How do I tone hair at home?

Or, check out both of these articles by Very Easy Makeup.
What volume developer should I use with Wella toner?
I recommend a volume 20 developer. This will “lift” or lighten your hair color by one to two levels.
Volume 10 developer is the weakest and volume 30 and 40 developer is a bit strong!
How often can I tone my hair with Wella T18?
I recommend toning your hair every month with Wella T18.
If you tone your hair more often, you risk damaging your hair.
If you wait more than 6 weeks to tone your hair with Wella toner, you risk having your roots show. Your hair will also start to become brassy, orange, and/or yellow.
How often should I tone my hair?
You will likely need to tone your hair every 4-6 weeks to prevent it from getting brassy.
What do I need to tone my hair at home?
You’ll need a good Wella toner, a volume 20 developer, and an application bottle to tone your hair at home.
Should I tone my hair before dying it pink?
No! If you want light pink hair, you will need to bleach your hair first and then dye your hair pink.
Should I tone my hair before dying it blue?
No! If you want light blue hair though, you will need to bleach your hair first.
Should I tone my hair after bleaching it?
Yes! Usually, you bleach your hair (make it lighter in color until it is bright yellow light a banana peel) and then one it.
You can also tone your hair without bleaching it first, but your hair color won’t end up as blonde like the picture on the Wella toner box.
Should I tone my hair wet?
Usually – yes. Usually, you apply toner to slightly damp or wet hair, but you don’t need to.
I didn't get my hair wet when making this video.
How long should I keep toner on?
Keep toner on your hair for 20-30 minutes. Don’t do more than that!
The first time you are toning your hair at home, you may want to do only 15 minutes to be safe.
Can I tone my hair twice in one day? Can I tone my hair the following day?
I would not recommend it. Toning your hair too much will damage it.
How do I rinse toner out of my hair?
Simply rinse out hair with a sulfate-free conditioner.

Can I tone my hair with purple shampoo?
Purple shampoo is best at taking out any brassy hues, orange hues, or yellow hues.
I love the Oligo blacklight purple shampoo.
To tone your hair, check out the Fanola No Yellow shampoo.
