i dye my hair all the time to cover the gray, try it once, if you don't like it it grows out, or you can dye it back to your own colour

My hair is black. I have gotten a couple of gray hairs here recently though that I plucked out LOL. I have thought about what I will do as more gray hairs start to come in. I think I would dye my hair to rid of the grays. I would probably try something lighter in color with some highlights. I have never dyed or done anything like that before with my hair though.

I'm satisfied with my colour of hair and I wouldn't change it. But some people don't like their hair's colour...

Of course I would. My mohawk has been a variety of colors over the past three years. There has been: red, blue, purple, orange, teal, silver, white, black, and bleach blond. Really, dying is not that bad if you avoid a pre-dye bleaching and maintain your hair properly with plenty of conditioners and other hair products. I'm a guy that constanly bombards my hair with spray, gels, cements and even glue and gellatin at times. Trust me, one dye job won't hurt you. You do need to be aware that your desired hair color may not be possible without bleaching first. But I would suggest not bleaching if possible.

Rat brown? That's a pretty color! Is it just not shiny? Try Pantene shampoo followed by Pantene conditioner--not the one bottle with both! Makes your hair shiny and bouncy and the color will be lovely. If you really want a different color, try a rinse that lasts through 8-12 shampoos. That way, if you don't like it it'll go away soon. Or look up henna, that's a natural treatment (they used it in ancient Egypt!) that will give you the look you want. If you like it, get a permanent dye. Good luck!

I am a typical scene kid with more colour in my hair than a rainbow so yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. For the love of god yes! Dying hair is magical and great. Try it and if you don't like it the way back isnt very long. I don't find dying hair is the same kinda step as taking a tatoo or a piercing so... just go for it :D

Yes, i like to dye my hair. But since my campus not allowed to dye hair with only color black, i dyed it black shiny. Its look nice than my previous hair color. My friends keep asking me about that product. I do not know what product, but its japanese product. You can see my haircolor, my pic in avatar.

my hair is black and i keep it that way. i never tried to put a dye on it in whatever color or brand because i am afraid that my hair would be damaged. i know that when too much treatment gets in our hair, it becomes brittle and weak in the long run. my hair is straigth and black so i dont think i need to dye it to look better.

Your hair is rat brown. And you want to dye them. I could not understand that why are you nervous in this respect. It is your right to beautify your hair as you need and as you wish. Rat brown color is not bad. This is natural color of your hair; you got it by your birth. All of us are wearing masks on their faces. Masks are artificial. If purpose is to beautify our self, then it is not bad. I have no hair and no worry of dying my hair. Ha.

Go for it! My natural color is dark brown and it's been dark red, light red, and every shade in between. It's time for another one too. Get L'Oreal - they're the best, so my hairdresser says! :)

Hi keepermykitty,in my opinion,it's harmful for the hair.It's something kind of chemical material.

I personally dont think dying your hair is a good idea. Its bad for your health and we should be more accepting of what we are born with. I have never dyed my hair and I never will.

I used to dye my hair a different colour either every week, or every few weeks lol. sometimes every month.. depending on the mood i was in. It really doesnt do your hair much justice! But it was fun when i was a teenager ;) I would dye my own again if i had any desire to have it dyed, i've let it grow out all natural now, and it has been for a few years.. Once you start to dye it just remember that you will have roots so you will have to either do the upkeep to keep them hidden, or you will have those roots till it grows out ! Good luck keeper ;)

If I had the time, I would dye the back of hair a deep plum color. Only half, so when I put my hair up it'll show two colors. I've always wanted that style.

The first time I colored my hair was about ten years ago and I was just bored. I used to laugh at the models on TV because they talked about covering grey and I was much older than they are at the time...and I was just dying it for something to do. Now at 48 I am starting to see a lot of stray white strands, which show up a lot in my dark brown. I color my hair pretty regularly. I usually use a color a bit lighter than my own, just for hilights. Presently I color my hair myself most of the time. If you're scared or nervous, have it done a few times at a salon, before you try it on your own. Usually the dye is a little higher in quality. Don't forget you can always redo it in a few weeks.
