Lindsay, my medium blonde hair doesn't hold any dark colors very well. Reds faded to brassy in no time, and brown faded to yucky dark blonde too. I've never tried dark, but I think for my hair it would be the same thing as red or brown. I'm sure you would keep some of the color, (I did) but the pretty stuff would wash out leaving me with this flat blaah leftover permanent stuff.

I don't know how healthy this is, but one time I decided to go red after having my hair bleached platinum for a year or so. When I got sick of the red, I tried to get some highlights so I could grow it out, the red absolutely WOULD NOT come out even with double volume bleach, especially at the ends. My hairstylist said it was because I had bleached all the natural pigment out of my hair, so the red really bonded to it. However, I don't know if I'd recommend doing this unless you want to stay dark for a long time. Because trying to get that red out (for my wedding) really fried my hair! I just had to leave it alone and cut it every 3 weeks or so until all the color and the damage grew off.
