I switched from #115 (6N) "Natural Lighter Brown" to #116 "Light Neutral Brown" thinking that it wasn't going to make a big difference, well it did, #115 is the ultimate brown, it looks better than any salon dye, it has tons and tons of highlights and dimension, it looks even better when it fades weeks later, the color is a milk chocolate with caramel, #116 on the other hand is a very blah brown, a mousy brown with no highlights, more like a flat medium brown leaning towards dark brown, it burned my scalp from the minute that I put it on, hopefully it will fade so that I can change it back in a few months, I read a review that said that this particular color makes a woman invisible, she was 100% right, never again.
Other shades that I might try-#115A (6.5GN) "natural lighter golden brown" or #114A (6.5G) "natural lightest golden brown"
Update: August,2016- I was using #115 religiously for over a year but my hair was getting too light with very brassy roots, so I decided to try this color again, they changed the formula and the picture on the front, this time it burned only for the first five minutes, left the color on for 35, I wanted to make sure it was going to cover my very brassy roots. My hair looks very shiny and my husband calls this color "chocolate cake", I knew it was going to be a medium to dark brown because of my previous review, in daylight is a natural medium brown, with no red/orange and a slight gold tone, it took all the orange tones/highlights and lightened my dark brown roots to a warm neutral brown, also it covered all my grey hair which #115 doesn't, I still think this color needs more "oomph" since this one does not produce any highlights but right now I'll take boring over orange. On a positive note, the line between my natural haircolor and #116 is minimal, I usually go two months with #115, maybe I can do a full three months with #116.
Update: one month later and this color is going super strong, no fading, still prefer the tone that #115 gives my hair, #116 has a brown/purple undertone

I've been coloring my hair for over 20 years in salons and at home. This shade is by far my second favorite color on me. My favorite was a custom red my aunt created for me but she passed away. I have medium olive skin and I find a lot of shades either make me look sallow or washed out. I don't like ash tones or golden tones. Most if not all shades listed warm will pull brassy on me or give me red tones. All ash shades will turn my hair flat and very dark. My natural hair color is very dark brown (about 1 shade lighter than black) and neutral. This particular hair color is perfection for someone that wants a neutral brown. This didn't turn my hair red or brassy. It also lightened my hair to a nice medium brown shade. My hair is coarse and I have several grey hairs so it takes longer to absorb dye. I leave this dye on for about 45-50 minutes before washing it out. I'm always very happy with the results for this particular color. It covers my greys nicely and longer than other brands. Another big bonus with this hair color is that I don't get a ton of breakage after rinsing out the color. I just get my normal hair loss which is about 5-7 strands. Results I get from this hair color is even color payoff from roots to ends. My hair doesn't look damaged, it looks shiny and it never looks flat with this shade.
