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.

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.

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*,
