The Pros And Cons Of Reverting Back To Your Natural Hair Color
Less Maintenance
The commitment to dyeing your hair is a big one because you’ll have to go back for touch-ups every six to eight weeks. Reverting back to your natural hair means that you can keep your hair healthy and you can save money on appointments and products.
Less Chemical Treatment
Both permanent and semi-permanent hair dyes typically consist of a mixture of pigment-stripping and color-altering chemicals such as paraphenylenediamine (PPDA), hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, and lead acetates. They can really damage the hair, so if you want healthy strands, let your hair grow out.
It Will Take Time
Hair takes a long time to grow out, so if you’re ready to commit to growing out your natural color, talk to your colorist about maybe trying a gloss to avoid too many different colors in your hair. It also depends on the time of the year, if you’re on certain medication, and whether or not your hair grows quickly normally.
Creatively Deprived
For a lot of people, dyeing their hair gives them the ability to express themselves. Luckily, there are still ways to express yourself if you choose to return to your natural color, including dip-dyeing your tips, wearing wigs, or even trying hair pieces.
