Toner: A Bleached Blonde's Best Friend

Most of us know that to dye our hair blonde, we have to use bleach to lift out the color. Once you bleach your hair, though, there are a surprising number of possible results, and they may not all be what you want.

Have you tried to bleach your hair but ended up with hair that was too brassy or more orange than blonde? Personally, I prefer my hair to be a cool, silvery blonde. That’s an almost impossible color to achieve with just bleach.

That’s where toner comes in. If your hair is a masterpiece and bleach is your paintbrush, toners are the small brushes that allow you to add details and shading. In short, the right toner will let you achieve the exact shade of blonde you want for your hair. Keep in mind, however, that toner won't get your hair lighter if you're going from dark, only bleach will!

How to Remove Brassiness From Hair With Toner and Developer

This article will teach you how to use toner and developer to tone down the brassy, yellow, and orange tints in your bleached hair in order to get a more neutral blonde. There are several steps to this process.

  1. Bleach your hair (I am assuming you have done this). Your hair will need to be lifted to somewhere between orange and lemon in order for the toners I have listed below to work for you.
  2. Buy the right developer.
  3. Buy the right toner.
  4. Mix them.
  5. Apply them to your hair.

This article will walk you through this process using my personal experience experimenting with toners and advice from my hairstylist. Let's begin!

Where Can I Buy Toner and Developer?

Wella hair care products have become my go-to products for maintaining my blonde hair. You can readily purchase all the Wella Hair Care products from any large online retailers such as Amazon or eBay. You can also purchase them from specialty beauty supply stores like Sally’s Beauty Supplies either in person or online. I went to Sally’s to compare prices and they are around the same for both sites.

Pricing: The only price variation you will find if you search for “Wella toners” or developers is the lower the price, the higher the shipping charge. Select “free shipping” specifically if you’re on eBay.

Which Developer Should I Use?

10 Volume
20 Volume
30 & 40 Volumes
Use this developer with a darker toner or to correct mild brassiness.
Use this developer with light toners and/or more orange-tinted hair.
Do not use these developers at home!

Use Only 10 or 20 Volume Developer

Developer can be purchased in either 10, 20, 30 or 40 volume. As I mentioned in my last post, I am not a professional stylist, but when my hairdresser warned me that I could fry my hair and end up with clumps of it in my hand if I used 30 or above, you can bet I was going to heed her advice!

  • 10 volume: This developer is better if you plan to deposit a darker shade of toner into your hair. If you’re adding an ash brown or dark blonde toner, I recommend this one. It also works well if you are using a light toner but are only trying to soften mild brassiness instead of combatting orange tints.
  • 20 volume: This developer has its own lightening effect. If you have bleached and you are ready to tone with a very light beige, honey, or ash blonde toner, the 10 volume developer might not do the job. 20 volume developer is a little stronger, suitable for use with your lighter blonde toners.

Lighter Toners are Not Necessarily More Effective

I started my hair toning adventure using a very light toner, which was a mistake for me because going from very dark brown to blonde, I still had a lot of orange color in my hair so it was just plain ineffective. Actually, my hair was orange, so this will save you a load of time if you’re currently orange. You can’t avoid the orange if you’re dark-haired. Dark hair bleaches in these stages: dark brown/black, red, orange, yellow, and finally lemon. Light toner will not cover very orange hair.

My Favorite Wella Hair Toners

Number
Name
Color Your Hair Should Be Before Using
Use
T-18
White Lady (Toner)
Pale hair
For residual brassiness on already pale hair.
T-11
Lightest Beige Blonde (Toner)
Lemon
On "lemon" bleached hair for a sandy blonde color.
7A/672
Medium Smokey Ash (Color)
Yellow or orange
On yellow or orange hair for a dark, smoky blonde.
7AA/632
Medium Ash Blonde (Color)
Yellow or slightly orange
On yellow or slightly orange hair for a lighter ash blonde look.
Although these are all technically toners, the 7A/672 and 7AA/632 are listed under "Color Charm" on the website. All of these will help remove gold and red tones from hair except the T-11.

Details of Each Toner

What they're good for, and how I used them.

Wella T-18 White Lady

My first toner was the Wella Color Charm Toner T-18 “White Lady.” Again, my hair was still orange so this toner didn’t work well in my hair. If you’re quite blonde already, this will work great. It’s an ash color, so use this to remove any residual brassiness and to maintain a light shade of blonde.

Wella T-11 Lightest Beige Blonde

The next Wella Toner I used was T-11, which is a light beige blonde. It has a slightly gold finish—not too gold to make your hair brassy though. If your hair is already bleached to a lemon color and you want a sandy beach-blonde look, this should work wonderfully for you. Again, my hair was not lifted to the lemon color yet, so this was not effective on my hair and merely left it a different shade of brass.

This toner does not have the ashy effect, so it will not neutralize warmer yellow/gold tones. For a cooler tone and to neutralize the sandy effect, look for a toner with the word “Ash” or “Ashe” in the description.

Wella Medium Smokey Ash 7A/672

Next I opted for a slightly different route, and bought Medium Smokey Ash 7A/672 (color). This changed the color of my hair into a beautiful ashen color and, of course, smoky blonde. I loved this color because white blonde isn’t my thing and not what I was ultimately aiming for. It was darker than I wanted though, so I dropped the "smokey" label and graduated to plain medium ash blonde.

Wella Medium Ash Blonde 7AA/632

This Medium Ash Blonde 7AA/632 color is also lovely. It's the same color as the medium smokey ash, only a much lighter shade. It has such a pretty finish: not stark white, not brown, but perfectly in between. I stayed with this color until the next time I needed a touch up, then I let it fade out with several washes and finally got to where I am now: ready to try a mix of T-18 and T-11 together. This will let me keep use the ash tones to keep the brassiness at bay, but give me a more summery look with the "sandy" finish of the lightest beige blonde.


This is the current color of my hair.

The above photo shows exactly what color my hair is today. I do love it, and I hope my hair-color journey provided a useful guide for you.

By using the medium smokey ash and then the medium ash blonde colors first, I suppose I could claim victory at obtaining my desired blonde shade by sheer accident. However, the word accident is probably not a good choice to use when we are discussing bleaching and toning our hair. Suffice it to say my hair color now is perfect for me. It looks natural and not bleached at all, and I don’t have to lighten my brows. I just love it!

Be Patient!

The process of getting your hair the desired color will take time! You can’t bleach hair from very dark to pale lemon in one sitting. If you attempt to do this you will damage it beyond repair. It takes multiple bleaching sessions spaced out over time to lift enough color to get to this point.

Applying the Toner

With that said, here is a brief overview of the toner process. The video below offers an excellent step-by-step tutorial. There will also be detailed instructions on the box.

  1. Optional but recommended: do a strand test. Apply the toner to a small section of hair first, following the same instructions you would normally. Once you see how this turns out, you can decide if it's the right color for you and if you are letting it settle for the right amount of time.
  2. Wash your hair and make sure to thoroughly rinse out any shampoo or conditioner.
  3. Mix your developer with your toner. Use a ratio of 2:1 with your toner: two equal parts of developer to every one part of toner. I use a whole bottle of toner each time. If you're mixing the T-18 and T-11, you use a 1:1 ratio of those.
  4. Apply the toner to your hair in sections, making sure not to miss any desired area. Always start on the hair shaft, then apply to the bottom of the shaft, then apply to the roots last. The heat from your head and the extended time on your roots can make you look more gray instead of blonde. I seriously do not need any more gray!
  5. Once you've applied the toner thoroughly to your hair, let it settle for 30 minutes.
  6. Rinse it out! No need to shampoo, but you can condition.

I use toners about every 5-6 weeks to touch up my color.

FAQ's

How Can I Remove Gold and Red Tones from Only Some Pieces of My Hair

Purple shampoo just might be your best friend. In general, I use either purple shampoo or purple conditioner 2 times a week to keep brassiness at bay. It helps lengthen time between toning sessions.

However, if you're dealing with brassiness after getting some sort of effect and just have parts of your hair that are orange, purple shampoo should be your first try.

  • Try using it a couple of times.
  • Put it on damp, unwashed hair, rub it through evenly, leave it on 7-10 minutes (no longer), then wash it out and condition.
  • Wait two or three days, and then use it again.

To use it for color maintenance, damp your hair once or twice per week, apply and leave it for 30 minutes or so, then rinse and condition.

If the reds or oranges still aren't gone after that, you might want to try something else.

I used 7AA (or Another Product) and It Came Out Way Too Dark. Is the Blonde Gone?

Usually the toners, and some colors like 7AA tend to fade after washing your hair a couple of times. If you're in a hurry, though, you can wash your hair a few times with dishwashing soap, or use my soap cap recipe for bleaching at home.

Here's my “no-bleach soap cap" recipe:

  • 6 capfuls of 20 Volume Developer
  • 2 capfuls of 3% peroxide
  • 2 capfuls of baking soda
  • 6 capfuls of shampoo

Some people have said this is technically bleach, but I still think it's gentler than commercial bleach. It works very fast, so check after 5-7 minutes and incrementally after that. Keep a swatch of unbleached, wet hair close so you can compare.

My Hair Is Already Blonde and I Want to Make My Highlights Stand Out More

There's a product called Chi—actually it will say ChiIonic on the box. It comes in a tube like a large toothpaste tube. It's highlift for hair that is already blonde, so if you click and shop for "Chi Highlift Color 11A", it'll be your magic wand for those highlights!

Use 20 volume developer, and squeeze out one part color to two parts developer. Leave it for 15 minutes, then rinse it off, shampoo, then condition.

Please be aware that this is, as I said, only for use on hair that is already blonde, so if you were to put it on your brown hair, it will potentially create orange. Apply it carefully to your highlights, either wish a brush or freehand. Do not use this all over your head, unless your whole head color is blonde, with lighter lights.

How Do I Reduce Damage to My Bleached Hair?

Here's what I do:

  • As far as conditioning, I don't spend a bomb on conditioner at all, and I often use a favorite inexpensive conditioner, but I find that massaging some through my hair and leaving it for an hour or two before I rinse, lightly shampooing, and then conditioning again really helps a lot.
  • Use the cheaper brand for the deep conditioning and use your favorite for after shampooing. Also, make sure your hair is absolutely saturated before applying shampoo, or you can use way too much, and many brands of shampoo can be very drying if you use too much.
  • You can also try good old mayo and leave on before washing. Coconut oil is also a good choice, which you can wrap or wear a cap and leave on overnight.
  • Obviously you should avoid heat as much as possible with dryers or flat irons. Ironically, however, I've found that spritzing my very damp hair with some of that heat protector spray, or Argan oil, does good things for it, even though I'm not using heat.
  • When you're in the shower and have conditioner on your hair, 'finger comb' your hair, and don't moosh it dry roughly with a towel when you get out. Just gently squeeze the excess water out with your towel, and again, comb with your fingers. You'd be amazed how much your hair will thank you for avoiding a brush. Some are terribly rough on hair, plus if you have waves, the perfect way to get them to stay in place is by finger combing and air drying!

I Toned My Hair and It Turned Green! How Do I Get Rid of It?

Sometimes hair can turn green if it's still too brown when an ash color is used. Try lightening a bit more, and then use a pale ash brown color, not toner. Use 20 volume developer.

You could also try Epsom salts if your hair is very damaged and you don't want to do anything too drastic.

  • Try 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts, mix with the same amount of baking soda, and then add about a cup of shampoo, or enough to cover your whole head. Perhaps a half cup would be sufficient. Allow it to sit for 20 minutes, then check it.
  • When I used this method years ago, I covered my head with plastic wrap to keep the warmth in, and eventually left it on for about 45 minutes. I had a pretty bad pink incident going on at that time (toner catastrophe o.O). In any case, it took out loads of color.
  • Afterwards use a teeny bit of shampoo, rinse very thoroughly, and then condition afterwards.

Difference Between 10 Volume and 20 Volume Developers

The difference between the 10 volume and the 20 volume developers are like this:

  • 10 volume will not light your hair shade or color anymore than it already is. If you're adding a darker color, like that brown you used, this will help it to deposit to your hair.
  • 20 volume developer has 6% peroxide, and will lighten one to two shades, usually. Therefore, if you're adding highlights, it's best to use the 20 volume.

Have you ever dyed your own hair blonde and had a weird outcome?

      if your hair goes green, you need to add gold to it, so some color with gold in it will help. Also these these soap caps colors work well with darker hair also. Wella had a recipe in the 1970's for it, I still use it for myself , since it usually does not give total 100% coverage so looks pretty natural, plus its easy and cheap.

      1/2 bottle Color Charm

      Double parts 20 Volume Peroxide

      1/2 ounce shampoo

      shake up and work into hair , stays on 10 minutes, and rinse out.

      Hi Kerry, came across your page and found your hair articles informative. I've had some probs with Wella color/toners but maybe just not using the correct ones for my hair. My hair is currently around a level 7?, from using Wella 10 C Icy Blonde and T 28 most recently. (My natural color is dark brown (blonde as kid) but has been bleached alot over the years, and tends to have goldish tones from bleaching.) The 10C and T28 have left my hair a muddy, dark champagne-ish color...not what I want! I'd like to get to a nice ash blonde (not too silvery/grey or white). I'm not sure if I need to bleach with Quick Blue first OR use one of the PALER ash wella colors instead? Then not sure what color toner I'd need. I've used wella toners besides the T28 without achieving what I want. I think I used satin blonde and frosty ash once but again....not quite right! I'd appreciate any tips you can give me!!! Thanks and I look forward to reading more of your articles.

      I had a bad visit to the salon two days ago, left in tears with orange red and blonde ends with very dark roots. I’m the hair dresser I saw was trying to tone my hair with warm colors even though I repeatedly told her I didn’t want anything warm. There was a lack of listening. But anyways. My hair is now this terrible shade of BRASS!

      I want to try toning with a dark ash blonde or light brown but don’t know if should be concerned with my roots lifting? I don’t want to add to the orange... I was assuming I should use 20 developer but maybe I should stick with 10?

      Hi Chrissy, the best and most economical way I would suggest is to use shampoo especially for blonde hair first. It will leave your blonde hair lovely and bright, and not give your darker hair a brassy hue.

      You can see my recommendation for the better kind to use in my other article. Just click my name to see my profile page, all my articles are right there :)

      Hi B, you could try a product called Chi Ionics. I have mentioned it somewhere in one of my articles, offhand though, I don't remember which one of the those I made reference to this product though. Its a high lift color for already blonde hair. It works tp lighten and refresh blonde hair, so no need to lighten before using it. Aside from this, I recommend purple shampoo and the T-11 with 20 volume developer. But, you still might need to pre-lighten a tad if that's unsuccessful. Fewer steps with the Chi :)

      Thank you for your time and your questions, please share me with your friends!

      Kind regards,

      Hi there, I was wondering if you could possibly correct what I'm doing wrong...

      I have naturally dirty blonde hair so my roots are a medium brown. I've used 20 developer twice on my roots, with a week span for recovery, and it won't lift enough that the T18 toner will show correctly. However the hair directly adjacent to the roots, which has only been bleached once, takes the toner no problem to the T18 shade.

      I'm very slow to do color maintenance, so only the roots and adjacent couple inches usually get bleached once every 4-6 months or more..

      I was thinking, natural unprocessed root hair should be easily lifted with bleach when its not even that dark to begin with?

      Thanks for any insight!

      hey so my hair has always been dirty blonde. I used some box dye of a really light blonde and a platinum blonde but my hair has just turned out only a tad bit lighter, as well as very brassy and pretty copper yellow gold and it just makes my hair look really greasy all the time. I'm trying to get it to be a very light ashy blonde and not this dirty blonde look i've been stuck with my whole life. what would you suggest I use? I don't want to hurt my hair but I can't afford to go to the salon. I'm ok buying slightly more expensive toners or dye just anything cheaper than the salon. my hair is pretty long. any help would be greatly appreciated

      Lady Highlander,

      Hi! I also have a pixie at the moment as my hair is growing back after having chemo, and I have gotten used to the short hair. I think I love it - the jury is still out lol. It's a little amusing though - I never thought of myself as a pixie hair girl, ever. My stylist told me the other day, that I will need to come back to keep the back stacked a little as it grows, otherwise just cutting the length could result in a mullet. I'm not ready to go back that far yet! Having said that, you could get a friend to help you razor the ends for the first one or two times, just be mindful of how your shorter layers are catching up.

      Good luck! Merry Christmas, 'Love Kerry XXx ^_^

      Hi Katie Burkhardt , good morning. Oh that's great You will find if you use purple shampoo, you will get much more mileage out of your money spent at the salon. Your color will stay lovely, and you won't need to reprocess your hair nearly as often to get or keep that pretty color you love.

      Merry Christmas!

      Hi Mary, you could try that, but are you blonde already?If you're only just lifting to 9A from a darker color, you might make sure you achieve that shade first then tone as an extra step to get what you need.

      Have a happy day!

      I’m the opposite, I want a light golden blonde color, not the ash shade. I tried T18 & hated it. But to each his own. After dyeing my hair various red shades for 20 years I got tired of it. I had worn so many red shades, from auburn to fire engine red and because my hair was strawberry blonde when I started & as such, lighter than what I dyed it, maintenance was a 3-4 week affair if I didn’t want light roots peeping through, never mind he gray showing as well...

      So I read up, bough supplies & got started. I used color remover, then bleached all over & ended with T18 wella toner. Wasn’t a huge fan of it. Waited a month, did a soap cap, but mine consisted of bleach powder, 20 volume & clarifying shampoo. This lifted my hair another 1 & 1/2 levels. After this I did the toner, a mix of 1/2 bottle of WellA T10, soft blonde and WellA T11, lightest beige blonde with 20 volume. This turned out to be the magic bullet for me. The perfect balance of pale blonde with a golden finish. It’s amazing. Anyone looking for this type of blonde shade I cannot recommend this blend highly enough! You need to have your hair lightened to a level 9 for it to look the best though.

      Thank you for this article. I tried to get a dark ash blonde balayage (from brunette) at the salon and the first time it was too golden and so I went back to my stylist to fix and then is was way too brassy...so for the last two weeks I've just hated my hair. Then luckily I found your article and followed your advice and steps and now it's a lovely dark ash blonde!! I may try to go a little lighter in a week or two but it's already much closer to what I originally wanted! Thanks again!!

      How to get the perfect Silver/Gray. After so many tries and errors I have finally found the perfect formula for that Gray/Silver effect. After highlighting hair use T-18 (White Lady) and add two capfuls of Wella 050 (Cooling Violet) with 20 Volume Developer. Also, perfect for toning down orange and brassines. Once a week I use Framesi Color Lover shampoo to keep the color alive. You’ll love your hair if you’re into the gray hair

      My hair is already an ash blonde colour but the yellow tones start to come out. What would be the best shade to go for? Would any beige shades actually work on it?

      Hi Kee - that's a difficult question to answer because there are many shades of green and many ways for hair to be green in the first place. If you used dye, for instance, the green is different to the green you would get from chlorinated water. You could do a strand test, and keep a note of the timing to see how long it takes to alter the color.

      Love, Kerry xx

      Hi Allison90, sorry to take so long to respond to your question, I had some health issues and was off for a while. You could try washing your hair with some dish soap and a bottle of water, or two for rinsing. Do this once in a while, and then use a toner with 20 volume developer when you can afford it.

      You can get toner and a smaller bottle of developer on Amazon, shipped, for around $20. I hope this helps you! You can also check over here out my other article about orange hair problems.https://hubpages.com/style/Daily-Hair-Hack-DIY-Get...

      ZBusters, hey! :) The 20 is much better for lightening and brightening. I always do a strand test first to check what timing I need. Volume 10 is better for depositing color/darkening.

      Hi NataliaASM, I make sure to have my hair as evenly colored/bleached as possible, then apply all over. Leave the roots until last because they process faster due to the warmth of your scalp. Just remember though, the 7A is somewhat darker than the 7AA. It's easy to mix them up when ordering :/

      I hope this helps.

      SPECTACULAR tutorial! I have naturally dark down hair with warm undertones, and grey. Wanted to get to a silver black. Too expensive at the salon so tried myself. Took a few weeks of slowly processing hair to blonde, but couldn’t get the orange yellow tones out. I read this article and mixed t18 and t14 toner to start. Omg..FinLly...no more orange yellow. Now I have a great shade of ash blonde that I will keep for a while. Need to give my hair and scalp a break. One comment I would like to add..use LOTS and LOTS of deep conditioner consistently throughout the process. I bould Hask purple conditioner, a macadamia nut conditioner, and a coconut conditioner, and more. Got the packets at my local Sally Beauty and deep conditioned twice weekly while zi was playing with blonde color. My hair did break a little on the ends, but overall it is still very soft and healthy! And now..I am a blonde..lol

      Hi! Thanks for this, it really helps. I bought the 7aa/632 to correct my gold/orangish hair. My concern is that I have about an inch of very dark brown root and I'm not sure how to apply the 7aa/632. Do I first apply it to my roots and then the rest of the hair? Or the entire hair all together? I also still have some dye left to fill in my roots (I use an online, mail-home service for hair dye) by I was hoping to not have to use it because I want to grow the blonde out, it's too much of a hassle. But in the mean time I wanted the blonde to look nice and not orange, which is why I got the 7aa/632 (: let me know what you think.

      Hello there! Thanks for all of your generous info :) I have rather balayage hair - quite light at the ends and more of a dirty blonde/ dark mousy brown on top. I am only wanting a minimal effect - not heavy silver or whites - just something to kind of rid the brass/ yellow/ oranges that remain in my hair. I would love as well to minimize damage. Therefore I am thinking of using the Volume 10 Developer with the Wella T18 toner...do you think that would give the desired effect or is it necessary to use Volume 20? Thanks in advance for your time and advice!

Can't return them now either of course... :( is there anything I can do to get that pinkish color out and get them a little more bleach blonde looking, I do have some ashy tones with my natural hair but it's mostly light vanilla blonde do I don't want to tone them with purple shampoo like I've done before and have them turn an even weirder color.. help me!

      Thank you! My hair turns red no matter what color I seem to put in it. It's to the point that people comment how my ginger daughter got her red hair from me. I've tried various ash tones, as well as ash intensifier. Still red. The colors always look nice, but my ash blonde roots don't look good with the eventual brassy blonde I am left with after a couple months. This time I used the Wella medium smokey blonde with a natural blonde toner. It's still a golden blonde, but definitely not red.

      Hi Kerry~

      I have read off the the comments and your responses. You seem to have this all down to a science. I was in Sally's and the girl there told me about this process, so I came home and found you! =)

      I want to see your take on my hair. I have Olaplex highlights under my current color (changed full head in October) that is L'oreal's Professional Color light brown bought from Sally's (not box brand). I want to lighten the brown up a bit. Over some of the coloring, I have done my entire head and not just the roots and it is a bit darker now. I have to color my hair every 3 weeks since I have that wonderful almost full grey gene. I am seeing what I call "skunking" grey stripe too easily because my hair grows so fast. I do have natural red tones even though my hair is pretty much grey and color grabs pretty quickly. Although my temples just don't seem to grab the color as solid as the rest of my hair.

      Looking for your input to bring my hair color up a shade or two. Would it be best for my to use a 20 or 30? Should I mix with baking soda, developer and shampoo leaving out peroxide since I would not use the bleach? Also, I am coloring my roots today with Ion Dark Blonde and would think that I would not do my roots but the balance of my hair only. I just need to bring the darker part up a bit so there is not such a drastic dividing line. Should I wait till the weekend to do the cap giving my a break on the processing? The girl at Sally's says I could do it same day or the following with no issues so long I condition really good.

      Any suggestions would be very much appreciated... PS...I hope you recent health concerns are being treated well.

      I don't know what my natural hair color should be, my mom permed my hair every year as a child and I started coloring at 14. Last year I had a baby and let the color go. It grew out a dark dirty blond with gold and red highlights. I recently went light champagne blond and it turned a yellow color. The Sally rep have me T15 toner and 10 volume..whatever that is. How will this work?

      **In regard to roots, please be aware that using 10 volume can indeed lighten the virgin hair. If you have lightened or colored hair and any substantial regrowth or roots, avoid the root area when toning. Toner with 10 volume lightened my level 6 light brown ash roots to a level 7 dark brassy orange brown. Not cute. The rest of my hair toned looked great.

      If you can't avoid your regrowth it might be better to use a product like Redken Shades EQ to tone. You can get it on Amazon. It uses a processing solution instead of a developer and therefore will not lift any virgin root at all. It's a great option for people like myself who love the very grown out root look but still need to tone their blonde lengths.

      Hi Rebecca, I see you're in the home stretch here though if you're seeing yellow too. I'd suggest lightening more, but leave the roots until last as they will process faster due to the heat from your scalp. Hence the different color. Lighten until you're at a banana lemon color, then the medium ash should work OK, otherwise you will encounter more grayish issues. I actually had a gray/blue result when I used medium ash over orange/yellow once, I didn't mind it, although it wasn't what I was aiming for. Use 20 volume developer. Let us know when you've finished please? - Love, Kerry Xxx ^_^

      Hello Tannie, that product is a color not a toner. If you are trying to go light blonde, it will be too dark. I would suggest using the Beige toner, however, you will likely need to lighten a bit more if you're still showing orange. Enjoy your day!

      Hi deen, oh thanks so much for asking, I am doing well right now. Only two more chemo treatments to go, then some radiation for a few weeks. I feel so energetic today due to the steroids, I might get some extra work done! lol.

      As per your questions, yes I have often used those colors for toning, I just don't leave them for the full amount of time if I use them for that purpose. They won't really lift, as such, because the smokey color is considerably darker than one might think, a deep ash, the medium 7AA is slightly lighter, although the same color, if that makes sense, and will be a tad too dark if a true ash BLONDE is what you seek. So, leave it about 8 minutes then check. I know you will love it so much. I always use 20 volume Wella for these colors.

      I bet your hair is gorgeous! Please feel free to message me a photo of your pretty hairstyle on my FB page.

      Have a beautiful day ^_^

      Hi, Kerry. How's your health? Hope things are going well.

      You've been mentioning in some previous answers that the last 2 products (7A and 7AA) in the table were colors. Does that mean you toned brassiness with permanent colors? Didn't they lift?

      I have Asian hair. I'm having a plan to make my hair tip as light as possible (ombre), just for fun, maybe a bit blonde. But I got stuck to decide how I'll tone the blonde-bleached part. Since there's no semi nor demi permanent color sold in my country, is it okay to use permanent color as toner on bleached hair? If okay, what developer should I use? 10vol or 20vol?

      Thanks

      Kerry 

      2 years ago from The Beautiful United States of America!

      Hi Faith, thanks for the kind words. Yes, that smokey ash can be a little dark, the other color, the 7AA is more or less the same color, only lighter. But don't use this over the smokey ash blonde, it won't change anything.

      I didn't bleach again I just waited, however, if your hair is in good condition, wash two or three times with Dawn dish soap, that will strip some of the color. You could also just pull some strands for highlights and bleach those. Add a few more over time to create a whole-head lighter look.

      I hope this helps, and please accept my apologies for the slow response

      Regards,

      Kerry Xx ^_^

      Thank you! I had orange brassy hair after a few months of not dying, had about 2 inch new growth. I was dying my hair with box dye for a few years, medium ash brown, but apparently sometime the box dye really lightened my hair...leaving a golden brassy color after months of washing. So I used "Color Prep" by Color Oops last night, which took my hair to its natural state, which was a yellowish brassy dark blonde and it didn't look terrible but I don't like yellow blonde, so I read your blog and took your advice on using Wella Medium Ash Blonde with 20 Developer and it worked wonders on my hair! Thank you!

      Hi Susanem3, the t50 will give you anything ranging from silver, to purple/lilac, or even blueish hair. If you have very light bleached hair, I would suggest doing a strand test first, because you could possibly only need to leave it on for a fraction of the suggested time to get the color you want.

      Sorry for the long winded response, I've been out with health issues for a while.
