  • I use the kit they have out which has the highlight dye and the hair color dye out. It's about 14 bucks or so for the kit. Very useful to me.

  • I like garnier nutrisse...good price...good selection....good results....good grey coverage (which is a BIG plus to me) I have used most shades of red or brown at one point or another...have never went with the blonde color since I dont think I could pull it off, however I do know you have to be careful with any hair color when doing "blonde" shades if your hair is not currently can end up with a "brassy" or reddish look.

  • Revlon Color Silk. Less than 3 bucks. I've been using it for over 20 years---the color is TRUE and there is a packet of conditioner in the kit that is EXCELLENT! Nicest stuff I've ever tried!

  • I have colored my hair a lot of the years and I have to say that I really love garnier nutrisse. I used different brands, but after I used garnier nutrisse, I found that my hair was really soft and the color was just what I wanted. I would recomend trying that one first and see how you really like it. Not 2 people have the same hair color, style, or texture. This makes it really hard for anyone to tell you what the best for you would be. I hope this helps you out!
