Many of you out there have had their hair dyed if not once, then a million times. Either switching to a darker color, a lighter color, or just putting in some streaks or highlights. For the newbies, it's really nothing to be afraid of- once you do it, you'll absolutely love it! But you also have to be careful about dying your hair.
There are many important facts that you need to revise before going ahead with the jump, such as how often you dye your hair, and or who does it. Dying your hair often can have a very damaging effect on your hair due to all the chemicals. Therefore, it dries out your hair, and leaves it weak and brittle. Make sure you don't go overboard, and try to keep it down to 3-4 dyes a year.
If you dye your hair at the salon, make sure that it's a good one. It's not a very good idea to cheap out on this because the health of your hair depends on it!
If you're one of those people that like to dye their hair at home, like me, I suggest you read the instructions that are inside very carefully, and that you follow each and every step. Every kind is different, so don't think you can get away without reading the whole page.
For those of you who want to go from a dark to a light color, don't do it at home. It will most likely turn out very bad, especially if you want to dye your hair blonde and you're a brunette. Leave it to a professional please. But if you're dying your hair a darker color, or just putting in some highlights, feel free to experiment, not much can go wrong.
