I dyed my hair medium/dirty blonde and now it looks greyish?

My starting color was a very light blonde..I had used loreal natural match- light natural blonde. Then I decided I wanted to go back to my natural color which is dark blonde, so I used Loreal Preference-medium blonde. it didnt go green or anything but I find it looks a little grey and very dull. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix it? I was thinking trying a dye with golden tones to brighten it up a bit but I dont want it going yellow or orange.

    Good thinking, there is a risk of turning too yellow or orange with a color. A toner is another option, it's like color but not as strong. Your best bet is to try a color depositing shampoo in gold. Shampoo with it daily until your hair reaches your desired shade, then just use it occasionally for maintenance.Tressa Watercolors makes a great one. It has several golden tones to choose from, is moisturizing, and gentle enough for daily use.

    If you don't mind the color too much, you could brighten it up by using frost and glow. I dye my hair medium brown, use frost and glow, and the highlights come out a beautiful blonde. It never turns orange...... that would only happen if you don't leave the solution on long enough.
