Ash Hair Colours

What is Ash Hair Colour?

Ash hair colours are cool-toned, with an undertone of grey, blue and a hint of green and violet that create a hair shade that looks matte, smokey, sleek and soft.

Ash tones can eliminate warm tones such as orange, yellowish or reddish tones that arise in colour treated hair. These unwanted warm tones that appear on the hair are referred to as brassy hair. Brassy hair occurs typically when dark hair undergoes a hair colouring process to transform to platinum or blonde.


How so?

The melanin, eumelanin – brown and black, in dark coloured hair is diluted through oxidation when the hair is bleached. However, when it is not totally rid of as the hair is not breached enough, you will end up with unflattering brassy hair.


Why Ash Hair Colour?

Ash hair colours can give hair tons of dimension and depth, making it look fuller. (Makes you look cooler and trendier as well!)
