Changing your hair color is an easy way to update your look. But it's only after the bleach is down the drain and all the dye is washed out that you realize how difficult it is to maintain colored hair, and how much you miss your natural, unique hair color.
In a world where celebrities change the hue of their hair everyday, and when updating your look is necessary (if not required) after a few months, it's easy to be convinced that dyeing your hair is exactly what you need if your life. But in reality, dyeing your hair and stripping of it's natural color and texture can not only be detrimental to your mane but also give you a lot to worry about. That's obviously hard to remember when the rainbow hair trend is in full swing and you're desperate to try out the look. Sure, the unicorn hair might be pretty awesome right now but in a few weeks it will require more attention than any friend, pet, or S.O. ever has. And let's be real, no one wants to deal with that.
So, in an effort to inform you about all the cons of dyeing your hair, and remind you why your own hair color is the best hair color you could ever want, here are seven reasons why you should embrace your unique, natural hair color.
While you might be convinced that a different hair color could improve your life ten fold, I recommend really considering your own natural hair color. Because once those chemicals are applied, they can't be undone. And the only way to get your natural hair back is to let it grow. And as everyone who has ever had a terrible hair cut knows, that can take years. And that's something you have to come to terms with if you're willing to permanently dye your hair a different color.
So, the lesson here is to embrace your natural hair color because it's all yours. If you're dying to try a new hair color, buy a wig or try demi-dyes. Because a permanent change to your natural beauty isn't always worth it.
But You Are.
