A smoothing leave-in conditioner with benefits, this GH Beauty Award-winning Matrix spray also helps instantly cancel out brassy tones in lightened or gray hair. The formula visibly eliminated brassy undertones and brightened color after one use in Beauty Lab assessment. “Added brightness to my hair in such an easy, no-mess way that I was sold after the first application,” GH Beauty, Health & Sustainability Lab Senior Chemist Sabina Wizemann raved. “Plus, it doesn’t weigh hair down.” One tip before you apply: It can stain clothing so be careful when spraying.

2. Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Blonde Anti-Brass Toner
BEST VALUE TONER FOR BLONDE HAIR
- Nourishing formula
- Good value
- Doesn’t work as well on previously processed hair
Don’t let the pricetag fool you — this budget-friendly double-duty Garnier toning treatment packs a big punch thanks to bonus conditioning benefits and (bonus!) smells amazing. “I like that this gives hair cool toning and a deep treatment at the same time with nourishing botanical oils like black currant, olive and avocado,” says GH Beauty Director April Franzino. While this treatment can be used on both color-treated and natural blondes, a few reviewers noted that it doesn’t work as well on previously processed hair.
