my hair is a dyed REALLY dark brown and last night i tried dying it an auburn color, and on the box it said it could take it from dark brown/black to that color, and it literally did nothing it looks exactly the same, so my question is, are there any boxed hair dyes you can get that will help me make this transition? have you used it?

  1. I don’t know what your natural hair colour is, but in most cases box hair dye cannot dye over other box hair dye, especially when going from dark to light colours.You’ll have to bleach the dyed dark brown colour out and then dye again to get the new colour.

    I’ve got natural, very dark brown (almost black) hair and I frequently dye my hair shades of auburn. Garnier 100% Colour in the really red shade (666 Intense Red) has worked well for me, as has Loreal Feria in the extremely red shade, and they both give me a red/brown shade under light.

    My favourite box dye, though is Schwarzkopf Brilliance Luminance, which is formulated especially for dark hair. I use Red Passion L43 and sometimes Ultra-Violet L60, which gives me pretty much the same result as the Red Passion. As it fades it becomes a nice auburn colour.
