Why Does My Blonde Hair Turn To Orange Color After Keratin/Color Treatment?

Are you noticing your blonde hair turn into an orange color after you’ve had a keratin treatment? Here’s why it happens and how you can prevent it.

A few weeks after getting a keratin or color treatment, you may notice that your gorgeous blonde hair will start to turn brassy or begin to have a very yellow tint to it. It's common for bleached hair to become a bit lighter, and in most cases, turn from a cooler blonde into orange to yellow especially after getting any sort of treatment done to it. A keratin treatment opens up the hair cuticles to enable amino acids, vitamins, and other sorts of nourishment to penetrate the strands and nourish it. This leaves the hair incredibly smooth, shiny, and frizz-free. It also acts as a straightening treatment for those with curly hair.

The Solution

So, now you’ve had your keratin treatment and you’re starting to notice that your hair is turning a little orange. How do you reverse this or prevent this from happening?

The best way to get rid of the yellow or brassy undertones for bleached blonde hair is to use some purple toning products regularly. You can get all sorts of purple toning products from purple shampoo, purple hair treatments, to purple hair masks.

The way this works is these products deposit “tone” in your hair which will not alter its bleached state and turn it darker or lighter. It’s simply changing the tone of the hair. It does this by depositing purple onto your lightened hair strands - which is the direct opposite of yellow on the color wheel - and counteracts the intense warm tones your hair is starting to get by neutralizing them with a cool purple color. This keeps your hair looking an ashier, natural blonde color as opposed to neon yellow or orange.

Things to Watch Out For

Purple tinted products are a great solution to brassy hair, however, there is a learning curve with them and you need to know exactly how to use them so as to not get any side effects.

For purple shampoo, use it once a week for the first month of getting blonde hair and leave it on for only 5 minutes. Rinse it out thoroughly and condition. After the first month, lessen your use to only once every two weeks.

Purple shampoo can be very intense when left on for too long or if you use it too often. It’s designed to deposit a cooler tone throughout your hair that will neutralize yellows and oranges, but too much of it will actually start turning your hair a little purple. So be careful to use it only as directed.
