There might be several ways to do this. Off hand, I would try clipping a inverse adjustment layer, the using the blend if sliders to bring back all the tones you want, except white.

The "Blend if" sliders that @Chuck Uebele  is referring to can be found within the Layer Style dialog box. Right mouse click on a layer within the Layers panel and choose Blending Options.
