    Going from blonde to dark you will need to do 2 back to back semi's or permanent colours. For the first colour pick a shade darker than the desired shade as it will go on lighter anyway, and it has to have a bit of red in it so it doesn't go green( that's if your wanting brown as end result). Second colour do about 2-3 weeks later and just pick the shade you want doesn't have to be darker, then you should be right and it should last longer. But reds are a fashion colour and will tend to fade quicker than the others. And make sure you use treatments at least once a week. Hope that helps

    I went from Barbie blonde to my natural dark brown.
    First I did red. The next day I did a chocolate brown. Worked perfectly.
    It was a hairdresser that told me to put red in first.
