i've used 323 from clairol - i really liked it. but you need to use a developer with it, so if you want to stay away from peroxide, i'd try the clairol born blonde toners. i don't like them as much, but i used them when i first went blonde because i felt a lot more comfortable with applying them myself.

i also wrote you a little note about wella toners in your other post!

I have already recommended  in another post, Schwarzkopf silver shampoo, as a toner. Does not contain Ammonia, and no need for a developer, and you can use it a few days  a week or until you get the desired results. You can purchase this at any sally's beauty store.
I hope this helps a little.

Hello Asiabo,
 
Thank you for your reply.  I have this toner you say clairol 323, but it have ammonia? wow so tell me something, developer and peroxise are the samething, or Not?? cause i always use clairol peroxise Vol. 40.

step 1- color my hair and dry withh a towel.
step 2- mix peroxise or developer don't know which one, mix it with the toner.

well i'm no color expert, but the way i understand it, each developer has a certain percentage of peroxide.

i use a 20% developer with the clairol toner, i think 40% would be too high especially if you just got done bleaching.

how long you leave the toner in is going to be different for each person, so it really is trial and error. i think i left mine in for 20 - 30 minutes, but i think i should have gone a bit longer.
a strand test is the best way to determine this!

thanks for the compliment. i'm not sure what color my hair is, since it looks different to me every day and in different light. it's super annoying but i guess that's what i get for being blonde.
let me know how the toner works out!

Hi AsiaBoSmile
 
No, I did not have my hair bleached.  so after i color my roots, i use the toner and mixed with a developer vol.40 all over my hair or just the roots?, since my hair is not bleached.  so the toner will lift my hair, I hopeLOLthis toner form clairo 323 has ammonia??halloween2
 
I love being blonde, blonde for everLOLLOLLOLLOL

i assumed your hair was bleached - you're only supposed to use the toner if your hair is a pale yellow. i doubt it will lift your hair without bleach.
i wouldn't use 40 volume developer, i would use 20.
i don't know if it has ammonia, look it up or call clairol.

A good bleach, I use Schwartzkopf Vario blond plus bleach, best to get the blue powder, this is what I use on clients, this is a professional bleach, you can buy at sally's. Maybe someone can recommend a good box bleach you can buy from a drug store.

Smilehi Karen s,

i like clairol 7th stage with 2 - 3 activating packets and i haven't figured out the perfect toner yet. but i have used 40 before and it worked for me.
after you bleach, follow the directions for the toner you want to use, this should cancel out yellow.

sorry, that picture didn't show up, maybe try again?

No bleach is gentle on your hair, any bleach will cause damage to the hair. Depending on the colour you already have is dependent on the strength of developer, for maximum lift use the 40 vol. It really doesn't matter which brand of developer you use. I have already advised you on a way to tone down any yellow tones in a few posts above this. Schwartzkopf Silver shampoo is the best toner, and it has no ammonia, and no need to use a developer, and you can use this every day on your hair until you get-the desired colour, just note the silver shampoo is violet in colour so don't worry your hair wont turn purple, just make sure you use it via manufactures instructions.
 
I hope this helps, any more questions just ask, no problem.
 
Karen xx

thanks for reposting!

that blonde looks a little warmer than what the clairol toner gave me, but everyone's hair will be different. if you want closer to britney's hair you may want to try a beige toner, maybe 301D instead of 323D.
