Waiting for your hair to grow out to your natural hue can take longer than you want to wait. This guide is about getting hair color back to natural after dyeing.
For the past year and a half, I have been dyeing my hair. The color ranges from light brown, to blonde, to an orange brassy color when it starts to fade. She has bleached my hair in order to do the balayage thing. I never maintained my hair and therefore, I would find myself coming back to get toner within 1-2 months. I hated this.
I went to the salon to fix it this Sunday and I told her I wanted to go back to my natural hair color. I then get out of the chair to realize I have jet black hair. Does this mean I will have natural hair within a month of two? Will this jet black color fade?
My natural hair color is a dark brown, not black. I've read that in order to go back to your natural hair color, I'd have to go black, but I'm not sure. Can someone help explain this?
No, it does not mean you will have natural hair in a month or two.
All hair color products fade to varying degrees. Now that they no longer contain paraphenylenediamine, they fade more than they did in the past. I'm assuming the jet black color applied to your hair was a permanent color. This color may fade only slightly, but due to the different degrees of porosity in your hair, (that being some bleached, some not), the color will not fade evenly.
" I've read that in order to go back to your natural hair color, I'd have to go black". That statement is untrue and utter nonsense.
There are situations where a client has his/her hair colored and is displeased with the results, and with corrective coloring had their hair returned to a color very similar to the original color. This type color correction is successful usually when the client has had a single color treatment.
With you having had several different color treatments, there is no known corrective color treatment that will return your hair to it's natural color, or anywhere close.
A very skilled color technician might be able to lift (remove) just enough of the jet black color so that the resulting color is closer to a dark brown. This is possible, however, the type product used and the length of time the product should stay on the hair is critical. If you consider this procedure, do not have the work done by anyone who will not do a strand test first. I repeat, If you consider this procedure, do not have the work done by anyone who will not do a strand test first.
The above method may bring your hair to a color you can 'live with' while your natural color grows out, but in all honesty, there is no chemical treatment that will return your hair to it's natural color. Like it or not, the only way you will get your natural color back is to grow it.
I heard there is some solution for getting your hair back to the natural color you were born with. My hair is dyed black. My roots are white. I do not want white hair.
There is no way you can get your hair back to it's natural color. As we age the hair looses it pigment. I don't like my grey hair either so I color it.
A few days ago I bleached my hair. It is now a bright platinum blonde/white, before I was a dark ash blonde. I hate it. Will my roots grow back my natural colour as this is the first time I ever dyed it? Also, would the hairdresser be able to get my natural colour back?
I colored my hair 2 months ago from black to brown at a salon. I don't like this hair color at all. I want to get back my natural black. What can I do? If I try a black color from any hair coloring brands from the super markets, does it have a chance to become black again? Kindly reply to me.
If you're really disliking the brown, what do you have to lose by dying it black?
My natural colour is auburn red. I have been getting bleached blonde highlights for years, but really want my natural colour back. Any advice on how to do this?
I would have a salon put my original color highlights in the hair and then get a cut into a cute short style that is most becoming to start working back to it's natural color. That way you get rid of damaged hair and it will get back to it's original color quicker shorter... Good Luck!
How long should I wait to dye my hair back to my natural dark brown? Basically what happened was 2 days ago my friend's mom who does cosmetology bleached dome strips in my hair so I could have highlights. My hair is naturally dark brown and I wanted caramel or like a bronze highlight in my hair. So she bleached the strips of blonde and then put the copper color we got from Sally's hair and beauty over the bleach. It was the closet thing I wanted to caramel.
When it came out it was a orangey color (like a brand new 2016 penny color) and I wanted more of a (1998) penny lol. And my friend told me to not put dark brown hair dye over it, but dark soft brown the next color up so my dark brown hair wouldn't be affected just the highlights would go darker. So I did it and yes I got darker highlights, but some of my hair turned grey. So now I have my natural dark brown, some blonde strips from bleach, some grey hairs (not a lot) and some copper colors (not as bright). Please help I just want to go back to my natural dark brown and be done with highlights! The first picture is what it looked like before I put the dark soft brown over it and the second is hard to tell I have anything, but it's what my hair is now. Please help!
I did a bit of research. Clairol does have a line of no lift colors (and has had for years. I had forgotten about it). The line is called Second Nature. I couldn't find a decent color chart, though. Sally's is bound to have one.
I recently got my hair colored, like some 5 days ago and I totally hate it. I asked for some caramel streaks, but she gave me some shitty brown streaks. They are not even streaks, she just colored my entire bottom part of the hair. It looks pathetic and I really wanna get rid of it. I have jet black hair naturally so I was wondering, can I color my hair black to get my natural looking hair back? I am also very scared since I don't want anything else to go wrong. I've also heard re-dyeing will leave your hair green.
Please suggest some advice.
Thank you so much.
Call the shop and ask for the name of the owner/manager. Ask to speak to him/her and explain the problem. Ask for a redo (not by the same beautician) or a refund. BE NICE. I know you're angry but being nasty will not help you get what you want. If you get nowhere and decide to do it yourself, try Nice'n Easy. Choose a color that is the same as your natural color. It will cover the lighter streaks. You may have to do it for 2 or 3 months until it has all grown out and been trimmed. The more often you wash your hair, the more often you will have to color. My color lasts 4-6 weeks.
Okay, so I have about elbow high hair. Earlier this year and in some insane idea I decided to bleach my hair. The natural color was black. My cousin did the whole process. It looked good for a while, but after a week my hair was awful! It was dry, frizzy, and damaged. Needless to say it was a nightmare!
So, I had a stylist chop off my hair, now its about shoulder length, but the ombre is still there.
So I colored my hair again. I've done some research that you need golden brown color for the blonde to go to natural brown, a black color would turn it green.
What should I do? I don't want to cut my hair shorter so what I'm planning is to dye all of my hair with the same color.
Suggestions please? Help me!
So my natural hair is honey blonde, but I dyed it a dark brown. I don't want to keep dyeing it, but want to turn it back to blonde. The salon said I'd have to bleach it! Is there a better more natural way to fix it?
I'm afraid if you want "natural," Emily, you'll have to let it grow out. It'll take a while, but your hair will be healthier than if you use bleach.
I dyed my hair medium brown in November of 2014 and my hair is naturally really blonde. Should I dye my hair my natural color or let it grow out?
I would have a salon color it as close to original color as can be while you are waiting for the real color to come back in. Easy fix really.
Last year, I started dyeing my dark brown hair a light blonde. Whenever I dye my hair, it gets lots of orangy tints, no matter what color I dye it. Later, I tried dyeing my hair a color close to my natural color, but it turned purple and then turned orange again. What do I do?
