How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a great way to get the brassy color out of your hair.  Not only does it have other added benefits for your hair, but it will also get your blonde locks back to normal!!  I personally like to add some sort of oil to my vinegar mix.  It doesn’t matter what kind of oil, it could be almond oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, etc.  It will add a little extra shine and moisture to your hair.

  1. You will need a ½ cup of apple cider vinegar and water.
  2. Make sure you use this concoction after you shampoo your hair. Leave it in your hair for at least 10 minutes.
  3. After your 10 minutes is up, you rinse without using shampoo.

Do not worry the smell of the vinegar will go away once your hair is dry.  Use this mixture for a couple of weeks or until you get the results you desire.  You can also add a little bit of almond oil to the mixture if you would like.  It will help keep your hair soft and smooth.  You can use regular white vinegar if you do not have the apple cider vinegar.

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Purple Shampoo and Vinegar

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Purple Shampoo and Vinegar

Another way to lighten and get rid of the brassy hair is to use purple shampoo and then use the apple cider vinegar or white vinegar.  The apple cider vinegar is better for your hair, but white vinegar will yield the same results. The purple shampoo is used to help reduce brassy hair as well.  So, if you use both products you will get to your end result a little faster.   I would make sure to do a test strip on the underside of your hair first before you decide to do your whole head.  You can never be too sure what is going to happen to your hair.  If you don’t like it or something just is not right after you have tried it, then nobody will be able to see it.  Including yourself!

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Vinegar and Food Coloring

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Vinegar and Food Coloring

Another way to get rid of the brassy hair with vinegar is to use food coloring first, then use the vinegar.   You will need to have food coloring, shampoo, and vinegar.

  1. First, you will want to determine if your hair is more on the red side or the orange side.
  2. Next, you will need to get red and blue food coloring. If your hair is more on the red side you will want to add an extra drop of blue food coloring.  You will add the food coloring to your shampoo bottle.  Or make a separate bottle just for this.
  3. Then, you will shampoo your hair with the mixture you just made, let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse well, and see what your hair looks like it.  If it is still on the red side, I would one more drop of blue food coloring and shampoo again.

How To Get Rid of Brassy Hair With Vinegar in a Spray Bottle
