How to brighten hair color w/o dye?

Dye has pretty much ruined my hair so i did a big chop in august. My hair has been growing pretty fast and is starting to look very healthy and more curly.
I really don't want to use dye or do anything to ruin it again, but the color is starting to look blah.
Is there anything i can do to make it really bring out the color and brighten it a little without dye??

Black tea would darken, but hibiscus tea or raspberry tea would bring out red.

All these tea methods are gradual though.

I thought DevaBrown One Condition worked pretty well at brightening up my brunette hair- and made it shiny! They have DevaRed and DevaBlonde (I think they're called) for redheads and blondes. If you're CG, you might not like it since it has a cone in it. I'm mod-CG and the cone doesn't build up on me.

3a since going CG!
CG on 10/12/08. free of cones, sulfates, and shampoo! added shampoo bars 1/80/09.
using:
shampoo bars (wind blossom)
condish - burts bees super shiny
styling - confused and running out of products. TRYING LOOB!
trying: tweek...barely.
WAITING to try: Melting Gel...resisting the urge to become a PJ...kind of...
Dislikes: molasses and CK so unfortunately...
You can also try cassia if you want your golden tones in your hair enhanced. I have light brown hair and when I use cassia it seems to bring out golden highlights in my hair. I mix it with chamomile tea and some honey, which could also make it "brighter". Honey also lightens some people's hair.
Somewhere between a 2b/c and a 3a
