Make your own toner!
« on: 27 Dec 11 / 11:14 PM »
Hey guys, apologies i havent been around in aggeess


Just wanted to share a lil tip i discovered today..
i was bleaching my friends fringe blonde and she wanted it white.. i went to look in my cupboard.. and to my horror i had no white toner! =O...

anyway, i saw i had a lilac pot of directions, and a pot of lagoon blue.

then the lil lightbulb above my head pinged..

i mixed a bowl of conditioner, with a tiny weeny dab of lilac and a tiiiny weeny dab of lagoon blue, and i mean.. literally dip your brush into the dye.. teeeny tiny amounts of dye.

applied over the blonde, left it for about a minute and a half.. then rinsed

and as you know it, white! =D

i learnt recently at college that blues and violets contradict yellow tones, its called pre-pigmenting.
Im guessing thats all a toner is, is diluted colour..


but anyway, hope you find the tutorial useful! =)

Hey Gothicle! Looks like I'm not the only one who uses lilac to tint to white then! It works sooooo much better than just buying a white toner and lasts longer as well!

Good tip. I will note this down for future use.
When I used to have black and white hair I found that the purpley-blue from the black used to leach into the blonde while I was washing it and tone it without me having to do anything!
I don't care if it's true

i read online that you can put food colouring in conditioner to do the same thing has anyone tried this or think it would work?

I discovered yesterday that if you have canary yellow/ginger hair, pop some un-diluted Lilac over the top. After 8 hours, my dark roots are now silvery blonde!

I find that diluting lilac works much better than white toners. Also, using a diluted lilac helps if your blue dye is fading to green-ness, cancels out those yellowy tones!

diluted violet works on yellow in about 10 minutes

Dang maybe I should have purchased some lilac instead of the white toner. I feel like the white toner has done nothing to my hair. Would Special Effect pumping purple or blue mayham work if it's is super duper diluted?

Yes, any kind of blue or purple should work if you dilute it enough :)

I dipped an end of a hair pin into Deep Purple. Put that into a fruit dish with distilled water & dipped my hair ends into it and it made an interesting pinky to plum. I cant believe how strong the dye is  *lovestars*

I use a similar, but even cheaper method. I take really pigmented colours (directions plum and midnight blue) mix a little bit of blue and plum into loads of conditioner (i keep leftovers so i dont have to mix a new one everytime i tone) till it reaches the desired colour/the colour of the original white toner.

I use this trick very often...also a grey toner is really easy to mix, since directions silver does nothing to my hair!

I just went blonde and this is very helpful, being that my bank account is feeling very depressed right now -__-

i did this but i put too much midnight blue in xD my hair turned blue, beautiful fade! :D i mixed in white toner and silver toner too, here's a tip, put in your conditioner then the purple and/or blue in to your preference and then add in white and silver toner, i did it opposite way round and i put too much blue in cos am daft! aha! :) xxx
