A high lift blonde color is required to dye hair blonde without bleach, along with other typical tools such as brush and tinting bowl. Usually, the color that you select must be an ash tone, as it is needed to neutralize those unwanted yellow and orange pigment surfacing while lightening. These pigments are always seen when you apply a warmer shade.
A salon quality high lift is required if you need maximum lift along with a robust toning effect. A box dye will not do here, as they can neither high lift nor lighten up your manes. To save your time and avoid confusion while selecting from several promising brands, we recommend you Matrix for dark hair, as it is safe for lightening purpose. You can even rely on Schwarzkopf Igora and Wella Koleston, which have additional ash tone for avoiding gold and orange tones.
