Toner was one of the reasons I was forced to cut my hair into a pixie. I would avoid putting any other color whatsoever on it and switch hair stylists!

Did she tone your hair in the shampoo bowl? Was your hair wet prior to application? How long did she leave it on?

Not a hair professional. I’ve never heard of toner ruining someone’s hair before. I get my hair color touched up every 7 weeks and have all my hair toned. And I sit with the toner on for 20 minutes before shampooing. I do notice a kind of build up in my hair the first few times I wash it, but I wash my hair every 3-4 days. Maybe your hair is frizzy from overwashing? I really hope your hair will be okay! -hugs-

Yes, but it’s usually gone after the third wash. Of course, it could also be a time factor since I don’t washing my hair as often. So, about 10-12 days after having my hair toned it’s pretty much back to normal. Maybe letting a few days pass before washing it again might help? I know that drives some people crazy, but it might help if you can stand it. Also recommend a deep conditioning treatment or a restore and repair treatment. I use Joico’s, you can get it at Ulta. 🙂

taylorp :  Honestly it might damage your hair a tiny bit. They have to use a developer to get toner on, usually volume 20. It’s pretty mild so it’s unlikely that it would damage your hair to the point where you should feel a difference (from my experience anyway!).

Hair always feels a bit weird right after it’s dyed – there’s a lingering smell and texture, but if you give it a few days it should likely feel normal again! Best of luck! I know the pain – I was growing my hair out and went to get a balayge done, just to blend it all together but to leave my roots untouched and the stylist put highlights all over – two years of progress right down the drain! It was a huuuuge bummer!

Ive been a hairstylist for over 15 years, don’t worry, the toner may change the texture of your hair slightly, but it won’t be permanent and it won’t permanently affect your outgrowth. Toner is typically mixed with 5 volume, not 20 so it’s not permanent

I would use a sulphate based shampoo on your “natural” hair (and avoiding the parts that are highlighted) in order to remove the build up of toner – this should get your hair back into nick. I use a sulphate shampoo when my hair has been overtoned and it works a treat! 🙂
