Caramel is a flattering highlight color for dark brown hair. These highlights add a subtle and natural look. By using a shade that is similar to the dark brown color, both shades blend seamlessly.
Newly colored hair is often coarse and needs to be treated specially. To keep highlighted hair healthy and long lasting, it is important to use shampoo, conditioner and treatments made for color-treated hair. Avoid using heat on newly dyed hair, because it may make it more fragile. Wear a hat or avoid direct sunlight to also make highlights last longer; the sun causes hair color to fade.
