Balayage has gone ginger!

I had red under my hair before having a balayage at the salon. I am aware that red is a little bitch to cover but now all my hair where it was blonde is now really bright ginger. I was away last week and can only assume the sun chlorine and sea water has dramatically faded the toner and now I look like a carrot top! Well I bought some of that violet shampoo stuff today in the hopes of neutralising it a little. Will it help a little does anyone know? Or will i just have to wait for my next appointment?

The shampoo won't work if it's really ginger, but a toner would. You can get one in boots for about a fiver. Leave it on the max amount of time.

No idea but I can tell you that the best violet shampoo is the L'oreal professional one which you can get online and leave it on for at least 20 mins.

For context this is what I'm dealing with...

Do you have a link to the toners at all Salma?

I've used the brunette version of this with success - really cancelled out the red tones. Gets good reviews for blonde hair, but not cheap, obviously!

On the plus side a gingery balayage tends to look nice, it doesn't have the same effect as when your new blonde do goes orange.
