sorry jut noticed your post. I have brown hair, with a very red tint in it and burn easily, i found that the accelerator made me burn alot quicker and then i didn't even tan. The best thing i found was a factor 2 tanning oil was really good and now go brown straight away as long as i use it. I'v got lots of freckles aswell and they don't recomend high factors for them apparently.

Hope this helps
