I prepped my hair first by applying a Aphogee's protein treatment the night before to help my hair colour lift as evenly as possible. My ends probably still had some black colour and parts of my hair were already bleached, then coloured magenta and then a blue/purple. My stylist had to bleach my hair twice and then apply a toner to take down the yellow. My roots were white but the parts that were still a bit brassy were the ends where the black and magenta/purple were. So the next night I used Special Effects Mixer/Toner (Canada USA) to try and take down even more of the yellow. This will have to be a regular treatment to keep the the yellow at bay. I also read good things about John Frieda's Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo on Makeupalley.com, which is a purple shampoo meant for toning down brassiness in blonde hair, so I invested in a tube of the shampoo.
