Ok so 3 weeks ago one of my friends bleached my hair for me, the first time it turned out yellow and then orange towards the bottom so she bleached it again a little over a week later and when she bleached it she didn't have toner so she was supposed to tone it for me the next day that was a week ago!, and my roots are already showing as I have naturally dark brown hair..so my question is now that it is bleached what do I need to do to get it back to dark brown?? I was wanting to do this ASAP and I really don't want to go pay a colorist to do it since I know it will be EXPENSIVE, so preferably the cheapest way possible. Thanks for taking your time to read this!

Ok here is the back of my hair...not the best lighting

I have a pic of the front but my hair is pulled up but I can tell how yellow it looks..I hate this pic of me it was taken as a joke but HAHA it works for this though so BE NICE! LMFAO!

if you dont care about ruined hair, i'd see a colorist cause if you use at home wrong it could EASILY fry your hair :(

 I would just go get some brown hair color. But warning, it may frizz, so be prepared for that. Extra conditioner is a plus.

If not go to the salon and tell them you need a color strip.

I have really good conditioner already, a LOT of it too since after bleaching my hair it felt like straw literally! It was awful and believe me I will never bleach it again! Someone told me though that if you JUST put brown on it then it will turn green so that is why I am asking because I need to figure out how to not have green or any funky color hair for that matter! lol

The problem is if you just die your hair back to brown the blonde will come through.  You have to kind of prime it first.  I have blonde hair and when I dyed it dark brown she had to basically die it twice.  The first was a coppery color, then the brown.

You really should go to a salon or even a beauty school.  Most likely for the color to take evenly you will need to fill it to put back in the missing pigments.  Bleached hair is so porous, it "soaks" up the color very unevenly resulting in flat uneven color.  Can you post pics?  I will try to help.
