Eeek, either go dark all over putting a reddy colour on first to stop it going green, or bleach again - but you have two more stages to go to get to proper blonde - after orange there's peach and then banana yellow, then blonde
If you don't want the damage of re- bleaching just go dark all over.
I'd say probably hair dressers. I would guess the only way to get it blond would be a bleach kit, but if you're not confident to use that then a hairdressers is your only option really. I've home coloured for years, but I'd hate to recommend something that makes all your hair fall out o_0
What colour did you use TLF? Just curious as I dye my roots (naturally dark reddish brown) blonde about every 4 weeks to match the rest of my hair. I have used Loreal products many times and not had the problem with orange roots, so interested to know what shade you used. I used to use L'oreal bronze blonde but unfortunately they have discontinued it. I do find I need to use a very light blonde shade to get the roots to a nice natural looking colour.
My preferred shade would be strawberry blonde but I have spent hours looking for the right shade to no avail and having it done at the hairdressers is costly.
Hope you get it sorted though, I've had many hair colour mishaps in the past and you have my total sympathy.
I did this,I had bright carrot orange coloured hair.
A local hairdressers run a colour disaster clinic for idiots like me.She sorted it out but refused to put any more bleach on due to my hair being slightly very frazzled so she took it all dark,cost me nearly £100 to get it corrected but was a lesson very well learnt never to try & go blonde at home again
