Light to Dark, the Hair Issue.

I have a love/hate relationship with my hair colour. I have the kind of hair that gets lighter at contact with the sun - I love the different shades I end up with. I hate how many different shades I have in my hair, and the huge contrast between the shades. It's a very Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde situation.
Now that summer's here, I worry that it would get even lighter. It also gets very damaged, burnt and dried out so I have to be very careful.. A few years ago when I was living in Australia it got burnt to death from the Aussie sun and took forever to nurse back to health.
 
Before

To try and save my hair, and also 'cause I was looking for some kind of change I woke up 2 days ago and decided to dye it. I'm not a fan of using hard dyes and damaging my hair even more, plus I wouldn't want to have to go through the long process of growing it back so my hair stylist suggested something much less permanent which I first tried out a couple of months back - as you can see here and here. The dye starts out very dark then fades back to the original hair colour in a period of 1-2 months depending on how often you wash it/time spent in the sun.



After
It IS very dark right now, even darker than it looks in the pictures, but I do love it! Morticia Adams is one of my style icons after all *snaps fingers*,
