Wishing to be red, Have no idea where to start...


hi, so my current hair is a medium to dark brown color 3b in front and 3a in back (i will include pictures below), and ive been contemplating going over to a red color in box dye. my question/issue/concern is that i dont know where to start or what would be best. my hair is quite stubborn when it comes to accepting colors or treatments like coloring. im looking to go a deep but subtle red color, much like Emma Stone's shade; and im also looking for a brand that will not damage or better yet moisturize my hair. pretty please, if you could give me any advice on which shades to use or what brands i can use to minimize damage i would be so happy. thanks for anyone with advice

I don't really know anything about hair color. I've used Natural Instincts before, which if I remember correctly is demi-permanent and won't lift color (lighten), will only deposit.

Currently I use henna, which is permanent and is supposed to be good for your hair, but most people recommend doing a deep-conditioning treatment afterwards. Henna also only deposits color.

You should check out hennaforhair.com. You can look at real people's mixes and results, and they also have a forum.

Depending on the color you want, you may actually needs a color that lifts, though.
3a/b? hair, CG off & on since Oct. 08
Garnier Fructis has a boxed dye that is for dark brown hair and it got my med dark brown to that exact color.

Or you can try henna

I actually came to this board wanting this exact color. I'm going to try out a color today and I'll let you know how it goes.
Is your hair already colored? You may be better off getting it done professionally then using an at home kit to maintain it. I had mine dyed deep blood red last night and I love it! Prior to this I was blonde and it will fade very quickly so I'll be using de Lorenzo nova colour shampoo to maintain it in between colour touch ups.
3B, Fine texture, normal or low porosity (I'm not sure)
