Why is Toning Your Hair Important?

After a visit to the salon, the colour of your hair can change over time due to many factors, such as natural oxidation, exposure to the sun and the excessive use of styling tools.

Toning your hair at home allows you to keep your colour in-between treatments. It helps remove and correct unwanted tones.

How Can You Tone Your Hair At Home?

It is possible – and easy – to maintain and repair your hair colour from the comfort of your own home. This can be done using a good toner specific to your hair needs.
