My hair is a very dark mahogny-red color at the moment. The problem is, I’m a natural blonde, and in the summer time, I like my hair light and curly – very low maintance and looks fantastic after a swim in salt-water. I figured I should start now to have a nice color by the summer, but I don’t want to look like a carrot or a fake bleached-out barbie in the mean time! Also, I don’t really want my hair to fall of.
What steps should I take to get a nice, brass-free color?
