Let me tell you: for us brunettes trying to maintain cool or neutral tones in our blonde locks, the struggle is real.
I have been using Aveda’s Blue Malva Color Conditioner since I transitioned into a level nine neutral blonde in hopes to fight the brassiness that always finds its way back into my hair’s tone. I had been using it once a week in the shower, leaving it on for at least five minutes when possible. To my disappointment, I was finding little to no results when using the Blue Malva this way so I decided to try a different approach.
I applied the conditioner on my hair when it was dry, rather than in the shower. After leaving on my hair for around ten to fifteen minutes, I hopped in the shower and shampooed and conditioned as normal. Not only was I able to successfully eliminate the brassiness where my blonde balayage meets my natural pigmented hair, but I was also able to achieve a beautiful ash tone blonde that will provide more longevity for my overall tone.
Aveda’s Blue Malva Color Conditioner is an absolute must-have for anyone fighting to maintain gorgeous brass-free color between trips to the salon. Not only does it neutralize brassy tones, but it also deep conditions your hair while leaving it lightweight and manageable.
