Help with toner!by ForsoktvaPosted 4 days, 9 hours ago
Hi guys, I need some help. I’ve bleached my hair from dark brown and it’s now what I would consider yellow. Having looked up some online research the recommended toner is from the wella charm series. I would’ve gone for T28 on my hair. However unfortunately I can’t seem to find the t28 being sold anywhere where I am.
What toner could I use to get rid of the brassy colour? I think I’m a level 7-8. Am I right in thinking about from my understanding I should use a toner that starts with 7/... thanks!

What's your end goal? There are some areas that look a bit more orange than others, and some toners can definitely highlight that unevenness. I am personally not a huge fan of Color Charm. They are quite harsh in my experience and most people use T18 or T14, which are colours that can be achieve with non-damaging methods like a purple shampoo soak for 30 min to an hour.

Thanks for your response. Goal is something like attached image.

Okay, you'll definitely need some spot-bleaching then on the darker orange sections. I think you could get away with a level 9 on the second photo, but ideally you want an even level 10. As for toners, I don't have a tone of experience in natural colours, but I like the Redken Shades EQ line. I think 09N and/or 09V would probably be a good choice. They don't have much pigment, so you really need a clean base, but that's true with most toners.

Yes bleach more definitely I probably would all over lightly cuz you’re maybe the banana peel outside not inside. I don’t think you want platinum but a hair dye is not going to be strong enough to shift that extreme brass
If you go get to level 10, the world is your oyster and it’s very easy to tone within the level, even with say a low developer semi in a nice light blonde but CHOOSE A DYE LIGHTER THAN YOUR GOAL COLOR bc they pull dark on processed hair. Be wary of ‘ash’ unless you know for certain the base isn’t green
