With so many competing hair dyes out there it’s hard to choose the right one for you. Lucky for you, we have found some of the best hair color products currently on the market for your first-time hair dye journey.

Brunette Ladies

How well will color take to your hair if it’s light brown, brown, or even black?  The answer depends on what color you are going for. Brown hair works very well with tints and colors like purple, red, and even rose gold. Of course, you can always choose to bleach your hair and achieve any color. Although, I highly suggest that if you choose to do so, you should get it professionally done so you do not damage your hair. Bleaching hair can sometimes lead to frying it from the bleach being on too long; this can result in brittle hair that breaks off.  If you would like to go for a more natural route then check out some of the products below.

Blonde Ladies

Blonde and light-haired ladies you have nothing to worry about except how to get the color out of your hair. Like a blank canvas, colors will just stick and blend into your hair. The only time you would need to bleach your hair is if you want extremely vibrant-neon colors. Other than that, the trick would be getting colors out of your hair! (Which would be done over time or with a hair color remover).
