    Dark brown. It was darker when I was a child but even then it was a dark brown.

    My natural hair color is sort of in between. More like a washed out version of black.

    Very black. Whenever I see a stylist for the first time they ask if I dye it.

    My hair is a ridiculous off-black color. Now that I am older, jet black rinses are too harsh for my complexion/skin tone. However, my hair is so dark that I would have to use bleach to lighten, which I am not willing to do.

    Very dark reddish-brown. It looks like deep auburn in the sun.

    Dark dark brown. Not dyed right now or anything. It used to be light brown when it was unhealthy. I’ve always wanted black hair though.

    Mixed dark brown and medium brown. Turns red in the summer. The last time I dyed my hair black, my new growth looked dusty. My hair is currently dyed a ginger red.

    Dark dark brown. The ends and crown can get a little bit lighter in the summer with sun damage as well.

    Really? Is the color difference very noticeable?

    Honestly just curious.

    My hair is black. When I was relaxed, it became brown over time, but with each TWA, I can see my natural texture and colour way more.
