I have fine porous hair, but I've lightened it a few shades with Sun-In.. terrible stuff, but it doesn't seem as damaging as using box color.
It does dry out my hair, so I am dc-ing with protein a lot more (minimum once a week).

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)
