I cannot say enough good things about Herbashine. I have used the shade Brownish Black twice now and oh my word, my hair is always so soft, light and healthy feeling afterwards that I simply cannot stop touching it. The brownish black shade is lovely. It shows as black, but in the sun or under bright light, golden brown hues show through, giving it a very dimensional and natural look. I love it. I have also just tried the shade Darkest Warm Brown and am equally as pleased.
