After freshly dyeing your hair, the first thought that probably crosses your mind is how great it looks. Quickly followed by the dreaded notion that your new hair color could one day fade, or even become brassy. And it turns out, like blondes brown hair gt brassy too. If you’re a brunette, chances are you don’t want any unexpected red or orange tones making their way into your mane. So, how can you fix brown hair that’s turned brassy? We’ve got you covered—just follow the hair care tips below to help prevent brassy brown hair.

Once you’re the proud owner of a new hue, it’s important to make sure that you’re taking care of your color-treated hair properly. Here are our best tips to help prevent unwanted brass:

1. Switch To Products For Colour Treated Hair

It’s true, shampoo and conditioner aren’t one size fits all. Colored hair requires something special to get the job done. We recommend the Redken Colour Extend Magnetic Shampoo or Kadus Color Vibrancy Conditioner 10oz. Free of harsh sulfates that strip the hair, these products will keep your color looking vibrant.

2. Reduce Sun Exposure

While you surely know how important it is to protect your skin from the sun by wearing a broad-spectrum SPF daily, you may not be aware that it’s just as essential to protect your hair color from the sun. That’s right, UV rays can affect your color. If you know that you’re going to be spending a prolonged period of time outside in the sun, make sure to shield your hair by wearing a hat. You can also swap out your standard hair spray for one with a UV filter, like the Macadamia Endless Summer Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil. It’s specially designed for color-treated hair and it’s humidity resistant, so we suggest you pack this in your bag!

3. Step Away From The Heat Tools

Heat from the sun isn’t the only kind that’ll wreak havoc on your hair color. Heat styling with blow dryers, hair straighteners, and curling irons can impact your color, too. Instead of risking your color to heat style your hair, consider this your opportunity to embrace your natural texture —whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, or anywhere in between. There are also tons of beautiful heat-free hairstyles, so don’t be afraid to experiment.

4. Use A Neutral or Ash Hair Dye In Your Formula

If your hair has warm undertones, it’s a good idea to use a ash hair dye to nip brassiness in the bud. Enter the Wella Color Charm Permanent Hair Neutral Colours and Wella Color Charm Permanent Liquid Hair Colour Ash. These two brown hair colors are formulated with blue and green dyes that counteract natural red and copper underlying pigments in dark bases, which can help prevent brass.
