Return your original hair color back

I’m sure you know someone who has changed their hair color. Maybe it was a bet. Perhaps they wanted to feel more confident about something in their life. Or maybe they just felt like changing things up for the sake of change! Whatever the reason, there are some definite pros and cons when it comes to dyeing your hair – but what if you want to go back? I have compiled a list of ways to help you get back your natural brunette or blonde locks with ease.

Here are some tips on how to go back to your natural hair color without it being too much of an inconvenience.

  • Get a haircut before dying it, so the new color blends in more easily with what’s already there.
  • Select colors from the same company as the dye you used for your highlights or lowlights, as they should be compatible and not cause any extra damage.
  • Be careful about bleaching out all of the old colors if you’re going forward with a lightening process; this can leave visible roots, which will require additional coloring.
  • Try using an organic dye like henna or indigo. This way, you’ll know exactly what is in the product and avoid any harsh chemicals.
  • Use a clarifying shampoo once every 1-2 weeks for about two months until your blonde starts fading away again.
  • Go on a detox diet that includes plenty of vegetables, fruit, water, and whole grains. This will regulate hormones that may be causing the change in hair color (source).
  • Consult with your doctor about any medications

Go back to natural hair color without damage

It’s no secret that many women go through an entire rainbow of hair colors in their lifetime. Some take the plunge and change it to a bold hue like purple or pink, but most will head back to their natural color at one point or another.

Many people are also looking for ways to make sure they don’t damage their hair while changing the color again. So here are some tips on how to keep your locks healthy when you’re dying them jet-black or neon green.

Did you know that the darker your hair is, the more likely it will return to its natural color? Well, it’s true! The reason behind this phenomenon is because dark hair has a higher concentration of melanin. So as time goes on and new hairs grow in with exposure to lightening agents like sunlight or chlorine water, they become lighter than the ones before them.

So if you’re ready to go back to your natural color but don’t want to damage your locks further by bleaching them all out again, keep reading for some easy ways.
