I am a natural brunette and my hair has a tendency to turn a brassy orange very easily. It was a medium brown, and yesterday I dyed it a dark ash brown (ash to tone down the brassiness). Instead of being a darker brown, it looks more like black! Does anyone know how I can get to to lighten it and to keep the reddish tones from coming through? Thanks!

I used to get brassy orange roots and it drove me crazy! I talked to my hair stylist about it, and she told me it actually is mostly likely due to the water I washed my hair with. It makes sense, because when I was at college taking showers in my dorm room my hair seems to be really red. But when I was at home on breaks or whatever, my hair wouldn't be brassy at all.
ANyways, she recommended using this color conditioner to use one or twice a week, and to my surprise it has worked really good. The stuff I got was kind of expensive, but definitely worth the money. Aveda Clover Color Conditioner.
So I would recommend getting some kind of nice color conditioner. That or change your water... but I think that would be a challenge.0
