Dear The Glow team,
I’m hoping you can help a sister out. My hair has become damaged from dyeing it blonde for the last decade or so. Problem is I keep dyeing it to avoid dark regrowth. How can I stop dyeing my hair without looking like a skunk?
Yours in (too much) bleach,
Thanks for writing in Karen (FYI if you want your own beauty dilemma answered, email firstname.lastname@example.org). I am going through a similar dilemma myself, which began because I fell pregnant and didn’t want to dump a bucket of bleach on my head every six weeks. I spoke to Marc Armstrong, hair director at RAW salon for the best advice on what to do and this also applies to brunettes and red heads too.
“So you have made the decision to stop colouring your hair, but the decision is not as easy as it sounds.
A major issue when you stop colouring your hair is the stark difference between your natural hair colour and the artificial one. Growing out highlights is easier than a block colour because it is softer. Ask your hairdresser for just a few fine highlights along your part to help disguise regrowth initially.
