URGENT HELP WITH BLEACHby Eiri236Posted 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Bawling as I type this and need help ASAP! Vleached my already bleached hair 3 days ago as my roots were very long, ended up with orange roots. No surprise. Used just toner and shampoo on it, stayed orange and gave me disgusting purple highlights on my front pieces that frame my face. Tried to tone it again there with Bleach London White Toner which only has a 7 volume developer with absolutely no success, made a huge gray/purple band on my head which makes the orange roots look even worse. Does anyone have a quick guaranteed solution to this? Absolutely gutted this has happened and any help would be so much appreciated!

Do you have a picture of your hair currently? it will be easier to advise if we can see how dark the orange is. Usually in my experience if you tone hair that's too dark it won't have the desired outcome which means, i think the orange bleached hair is still too dark to tone. To fix this you'll probably need to bleach the orange part again before toning with purple shampoo etc.
What was the first toner you used? was it something similar/semi permanent to a purple shampoo? if so you can try something like head and shoulders anti dandruff shampoo, which will take the purple and toned gray colour out allowing you to fix the orange roots. But if the toner was a demi which i think?? the bleach london toner is because of the developer you'll need to use a colour remover something like colour b4 for example, to effectively take the toner out.

You just need more lift on the darkest bits. As mentioned, if your hair is orange, toner won't show up well over it. Afterward, try toning with a non-damaging solution like a purple shampoo left on clean dry hair for 30-60 minutes.
The purple bits will fade out with shampooing and go a grayish/white shade.
