Who makes a dark golden brown hair color?
Ive been using Hydrience 'Sable Cove.' But its too reddish. I have no natural red in my skin or hair, Im all gold tones. Hydrience 'Golden Bay' is too light. I could mix 'Golden Bay' with a darker brown, but all the other browns have red in them....
Can I mix 'Black Pearl' with 'Golden Bay' to make a dark golden brown????
I don't have an answer for you. I just what to say 'what???' to the fact that Sable Cove makes your hair *red*. It makes mine jet black. How weird.
No, I said its too reddish. Its very dark brown with reddish undertones. I want gold undertones. If undertone is the right word...
I'm so glad I happened upon this thread, because I thought I was going out of my mind. I've been using Clairol Natural Instincts in Tweed, shade 14, which they describe as 'Light Ash Brown.' When I use it my hair comes out chestnut. I decided that the shade was too dark and tried the next lightest shade, number 13, Suede, which they describe as 'Light Brown.' It came out a bit lighter on the roots, but the rest of the hair shaft turned out darker and just as red. I would love to get a slightly lighter shade with slightly less red in it, but at this point I'm gunshy. I'll probably go back to Tweed because at least I'm used to it. Or should I stick to Suede now?
If you mix black with anything, you'll just end up with black. Black is the most difficult to get rid of once it's in your hair. (Personally, I like it in my hair.)
If you want to get rid of the red that comes through when you are coloring your hair, use an 'ash' (green) color or add a drabber, which counteracts the red.
Revlon used to make one, Super Lustrous, 4G Tortoise Shine (dark golden brown). It's no longer made but I have found it at stores such as Odd/Big Lots and Mazol's.

This might be right
It sounds like we have similar hair color and mine tends to get auburn tones when I dye it. I have only had it done professionally, but yesterday my stylist used Majorel (not sure of spelling, it might be a loreal product). She lightened my base at the roots with a golden medium brown/blond. This time she used #8, which looked more blond than I am used to. Given that my hair is so dark, the $ 8 was perfect and she added some carmel/golden blond/brown highlights with it. We finished with a clear glosser to add shine and condition. You can add some color to the glosser to tone the highlights if you need to.
Of course, if you live in a big city this could be expensive. Where I live in the midwest it cost about $50.
Thanks for the information! I don't know whether this will help the original poster, but I'm copying it to my notepad and keeping it for future reference.
FWIW, I had my hair cut today
