Ok, tell me your fav blonde home dye kit and why!
I need a change and can't afford a salon.

I'm naturally dark blonde.

And what do you do to make it look good.

I hate hate hate 'yellowing'

I believe you need a toner when you home dye blonde. At least that's what I'm led to believe. I know you can buy them in a violet type of shade to tone down the brassy effect you can get with blonde colourants. Sorry I can't be of more help

Timber on the list.
Silver shampoo -once /twice a week?

Any particular brand would you recommend?
I've always dyed it blonde (in my youth) DC, money and laziness and I stopped. So now I'm a mousey brown now and its yuck

Lots of people on here swear by Superdrugs own brand for hair dye.

I'm a bit of a slattern tend to buy what ever is on half price at Sainsburys when i suddenly remember I've got the Inlaws the next day and have to do a quick rescue job, but whenever I have been organised enough to buy it beforehand in Superdrug I have found it to be very good, it does seem to last longer and it is half the price of some of the others.

I would love to know where you get toner from and what it is called?
