Well I'm not sure, I have been blonde in the past. Up until 4 years ago I had always been blonde, recently I started to miss it and decided to experiment a bit.
My hair was really dark and it had had a lot of red dye on it in the past. The past few months I've just been using a normal brown dye to try and tone down the red but once the brown faded the red tint was still there.
So this weekend I used a lightening kit and tried to get blonde hair. The first go on saturday was a disaster and my hair was so orange! The next day I went off to buy more lightener and a light ash blonde dye to counteract the orange and ran off to my mum's house in a woolly hat covering up all the hair. Mum's friend tried to fix it for me, the ends where all the colour build up is, are so stubborn and won't lighten enough but once I put the Ash blonde on it looks a lot better.
It's still not perfect so I'm not going to post pictures but I'd just like some advice from anyone who's done this on toners to take away the orangeness/yellowness? Aveda has been reccomended but I don't want to pay that much money. In a few weeks I will be going to the hairdresser and asking them to make it look more natural, in the mean time I'm using lots of conditioning treatments and laying off the straighteners to limit the damage to it after all the bleach. At the moment its still in good condition and feels healthy but I know if I went to a salon and told them what I'd done they'd worry about putting more peroxide on if my hair was in a bad way.
So reccomend me some affordable toners, and I need make up tips! When I was blonde before I only used to wear foundation, bronzer and mascara. I'm really struggling to make it look normal, as after all the years of being brunette I've gotten used to the way I do my make up. I've also had to slap some false tan on as the blonde is really washing me out...good job I go on holiday in 4 weeks!
