XANDRA Reveals Her Secret to Eliminating Brassy Blonde Tones

The DJ swears by these two products for color-treated hair.

While highlighting your hair—for the summer or year around—may seem like a good idea at the start, the maintenance required over time can make it feel more painful than pleasant. But with the right products, blonde highlights don’t have to be such an ordeal to keep up.

With the help of DJ XANDRA and her blonde hair product recommendations, keeping your highlights looking fresh and perfectly cool—not brassy—just got a little bit easier. The influencer has two products that she uses on a weekly basis to tone her dyed hair and ensure that it maintains its professionally done appearance year-round.

($20) into her conditioner.

Using the product duo “really helps get all of those brassy, nasty tones out,” XANDRA said in a recent TikTok. “Especially in the summer [when] I’m going in [and] out of pools... my hair turns green.” The duo is certainly helpful when it comes to preventing discoloration from chlorine, but even without that added harmful element, the products are ideal for regular weekly toning, as well.

Created specifically with blonde, silver and white hair in mind, this shampoo enhances your color and eliminates brassy, warm tones.

Like the shampoo, Paul Mitchell’s toning drops are meant for blonde, white and silver colored hair. In combination with your go-to shampoo (like that above), these concentrated drops tone your dyed hair and eliminate any brassy appearance.
