    ImaStarr:  BRUNETTE BRUNETTE !!!! The dark hair makes your facial features pop more while I think the lighter colors slightly wash you out.

    Chestnut ! It would give you the best of both worlds = brunette with a touch of red.

    There is a way to not get it on your scalp if you have the patience to keep putting some dye on a fine comb and then combing it through, starting with all the roots at the top of the head and then pulling it through with the comb later on. Do not use the shampoo provided in the hair color pack, I suggest getting a really gentle shampoo from the pharmacy. And just use the conditioner provided, but *away* from your scalp, don’t massage that in. Try to find a mild shampoo that isn’t too stripping, for regular use. Perhaps you can find a conditioner for red hair to keep the tone? I know this one:

    Don’t know if you can get it in the States, but something like that would be good. Or perhaps the one for brown hair, depending on which shade you want to bring out more after your coloration.

    Good luck!

    red dyes are the hardest dyes to keep in your hair and have to be treated differently then others, which is why it’s washing out right away. If you go for a reddy brown, wash it only in cold, and only use color safe shampoo with no sulfates. And try to push it as long as possible between washes. A red brown will fade usually into a plain brown, not as brassy or orange as youre thinking

    I would try the chestnut, even though I think the brunette looks great, too. Red DOES fade fast, but after you have it redone (after a few months) the dye should stick better the second time. You can also use a color depositing conditioner (Aveda makes a good red one) which can help!
