Yes, some help would be much appreciated. I contacted the RC site and they suggested I start with the ash blonde which shocked me. Maybe you'll agree though.
OK...started getting few grays and thinking, "Gosh, my hair is kinda mousy looking. I wonder if you loose color as you age. But wait there are a few red ones in there. Go figure". This was out in the sunshine. So I picked up a neutral light brown and whoa, did I have red (when wet my hair looked orange by my scalp)! Yikes. Not what I wanted. Then I realized I should have gone with a cool base. I tried a light ash brown from Sally's which really seemed darker than I really am (and got comments like, "oh, you dyed your hair darker". I have had the salon do my hair and it gets plenty brown, but too brown and fades to a coppery look. Which is what I have again now after a failed attempt at a Loreal Kit that included highlights.
Am I to understand that the RC won't fade and you just have to touch up your roots? Because at this point it sounds awesome. I think from their colors online that I am either a light chesnut or golden chesnut naturally. From the description of the Golden Brown "It is our most popular shade and a good one to try when looking for a medium to dark brown", I think that is darker than I really am.
