How To Tone Down The Brassy Attitude of Your Hair

According to Shawn La'Yave, hair colorist and stylist at DEX New York, if your blond mane has a brassy attitude, you can tone down the brassiness with a DIY violet shampoo. Her mane recipe to dull your hair's attitude is to add 3 tablespoons of grape juice concentrate to your fave shampoo.

Spending every day for the past couple of weeks swimming in a highly chlorinated pool, my locks got that bad brass attitude, so I thought I would test my culinary talents and whip up the grape juice recipe suggested by Shawn La'Yave.

Although my hair's 'tude was toned down, I smelled like the fermented sediment passed out at the bottom of an oak 60-gallon barrel.
