I try to get my hair done about every 8 - 10 weeks and sometimes I even go up to 12 weeks. I have the great pleasure of being very gray headed. If I were to completely let it go I would be about 80% gray. PS I am not even 35 yet!! This means I have to stay on top of my hair color and also be budget friendly. I start to need a touch up at about 4 weeks. If I am going really long between I will use the root touch up and if it's going to be more towards the 10 -12 weeks than I use the root touch up at 4 weeks followed by the whole head kit at around 8-9 weeks.
Root Touch Up: L'Oreal Root Rescue: Dark Brown (7.00)
Whole Head: L'Oreal Healthy Look Creme Gloss (9.00): Medium Brown Truffle
I like this one because it only takes 10 minutes.
Good Housekeeping gave this hair color great reviews for brunettes. I am going to give it a try next time and see how it does. Here is the link to this article. It breaks it down by best color for hair shades. Just in case your not a brunette.
Revlon Colorsilk (4.00): Dark Brown
