If you dye it a lot, it will get very dry and thin. But if you are careful, no problem and you can look great with the change ;)posted almost 4 years ago
I have been dying my hair for years and years! It does make it dry but you could just ensure that you are getting trims periodically! I am a definite supporter of changing up the style and color of your hair. Makes you feel refreshed!!posted almost 4 years ago
i just dyed my hair this year for the first time…and i love it! everyone says that the color i pick was def the color i should have been born with. it makes it dry but get regular trims and CONDITION CONDITION CONDITION and you be ok.posted almost 4 years ago
i have waist length dyed black hair. its still full and thick, even at the bottom. i use tons of conditioner and apart from doing it black am very good to it, so the dye has not affected me negatively. if anything i would say i enjoy having it this way immensely, so for me its worth it.
perhaps if you aren’t sure of the permanence of the dye job, just go with non-permanent stuff..posted almost 4 years ago
i was wondering the same thing…
are there any suggestions for a good at home hair dye kit?
and is it better to get it done at a salon or do it yourself?posted almost 4 years ago
all i have to say is DON’T bleach.
at least not much.
i have a few friends who have dyed their hair to the roots and their hair is kind of dry and dead.
i do know of some people who have dyed their hair and it looks completely healthy.
good luck with the dying!
oh and you should really only buy hair dye from a beauty store.
my friend learned that the hard way.
Salon dyeing is the way to go. The problem with home kits is that often people don’t do it properly and patches are lighter or darker than others. At the end of the day it’s too much maintenance for me. I can’t deal with roots. Haven’t dyed my hair since middle school.posted almost 4 years ago
I think it depends on what type of hair you have. I have medium – coarse hair so dying it makes is frizzy and dry and just “damaged” looking. Especially since I was really into bleaching in my younger days!
For the record, it’s taken me about 3 years of not dying my hair and taking extra good care of it to make it look normal again.posted almost 4 years ago
It’s worth it if you take care of it but in the end, your natural hair is the best :)posted almost 4 years ago
I’ve dyed my hair and bleached it a few times for the spur of the moment. Every time, I have regretted it. With fine hair, it was hard to handle after even if I got it done at a salon. I despise the dryness and unnatural look. I love my natural hair and will never forsaken it again!posted almost 4 years ago
i think to make it worth it you have to find and stick to a good colorist so they can pick a good formulation for you. also, choosing the right color to complement your skin tone and not wash you out is important. and i think after dyeing your hair you have to think about upkeep whether you’re going to the salon for touch-ups or doing it yourself is also going to cost money/time/effort.posted over 3 years ago
For me its worth it because my eyebrow were always a darker color than my natural dirty blond hair, and a dark chocolate with warm tones suited my skin tone better than my cool toned hair.
I think with a little research and knowledge of what your using you can dye your hair safely without damamging it. There is a fair amount of upkeep, I do weekly deep conditioning, using only semi permanent and vegetable dyes, always use a heat protectant, and shampoo made for colored hair.posted over 3 years ago
my hair hasn’t fallen out and i’ve dyed it 3 times in the past year. i like it – it’s a change as long as you don’t dye it way too often. my hair’s always been pretty dry so there was no real difference before/after.posted over 3 years ago
It’s more damaging to lighten your hair than to darken it but I think it’s worth it. I dye my hair a nice auburn colour instead of my natural mousy brown/dirty blonde and my skin town looks more even and less red and my hair actually looks shinier.posted almost 2 years ago
dying my hair makes it feel thicker and healthier. as long as you take care of it it wont fall out, bleaching causes it to fall out…not dye, dye good. (: hope this helps xoxoposted almost 2 years ago
from my experience, coloring your hair doesn’t damage it too much. it’s bleaching/lightening that will really cause some damage/dryness. but you can always get moroccan oil or deep conditioning treatments to help repair dry/damaged hair!posted over 1 year ago
I don’t think you should if you haven’t already. You hair looks pretty as it is.posted over 1 year ago
I’ve never dyed my hair, but unless you intend to continuously re-dye your hair every couple months, I think it’ll be fine. the extent of damage depends on the dye; I think bleaching of any sort is far more damaging than just coloring.
if you’re not sure, just take advantage of the ombre trend and dye your ends—if the process damages your hair, you can just trim it off.posted over 1 year ago
