My FAVE Products! 2 Comments Melissa Gilderman 2 months ago Reply I like your facts and ideas very much. I just dyed my hair a vibrant medium auburn red. I think I wanna go back to somewhat of my natural color which is a medium to dark brown with natural red tones. What color do you suggest and developer to get close to that? I don’t wanna do it dark chocolate brown and then it coming out almost or black. Thank you! Hollee Wood Post Author 2 months ago Reply I would just probably do a tone close to what you want but maybe a smidge lighter to make sure it doesn’t turn out too dark….but if the red is truly a “medium” shade, it shouldn’t be too dark. You can always go darker but not lighter, so it’s better to go too light to start. Good luck! Write A Comment Cancel Reply Sign me up for updates!
