        It was really easy. I dyed my hair myself for the first time and everything was really good. It's cheaper than at salon more than 10 times and i spent the same time as I would spend at salon. And I was home.
        So I will never ever dye my hair at salon.

          I am naturally a dark blonde and I could no longer afford salon highlights. I began doing my roots all over about 2 years ago and this is the best! Many 'box dyes' did not lift enough and left my hair orange at the roots, even level 10s. This gives a great even, all over 'yellow/golden' color and I am ok with that until I can afford highlights again. I DONT RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANYONE THAT IS DARKER THAN A DARK BLONDE. It is fairly gentle and has not caused me excessive damage. I dont have any gray hair so I don't know how it covers gray.

                  I usually go the bleach and toner route to lighten my roots, but I didn't have time to go the beauty store and wanted to give my hair a break from bleach so I chose this box. It lightened my roots enough to get me by for a while, and my hair isn't too brassy (I'm a natural dark dirty blonde). Also, it's a pretty natural-looking flow between my roots and the rest of my hair. I would buy this again if I was in a rush and just wanted a quick lift.

                        A:

                        Hi Madonna! Thanks for asking about our Excellence Creme. We recommend staying within two levels of your natural hair color. So if you have dark brown hair the lightest you could go without seeing orange would be a Light Brown #6.
