    Hi Shiri,

    I actually just dyed my hair jet black a few weeks ago from a dark brown w/medium brown highlights. I do think curls with lighter or highlighted hair looks really nice and I have pondered over doing this myself for a while, but I'm just too chicken to go from dark to light and I know my hair will pay the price. My hair already has the tendency to be dry so a lighter color may never be an option for me. The lighter brown I had in my hair was as light as I was willing to go two years ago and with that I had to take special care b/c it didn't look as healthy as dark brown or black hair. It does look nice though – wish I could do it.

    My hair is dark auburn (dark brown with natural red highlights, whichever way you want to look at it). Not dyed.

    I dyed my hair red years ago, but that's long since grown out.
    3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.

    I'm salt & pepper, with a lot of salt. I've noticed in pics that my white/gray hair looks a little like highlighting for some reason. That's good enough for me.

    My hair is naturally a dark brown with reddish highlights in the summer. Its actually not really highlights, just a reddish mask over my hair with a few grays here and there. All my photos are of dyed hair.

    I have been dying it blue/black for about a year and a half and recently stopped as of this winter, my natural color is back for now.

    I have thought about letting it go and maybe even lightening it, but my hear says go back to the blue/black. We'll see....

    I dye my hair blue-black with an ammonia free, hydrogen peroxide free hair rinse. And have dyed it blue-black for many years now. I would love some sort of reddish highlights though..but I don't see it happening for me because I don't see how I could do it and not suffer damage to my hair. And I will never do Henna..ever.

    I have light mousey brown hair, which without my highlights I think makes the curls look rather unkempt and plain... the subtle highlights really bring out the definition imo :)
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] ... my big usual smile for multicultcurly :P

    :toothy4: 3 b/c bsl length ridiculously thick brown curls with blonde highlights

    I'm really like my curls but rarely wear my hair fully down as it isn't really styled and tends to go bushy

    ... really seeking an edgy indie style cut that suits my hair type, but wont make the move till I'm sure its right for me as I have been growing my hair to this point for so long :toothy4:
