thanks for the reply. i did some research tho and i found if it is unopened, and hasnt been exposed to hig heat, it is good for 3 years.
 i think you would look good in the link that has the 13 in the address. im not sure who the girl is but the brown is very pretty. it is the first link in the series.
 darker hair will make your green eyes stand out more. the style the girl has is pretty cool too.  good luck with whatever you choose. punk

yeah, as long as it is un opened, it usually lasts a while.

Hair Dye
When to toss: After 24 months. The consistency and chemicals change over time, and the dye loses its ability to color your hair and may leave splotchy patches, says Marcy Cona, director of education and shows for Clairol Professional.

Hydrogen Peroxide
When to toss: After six months if it's been opened; three years otherwise. To test whether it's still effective: "Pour some into the sink-if it fizzes and bubbles, it's good," says Marc A. Sweeney, Pharm.D., an associate professor of clinical pharmacy at Ohio Northern University. Expired hydrogen peroxide is ineffective but not harmful.

Also There is a number (expiration date) Or Number that leads to the date on the website. I can't remember what it is called at the moment. manufacture number

Another thing that I read is that Color or hair "stuff" that comes in metal containers can eventually leach the "metal" off of those containers & lead to some freaky effects.
