Oh ffs... just dyed my hair after growing all the old dye out and
I have medium brown hair. Total middle of the road natural hair colour that's a bit brown and a bit muddy dishwater.
So, from previous experience I know if I get a medium brown hair colour it can go a bit too dark on my hair and leave me looking washed out.
So i have put on a nice n easy pale brown colour. Not golden, not warm or chesnut, just plain brown.
My hair, inexplicably, looks like [[http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=copper+hair+colours&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=4w6MUamjKKGP0AXw_4D4Ag&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=667#imgrc=aDPwCqYrpsGZ0M%3A%3BJVPumpmQ3N-PhM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.frm2013.com%252Fattachments%252Fmoda-731d1324440563%252Fmajuscule-occupation-hairstyles-that-hold-wonderful-apologize.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.frm2013.com%252Fmoda%252F119-majuscule-occupation-hairstyles-that-hold-wonderful-apologize.html%3B344%3B344 this
My hairdresser just pisses himself laughing at me. Heknows my haircut is my treat and getting it colour corrected is a bit over budget at the mo, he'spretty cool and tells me which dyes will sort out errors i've made in the past. Bugger. Am a very drab dresser and don't seek attention with my appearance so feel a bit like I have glam rock hair.Fingers crossed a good cut will help!
I've dyed my hair 4 times in the space of a week before & my hair was fine, I used nice n easy permanent colours too!
If you really can't live with the copper colours ( I was copper colour last year, loved it) then you could try light ash brown in nice n easy semi permanent, that way you won't risk it going too dark and it will tone down the copper tones.
Even dh,who is the most diplomatic man in the worls and doesn't care what I look like said 'Oh I didn't notice you'ddyed your haor.. its a nice colour, but, er, you do really suit darker hair, I'm not saying that looks awful its just darkl hair is you, really'.That confirmed all my suspiciosn and I am back in my comfort zone with a nice n easy medium ash bron on my hair
Luckily I don't use and other treatments or hairdryers or straightners on my hair so its it pretty good condition and seems to have coped with the two hair dyes!
