Hairstyling/hair color


I am naturally a honey blonde but have been dying my hair red and auburn for years. What will i need to do to go back to my natural color?

Hi Rachel,

I apologize for the delayed response I was away from my computer for a few days.

To go back to a honey blonde color on your hair is possible but there are several steps it would require and it is a process that only a licensed trained professional should be doing on your hair. If an untrained person attempts to do this process for you there is the potential risk of damaging the hair, chemically burning the scalp, or ending up with an undesired hair color which will then become a color correction which can be quite expensive.

To go back to your natural honey blonde, you would have to let the old hair color grow out and slowly cut off that old color without reapplying any new color because you cannot get your natural color out of an artificial color.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you and good luck.
