Bleaching hair then coloring it?

I found a box bleaching kit for even the darkest of hair to be bleached lighter.

I did the process since my hair is extremely short to get started on going blonde. I left it on the whole time it said too and I knew I wouldn't get to the blonde color I wanted but would get a lot closer. So I now a yellowish gold hair color ( that going from dark Brown almost black I knew it would have some gold tint)

But now can I just buy some hair color and put it on?

I read about toners but was wondering what boxed hair color would do?

Looking and feeling my hair, it feels fine and doesn't seem to have any noticeable damage. Plus even if I did have some damage I wouldn't matter since I loved my head shaved and would just do it again. Haha
