How to Get Back to Your Natural Hair Color


Question: How to get your natural hair color back?
Getting back to your natural hair color can be a challenge, especially if it has been a while since you’ve actually seen your natural color. The first thing to do is let your roots grow out until they are about an inch long, which allows you to see the natural shade and begin the process of getting back to your real color. While you are waiting for it to grow out, be sure to use a clarifying shampoo that will help fade your current color.

Once you can see at least an inch of the roots, use a semi-permanent hair dye, at least one shade lighter than your roots, to color your hair. Instead of dyeing all the hair at once, dye one side at a time so that you achieve the color you desire. After following the directions to remove the dye, dry your hair to check the color. If you are satisfied with the results, add shampoo to the remaining semi-permanent hair color and work it throughout your hair. This will ensure the roots and ends match, and allow for your natural color to continue growing in seamlessly.
