COLORING YOUR HAIR - A FASHION DO? IS THE RISK WORTH IT - I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW!





I have a confession to make...I've never colored my hair. Why? Just plain scared, but this editorial from Another Magazine is making me think twice! Secretly I've wanted too, oh I would die for dark red hair!!! What color hair have you been craving to take a risk with? Do you color your hair.. best thing you've ever done or really is it too much work?





I love that the color of the hair matches the clothes, that would be ideal.
If you have any advice for Lil' me I would appreciate it.

Just in case you're wondering my hair is dark brown and thick as hell.

Happy Friday!

Do it! Your hair is dark, so you could wash in a red and get a very black-cherry feel without being too much different.

That said, when you don't want to be that color anymore, your hair is dark enough that you could just dye it back to normal. ;)

I've been dying my hair since I was 14! I'm blonde, so it' more dramatic on me. I've had a couple of disasters, but hair grows out :D

As someone who's just now stopping dying their hair crazy colours like blue, pink, and purple, I'm gonna have to say "DO IT!". They do make temp colour specifically for dark hair, too, so you could experiment without panic. :3

I want to put pastel colors in my hair, as well. It reminds me of this doll I had as a child, where you would put her wand in the freezer, then rub it on her hair, and her hair would turn pale pink - I adore her.

I say do it, my love!! :)

I wanted to do this several weeks ago with purple streaks and now I'm sort of kicking myself for being right ahead of a trend and not going for it. :/ The girl on F21's homepage--her hair is pretty much exactly what I had in mind.

I have naturally very blonde hair. I currently highlight it with some golden blondes and reds. I dyed it dark red once and it faded really fast. I've always wanted to dye it dark brown just to see what it would look like but I'm afraid it would just fade too fast like the red did. Since you have darker hair though, I say go for it! If you don't like it, you can always change it back.

Thank you thank you for all of your comments and input! I will be doing some intense research .. thanks for the input about the wash in color.. I might try that first just so I don't freak out!

speaking of... i have a box of hair dye in the bathroom right now calling my name. my roots are about 4" long right now.

in other news, i totally saw a brooklyn hipster sporting the tavi- like blue hair today.

good luck with your hair dying adventures!

I wish I could tell you that I've colored my hair and it's the best thing ever... but the truth is I'm in the same camp as you. Never colored and torn on whether I even want to :)

But, I think with dark hair red would look really good and could be covered fairly easily if you didn't like it. so, my vote is go for it!

thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

I had never dyed my hair either, and last year, with a new hairdresser, I decided to try. Now, my hair is super-healthy and shiny because it has never been dyed, and rarely even blow-dried. To keep it that way, my hairdresser suggested a glaze - this coats the hair, without penetrating the hair shaft like dye does, so it actually protects the hair. A clear glaze just imparts extra shine, but a colored glaze, especially on dark hair, gives a subtle highligt. I tried orange, cherry red and purple - which is the one I ended up liking the best. Very subtle with indoor lighting (so still ok for my office), but when a shaft of sulight hits my hair, it blazes violet. It's suppoed to last about 6-8 weeks, bu tmine usually stays purple for about 3 months. Get an old towel for at least the first week of hairwashing, though,as your scalp, and therefore your shower and your towel, will be stained purple for a least several washings!

I first had my hair colored when I was still in college going from golden blond to night-in-Main-black and totally loved the result. Got bored with the color eventually, though, and made another twist going dark red. Been doing it for a few years now and it feels great! I guess I just found my true color.
En bref: if you feel like changing your hair color - do it, it is so worth it!
