Can anyone recommend a good brand of hair dye (particularly for dark hair)?

My boyfriend at the moment has reddish hair. He wants a dark brown dye.

It needs to be permanent, but also look good.

It doesn't work when you have black hair and try to dye it bright blue with the 'Cosmic Blue' shade. I know a lot of idiots that have done that.

But I've used Schwarzkopf XXL for years, and tried several shades, I love it. (My hair's naturally dark blonde).

Nooo, XXL. I've been told it didn't work and faded after time, but as long as it darkens light hair I'll be happy. I was thinking of trying the bittersweet chocolate one. What colour is Stargazer, is that one dark?

Ah, I've just found out that Stargazer is a brand.

So do they do dark brown colours? Can you buy it in Boots?

I didn't have a lot of luck with XXL, it faded really quickly.
For dark brown, I usually use Boots 'Botanics' in bitter chocolate. Lasts well and doesn't have such a horrific stench of ammonia like most dyes do..

Yeah I use XXL Live. I had Cosmic blue hair when I was younger, dyed it from auburn to that, came out good.

Also used nice 'n' easy or something, with a black dye and a red eye (black hair with red stripe) and also just full black. Always came out well.
