I have been getting the same honey colored highlights in my hair for years. While I like the color, I have been considering going darker-a sable brown. My hair is long,with long layers and is thick. It is naturally a medium brown (I think!) My eyes are brown and my skin is light olive toned. I have had the same hair style and color for a long time and think it is time to do something different. I do want to keep it long. My hair is such a noticeable part of me I am nervous about making this change. I dont want to look drab and boring. However in recent photos of myself, the blond looks like too much, even though it doesnt when I look in the mirror. Also my hair is getting very dry at the ends and I am worried the highlights are really damaging it. Any help or advice???
