FAQ: Should I Tone My Bleached Hair With A Toner?

Question:
I want to bleach my hair white blond. After I am done, do I need to use a toner?

Answer:
If you bleach your hair white and do it right and LOVE the color, you do not need to use a toner. You need a toner only if
  • you want to give it a hue (purple, blue...)
  • you need to correct the tonality (such as if it has a yellowish undertones) and you want to get rid of them (you will need purple or blue toner)
  • you are a swimmer and your hair turns green you may have to tone it down with strawberry red toner
Check out toners by Clairol, Wella, L'Oreal, Jerome Russell (in UK), etc.
