MY THOUGHTS: Up until recently, I've never dyed my hair. Naturally, it's an extremely dark dark brown color but I felt like making it a little bit lighter. Revlon colorsilk had good reviews on makeupalley and only cost around $3 or $4 in most stores. It was easy to use and I'm pretty pleased with the results.
Since my hair is so dark, I used light ash brown to achieve a dark brown color. If you have dark hair and you're looking for a drastic change, box dye by itself might not be enough. This was good for the subtle change that I was looking for. My roots ended up a little lighter than the rest of my hair though.
After dying my hair, I didn't notice too much damage but it does feel a little bit dryer. The conditioner it comes with is AMAZING by the way. It made my hair feel incredibly soft and if they sold it on its own, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Comes with 2 gloves, conditioner, developer, & colorant
Before: My natural hair color was really dark brown, almost black.
After: Still pretty dark, but definitely a little lighter.
It really only looks this brown in really bright lighting.
