My Hair Turned Out a Little Auburn

Today, I purchased some hair-coloring from our local WalMart Store. There is such a wide selection to choose from, which made it pretty hard for me to decide. I already know from a bad experience, buying dark brown isn't a good idea. Revlon makes the cheaper hair-dye, but I really prefer Nutrisse because it makes my hair color look more natural. I chose an ash/medium brown, which turned my hair a shade of auburn, which I'm not very happy about. Auburn hair is beautiful, but it's not a favorite shade, for me. Oh well, at least it's all one color and it's still fairly soft. My husband hasn't said a word, which means that he does approve. If Jay didn't like it, he would definitely let me know! So now this human guinea-pig, is a ravishing red head:)

@Courtlynn That's smart, because the salon girls know exactly what shade you'll end up with. When I use a dye from the store, it's never twice the same color.

@Courtlynn I've tried different kinds, Revlon, Loreal, Nutrisse, and other brands, too. They all turn out a different shade, than what's shown on the box.

My sisters both did their hair blonde and eventually, grew it out naturally brown.

@ridingbet Thank you:) As a young girl, I always wanted my hair to be a lot darker. It looked silly on me!

@ridingbet I don't look good with black hair, it doesn't look natural. My skin is very light.

Too bad you didn't show us a picture. My hair is auburn. I used to think it was dark brown, but it does and always has had red in it. So when I get it colored at the salon, I go back to my natural color, the one I was born with. Otherwise my natural color at the moment would be silver. I'm too young for silver, so I'm a beautiful auburn.

@just4him Yes, my hair has always had red highlights, even as a youngster. It was always dark brown, but in the sun, it looked like a shade of auburn. My natural color now is four different colors, black, brown, gray and white. Jay never complains about it, but I sure do!

@kobesbuddy It's tough getting old and seeing all that mixture of natural color. That's why I cover it. It makes me look older than I am, or want to be. I want to look young for as long as possible.

@just4him Absolutely! At 66 years old, I'd like to have one color of hair, so I don't look a lot older

I used to always dye my hair red. People always thought I was a natural redhead because my skin is so pale (three of my siblings are redheads.) My hair is naturally dark brown, and when I was little it was blonde. I've had my hair dyed just about every color under the rainbow, except I don't recall ever dying my hair gray or green. My favorite was when I had it dyed purple. It's been a few years since I last dyed my hair -- I keep debating whether I want to dye it again or not. I'm sure your hair looks lovely.

@Srbageldog As a teenager, I dyed my hair a couple times, to get a darker shade of brown. My skin is pale also, so it didn't look very natural, real dark. As a grown up, I've never dyed my hair, until the last five years. I never do it consistently, probably a couple times a year.

@kobesbuddy I always wanted to dye my hair fun colors as an adolescent, but my parents said no, I had to wait until I was 18 and then I could do whatever I wanted with my hair. (I did have my cousin dye my hair purple when I was 14, though, without my parents' permission...you couldn't really tell what color it was until I was standing in the sunlight, so it took my parents a while to notice. Otherwise it just looked dark.) Well, what they didn't tell me was once I was an adult, I couldn't just dye my hair however I wanted because most employers don't allow it!

@Srbageldog Yes, employers are very choosy, about hair-color! Also, some places refuse to hire someone, who has tattoos!

I bet you look great with auburn hair. I usually end up with a shade that is unusual when I try something a little lighter or a little darker.

@Corbin5 The side of the box shows a certain color to expect. When I'm all finished, my hair color is nowhere near that tone!

I've never tried dying my hair so I've never had to worry about a colour turning out to be an unexpected shade. I guess if Jay is happy there really isn't anything to worry about.

I need to recolor mine. I always buy the Clairol Age Defy because the grey comes back in mine so quickly with the regular ones. I really like the color. It looks good on you.

I am not using any color for my hair nowadays. My favorite was not there in the stores readily. Anyhow, it will be there on Wednesday. But, I will be on tour on that day. So decided to have my hair colored in another state viz., Banaras. Hope everything goes well.

I have to say I got more attention that ever when I was a red head. Of course I hated it because all my siblings are red heads, I was the odd one with light brown hair that turned white.

@andriaperry I try to get a rich, dark brown, but have never been able to. My sister does her hair red, which I really don't like, on her. Natural red hair is pretty, on someone else!
