I'm a natural red head going grey. I wasn't sure which shade of hair dye to choose so chose this one and it's perfect for me. It's just enough red to lift my face. It covers the grey very well. I have used brown hair dye for years that I purchased from a health food store but changed to this product for it's natural ingredients. My daughter applies the dye for me and I have no problem wrapping my hair up for 3 hours. I wear green glasses against my red hair and it looks great. Dianne B.

*Please note - repeated use will see your colour become richer and in some cases darker. Once you achieve the colour shade you like on the lengths, simply apply to the roots only and do a full application every 4th or 5th time to boost the colour at the ends. This will save time and product and ensure you have an even colour all over.
