finally found my perfect dark brown!

I've been loving revlon colorsilk - super easy to use, non-drying, cheap, etc. - but the dark brown is a touch too dark and the medium ash brown is way too light. So I mixed the two! And it's perfect! I'm so excited! It's just the tiniest bit lighter than my natural color, but no brassiness and my greys are completely covered. Whee! Success! FINALLY!

    I know it's been a while since you posted - but do you still like the Colorsilk? Also - what was your formula for mixing the two colors?

    How is the condition of your hair after using it? I'm currently trying to fix my dried out hair from at-home color, but I need to fix the color as well. I'd just like to find something that won't hurt it any further.

    Any other advice??

    Thanks so much!
