    Well I recently dyed my hair dark brown and wanted to go lighter so since my hair is so dark I went for almost a blonder color.Just look on the side of the box and pick which color your going for.It worked for me so maybe it'll work for you too it's worth a try.

    She can use sun in - with will leave it a shade lighter, don't use too much though... otherwise your hair will be lighter still

    Please do not use sun-in on your granddaughter's hair. In order to go from dark to light brown or blonde without the red/orange tones, it will require bleaching and toning. If you can't afford to go to the salon, try using L'Oreal Superior Preference Les True Brunettes. It will lighten dark hair a few shades without the brassiness.
