To go darker I do a series of lowlights a few times over two or three weeks, depending on when my days off work are. I always do one or two protein/moisture treatments a week so that's usually a good opportunity to add a little something extra if I notice my curls are lacking bounce after a few days of the new shade. After I'm happy with the coverage then it's just maintenance every 6 to 8 weeks.
