Returning to Natural Hair Color?

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?

Ultimately it's up to you. Hair grows 1-2 inches a month, so factor in how long your hair is and how willing you are to put up with the grow-out. Dying your hair something closer to your natural color will make the process more seamless, or have a stylist do a weave/highlights to help with the transition. A lot of people that decide to live with the grow out, cut their hair once the grow-out gets long enough.

I have this exact same issue. I stopped dyeing it back in January and actually used chemical color removers to strip the color at home. However, this just made it a slightly lighter brown. Currently, my roots are about an inch long and bright blond. I've been using John Frieda's Lightening Spray (essentially Sun-In) and that's helped blend the line a little better.


I have an appointment tomorrow to have my hair dyed back to blonde (maybe a little lighter than natural) with Olaplex. If you haven't heard of Olaplex, you need to. It sounds completely amazing and almost too good to be true. From what I've researched, it bonds the hair to fix damage you already have AND hang onto the color you put on it. The bleach dries it a bit but that goes away within weeks, unlike using it without the Olaplex. There's no permanent damage and it's how Kim Kardashian managed to go so light without all of her hair falling out.

So I'm really super excited to see something like my natural blonde again and not have much damage at all. Hoping for the best!

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.
