I like Perfect 10.  It’s easy to use and doesn’t smell completely horrible.  If you have hair past your shoulders or so, make sure to get 2 boxes of dye!

Yep, long hair needs more like PP said, and I see nothing wrong with it if it’s just one shade. My mom does hers all the time and it looks great. I would be wary if you wanted to put in highlights or something, and of course make sure it matches to the very best of your ability. I brought a friend with me to help make sure I picked the right color.

I did mine one color when I was trying to get back to my natural color. It worked and turned out perfectly and now all the color has grown out without an awkward transition! YAY!

I color mine every couple of months with Garnier Nutrisse in some shade of auburn/dark brown.

I do:) I use L’Oreal Colour Expert but I’m not really sure how it works on any other colors than blonde. I think L’Oreal in general typically does a better job than most brands

I really liked Loreal F something….Firea? Feria? Hmmm. Anyway, I’m a licensed cosmetologist (not currently working) and I just used a box the other day. Sooo lazy….

@Belle2Be: I use the Feria and It looks awesome in my hair (though my friend who is a licensed hair dresser did my hair last time and told me not to use the shampoo that comes with it right after dying because it would take the color out faster.)

Buttt my hair is like bright bright red…love it!!

I have used Perfect 10 before, and really like it.  It pulls a lot darker than it looks, so I always remember to go one shade lighter than I really want my hair to look!

@SweetRose2011: Hey! This was me like a week ago! I wonder if it’s the same one LOL!

It’s brown now though, I did a chocolate 5 something over it for our engagement photos.

@Belle2Be: Wow that looks really similar! I think it’s color R68 (kept the tab just in case) I’m dying it like this next time my roots start showing/it fades

@Belle2Be: I think it’ll look awesome. I’m “going through colors to decide for the wedding”, but really I’m doing it while I’m growing my hair out and cant decide. After the wedding I’m cutting all my hair off like Emma Watson just did!

 

SORRY FOR THREADJACKING!

I used to.  I used Loreal Feria, which was ery shiny and healthy looking.  I don’t know how it is on greys though.
