I have medium brown hair. I have been getting it done by my hairdresser at her home for a couple of years now. Although she does cut me a break, it is still expensive. I have tried coloring my hair at home several times, but can't seem to get the roots to come up to the shade that is on the rest of my hair. I want to go about a medium golden brown. Nothing too extreme, just a few shades lighter. My hairdresser states it takes my hair a long time to come up. Any ideas? You can see my haircolor in the picture. I am the one in the blue sweater.
