I've used a boxed dye on my mid/light blonde hair, and it's much lighter that I had expected. I wouldn't mind it being lighter but it's got a nasty yellow tint and doesn't look natural at all. I've tried a purple toner but hasn't made a difference. I really can't afford a hairdresser fix, and it's not so bad I'm running there with a hat on...but what would be the easiest way to tone it down? Can I just put a darker blonde tone on it? The condition isn't too bad, but I'm reluctant to keep dying it. Thanks
I believe that blue shampoo tones down yellow and purple shampoo tones orange. Perhaps try a blue toning shampoo (not common in shops but easier online) and leave on dry hair for 30 mins before rinsing perhaps. Lots of conditioner afterwards.
