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

I've decided I'm sick of having my hair done blonde, I can't afford to have it done more than a couple of times a year so my roots are always terrible. Last time I went in, my hairdresser was like "Wow it's so grown out it's gone ombre, I love it!" blush

I've been having blonde put in for so long I don't knowny batural colour! I think it's a light brunette, I used to be dark blonde, but my roots are definitely more brown now.

Can I just dye over the blonde with a brown box dye? I can't afford to go to the salon and I'm sick of my dreadful roots sad

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.

Thanks, how would I know what to google?

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.
