The easiest and safest way to tone hair extensions into an Ash Blonde shade is to use Purple Shampoo. This is weaker than an actual toner and can easily be diluted to control the strength. As Blonde hair extensions tend to be more porous than your hair we advise using the shampoo in a water bath rather than applying directly to the hair.
