Which Is The Best Blonde Toner?

Looking to transform yellow bleached hair into icy white strands? Toner after bleach is the way to go. We have already written a lot on how to use hair toner after bleaching, but choosing the best blonde toner is equally important. Learning how to pick a toner will allow you to achieve professional results at home.

Best Toner For Blonde Hair

If you are looking for a natural blonde, the best toner for blonde hair is one that removes the yellow but keeps it looking natural. If you have just bleached your hair, you also want something that cares for your hair at the same time as it dyes. Schwarzkopf Professional Blond Me Blonde toner in sand is low ammonia and works on hair levels 9 or higher. Choose the caramel shade if you are after a lighter result.

Best Platinum Toner

To achieve platinum hair you need to bleach your hair to level 10, or a very pale yellow. Toner is then used to remove that yellow and give hair a sparkling platinum finish. The best platinum toner is most likely Wella Color Charm T18, also known as White Lady. Applied to pre-lightened hair it cancels yellow beautifully while still looking natural.

Another fan favourite is is Schwarzkopf Professional Blond Me Blonde toner in Ice, as it removes any hint of yellow from the hair

Keep in mind that your hair needs to be almost white for those toners to work properly. Toner won’t lighten your hair, so if your hair didn’t lift enough you may need to bleach again.

Best Toner For White Hair

White hair is a more extreme version of platinum. Hair is made so white it feels translucent. The best professional toner for white hair is probably PulpRiot Mercury, which is a favourite among hairdressers.
