If you're tired of dyeing your hair and are longing to go back to your natural hair color, read on to know how to undergo a hair dye detox and have an effortlessly gorgeous mane, without damaging your precious locks.
Grow out your roots
The most common and perhaps the essential first step to going back to your natural hair color is to allow your roots to grow out. Thankfully, ombré or reverse ombré hair (darker roots, lighter tips and vice versa) looks great on almost everyone, so you need not worry about touch-ups and can actually give your strands the much-needed breather, while staying bang on trend.
Get a haircut
Alternatively, you can get the dyed sections of your hair chopped off and settle for a shorter hairstyle. With the colored parts out of the way, you can speed up the process of waiting for your hair to go back to its natural color. Besides, a refreshing trim will also give you a brand new hair makeover!
As a rule of thumb, the longer your colored hair, the slower you will see any noticeable results. Instead, go for a trendy short hairstyle that suits your face shape and enjoy the best of style and easy manageability.
Plan your hair dye detox process
If you're not up for either of the above two options and want to take your time to transition from chemical dyed tresses to your natural hair color, plan the process with your colorist. Do not go for stark transitions (for example from platinum blonde to dark brown) as it will cause extreme damage to your strands. Work with shades that offer a good median between the processed and the natural shade of your hair for a more easy-going and damage-free transition.
Use the right hair care products
Colored hair retains a ton of pigment residues, even if you don't dye your strands for months or even years! However, just because you've stopped coloring your hair does not mean your tresses don't need extra care. Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner to restore the health and shine back into your locks. An occasional damage repairing hair balm treatment will help you achieve a complete hair dye detox, enhance the quality of your strands, help you avoid hair problems such as dryness and split ends and transform your mane into your crowning glory.
