i think you should do it, it will damage your hair a little but it won’t be that brittle. make sure you do hair masks or deep conditioning treatments if you’re worried that it’s looking sort of dry.
I’ve had a few girls come in to my school salon for root touch-ups who died their hair auburn from black and they had soft healthy looking hair.
What is your natural colour now? I’d say if you need to lighten it, head to a salon and don’t try and do it yourself. The damage shouldn’t be that bad if you go to someone who knows what they are doing. What I will say is that aurburn does have some red tones in it, which the sun will fade faster than your hair naturally would.posted about 2 years ago
be careful – red is hard to take out. i dyed my hair once with an auburn colour and the reddish tones have stayed and even turned orange when i tried dying it brown.posted about 2 years ago
you can always use conditioners to prevent from drying, I dye my hair and I think the best conditioner are with VCOs(virgin coconut oil) my hair becomes really soft after using that :)posted about 2 years ago
I think you should dye it, it’ll be cool. I dyed mine auburn about two years ago and after a while it turn a horrible ginger, my roots had grown out though so only the ends were ginger. I blame the brand. But then I did again and this time it’s a lot better and just overall red, it hasn’t turned ginger or anything. However I think it will stay for a long time, it’s been about a year this time and it’s still clearly reddish. Try and find a good dye (I changed dye when I did it the second and better time) and find good conditioner to try and look after it. My hair is still in good condition though, it isn’t brittle or anything. So I think definitely dye it and just find good products – I use tresemme colour protection which works very well.posted about 2 years ago
JUst get it done by a professional since it will probably be your first time and if you just use shampoo when you wash your hair then start using conditioner (some people just use shampoo, hence the comment). And don’t worry many people dye their hair and it turns out fine. Although if you want to go back, red is a difficult color to take out but it is possible. I say go for it if you are curious, experiment while you still can.posted about 2 years ago
Thanks you guys! I really appreciate the help.
My current hair color is Dark Brown (close to black) and maybe I won’t color it auburn anymore. Maybe a light brown will do! :)) How’s that? I just want it to look lighter.posted about 2 years ago
If you want to lighten your hair there are products that will
lift your color up but wont do as much damage as applying hair
bleach. I had my hair a bright red last year and had to bleach my hair to
achieve the color i wanted and i regretted it very much
seriously go with a safe product that wont do as much damage
and once you do it try to stay away from flat irons curling irons etc.
for a while until your hair can recover and try to apply olive oil once a week
before you shower to add moisture to the hair!
Just make sure to use a color protective shampoo and conditioner and deep condition your hair once a week, that should be fineposted about 2 years ago
I wouldn’t dye it auburn for summer. I have dyed my hair a dark auburn color and this was like during the beginning of june and by the end of summer it was like popsicle red. That is a color for times when you don’t plan on being out in the sun or swimming since it tends to fade fast and needs more maintenance. It’s a nice color though! Maybe try it for autumn. Light brown or dirty blonde is a great summer color and it will only get more defined when you are outside more. Plus if it is too light you can always dye it dark again and when that fades the under tones will be lighter colored instead of red!posted about 2 years ago
its ok to dye it, but just make sure you hydrate it well, i use main & tail leave on treatment and it works amazing!posted about 2 years ago
Do it!! I’ve dyed my hair since like forever,lol. The trick is to be always moisterizing it, using hair masques for color treated hair or one for damaged hair (your hair doesnt have to be damaged for you to use products for damaged hair). I love the kerastase hair masques! Oh and if you go to the beach use a hat…and my trick for when getting in the water is to carry a light conditioner with you when you go to the beach or to the pool..like that as soon as you get out of the pool or ocean pass your hair threw the outdoor showers and just pass a little conditioner on it :Dposted about 2 years ago

hair makes a big difference in one’s images, so if you want to change it up a bit, go for it! styling your hair, putting products in it and dyeing it will damage you hair, but if you take care of your hair by regular conditioning and treatment you can maintain beautiful and healthy hair! if you are willing to do that then go for a new look!posted about 2 years ago
Unless you need to really really lighten it, I don’t really see the need to go to a salon. Unless you’re doing highlights or something, it’s not that hard. If it’s your first time dyeing your hair, there will really be minimal damage, and it won’t be noticeable, unless something goes catastrophically wrong. But be careful, as someone above me said, red tones really stick around. I dyed my hair auburn once, and even after I dyed over it and toned it with a blue toner, the red tones were still prominant, I had to wait for it to grow out.posted about 2 years ago
