So out with the light hair color and onto the darker color. I used Tints of Nature in 3N, this is a permanent hair dye that I purchased from Whole Foods. It is ammonia, resorcinol, and paraben free. It also has certified organic ingredients.
My hair still is lighter in the front where the highlights were, but it's a lighter brown which I like a lot! My hair still has dimension but it's not a stark contrast as it was before.
