Do you dye your hair or bleach it?

I can't stand the smell, it feels like my brain cells die with every whiff xD And I just never felt a need to recolor my hair.

AQ: Do you use extensions as an alternative?

I dyed my hair once to see how it would look on me. My hair is naturally dark brown but I dyed it to a lighter brown. It looked good, might do it again when spring comes back :)

And... no I don't use extensions :C

My hair is often dyed, but isn't right now. It used to be a relatively light blondish-gold color but has been getting significantly darker (it currently is kind of brownish-red :?), so I don't have need to dye it. The first time I dyed all of my hair was last summer...something went wrong and my hair turned purple. D; My best friend loved to tease about that, even after it faded.

No extensions. My hair already is nearly as long as it ever has been (which really isn't excessively long- I just used to keep it pretty short, so it never had a chance to get this long).

I can not dye my hair because have an problem with it, If I did not I would dye my hair in a snap. No I do not have extensions in my hair because I am too lazy to use them.

No I haven't dyed my hair nor am I planning on dying it anytime soon. Same goes for extensions. I like my hair really short, grade 2(6 mm) around the sides and grade 3(9mm) on top of my head.

No, I don't dye my hair, but if I ever did it might be to hide the gray that's creeping in.

Never dyed it because it's too dark and I'd probably need to bleach it. Never really wanted to dye it, either. I'd have to go for my eyebrows and facial hair as well or else it'd all look like Guy Fieri a train wreck.

I tried to bleach my hair once using actual bleach and not a hair bleacher product. I didn't work out too well and looked awful. My hair is a dark sandy brown and it turned it into a light shade of brown. I didn't like how I looked so once I cut it , I decided to never bleach or dye my hair ever again.

Bonus: Here's some pictures of me when I bleached my hair:

Yeah it's not pretty.

I dyed my hair into dark brown. Its been about two years now and I have now let my natural blonde come through. It was nice being brunette for a while instead of platinum blonde. (my natural haircolor is close to that)

I've dyed my hair twice.... Once I had it dyed a dark brown when I was young, and I've had it dyed purple also. The purple actually looked really good on me and I'd have it dyed that color again. Or, I might have my hair dyed red.

I will never dye my hair. EVER.

I like the natural color and I think dyes are obnoxious and mess up your hair. :( People should NOT go around with bright purple-ass hair or something like that.

Brown and blonde and stuff like that? I understand.

I would never dye my hair, especially after seeing the hair of a certain leaker I once despised (you know who I'm talking about).

Also, I like my hair right now, and handling dye is something I AM NOT GOOD AT. Hair extensions would also ruin my nice medium shoulder-length that I've been having for a while.

Lol, I did get highlights once or twice. Not sure if that counts as bleaching or not.

I like the way my hair is right now, white and clean.

I dyed my hair onyx a few months ago.

The color lasted up until about last month. It looked a lot more natural towards the end, and I really like my hair darker than it is. I just wanted a change. I dyed it on a whim. I woke up and was like "I feel like dying my hair today!"

February 18th, 2013, 9:39 PM
I did dye my hair once. It didn't last very long though. Maybe sometime I'll dye my hair again and try to do a better job of it. I did like the color my hair came out but at the same time I do like the color of my natural hair.

February 18th, 2013, 10:26 PM
I haven't dyed it ever and I don't plan to do it anytime soon. I like the natural black that I have. If I start having white patches of hair, I'd much rather have those than dye my hair because..idk, I think I'd just prefer it that way. And similar to you, OP, I can't really stand the smell. :c

February 19th, 2013, 8:30 AM
Never have. Don't know if I will in the future, I don't know any color that'd suit me. :c

I have kept my natural hair color (dark brown) all my life, however I have thought a few times of dyeing it some sort of blonde.
I"m not the kind of person that would use extensions.

Naturally, I'm medium to dark brown and on the cooler side of the spectrum (no red or bronzy tints naturally).

When I went to college, I kept dying it auburn. My hair looked pretty sexy red, if I say so myself. ;) I've since stopped. Constantly dying it is a pain.

I actually used blond hair dye I had lying around the house recently. Since I didn't bleach before I used it, it just lightened my hair a bit. Makes me want to try going blond someday, but that would take effort, so I probably won't.

There's nothing wrong with my brown hair, either. My stepdad said as a kid that my hair was fine as it is, but I always wanted to have orange hair (still haven't tried it lol). A hairdresser once complemented me on my hair color when she was cutting my hair. It felt really nice even if she didn't really mean it for some reason. I've mostly felt my hair color is just plain. But there's nothing wrong with that.

I don't do extensions. Or styling, for that matter. It just is how it is.

No, I don't dye it. Nor do I want to. I couldn't dye it blond because my hair is very dark brown, almost black. Nor do I want a weird color.

I used to bleach the top of my head in early high school years. That stopped because it was ridiculous and ill-advised and a 13-year-old's mistake.

You're welcome

Then once I dyed it black for a Halloween party when I was 19.


Outside of that I've never dyed my hair. I'd like to though. I want to dye it a better brown than the brown I currently have because my brown is dull.

March 2nd, 2013, 5:39 AM
Nah, why would I want to do that? My blond hair is fine the way it is.
