You don't have to go to the salon and spend tones of money to achieve this color either. You can buy the supplies you need at the local beauty supply store and even some grocery stores.
What you will be needing

- Clothes you don't mind getting bleach on
Before you ever dye bleach or use any kind of chemicals on your hair it is a really good idea to do a strand test. This is just taking a small section of hair in the back or underneath and testing the dye or bleach before applying to your whole head. This prevents burns, allergic reactions and bad coloring results. It is always a pretty good rule to do a strand test before you do anything to your hair especially when trying something new.
Bleach and developer
Bleaching is the process that is going to lighten your hair the most. You mix the bleach and developer together before applying to your hair. Follow the instructions closely and don't forget to do a strand test! The bleach will lighten your hair turning it orange and then kind of a pale yellow color. When you are done bleaching your hair and it looks brassy don't worry there is still another step. If your hair is still very orange you may need to bleach it one more time before moving on to the next step.
This is the part that is going to help you get rid of that brassy yellow color and it turn it a beautiful white color. This is the tricky part. The toner adds a purple color to your hair. Purple is the opposite of white so it neutralizes the yellow and turns your hair a white color. Toners are usually only semi permanent so this you may have to do once a month. Another option is using a toner shampoo or purple shampoo. This you use once a week you just wash it in and then wash it out again.

Repairing and preventing damage
Bleaching and dying your hair can cause a lot of damage. This process strips you hair of oils and proteins it needs to remain healthy. The very best way to avoid damage is to only dye or color your hair once. Try to only touch up your roots instead of doing all over color over and over. The next best thing you can do is deep condition your hair. You can use a special deep conditioner at the store or you can leave you regular conditioner in your hair for half of the day. You can purchase leave in conditioners these condition you hair all day long. Another great way to condition your hair without spending a lot of money is by using egg whites. Leaving egg whites in you hair for a few hours adds shine and proteins in your hair to keep it healthy.
