 First you want to do a cleansing cap, like a French fluff. Mix equal parts ( 1 scoop/1 ounce) powder bleach, 10 volume developer, shampoo and water, preferably distilled. Work into hair quickly and lather and begin checking in a minute or two. You just want to remove the off-tone cast. As son as you see the cast lifted, rinse and shampoo lightly. You may not have to do anything else. If you do, use a beige blonde with 5 volume (equal parts 10 volume and distilled water), checking in a few minutes.
Best of luck to you.
