If you have pre-lightened or naturally blonde hair you can use one of Bblonde's five different toners to refresh your colour & improve the condition of your hair. I was quite tempted to try their Pink Maximum Colour Toner but as I was craving granny hair again I went with the silver one instead. I loved the look of the colour on the box & it seemed very easy to apply. The toner is ready to use straight out of the bottle plus this product doesn't contain any ammonia or peroxide so it is safe & gentle on the hair. I simply washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo, sectioned my hair & applied the toner with a tint brush. You get 75ml of the dark purple liquid in each bottle & I found that it was the perfect amount for me. I have just had my hair cut to shoulder length though so if your hair is much longer than mine I would suggest getting two bottles. The toner goes on nicely & lathers up a bit so you can really massage it into your hair for an even application. Then I piled my hair on top of my head, popped a plastic cap on top & blasted the cap with my hairdryer for five minutes. Bleached hair can be very dry & porous so development time will vary depending on the condition of your hair. Bblonde recommend leaving it on anywhere between 10-30 minutes. I didn't bother to do a strand test & just went for the middle ground of twenty minutes.
The toner helps to condition the hair so you don't need to apply any extra conditioner afterwards. I rinsed my hair until the water ran clear & styled it as usual. Although the colour doesn't quite match up with the picture on the box, I still think it looks fab! The overall tone is much ashier than it was & I love the fresh silvery shade. I normally use a purple shampoo to keep my tone looking icy but they can be very drying & I have to use them every time I wash or those yellow tones start to creep in again. What I like about this toner is that it feels very conditioning & the results last much longer. It should last about eight washes before you need to top up your colour. Obviously bleaching your hair is very damaging so using a toner like this without ammonia or peroxide will make your hair look a lot healthier. The price can't be beaten either. This BBlonde toner costs less than a fiver & it's totally transformed the colour of my hair. Whether you have a full head of bleach like me or just a few highlights, this stuff can take you from brassy blonde to silver goddess in half an hour. Grey hair is so on trend right now & the Jerome Russell Bblonde silver toner is such a brilliant way to get the look at home.
