My hair is natural dark brown almost black. I decided to color my hair 6/26/12. I had an extra box of Garnier Nutrisse Cream in Sangria #56. I was hoping to get a vibrant red but that did not happen. My hair color looked the same only much more shinier. The red tones were only visable in the sun. I deciced to go to Sally's Beauty Supply. My intention was to buy Manic Panic or Punky Colors Semi-Permantant hair color. I used to use those all the time in high school. Thank goodness an employee walked up and asked me if I needed help. She recommended the Loreal Excellence HiColor for Dark Hair Only. She was extremely helpfull and knowledgeable. I took her advice and bought the color in Magenta and the developer in 30. She said the red shows up really well even on gray hair. I dont have to worry about the grey hair right now but I will keep it in mind. I was so scared to try this. I did not want to end up looking strange. I was so pleased with my new hair color. I love it and so does my husband. The color is noticble even if I am not outside. I think I will color my hair again in about 2 weeks but use the 40 volume developer instead.
