What to do when hair turns grey after using L'Oreal Paris Excellence Creme in the shade Light Ash Blonde? Two days ago, i bleached and then toned my hair to take out the orange. This took away most of the orange but there were still some streaks. My friend suggested that I use an ash-blonde colour to counter-act with the orange to give me a more natural looking blonde. This turned out to be a disaster, as my hair is now just a very grey colour. The colour I am aiming for is like meganheartsmakeup's in this video: http://www.youtube.co...=5#p/u/45/YUpg8lqgnkU

I'd rather not have to go to a professional as I don't really have the money.. If anyone can tell me what to do it will be MUCH appreciated. Thank you so much. If I have forgotten to add any information please tell me and I will make sure to add it in.

i would try a nice and easy blonde 103 b or 103 a honey blonde to go on top. i have done this in the past, it looked so whitey grey, i dyed it straight away but put loads of conditioner on right afterwards and left it for a good half hour. good luck, i think you will be ok.

Ash will take out any warmth in your hair so I am not surprised it's turned grey. Light Ash blonde was a bit too harsh. I know some hairdressers can be expensive but atleast you would have obtained the colour you wanted. Sorry, don't mean to sound harsh.

Could you not go on a training evening at a local hairdressers? They are all supervised by a senior hairdresser and they charge a lot less as well.
Or maybe a mobile hairdresser?

Don't worry, I realise now that that was a bit of a bad move. If I can't dye over it or anything then I'll probably go to the hairdressers anyway, but I was hoping to leave that as a last resort. Would it be a bad idea to dye over it with a golden blonde colour? Sorry if that sounds like a really stupid question, haha.
Leave it a couple of weeks then try using another toner shade such as pearl or baby blonde.

How grey is your grey? Have all red tones been removed? I suggest Indola caramel tint mousse (applied after shampoo) till you get pro help. Give your hair a weekly deep conditioner & you wont need all the expensive de-tangly products.

On the meganhearts vid she advises products costing $100+. Had she used a salon the most she would need would be a good conditioner & shine spray to maintain her style.
is there a college near you that has hairdressing courses ? if so they will do your hair for a fraction of the price,ring up and ask to speak to the course tutor and he will probably be able to use you as part of a lesson to his pupils, they usually have a beauty section too and you can have a facial as well and still at very reasonable prices.

Thanks everyone for your help, I actually dyed over the colour with one of the 'Nice N Easy' colours that nextqueen suggested, in 'lightest summer blonde' or something along those lines. It was still a little grey for a couple of days but it washed out quickly and I am very happy with the result, although I will definitely be giving my hair a break for a while now! Thanks again!<3
