Coloring My Hair and Malibu Color Correction

Hi! Today I'm coloring my hair and I'm hoping I'll leave it this way for about 2 months at least. This is what I have:
-Paul Mitchell Permanent Color in 4N
-Paul Mitchell Permanent Color in 3N
-Malibu Color Correction Packet
Here is what I started with:

Please excuse my greasy hair. Then I got in the shower and followed the directions on the back of the Malibu treatment. I shampooed my hair then applied the crystals. I let them sit for 5 minutes and shampooed and rinsed again. NO conditioner! And here is the results from that.

As you can see it definitely removed some color. I just wanted to lighten it up some and get rid of as much red as possible. I definitely noticed a difference. I think this product would be good if your color comes out too dark or you are trying to go blonde and want to get as much color out as possible. I haven't used these before but I'm curious if they would continue to remove color if you did again like the next day or something. They also say they are 100% vegan.
Now onto the color! I love having my hair neutral because it looks great with pretty much anything. So for my formula I mixed 2oz.4N+2oz.3N+4oz of 5vol developer and it was all Paul Mitchell. And this is the finished result.

I really like it. My eyes stand out more I think. Now if my hair was just longer....
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Things are going to be soooo busy these next 2-3 weeks. I start my new job April 2nd and I have a bunch of stuff to take care of in the mean time. I'm going to post as much as I can in the next 2 weeks and hopefully I'll find time when I start working to still post stuff. Thanks for reading!(:
