I Cate dyed my hair with a boxed, out-in-28-washes color. "Spiced Cider" to be precise. I liked it best right after it was done; I know it'll lighten (and hopefully not get too orange on me, but I'm prepared) as it fades. I think I might go for a permanent color (perhaps deeper/darker [it's really RED in the sun]) next time.
Thoughts? Tell me what you really think, if you liked it better before then say so (MOTHER!). If you think you'd like it better a different color than say so.
