Would you believe me if I told you my grey hair was completely unintentional? Probably not because every one is obsessed with this look still, I however am over it now but before I let this colour fade and I change it up, (I’m thinking a nice golden brown) I thought I would share with you how I achieved grey hair at home, simply with some toners and purple shampoo.
Clickbait post title warning! Haha
Unless you go to the hairdresser I know grey hair is so hard to achieve and I have seen girls who have tried to get their hair this colour but it only turns super white or even purple. As I said before I did this by accident, I only used these products as I found them to be the best at getting rid of the yellowy tones in my hair. However after a few weeks of using them, they began turning my hair grey which is rather cool. I used the three products below but in-between I was washing my hair with TRESemme Deep Cleansing shampoo (not every time as it does like to strip the hair of any toner and non permanent dye). I also used the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner after every wash to keep my locks super soft and healthy.

Bblonde Maximum Colour Toner in Steel*
I this used only twice in the last three weeks, I popped it all over semi towel dried hair, put some cling film on my head and used a hair dryer to warm it up for 5 min, then left it to develop for 25 minutes, after the first use my hair was really silvery white. I did this again a second time a week later and it added a little more grey to my locks but mainly kept the colour locked in for longer. The consistency is very strange, it’s like a watery jelly and a little goes a long way, so don’t worry about the bottles small size.
Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo
My holy grail for any bleach blonde lady who hates brassiness, this keeps the hair super bright but if used too frequently will add a purple tinge to it. I washed my hair three times a week and used it the conventional way, on wet hair for about 5 minutes, it worked wonders and helped to keep my hair a gorgeous light grey, the under side of my hair did go a little purple which looked really good actually.
Colour Freedom Non Permanent Hair Colour in Misty Grey
This is the reason I believe my hair actually turned the colour you see in the picture of me above. I used this almost like a conditioner, but you can also use it like a toner, in the shower I would put two teaspoon sized blobs onto my hair and just rub it all in, leaving it on for about 10 minutes. I used this twice a week, sometimes more if I felt it needed freshening up. I noticed a huge difference in the colour of my hair after the first application and the colour is most definitely a misty grey.
If you have just bleached your hair then I do not recommend you use the Bblonde toner or the Colour Freedom colour right away as your hair will most likely not take in any of the colour. Leave it a week first, give the Fudge Clean Blonde Shampoo a whirl in that week and then use the other products if you are desiring grey hair.
Let me know if you found this helpful or it worked for getting your hair grey, will you be going grey?
