I'm always dyeing my hair sporadically. My hair color usually reflects the mood I'm in for that moment. I decided to go dark for Fall/Winter and I chose a dark chocolate brown, which is the color I had for last Winter. In a couple of months, I'll re-dye it and mix with a different color to add more tones and depth. I do all my hair dyeing myself since I usually stay in the brunette family and I don't do anything too complicated. I also do my own highlights, including the ones I had before my current hair color. I don't trust salons after I was left with orange hair this one time.

When I dye my hair, I don't buy the box dyes. I buy the color and developer separately. It comes out cheaper and I also like it because I can mix shades to create my own custom color and I can control the developer level as well. The dyes are the same formula as box dyes, you just have more color choices and you can choose to mix them with a higher level developer. However, I don't recommend doing this unless you have some hair coloring knowledge or speaking with someone that's a hair color expert.

That was the same brand of dye and developer I used for my current color. Except that I used three bottles because I have a lot of hair and it's long as well. I used level 20 developer this time because I was going darker. This was my hair color before: 

And this is my hair color now: 

I also went to the salon afterwards and trimmed my hair and added layers, which is why it looks shorter in the front. I do several things to maintain my hair so that it could be healthy and not lose it's shine. I did a haircare regimen post a few months ago, you can go HERE to read it.
