How to Let Colored Hair Grow Out

Whether you have been dyeing your tresses for years or had one bad mishap, sometimes you just want to go back to your natural hue. There are a few options to make the transition easier.


  • Step 1: Switch up your style to take emphasis off the color. Before you know it, you'll be back to your natural color.
  • FACT: The musical _HAIR_ opened in 1967 at the Public Theater.
  • TIP: Go to a professional for a permanent dye. If you try it yourself, you may end up with an even bigger problem on your hands.
  • Step 2: Get a permanent treatment with a professional if your natural hair color is drastically different from your current color or if your hair has too much length to just wait it out.
  • Step 3: If you died your hair blond, use a semi-permanent color that is close to your natural color. Semi-permanents last 6 to 8 washes and are a safer way to color the hair while you wait for the dye job to grow out.
  • Step 4: Get frequent trims to slowly chip away at the colored portion. This usually works best for people with short hair or a color that is relatively close to the natural color.
