I use Revlon ColorSilk. Yes it's the "cheap" brand but I personally think it works better then salon. Now if your looking to do fancy highlights and frosting I would go to the salon. But for simple one color, or two-tones you can do it at home! Good luck!!
A pro is the way to go but it cost from $50.00 and up.... Well worth it, but if you can't afford a pro all the time, you can do it yourself to start off..most dyes act the same way..it is how you apply it that can ruin your look.You need to keep the dye on the roots..not the hair itself,or the tips will grab the color .The tips are easy to take color but not the roots so that is why you might have a color difference as a result. You should go to a pro as often as you can afford so she can adjust your color properly.

There are usually three types of hair dyes; the permanent which colors the hair for good , semi-permanent which last up to 20-30 days of washes and there is the temporary which lasts as long as a week or less. To know which is the best color for you consider your hair type, complexion and eye color and you can visit http://www.thebeautybiz.com/80/article/hair/hair-dye-choose-right-color to guide you more on this.
If you can't afford a salon go to a cosmetology school. The instructors choose the correct color and then if you want to do it yourself next time you can usually "bribe". The student for the name and brand of color for next time. The "bribe" is also called a decent tip. Good luck from A former cos teacher.
