Is Wella T28 the BEST natural blonde toner?

Before Pictures of Wella T28 Toner
Below are the BEFORE pictures of Wella T28 toner. As you can see, I had dark blonde hair. I didn’t like my hair color, despite spending $150+ at a salon to get it done less than 1 month ago! (I’ll be writing a whole article about why I prefer to do my hair at home vs. go to a salon).

Picking a Toner Color – Why I Chose Wella T28
Wella has 8 main toner colors for blondes.
I’ve used T18 (lightest ash blonde) from the Ash family and T27 (medium beige blonde) and T35 (beige blonde) from the Beige family previously, so I wanted to give Wella T28 (natural blonde) a try.
Natural blonde” sounds GREAT, right?
In my mind, “natural blonde” sounds a lot better than “beige blonde,” so I bought Wella T28 online from Sally’s to try something new.
Plus, I assumed that T28 would cut out the yellow hues and brassiness from my hair, since it is in the “silver” family. When I used Wella T18 it cut out ALL the brassiness from my hair, so I assumed that T28 would do the same since the shades look so similar in the pictures.

Wella T28 (Natural Blonde) Results
I’ll admit, I wasn’t in love with the Wella T28 (natural blonde) results. Below is a picture of my hair. I'll be honest. I don't love Wella T28.
T28 kind of reminds me of barbie-colored hair. Not natural-looking at all!
