Can I dye my bleached blonde hair brown with a box dye?

It will turn green.

Get it done professionally. They need to add a red toner before the brown.

I used to bleach mine at home

Felt like going back to my natural (very dark brown)

Just got a box dye and it was fine

(It does take quickly because bleached hair is porus)

Yes you can. You need a certain type of brown, I've forgotten if you need ash or you avoid ash but I've done it loads, never had a problem yet.

I usually google to het the correct colour.

I do this periodically.

Have full head of finely weaved bleach for years, then get bored and whack on a brown box dye.

Never had a problem.
