My go to brand since a teen. The color on every box of Dark and Lovely Hair Color is true to color in one application. Leaves my natural hair and extensions vibrant and soft. The formula breaks the cuticle bonds well enough to lift extensions in one step or tone them after bleaching. I switch between this color and Sun Kissed Brown in the colder months.
This product worked well for me. It was my first time and I was nervous but the directions are pretty straight to the point and the box includes everything you will need, even gloves! My color came out perfect.
I used this product in my hair for the first time about a year ago and the color is still there. I loved it because I was going from dark brown hair to this and refuse to bleached my hair before hand but the color still out vibrant as ever !
Try Youtubing colored natural hair and you will see most of their hair routines for dry hair. I use shea moisture coconut and hibiscus line and it works great for me. Also try doing deep conditioning with an avocado olive oil and honey mask and doing hot oil treatments.
