hi, you look like you suit a darker shade so i would be tempted to go for the plum colour i love that colour like cheryl coles! x

to be honest i would recommend going to the hairdressers because you seem to have quite dark hair and it may not end up with the desired plum colour at home..

however i have done it myself before, but i lightened it beforehand with a bleach lightener to make the plum colour show up a bit more & then i used a swarzkopf colour, i think it was permanent.

It can be quite hard to keep up a colour like that though since your roots do come through quite noticeable.

I like your blog by the way, ive started following it
i have my own blog :

Ive had reddish hair before and the problem i found with that was it was ridiculous to get out! It just wouldn't come out of my hair at all!
So i would say go for a non permanent to begin with

Non-permanent to see how you like the colour, plus it *should* have washed away before you end up needing your roots doing.
Also, go to a hairdresser and ask them. Any of them worth their salt will sit with you and discuss colours - some skin tones look ridiculous with certain types of hair colour. I wanted a dark brown shade but more reddy tones suit me better. It's not like you have to actually have to get it done there, just pump them for advice.

I think that the darker shade would look great on you because of your colouring, you look fab by the way.

I love your blog too.

Also a question, I like the Iced Truffle dye results, did it show any reddish tones afterwards? I'm dark brunette (I'm a natural brunette, that tried to go blonde but my hairdresser made it come out ginger so had to dye it back to brown) and desperately trying to rid the reddish tones that are there especially when the light hits it. Did you find Iced Truffle stopped the reddish tones?

When I was younger - much younger, I used to put pure henna on my hair. It was marvelous and everyone admired it and envied the rich auburn colour. It looks completely natural and just gradually washes out after a few weeks. It comes as a powder which you mix with water to make it a sort of loose cow pat consistency, then you just brush it all over your hair and leave it for a while. I can't remember exactly how long as it was years ago, had to stop using it when I started to go grey. My natural hair colour was a light golden brown, not as dark as yours, but I am sure the henna would look fantastic on your dark hair too. Incidentally, it has a very earthy smell when you put it on, just think how wonderful it will look when its done.
