A high lift blonde home dye...

I have light copper colour hair at the moment. It's been bleached bathed at the hairdressers a couple of times over that last couple of months, amazingly it's not in too bad a condition, albeit a tad dry & a few spilt ends! It's due a trim anyway!

At the moment, it's kind of like a neither here or there shade - gingery, a tiny bit blondey iykwim? Anyway, I think I want to get rid of the 'brassiness' to it, so I was thinking of putting on a light ash blonde. Like this one:

The ash tone should subdue some of the red/goldness that I have & with it being a very light blonde I might achieve a bit of lift do you think?

I don't wish to bleach anymore, just hoping a box colour could maybe lift it a couple of shades without it going yellow!

Hmm it night.,. but without bleach im not too sure..I like mine white blond and spiky so I use Live XXL 00A it does have bleach though but is easy to use , definitely lifts to a nice platinum .. my hair is naturally quite dark with grey bits (nice.. a bit tabby cat!). I find it works quite well pale tones , very little yellow , but i do tend to leave it a bit longer than they say , and also used a blue toned shampoo afterwards..

The problem is of course is that all hair is different so dont know how it would be with you . as mine is also short and spiky ,and I like the 'dark roots look' also, im not too concerned about potential yellowness and it grows pretty quick ..

Thanks for your reply!

Oh gosh I really don't know what to do! I just wish it was easier to achieve a more blonder shade without the dreaded bleach.... But I don't want to be blonde blonde if that makes sense!

Just a word of warning, although you are probably aware of this anyway, if you are wanting to put a darker blonde on top of platinum blonde, just be careful, any ash based colours you use could result in a khaki shade, I say from experience. (I was platinum blonde many moons ago!)

Went purple/blue

Be careful
