if your hair colour is ginger, and you would like to get some blonde put through it then you should go for it,but be carefull with what colour of blonde you get as it may after a while go a grey colour if its to light..

ive never dyed my hair b4 n my hair is dark brown n i wanna dye it black? will it dye good black??

August 9, 2007 at 7:11 pm
(7) Katie says:

seeing as how your hair is dark brown it’ll hold the black really REALLY well. especially since your hair is unprocessed. just beware of the intensity of the blackness. but if you’re willing to go that dark, i say go for it.

ive dyed my hair like 20 times since the start of the year its mostly been black dye. but my hair keeps going orange. Like no fully orange but lots of tints of it and it looks like my natural hair colours orange but ive just been trying to cover it up. My natural hair colours brown. Anyway i was wondering if since i have dyed my hair so much from home. Well if i got blonde foils would they show up or just go orange or a different colour and would it wreck my hair?

(13) Annie. says:

Okay, I’ve never dyed my hair before in my life, so I’m a little worried about making a change. I would love to dye the ends of my layered, dark blonde hair to black. It would just be the ends of it, but I need to know whether or not black would be a good choice. My skin is fair, so would black be a good choice? Any other suggestions? And, could anyone find me any pictures of people with the ends of their hair dyed? I can’t seem to find any.

(17) Kristy says:

Anyone who has never dyed their hair before should go to a professional hair stylist for their first dye job. Sure, it might cost more money than a dye-it-yourself kit. But, if you pay attention to their technique and ask them lots of questions about your specific hairtype (color, maintenance, future processing, etc.), then you will also be paying for an education that you can take home with you for the next time you want to dye your hair with a home kit. So worth it!

I am dying my hair, but I don’t know what shade to choose. I have light skin but not too light, and right now my hair is brownish-reddish.

(23) Amanda says:

For anyone who wants t o make a dramatic change in hair color…. DO NOT do it. Trust me. I had Dark brown hair but like sometimes it would look soo dark that it looked black and other times it looked really light like u could tell it was brown. Anyways, i was tired of having hair that looked like two colors so i wanted to die my hair lighter. I just wanted a medium brown shade something that u could tlel my hair was brown 4 sure. So when i first did that i did it at home. NOT GOOD AT ALL. my hair turned out REALLY orange!! i was soooooo mad!! so next i died it again. NOPEE still light. Then i died it a dark medium brown and it looked better but still had a tint of orange at the top. but it went away after like 1 week. So then i got used to my hair and it looked okay. BUT, as soon as my hair started growing out….. EWWWW, it had dark brown roots at the top with a lighter shade. my roots showed alot!!! So i got it died after like 5 months bc i wanted to give my hair a rest. i asked for my natural color as base and blonde highlights. It turned out great except for the fact that my base color was too light. It still looked good but once my roots started showing i would have to die it again. i havent died my har since, but i’m HOPING to have it go back to its original color bc, dying my hair made my hair REALLY dry and lots of splits ends. trust me if u die ur hair make sure its not to diff from ur original color unless u want ur roots to show or don’t care if ur hair breaks and dies everytime u die it. Wait until u start getting gray hairs, then die it!!! I learned my lesson.

PLZ reply!!!!

August 7, 2008 at 2:41 am
(35) Paige says:

btw jami, i wouldn’t be exactly sure in your case but i’d match it up and get the closest to your natural hair color as possible -or- get a color a tad bit darker because u DID dye it platinum blonde

Guys if you have dark hair and your thinking about going blonde dont do it straight away go lighteer slowly. i tried dying my hair bleach blonde from dark brown and it went an bright bright orange coulor, it was so embarsing you could see me from a mile away. Ive learnt my lesson and now im trying to go lighter slowly by letting my natural coulor come through the only problem is im addicted to hair dye, i cant leave my hair coulor alone & die it atleast every 3 weeeks, my hair is now seriously damaged, + i cant evan touch my scalp its so sore.

Hello, I’ve been wanting/needing to color my hair. I’ve gotten it professionally done in a salon before. The last time I colored it, it was a reddish color. It’s been almost 7 months since I’ve colored it and it looks so bad now. I recently got a hair cut but just couldn’t afford the color at the salon. I really just want to go back to a really pretty brown color which is my natural color. If I did it myself would it hurt the red? Meaning would it grab the brown?

priscilla–if your hair is a light red right now, a medium brown color should work just fine on it. red fades pretty fast so if you haven’t colored it in 7 months it should be pretty light?

(63) Paige Amy says:

Hey, I am so confused on what will suit me best with hair colour. I started dying my hair allsorts of colours since i was like 9, so i don’t really know what my natural hair colour would be now i’m 16. When i was little my hair colour was dark blonde/light brown, then it got abit darker as i got to about 7. So i think it is naturally medium brown. I have Blue eyes and quite pale skin. My hair a was light brown at the beginning of the year, it was okay and i didn’t have to wear much makeup and suited it but it didn’t do MUCH for me, didn’t make me stand out. So i died it reddy brown and that looked okay but i soon got bored of it, and died it black about 5 months ago. Lots of people complimented me on it and said it suits me, but that’s when i have a little faketan and alot of makeup on. It’s lightened to more of a dark brown now it’s washed out abit, but it’s still quite harsh on my pale skin. I’d like to start wearing foundation more my skin tone rather than darker, as i feel abit fake and i want to be more natural to my own true colour. Paleish skin & Rosy cheeks. I’ve thought of going blonde, as i have never gone fully blonde before. But i like my blue eyes to stand out and i find that my dark hair makes them more noticable. I also have a thing for bold hair, like dark hair or if i was blonde then it would have to be quite bright!
Lol sorry for going on, i just like to explain myself :) I really need some advice on what to go. I want to stand out, i’m not sure on blonde, i’m naturally brunette and don’t really want to fake it. But i want to stand out. I like my dark hair but that may mean having to keep wearing alot of darker makeup.
I’d really appreciate some advice! thankyou :D xxxxxxxxx

They have suggested a dark reddish brown colour (looks a bit mahogony. Would this suit me or is it too dark? I saw a pic of Lindsay Lohan with a similar colour.

To all of you who want dramatic changes to your hair color, do not attempt to do this on your own with a box of color you bought at a store.

If you want dramatic change or want to fix a messed-up dye job, you need to go to a salon and let an expert do it for you.

(92) charlotte says:

Hi this is to bek…you say you want to go back to blonde from red don’t put blonde straight on to red this will turn the red a pinky colour put a light brown on top of the red first then wait a few days then gradually go back to blonde with bleached highlights but don’t bleach your hair all over this will make your hair dry and it could start to break off. The only other suggestion I have is to have your hair stripped but this too damages your hair and leaves it dull and dry

(101) lauren says:

see if your hairs dyed black and you don’t like it and want it lighter put fairy liquid in it instead of shampoo and cpndition the ends of your hair becuase they get really dry and start to break off instead of buying dark brown dye just wait a week or two and see if you like the shade after that. it’s happent to me once before but my hairdresser just cut the ends of my hair that was breaking off. it made a hell of a diffrence, and in the shower you see how much of the dye is coming out oh also if ANYONE wants to dye their hair black i advise you strongly not to, you will regret it compleatly especially if you have light skin tone. :)

First, learn how to speak. Second, gingers have hair color like the comedian “Carrot Top” so if you’re strawberry blonde, you’re not a ginger. I have strawberry blonde/brownish hair naturally and I was sick of hearing “ginger” but the older you get, the less people say that, and the more people say you should go back to your natural color. I dyed my hair really blonde but it’s hard to maintain with the roots growing in, but if you’re really uncomfortable with your hair, I’d go blonde. I’ve got light skin and I went darker, and it looked terrible. Best of luck from a fellow strawberry blonde girl :)

(120) beauty says:

Hi Nikole,

You have many options, but I’m confused by your “lighter and darker skin complexion” comment. How can you have both? I suggest dying your hair a couple shades lighter than your natural hair color. You might consider highlights (I love baliage). Good luck!
