Best toners for bleached hair?

I've bleached my hair from bright red back to blonde and although it is very light already there are still a few brassy tones at the roots and in a few strands of the lengths are a very very light peachy blonde.

I have Touch of Silver purple shampoo and conditioner to keep it bright but I think I need a toner to tone out the brassiness. What is the best? I have access to La Riche Directions 'White Toner' but anything else I'd have to buy from Boots/online.

THe Directions one isn't that good, it'll only last a couple of washes at best.

I'd recommend Superdrug's colour effects dye in 8.1. It's only 97p a tube and it used to last me a good few weeks. You literally only need to leave it on for five minutes or so or your hair would go purple.

I had bright white hair for over a year and it was the best I used by a clear mile.

Thank you. Would the toner work on very light peach strands?

I'll pop in and get some Monday.

To be honest, I'm not sure. My hair was pretty much banana flesh coloured and it got it white. But at 97p a go if it doesn't work you're not out a lot of money. It's in a small silver plastic bottle. If you do leave it on too long, don't panic, a quick shampoo will sort it _

I'm popping in to Superdrug tomorrow to grab some of that toner. My hair is pretty much pale blonde all over (not banana skin yellow) but there are the few odd strands with a pink tone to them (they're still very pale).
