I usually buy my toners from Sally's but they were out of stock on my particular shade so I went online and found by raving reviews, Uglyduckling toners. Not only did they have a much larger selection of shades to choose from, they are comparably priced for the quality of the product and in larger volume per tube than my usual toners which actually makes them cheaper. I usually buy 2 2.5 oz tubes and bought 2 of the uglyduckling toners, I only used 1 with a 1:1 ratio and had left over in the bottle. I have mid length thick hair. So I was very pleased now I have a 2nd tube for my next toning. Highly recommend.
I have had blonde hair for many years and yes I pull brassy but have always been able to tone it. The past couple of years I have been on meds that make my hair pull brassy orange. That's when I searched around and found this toner. The results are amazing I have to say. Got all the orange out, I mean ALL the orange...I mean no other toner that I have used even came close.
I stripped 10 years worth level 4 brown dye out of my hair and it was literally pumpkin orange and around a level 7, a level 8 on top and a 6 on the ends. I didn't want to just go back dark so I tried a level 7 blue based ash blonde from Sally's which gave me orangey brown ends and greenish brown roots. Lovely. So I ordered this (6.1B) along with the ash blue additive after doing the color consultation on Ugly Ducklings website. This stuff is great. It left such a pretty neutral brown. The ash blue additive perfectly "toned" out any of the brass. Also it made my hair SO soft and bouncy and volumized. The Sally's stuff made my hair feel super dry and crunchy so that alone is reason for me to switch. This stuff is just vastly superior. I used to think hair dye is hair dye it's all the same but I guess not.
