I got my first highlights when I was 19 and I have been highlighting/dyeing my hair ever since. I usually just put in blond and/or red highlights into my naturally medium brown hair to give it a little lift, but around April or May I dyed it dark red. I liked it well enough, but recently decided I wanted to do something different. I've never gone darker only lighter and usually with highlights. Also I've done home coloring, only gone to a salon. Well, last night my aunt dyed my hair dark, dark brown out of a box. I used Revlon Colorsilk Dark Brown. I liked it. It smelled nice and it came out great. It is really dark and will take some getting use to, but I think I'm going to like it. It will be good for the fall and winter.
