2's who dye their hair...
 
Can anyone tell me what dye the use? I KNOW that completey avoiding damage is impossible but I want something as gentle as possible. I have super dark brown hair right now, and it's just too boring. I would LIKE to do maybe a milk chocolate or caramel brown color. I just feel like the color I have now doesn't compliment my curls, if that makes any sense?

Garnier oilia is a good one. Henna is always a good option because its natural but will not lighten

I use Garnier Nutrisse Radiant Blondes, it's really mild and needs the heat of the head to activate and is sulphate free. Radiant Browns also exist in some countries, but I don't know if they are as gentle or sulphate free.

You can also permanent dye right over the top of a heavy coconut oil soak to protect the structural proteins.

I use Garnier Nutrisse to take my hair from a very light brown to a dark brown. It's not that bad. The first time I used it my hair did feel kind of rough the first couple of washes, even though it looked the same when I used products. I PTed after a week and it looked much better. I've died it once more after that and it doesn't seem very damaged. I used a PT before dyeing, and my hair did not feel as rough afterward. I don't know much about going lighter, though.

My suggestion, if you're trying to avoid damage, is to use a demi-permanent dye. The only downside is that demis will not lighten hair, but they will change the tone of your hair beautifully if you want to add a caramel hue or whatever. They also gradually fade out, leaving no line of demarcation where your roots grow, and it lasts a long time. Any time you lighten your hair at all, you are lifting color out of the strands, and that will do more damage. Demis also happen to cover gray, if you have any.
