I want to color my hair a light medium brown. My hair I'd naturally dark brown but I have had it dyed. I recently had all the color stripped so now I'm left with a medium brassy orange color to my hair. I guess my questions are
How do I get it to light or medium brown with the state it's in?
Secondly, how would I maintain the roots with the light medium brown?

I'd rather do these things myself because every time I go to the salon, I never get the results I want. I don't want any highlights I just want an overall medium to light brown hair color.
I was considering using a 10 developer with bleach to lighten to a caramel brown. I need help ladies 😖
Thanks in advance
