Yikes! lol

There are several colour-enhancing shampoos out there that are available to buy from either a salon or a wholesalers such as Sally, a golden tone would take off some of that ash, but as for a toner I would get advice from your own stylist. Without actually seeing your hair I couldn't really recommend which colour would be best!

I have a similar question and thought I'd ask it here.

Is there a way to lighten up highlights that have gone yellow? Purple shampoo doesn't help. Toning or bleaching>?

Bleaching will get them lighter, but it is nearly impossible to pick up each strand. Toning will deepen the highlights, but will more permanently take care of the unwanted yellow. Toning on porous hair typically doesn't last long and will need to be supported by a color enhancing shampoo (purple or blue violet) Toning usually lasts about 5-7 shampoos before you start seeing warmth again.
