It's been years since I've had my original hair color. I'm naturally a brunette. It's not a very exciting color to be honest and I just kinda got bored with it and decided I would be a better red head. Turned out, I was right. LOL! I've had TONS of compliments on my red hair. And for about the past 2-3 years, I've used the same color. Then we returned from Italy and I wanted to go a tad bit darker. And I did. It wasn't major, but it was darker and I liked it. This past week it was time to re-dye. So, I grabbed what I thought was the same color at the store and went ahead and dyed it. As it dried, I knew it wasn't the same. It's dark. Very, very dark. It's so red, it's almost black. And I'm trying to get used to it. So, here are two photos - light red hair and what it looks like now. Which do you like?
