Most Helpful Positive Review Does exactly what it says
My stylist recommended this product, so I decided to give it a try. I have platinum highlights on dark blonde hair which tends to go brassy. I use it to touch up the tone on my highlights, and it works very well. It removes all the brassiness and restores my highlights to their full platinum perfection. In addition, my tips tend to be very dry both due to the processing and because I have curly hair. Even after rinsing the mask from my hair, my hair feels much softer and silkier. And once dry, the difference is amazing! My hair is left soft and shiny, with no frizz. There's no greasy residue left behind (I have oily roots). I use the whole Brass Off system (shampoo, conditioner, mask, and leave-in conditioner) together once every two weeks. I find I really don't need it more often than that. The one thing I've found that I'm not crazy about is that it can be difficult to rinse completely out of your hair - especially if you have a lot of hair, like I do. The first couple of times I used it, I thought I'd gotten it all out, only to see blue streaks in the mirror and have to jump back in the shower to finish rinsing - so make sure you rinse THOROUGHLY. Otherwise, it does exactly what it says it does, and smells good, too.
Most Helpful Critical Review I wouldn't buy this again
This product smells good , other than that it's a waste of money. It didn't do anything , I love matrix so silver but this was a disaster. It's very messy and gets everywhere . You need to either stand in the shower or tape plastic in your bathroom like dexter . It goes on and turns icy blue looks like it's doing something , but once I washed it out , which took ten minutes nothing changed . I did however have a tint of light blue on my platinum highlights . I bought this to simmer down my roots after going blonde (I'm brunette) my roots are the same . I wouldn't waste your money !!

might have been my mistake but i left it on the 5 mins its suggested and now my hair is a smokey purple color. so disappointed it took me so long to get to the blonde i had.

I tried this as instructed and also on dry hair but it didn't work.
Keeps my blonde looking icyyyyy💙
Kristin from illinois
I use this about every 4 days and leave it on for 13 minutes after I shampoo. It gets the yellow out and makes my hair look great! Yeah, it is messy but all you need to do is wash your hands really good after and make sure you're not slinging it around in the shower!
Blue is a Game Changer!!!
Kendall from CT
WOW. I am honestly so impressed by this product. I have been growing out blonde highlights for over a year, and letting my natural brown come in. But, over the summer I used Sun Bum lightening spray which made my hair kinda orange-y and brassy. I was using purple shampoo but it wasn't doing the trick. I found this hair mask and wow what a difference! I bet using it another time will reduce it even more! It darkened my hair a little too which is what I wanted to achieve. I will definitely keep buying this and would try the other Brass Off products too.
Would definitely buy again.

So I bleached my hair because I was bored, during the pandemic. Me, being a total beginner, missed some sections, so I would go back and bleach them but they came out orange. I tried other blue shampoos but nothing happened. I saw a single use blue hair mask from Matrix at Ulta and purchased, hoping it would help. The mask is BLUE. It scared me. Wear gloves! I thought my hair would be blue after waiting five minutes but it washed out. It worked really well on the ends of my hair, but not the top. Probably my fault because I was so intimidated by the intense color of the hair mask that I didn't apply the mask there. Can't wait to get it again to finish it up!

Brass be gone
Sari from North Carolina
From the first use this product took off all the brassiness in my hair. I use it weekly and my hair looks like I had just had it colored. Love it.
Great with Brass
Becca from Redlands CA
For Background, I have dark brown hair that is balayaged into a light brown. I have a neutral complexion and refer cool tones to my hair. I used this for ten minutes, avoiding my scalp. I normally dread my purple/blue shampoo days because they dry my hair out so much but this actually made my hair feel soft. I Have really dry ends and this has helped them. This totally de-brassed my hair and I loved it. Important to realize that this helps with toning, it is NOT a toner. So if you have super brassy hair due to a bad dye job or just bad upkeep on your hair, this will not cure it. I would honestly say if this doesn't get rid of your brass then you need to visit your stylist.. or maybe get a new one :)

If you're not far off from the color you desire then I'm sure it would be more successful, however, I was working from orange hair so I only noticed a very small tone change. Not enough to call it a day. Needed to transition to other products.
Great product. Works well. Will buy again.

I thought it would help remove brassy oranginess from my color. But it didn't.
Qas a waste of my money.
If you're a blonde you NEED this mask!
Swhit from Portsmouth, NH
I absolutely love this hair mask! I love blue/purple shampoo as I prefer my blonde tone to look "cooler" and I want to take away as much brass as possible. I use a purple shampoo, and then mix a quarter size amount of the Total Results Mask with my conditioner 2-3 times a week. It COMPLETELY changes the color of your hair- in the best way possible!
Makes the hair feel soft
Beachbum from Ohio
Made your hair feel so soft in just one use.
Will buy forever and plan to STOCK UP
S from Albuquerque
I use this almost daily. A natural medium and dark blonde now turning white, I have some areas that I have to highlight due to fading pigment that goes yellow. This is THE BEST. And, I've used them all. No idea why I keep reading "messy." Wash your hands off after you apply it, clean your sink, spray your shower. This is far better than what Matrix markets for blondes. I wouldn't be without it.

Wish I took a before and after photo!!! I recently had my hair done, post covid 19 lockdowns. I had a grown out blonde balayage on dark brown hair. We brought the blonde up towards my part to cover some re growth. Once I got home I realized the first 3 inches of my hair were VERY very gold, while the rest was a nice blonde. This appeared to be only over my virgin regrowth- first time this has happened. I knew I wouldn't be able to get in since salons are super booked but I also didnt want to wait a month beofre for my pre wedding touch up. I puchased this and it was GREAT. I had to do it twice, both times I left on for 10 minutes. I would say my hair in 75-80% better!!!! Miracle worker. I think I will use this treatment every so often to keep my blonde ashy! Side note- it can make a mess so be careful and wear gloves.
Great product for faux blondes!
Rebecca from Wisconsin, USA
I recently got a balayage and my hair dresser recommended this product. I use it every other week for 10 minutes and it keeps my blonde bright and beautiful! It has also been a life saver during this pandemic. I'm on month 5 without any touch up and it still looks brand new!
Clausita from Illinois
I usually use the purple shampoo once a week so, I thought that maybe this treatment wasn't going to make a big difference in my hair but after using and leaving it only 5 min the results were really nice! You can notice shiny lights, removes any yellow areas and leaves your hair so soft! People noticed it too! I will use it once a month and will leave it for 10 min as recommended. A little pricey but great purchase!!
Shopurr from Pittsburgh
Ok so obviously bc of the virus hair salons haven't been open & Im months overdue on getting my roots, highlights & toner done. I have natural dirty blonde hair with heavy baby lights that Id typically get done every 4-5 months, Im on month 6-7 now & my hair is so brassy. I did this mask for 20 mins on damp hair (just the lengths) before my shower & used the matching shampoo & conditioner to follow.. let me tell you this livened up my hair, it looks freshly done minus the obvious roots problem. It took me from brass to icy cool toned blonde. I love this stuff. The so silver line is good, but the brass off line is better. I think bc this is so dark violet compared to purple, its more intense. Now if your hair isn't as brassy as mine gets, this could leave a slight blue/violet tinge to your hair, which washes out & is temporary. But I love a slight blue/purple tint, its better than an orange/yellow brass tint any day. This is the best cure for brassy blonde chemically treated hair.
Works in one use!!
Gigi from Waco, TX
I had super bad luck with any purple shampoo/mask but this took out all the brass/weird tones in one use and made my hair so soft!!
Sarah from Ohio
I dont know how this gets such great reviews. I have medium brown hair with blonde highlights. My brown and blonde get very brassy. Tried this mask multiple ways until I used up the entire container and never once saw a difference in my hair. Literally did nothing, not even help soften it. Def wont be re-buying.
Works so well!!
Madisson from Meadville, Pa
I have been trying to find a product for years that will completely get out the brassiness in my hair. Finally, I found this recommendation while scrolling through tik tok (lol i know). My hair pulls brassiness so bad after coloring it lighter and I am so happy that I finally found something that makes me happy with my hair. Although my first mistake was using the purple shampoo on my hair rather than the blue. You can use this mask as many times as you want - I normally wash my hair twice and then put the mask in and let it set for 15 minutes, then I jump back in the shower and condition my hair. Definitely worth the money!!
Love love love!
TM from Idaho Falls ID
Pretty much my whole life I've had natural blonde hair, but once I started dying it platinum blonde/white I needed a toner/purple shampoo! This I love! It is still affordable & works really good! Since I have white hair I leave it on for about 10-15 min & it turns my hair silver for a short while!
I love this product!!!
Josie from New Jersey
I've been coloring my hair for quite a bit now. I have naturally dark hair and I've been getting balayage for a while now. A month ago I got cool/ash blond balayage and my hairdresser recommended this mask. My process- I washed my hair and let it dry pretty decently but it was still slightly damp. Then I left this mask on for 15 minutes (yes I know it says 5-10 minutes on the bottle but I read someone's review on this product and they said to leave on for 15 minutes). The results-my hair looks like how it was right after I got it done, if not better honestly. This mask is a lifesaver. I originally purchased the individual mask packs, but after this, I purchased a whole bottle. I can't wait to use this more (probably once a month or so).
Marketed towards brunettes but blondes need this!!
Emily from San Diego, CA
I initially bought a packette of this and didn't realize it was for brunettes. I loved it so much that I bought the full size! I'm a bleach blonde whose hair easily pulls warm/brassy. I mix this with another intensely hydrating mask w/ a 1:1 ratio, leave it for 5-10 min, and rinse out.
