forehead to nape and from ear to ear, holding each section with a hair clip.


2- Preparation of the mixture

In the plastic container, place 2 parts 20-volume developer with 1 part Wella T10 and mix well to integrate the elements. Don’t forget to wear gloves because the toner stains the skin.


3- Toner application

different sizes and shapes

Release one of the sections of your hair. Apply the toner from the roots to the ends with a dye brush. Repeat the procedure on each section.

You have to cover the entire surface of the hair fiber. Leave the toner on for a maximum of 30 minutes. Check your color every 5 minutes.


 You have to check the color every fifteen minutes to control the neutralization. If you exceed the time, your hair may be stained with some blue highlights. .


4- Rinsing the toner

Finally, rinse your hair with plenty of warm water until it runs crystal clear.

Don’t use shampoo! Just apply a small amount of moisturizing conditioner with Keratin, silk extracts, or coconut oil so that your hair recovers the moisture it lost during the chemical processes.


How often to apply the T10 toner

To keep unwanted orange tones away, apply Wella T10 toner every 4 weeks or use a blue toning shampoo.



Wella T10 is a great tool to remove orange tones from either bleached hair or light brown, dark blonde, and blonde colored hair.

Remember to control the exposure times of the product correctly to avoid over pigmentation.
