    Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Brass Banisher:

    I have natural blonde, grey and colored hair I really dislike how brassy my hair can sometimes appear.
    Sometimes it looks almost red. I use Colorist Secrets Brass Banisher about once a month. I leave it on about 15 minutes. The results are a gorgeous blonde. Not too ashy at all. Just right and very natural looking. I get compliments on the color all the time.

      Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Brass Banisher:

      I have about a level 4-5 hair naturally.it ya currently heavily highlighted and my ends have some left over color from when I was covering a few greys with all over darker color. So, after a few weeks despite toning it starts to look dingy orange even etc. I used this today and I am amazed at how awesome the results were. This basically retoned and brightened my hair allowing me to go a few more weeks before rehighlighting my hair. It's not drastic but exactly what I needed the product to do. I only applied it to highlited parts I did apply to the roots and I left it on for about 20 min. The only thing I would change was leaving it on about 10 min longer but this being the first time I used it just wanted to be cautious. Overall great product!

        I had highlights that were too brassy and I wanted to tone it down. This product didn't do a thing. I would of gotten more toning by using just color without the developer

            My son had dark hair and bleached it. He had a lot of red tones. I was hoping this product would help take away some of the brassy tones. I didn't see much of a difference.

                After coloring my hair, I found the shade to be a little too brassy so, after two weeks, I found the brass banisher and bought it without reading any reviews. I used the product as instructed and after drying my hair, IT WAS EXACTLY THE SAME IN EVERY WAY. It didn't remove ANY brassiness! The product does in fact say that it can be used on color-treated hair. A complete waste of money and time.

                  I have been dying my hair Platinum blonde for years. I always follow up with a brass remover. Today I dyed my hair Platinum and as always there was a SLIGHT orangey tint. After using this product my ENTIRE HEAD TURNED ORANGE!! It wasn't even that bad before using this! Please choose literally any other brass remover than this one.

                      Comments about L'Oréal Colorist Secrets Brass Banisher:

                      I have naturally bright coppery red hair. Often I tend to bleach my hair because hey its fun to be blonde. But of course this awful orange tint likes to rear its nasty little head. And for the last five years when this happens I always turn to L'Oreal brass banisher. It works every time for me. And for the people who it didn't work for you have to remember every color you have dyed your hair that you currently have obviously plays a factor in how anything is going to work. If you have dyed your hair red, then bleached it then expect it to turn out wonderful without some extra work your asking a lot. There are thing like Cleansing treatments and color ooops to help get your hair ready for the fun life of a blonde. And if your not sure what to do search search search for someone who has gone through the same problem as you online and follow there lead it may help you a lot.

                          Hi Bells, Brass Banisher will neutralize brassy tones on bleached, highlighted, colored, and natural hair. It may tone down any brassiness in your natural haircolor, but it will not lighten or darken your natural dark blonde. We hope this helps!

                          Hi Sherry, if you are experiencing gold tones after using 6A, that means that this shade is a bit too light for you. The further you go from your natural color, the more warm tones that you will expose. You could try Brass Banisher if there are only some warm tones here and there that you would like to neutralize. If it is way too brassy all over, we would suggest going back to a 5A. We hope this helps!
