Thanks CurliLocks. I'm still weighing my options. My hair really takes color. The first time I used a semi permanent (med ash brown), it was almost black. But, it did wash out over time. The next time I tried med ash brown and a natural medium brown. Way too much of a reddish cast. Then I tried med ash brown and light ash brown. The color was perfect. Lasted a long, long time. Then light ash brown was discontinued so I tried Natural Instincts. Color was okay but not perfect and faded very fast.
My natural color is a cool dark brown. I really like ash shades since they don't produce that reddish cast that I hate. I have been looking at the RC website. It looks like Ash Brown #2 mixed with Light Ash Blonde to create a lighter shade. What do you think? Do you have a better suggestion? Thanks!
