    About a month ago or so I bleached my hair blonde and I hated it so I dyed over it with a semi-permanent.

    The colour faded, which was good as it was too dark. I don't mind the shade of Brown it is now but it's really brassy. It looks really yellow in bright light even though it is still brown.

    I know I should dye over it permanently with a light brown but I'm worried it'll go too dark and my hair is pretty damaged at the moment.

    Would using a purple toner work on the yellow tones within the brown?If anyone has any experience going back brown please let me know

    Purple toner on really ever worked for me when my hair was just bleached,not when I went back to brown, I gradually used darker dye than going straight back to dark brown.

    Thanks, I thought toner might work because there are strong yellow pigments going through.
    I guess I'll have to try out a few different things.
