Light purple hair, from light brown hair. Bleach/toxicity inevitable?

The color I love is a light, gentle purple, either more solid
or more varied
. Here's my natural color
, light brown (with a little blond if seen, like this, in the sun).
I have no experience with hair dyeing, but it's clear I'd need bleach or its equivalent.
Are there any less caustic, less strong-smelling alternatives for the bleach and/or for the dye?
And how often would I need to go through the process in order to maintain the color?
