Yup, that's mine too. It's naturally light ash brown, but I dye it a darker, richer, chocolate brown.

Munequita has BEAUTIFUL curls!!
I just did a search on her.
So if I have the same color as she has, am I black,onyx, jet black?
( I am from South India)
Whats the difference between those shades?

I am totally jealous of red hair, which I knowI will never have.
With my dark skin, that is just too Lil"kim
I like black hair, but you can hardly experiment with color.

I've always had blonde hair. When I was little it was almost white it was so blonde but now it is just a light blonde color. In most of the pics my hair is still wet so you can't really tell how light it is. I don't think I could get highlights or dye it though because of the heat styling

I had white-blonde hair as a child, and it gradually darkened. It was still kind of a dark blonde when I was in my 30s, but now the natural color is a drab, ashy brown. The inner me is a blonde! So, I get highlights. I like brown hair, but not the shade I have.

I picked brunette but it is light with some blondish-ness. it's not dyed or highlighted but it has many colors/shades in it. looks different depending on the light, my clothes, the weather, etc.... as do my eyes. so weird

My natural color was a very white blonde when I was little that darkened into a very unflattering dishwater blonde with a slight red tint. I used to dye it blonde but found that red is much more flattering on me, so I now dye it Strawberry Blonde. It comes out much redder than blonde so it works well. Most people don't even know I dye regularly.

Mine did the same thing. I was born with black hair (or maybe very dark brown) but it was quickly replaced with white-blond wispy curls. It turned straight and got darker, but was still definitely blond until around the time I entered high school. Then it was mostly brown with blond streaks, and it turned curly again around that time too.

It's gotten progressively darker since then. Up until last year, it could still arguably be called dark blond or light brown, but ever since I cut it off to donate it, it's just brown. But I still like the color.

I voted blond. I was very, very blond as a child.

It's gotten considerably darker with age, but it's still definitely blond. Not light brown yet, but I honestly feel it's still getting darker. In another ten years, it'll be black

Though, in my hair's defense, it only takes a bit of encouragement from the sun to lighten up quite a bit. Right now--with the cumulative effect of a full summer of sunlight--is my blondest time of the year.

I have a medium brown with lots of natural red highlights. So many in fact, when I'm in the sun there is a reddish shine coming off of my hair. ~~jax

Im just plain mousey...cant really say if its a mousey dark blonde or a mousey light brown b/c its darkened (and gotten some greys!) since having kids.
I am in the process of trying to kick the hair dye habit...but its SOOOOO HARD!!! Want to try to match up my length to my roots with RC color but to tell you the truth I dislike my real color so much Im having a hard time doing it even tho I know how bad the other dye is for my hair AHHHHH

My hair was reddish brown more on the side of red or auburn when I was little. Now it is reddish brown more on the side of brown but you still see red streaks and highlights especially in the summer. Its not a super dark brown - I guess it is medium brown, like maybe a light chestnut. My mother has very dark brown hair and my father has light brown hair so I split the difference I guess.
