No a blonde hair dye will not lighten brown hair even if its light brown. Basically you need bleach, maybe more than once to get all the red tones out. Could you get lots of highlights instead and then as you top up the highlights your hair will get blonder.

Blonde hair dye will not lighten a brown box dye. By all means use a colour remover to get rid of the darker colour but you would then need bleach to get your hair light enough for a blonde colour. If you don't remove the red tones (what gives the ginger colour) then you will never get to blonde
