Can stain hair blue
My hair went blue
After using this product for the first time my hair went blue after I bleached it two times. I was utterly disappointed after paying $13 for a product I put in three days before my wedding day. Now I have to show up at my wedding with blue hair, I can’t go to a hairdresser because of Covid, now everyone on zoom was gonna see me with blue hair at my wedding. The colours in my wedding aren’t even blue, it’s pink and white. #WeddingRuined
Bring back the old formula!
I hate the new formula! I can’t express my utter disappointment at the change. I’ve used this silver toner for as long as I can remember and this is not a good change. This is blue based and actually threw some green in my hair. I know how toners work and this toner was great because it was gentle enough to cover yellow tones, however it’s. it strong enough to cover orange tones properly and left my hair patchy. I’ve tried the new formula more than once.
I couldn’t wait to strip it out of my hair with head and shoulders and bi-carb.
Bring back the old formula!

They changed the formula
This was my favorite toner I had ever come across. They have now created an anti-breaking formula and it doesn't do anything! Yellow has not faded at all. Very unhappy.

Favorite blue based toner!
It lasts about 4-5 washes for me.
I loved the end result and it's my favorite toner by far!
Hair colour can stain if not washed off right away! Make sure it doesn't come in contact with clothes either as it can stain them!
Toner has a pleasant smell too, it's not horrid like some I use to use.
By far my favorite blue based toner and by go to.
Great for orange tones or darker yellows! I saw alot of comments complaining about it turning hair blue, or being bad and not being the old formula. If anyone is wondering why, it's because it's a blue ...

New blue toner not old silver toner
What have you done !! You have replace a perfect silver toner with a revolting blue version. I’m not wanting to look like a 90 yr old pensioner. This has left a ugly blue tinge in my hair. Why change perfection with garbage. I’m a hairdresser so your product is useless. Bring back your silver toner !!
Nordic Blonde Anti Yellow Toner
I purchased this as I was needing a toner to help remove the yellow tones after highlighting my hair.... the product said it was suitable for blonde, lightened or highlighted hair.... my hair went bright blue instantly, I washed it off within seconds & then I had to reshampoo my hair again to get the rest of it out!!! A terrible product... save your money... unless you do want blue hair!! :(

I wont be buying it anymore as they changed it and its horrid
I have used the original for many years. I needed a new one and my husband bought the latest version from coles. I saw that it has been changed to "New" so I guessed it was just a better version. It was perfect before. It was bright blue and turned my hair blue. I had to go back to the shower and wash it twice to get it out of my hair. I had a small amount of the old one again and used it - perfect again. Not buying this any longer.

Bring old formula back
The old formula (purple liquid) was EXCELLENT!! You could leave it in highly bleached hair briefly & it would be toned perfectly. I would leave it on longer for the underside/darker blond sections of my hair & it was soooo good.
The new blue formula does not work at all!! I was using the old formula for as long as I can remember (over 10 years). I used to recommend it to every blonde.
Thumbs down for me for the NEW FORMULA.

Stains hair blue! Awful product!
Why did schwartzkopf change its blonde toner formula? The old formula was soooo good. Now my hair comes out blue, even if I only leave it in for less than a minute. I then have to shampoo it out and my hair is back to being brassy. This is a waste of money, I will never buy it again.

Leaves hair blue, not toned
I have naturally light brown ash hair, I've been getting highlights for the past 3 years. I was buying this in the old packaging and it worked so well. This new one stained my highlights light blue and that was after only leaving it on for 2-3 minutes. Now I can't seem to get rid of the bluish tint, hopefully it will come out at the hairdressers. Really terrible product, not sure why Schwarzkopf would ruin their own product like this.

I didnt buy this product to get blue hair
Having used your toner for a number of years, am very disappointed that you have altered it. Instead of toning down the brassiness and having a lovely mauve tone, it is now bright blue. I will not be purchasing this any more.

New formula TOO blue - Makes hair blue/grey instead of Toning
. Used on bleached hair at roots.
New Formula/Colour change has ruined this product. What used to be a fantastic product now has too much BLUE & leaves hair a dull grey, instead of the lovely silver blonde that the original formula used to.
The original violet Base was perfect for countering brassy yellow tones (I used to buy this product every few months and was a staple in my hair care regime....not anymore!) I Would use the original violet packaged product in the shower every few days at my roots to keep yellow brass under control. So SO ea...

Affordable and satisfying!
Didn’t find it effective after the first use so I left it on for much longer the next time (45-50 mins). I use it every 2 weeks if possible and love the ashy colour of my hair the first few days after using the toner. Would recommend using disposable gloves as hands can go slightly purple. For an affordable toner it’s definitely worth trying! Try use regularly thought as it will fade quickly. I wash my hair every second day, sometimes every day because it gets greasy and sweaty from going to work and the gym.

Great product, removes brassy tones completely!
I wash my hair every 2 to 3 days, for me this product lasts up to 3-5 weeks. I was happy with the end result but wish it would last a bit longer.
Purchased in June 2019 for $8.00.
I wish this worked.
Used as per directions (given it multiple chances over the years using different brands to go blonde) and it barely takes any of the brassiness out. I wish I knew which product was best for me tbh.

Unsure how to feel
I have just used this product loving the colour but my hair seems to have snapped after using this product. I would love to continue using it but not if my hair is going to break from it.

I am super super happy with this product, like at first i read some reviews and everyone seemed to love it but i was very scared to try it cos i didnt want to damage my hair so i picked it up from the nearest woolies and omg i tried it and it turned my hair from a nasty duck yellow to a very nice bright grey silver colour which i love. Only thing thats the problem is that its so hard to evenly spread and i bought one 150 ml bottle for my medium thick hair and i still have alot of brassy tones but now it looks like highlights amazing love it and left it on for 35 minutes to 40 minutes on my almost to dry damp hair
Must have for in between colours
Great product, was skeptical as I have a graveyard full of 'blonde products' and find a lot claim to do more than they do. For an inexpensive toner - it does the job. I was starting to dull and yellow inbetween colours and decided to try. Brightened it up, cooled it to a nice bright but ashy blonde. Need to condition after it though as it's a bit drying. Great fresh up when colour is dull.
Did absolutely nothing
My hair is blonde with very yellow tones. It should have worked perfectly but has made no difference whatsoever. Followed instructions exactly so hoped for at least a slight violet effect.
love this product really works! leave on for longer for better results! no damage and leaves a gorgeous shine and colour in which i desire! Thank you so much Schwarzkopf!
Questions & Answers
I have coloured my - white at front/grey back and underneath hair - with a warm blonde colour and it has turned out very brassy and golden in colour. I don't like it at all and am considering using Schwarzkppf Nordic Blonde cream. I don't want to have blue hair and don't know how long to leave it on.
Seems that lots have ended up with blue hair! Yikes! Not for me...
Where can I buy this product? I’ve used it before and loved it. Now can’t find it
Not sure if they have taken it off the shelves. The old toner was great, the new one was/is rubbish, turns your hair blue. Why change a formula when it was correct. Anyway I have seen it at chemist warehouse and Coles but I refuse to buy it anymore unless they change it back.
Yeah the new one is horrible! I bought it to try it but not impressed. Thanks for getting back to me
Hi just wondering if the Nordic blonde toner has been disconnected!! I have tried the new one but it send my hair blue. I Bleach my hair and it sent me completely blue.
They’ve stopped selling it! My hair turned blue as well. Won’t ever buy it again (unless they bring back their old formula).
