Should You Dye Your Hair Back to its Natural Color?

We’re always looking for simple ways to save money while still being fashionistas. We love sample sales, free products, coupons, and consignment shops. We also love great lipstick, fresh shades of eye shadow, and buying a new hair accessory (or two or three).

Of course, it’s hard to have it all so we brainstormed one of the simplest ways to enhance natural beauty without breaking the bank. And, bam, the answer came: let’s go back to our roots (and we don’t mean traveling to your hometown).

Yes, some of us at TBF have dyed our hair back to its natural color. There are no more $200 trips to the salon, no more pushing around our part trying to hide growth, and a new love of slick back ponytails (since we’re not worried about the one inch thick color along our hairlines.)

Of course, dying your hair (esp. dying it back) is a major decision so we’ve gathered a list of pro’s and con’s to help you see if this is the best choice for you. This list really pertains to those of you who use a stylist for hair coloring, not a box.

Pros and Cons of Dying Your Hair Back to its Natural Color

How many times have you sat in the stylist’s chair, checking your watch and hoping you can make it to your meeting on time? If you spend 2-3 hours getting your hair done every 6-8 weeks, it can add up to almost an entire 24 hour period every year! That’s not including the time it takes you to schedule an appointment and drive there. That could be a whole vacation day, time with your family, or several much needed naps.

    Uhgh no for me. The reason I started coloring my hair in the first place is because I hate my natural hair color, which resembles mouse fur.

    I just went through this whole struggle recently. My hair has been blond since middle school, and I’m 33 now. I have no idea what my natural hair color even is! I read somewhere that the best, most flattering hair color for a person is the color they had when they were a toddler.

    Anyway, I added dark back into my hair, a warmer brown and a neutral brown, then highlights, with the overall effect of darker hair after I had decided to color my own hair with a “Supreme Blond” color kit. (Orange?) I love it. My stylist said if I went all brown, one color, it wouldn’t even reflect my natural hair color because I have natural highlights and around my face is much lighter than underneath. Anyway, although it’s tempting to go “natural” natural hair would have natural dimension and one shade of box color would not (no matter what it says on here).

    Hello,

    I am currently natural. I’ve been natural for about 3 years now, with the exception of a “mild” relaxer once or twice just to get it manageable. Before,
    I always wore my hair relaxed and my hair at the time was very thin and grew no longer than shoulder-length. At one point, I got very ill due to a
    medical condition and I was given one treatment of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, all my hair came out. My head was then shaved when my hair
    started to grow back because it started growing back in patches. When it started growing back, I just let it grow as is (natural). I was very satisfied
    with my hair being natural because my hair began growing at a faster rate and it became much thicker. I am very frustrated though, because it is
    extremely hard for me to maintain. I believe I am doing more damage to my hair than if it wasn’t natural. i have use different type of cream to
    regain my hair back. i was online and i was searching on how to make my hair look good and i came across a man called DR. CHARLESS
    (prophetcharless@gmail.com) how he help people to regain back there lose hair i email him immediately and explain everything to him. DR told me
    not to worry that every lost hair is going to come back once he is done with the hair spell, after three weeks when DR cast the hair spell i start using
    him spell cream my natural hair came back, and i was so surprise and i promise to stop sharing this wonderful testimony, if you still need his helping
    hand email him at: (prophetcharless@gmail.com)
