To permanently fix a brassy hair shade, a toning color needs to be applied to neutralize the brassiness. The exact shade of the toning color depends on the dominant shade causing the brassy look.

Protecting the hair from the sun, ocean water and pool water helps prevent brassiness from occurring. Shampoos that contain sulfates also cause brassy color.
