Hi Missy,


 I actually just changed the color of my hair last month and it has honestly taken me a long time to get use to it.  I went from a medium brown with blond highlights to dark brown with caramel highlights. 


I'm getting a little more use to it since it has lightened up a bit but I'm still not sure if I'm sold on it.  I have actually been meaning to post pictures of it to see which color wins...just for fun :) 


I had it professionaly done by the same girl I have been going to for almost 10 years now. 


What color is your hair now?

I think my hair is dark blond, I have colored it for so long I don't really know what my natural color is!!

I was married to a hairdresser so I have been every color except black, I was very much his guinea-pig for new styles etc!

I usually go to a salon to get it done, but have done it myself several times, at the moment I am light brown with lighter sections - I used L'oreal's Couleur Experte, it's very easy and you can go as subtle or dramatic as you want

what's the original color of your hair? Dirty blonde


do you color your hair?..if so, what color have you tried on? totally colour my hair; more blonde (sad lol), until recently when my hair went green in my moms pool, so its darker now with blonde high lights


do you do it by your self or you go to a salon and let the professional do it? i like to do it myself to save money but home dyes really are harsher on your hair so a pro visit is nice every once in a blue moon


and what brand of hair colors do you usually use? garnier, or if i'm feeling fancy Ferria


any good brand you like to suggest?  above :)

My original color is a med very mousy brown.  Liek someone dumped an ash tray on my head.  LOL


I dont dye my hair often but when i do, I do it myself. 


Just did it recently to a dark brown to cover some gray.  semi perm so it wont leave a horrible line when my hair grows.  


But I did it with ESalon dye.  Go check it out at ESalon.com


The site asks a BUNCH of questions about your current hair, natural, dyed or not and then blends something specific to you.  My hair looks the best it ever has for an at home dye job!!

It's dark blond


Do you color your hair?..if so, what color have you tried on?


light brown w/ blond highlights, platinum, light blond, strawberry blond, golden blond, blue, green, aqua


Do you do it by your self or you go to a salon and let the professional do it?


I used to go the salon, but we can't afford it in the budget with the wedding. Now FI does it! I dye my daughter's hair.


And what brand of hair colors do you usually use?


Hmmm, I buy the foam kind for regular colors. I like Manic Panic and RAW for unusual color. I dye my daughter's hair pink with RAW every month.

Naturally my hair is a brownish blondish red hahah


I have had every single colour in my hair that exists though!!


I really mean that. I've had blue, red (bright red), purple, green, black, blonde, orange, pink... I went crazy for a couple of years in high school =P


I don't dye my hair anymore though, I grew out of it and I also just didn't have time to keep it up. 


My mom is a hair stylist so she always did it for me =]

what's the original color of your hair? My hair is brown.


do you color your hair?..if so, what color have you tried on? Yes I color my hair. In the past when I was younger, I had blonde hair and as I got older I would stick to chestnut brown. I have been dying my hair black for the last couple of years and love it. I have some gray that likes to peek out and the black is the only one that covers it totally.


do you do it by your self or you go to a salon and let the professional do it? I do it myself!


and what brand of hair colors do you usually use? I have been using this hair color called Short Looks. It is designed for short hair like mine and it more like a rinse than permanent


any good brand you like to suggest? No, I can't suggest any brands for you, sorry, but maybe you should try something semi permanent or a rinse to make sure you like it!

what's the original color of your hair? dark brown


do you color your hair?..if so, what color have you tried on? Yes, but I just get it colored to my natural color. I'm old enough to be covering grays. When I was younger, I had it all different colors. It's been everything from black to strawberry blonde.


do you do it by your self or you go to a salon and let the professional do it? I used to do it myself, but the more grays I get, the harder it is to keep them covered, so I go pro now.


and what brand of hair colors do you usually use? I've tried just about everything out there.


any good brand you like to suggest? Sorry, I can't remember which ones I liked.

I just have to add a funny little "thing" - Once, I even ironed my hair with an ACTUAL IRON after my Mom decided that she wanted me to look like Little Orphan Annie and gave me a perm.  LOL

what's the original color of your hair? Brown


do you color your hair?..if so, what color have you tried on? It's been black for years but I have done pretty much all of the colors: red, blonde, burgundy. I've thought about going back to red again.


do you do it by your self or you go to a salon and let the professional do it? I do it myself but I wouldn't recommend that to a beginner.


and what brand of hair colors do you usually use? Clairol Nice & Easy because it's cheap but it's horrible for your hair! (All box color is.)


I'm glad you decided to go see a professional. I wouldn't want you to have a hair emergency. It's no fun and it's happened to me before! :)

my sister is a hair stylist and her specialty is color, she does my color for me. I am natural brunet , but I find that, because my skin  fair, the dark hair washes me out, so I am now a dark blond with lighter natural looking highlights and will stay this color for the rest of my life <3 it


My suggestion is to find a good colorist, don't just go to anyone!!! Unlike my sister who cares, not just about finding the perfect color for someone, she cares about hair health. She has told me from working in different salons over the years, that some colorist use much stronger bleach then needed, simply to speed up the process, which is so bad for your hair.


Also, NEVER BUY A BOX COLOR!!!!!!!!! I can't stress that enough!!... she tells me horror stories about having to fix Box color jobs all the time…THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD BOX COLOR. They all use metallic dyes which are sooooo bad for your hair!!!! And if you use a dark color and hate the way it comes out, not only will your hair be brittle, it will cost you about $300 to do a color correction and you could possibly need deep conditioning treatments as well.


Some girls use box colors and like them...I am letting you know from a professionals view point to stay away from them.


I spoke to my sister and she recommends that if you want to do this yourself, ask a licensed professional to buy you “Alfa Parf” color, they have a good line, but you need someone with a license to buy it for you.


 I don’t want to scare you into not coloring your hair, I just want you to be informed about it so your hair stays healthy.
