Going from bleached blonde to brown?

I had my hair dyed balayage about three months ago, but Iโ€™ve grown sick of the blonde. I dyed my hair with SEMI permanent hair dye wanting to

go back to brown. I did a little bit of research and saw that I needed to use a filler for my hair, otherwise it would just turn green. I saw someone mix a brown color with another brownish reddish color, saying that that would work as a filler also, so thatโ€™s exactly what I did. If my hair does turn green once it eventually fades, can I use ACTUAL fillers this time and then dye it back to brown?

โ€œActual Fillersโ€ are demi permanent colours. You need to understand the colour wheel to formulate it is not as simple as saying โ€œall blondes fill with redโ€ when going brown. When you lighten from dark to light you are lifting through red, orange, gold. You need to replace the missing pigment.
