Yay or Nay - Hairstyles and Colours
an earlier discussion on red hair made me think of my delimma...

I naturally have blonde hair, more on the lighter side than darker. For the fall/winter, I want to do a temporary dye...just to go with a light brown. Will it ruin my hair? I pretty much have fair skin w/ freckles here and there, so will the brown look totally out of my place?

I am in search for change...and what better place to start than your hair?

what shade of brown? do be careful because even with temp
dyes , it can stick to your hair. leaving you with semi color darkening .
i dont think your going to go dark brown, but also consider with brown hair , when your natural blonde grows in it looks like bald patches. a friend of mine dyed her ight blonde hair to dark brown and 3 mointhes later her hair looked grayish
so she had to dye in back to blonde.

we do all need a change once in while i went from my natural
dark brown [ think pen cruz] to a gisele like blonde, i went back to dark and now my hair is paying for for it i wont bleach it again for a long time - way too much maintenance

I was reading in Allure, and there was an article on how dying your hair Brown is less damaging than dying the blonde. They had magnified hair strands, and sure enough, the hair dyed brown was much healtheir.

I have no idea what issue it was in. But if I remember correctly, it was in the fall. Because I got my hair dyed back brown in the fall, and for some reason, I just remember it.

I have dark brown hair, and I have reached a nice blonde a few months ago, but, its too much trouble to keep it up, so, I dyed it back to brown a few weeks ago, my hair just cant stand it any more, bleach thins out your hair a loooot!...
My best friend is a blonde, and she once brought some light brown dye, non permanent, and a highlights kit... she made me do her "low lights" which maybe you have heard of it, its like the opposite of highlights, you get a dark tone of dye instead of bleach, and pick some thin strands of the superior area of your head, and dye them.. they will go away with washes, and the change is not that drastic, if you like, you can do all over, as much as you want, depending on how dark you want your hair...and, when your natural hair grows, you can aways retouch them, and they will look even more natural than a whole head dyed of brown... I personally like that idea, but most of my friends picks really dark tones of dyes, and they end up looking fake, but if you choose a ligh ashy brown, or a light golden brown, it will look muuuuch more natural, cause your hair will " suck " up all the dye, and it will turn a bit darker than expected... you may get a reaaally dark brown almost black if you go dark or medium...

Most of the avan garde hair salons offers this services, but of course, after your first time done by a pro, you will see that is super easy, and you can do it yourself.. hope this helps.

thank you, Alejandro!

so...you're suggesting a light or golden brown? Tha's what I was thinking of going with. And just low-lights...I'm just not sure if that'll look goofy, or unnatural - because I'm clearly a blonde.

OK, put simply: your hair contains pigments. More or less depending on your natural colour.

Hair dyes work by opening up the hair cuticles and colouring the insides, sort of. You can't really dye your hair a lighter hue.

In order to lighten the colour you need to strip away pigments, bleach them away. This is more stressful.

Every chemical process that messes up the cutical layer will damage your hair (obviously) but bleaching is the worst because it actually strips away from the inner layer.

Or maybe you're just going bald?

Exactly that is why I suggest the low lights, its much safer...but now my hair is on a forbearance period , and Elle, I highly suggest you to go for a light brown, golden or ashy, it depends on your taste, but remember, keep it light and simple, thin strips of hair, not chunks, that will look unnatural and fake ...of course that is the look that Xtina is always wanting to achieve .. again, go to a pro, they know much more than I can tell u, and they can check ur hair and what exact dye to use...good luck sweetie
