It is therefore very important to choose the perfect products to repair your hair after the summer.

Salt from the sea, chlorine or exposure to strong sunlight are some of the reasons why our hair suffers from frizziness, dull color or dehydration. And now is the ideal time to devote time to its care with the best products to return to its splendor. Treatments for blonde or brunette hair, innovative and natural shampoos, serums and conditioners are complements that our hair may need, discover with us some perfect products to repair hair after the summer.

Balmain Hair Couture: Spray Ash Toner

In 2018, the brand launched Ash Toner, one of the best-selling products of Balmain Hair Couture, which not only prevents hair color from becoming strident due to chlorine or the sun, but also illuminates it.


Ash Toner, perfects and maintains the tone of blond hair

The color corrector, containing violet nuances, neutralizes yellowish tones to repair all types of blondes; natural, highlighted or dyed.

“As a leave-in spray, its effect is much more powerful than that of any specific purple shampoo because its pigments remain in the hair fiber,” explains Omar El Gharbawy, Master Trainer at Balmain Hair Couture.

The product is very easy to use, just spray 20 cm from wet or dry hair after each wash. A quick, light and moisturizing formula that does not require rinsing, which will gradually allow you to achieve a brighter and shinier tone. Although Ash Toner is designed for blond hair, the product is also suitable for white and even brown hair, preventing the latter from turning red or orange.

The Balmain firm is a reference in care and beauty products, and they also have fragrances such as Balmain Hair Perfume, which not only impregnates the scent, but also nourishes, repairs and protects the hair.
