My hair is naturally black and it lightened a little from the summer sun so I decieded to use a burgundy red color. I got Clairols Hydrience in the color Tropic. My hair just looks darker. No real burgundy color. I think I should have used 2 boxes because my hair is long and very thick. I might get the Herbal Essences color in Plush Plum instead. I'm gonna grab 2 more boxes and mix the together and see what happens. If it doesn't work it's back to black.
