View Full Version : Attempted to dye my hair back to its natural color.

My most recent hair/bleach excursion left me with a strawberry blonde color. I really hated it, and my hair is getting SO SO SO FRIZZY beyond belief with all the bleach damage. I've definitely changed my mind about going all platinum. Not worth it in the end. :cool:

So...with one final hurrah I decided to try and dye it back to its natural color so I can grow it out properly. I miss the shine and thickness I used to have.

Anyway, here's what it looked like two days ago (before the dye):


lol I'm not that upset in the picture...kind of an inside joke. I had wanted a hair color like my friend (on the right), but as you can see we have different hair textures and skin tones...and mine just looks like crap in comparison, haha.

And here's pictures from tonight after I dyed it:



My natural color is on the left side of both pictures. The dye color I chose was "Dark Ash Blonde". I think it's the closest I can get, because I know if I go an ash brown, it comes out super dark. So...yeah. It's not exact, but I'm hoping it's enough to where it will be pretty painless growing out my roots. My natural hair has a tendency to look darker indoors, and much lighter outdoors. I guess that's typical of undyed hair, really.

Just thought I'd share. :)

Well I am not sure it looks much like your natural color but I think the color it turned out to be looks REALLY nice!

I too like the way it turned out. Looks like your natural hair is a tad darker (and prettier; natural hair to me always is). It should, however, be no problem growing out. Good luck with that! :D
