I have the same problem! I'm going to get colour remover and start again, you were talking about getting a toner, a toner makes you hair go lighter or darker! Hope everything goes well for you x
Erm, removing colour from bleached hair won't do anything. The reason it's gone ginger is because the dark pigments have been removed but the red tones haven't. However the red tones aren't a colour that's been applied to your hair, so a remover won't be able to strip them. The only way they can be removed is through bleaching or you can tone them with toners to be more ashy.

Jstripping hair does not work well with re dying . because of the oxidisation that occurs when stripping your hair any further hair dye.that you try out will turn out very dark. The common one is stripping hair and trying to dye it blonde ❌ it just turns dark brown to gingery brown.
Got to the drugstore buy a good quality toner but if your hair is orange and yellow id reccomend two toners because green neutralises orange and purple neutralises yellow
I hope that this helps ! ❤

Okay,
Bleach it again - 30 developer.
Leave it on for 30 minutes - However after around 20 minutes check the feel of your hair - if it snaps easily, then remove straight away, don't worry your hair won't fall out.

After this - it should be a very pale yellow even if it has any orange bits just leave alone don't bleach it more than 3 times, its not worth it.

Aftr - buy a hair dye, preferbly from sallys but you don't have to - buy a blonde in a shade 9-10. after you have put the dye on it should be a blonde colour. Use purple shampoo for 10 minutes while showering to tone out any brassiness.
Now you should have a blonde shade - wait a few days and whatever shade of blonde you want - buy a hair dye that colour and it will work.

If your hair turns out very light do not put ash blonde on it unless you want a grey/silver tint blonde.

Yes, Silver Shampoo is great stuff! It will definitely take away the brassy tones! Just be careful...my hair turned a slightly purpley colour after using every day! That stuff is addictive

Get some purple shampoo and a deep conditioner! I have bleached my own hair for years, It works because the purple is the opposite to the orange/yellow in your hair.

You buy blonde toner, than put in on where you got your hair coloured, wait for how long it says than wash it out. It makes the colour lighter. It depends on how much you put on your hair, for how much lighter it will get.
