Hair Dye: To DYE For It or Not?
Ever asked yourself if you should dye your hair? As human beings, we're all vain and want to be as attractive as possible but think first. Is it really worth it?
1. Can You Afford Hair Dye?
If you go to an average salon to dye your hair, it will cost at least $40 or more. You can always earn that money back though, right? Of course, there's always the option of dyeing your hair by yourself. If you do it correctly, you can achieve the effect that you strived for.
2. Will Hair Dye Look Good on You?
After you've gotten your hair dyed, you will look stunning, but only if you've picked the right color. Unless you plan to re-dye your hair every time your roots show up, (which will cost you a fortune,) after your hair grows out, half of your head will have your natural hair color, and the other half will have the artificial color. Now, how pretty is that? Of course, you could always get temporary dye and just wash it off as soon as you are finished with your new look. Another choice is to dye your hair a relatively similar color to your original hair, which does not damage it a lot, and people will normally not notice that hairline where your two different hair colors meet.
3. Is Hair Dye Safe?
Your hair color is beautiful, but your actual hair is: well, you guessed it; dead. The strong chemicals in the hair dye make your hair appear limp and dull. However, if there is any Manic Panic hair dyes around you, make sure that you try to get some of it. It is a herbal and protein complex that is much more like a conditioner than a dye, but works the same as both. Do not dye your hair at frequent intervals. If you are a young adult, it will damage your scalp if you dye your hair at frequent intervals. If you do not dye it often, it won't make a large difference. If your scalp is sensitive, or if your hair is dry, you should wait for 12 to 24 hours after washing, to apply normal hair dyes. If you decide to dye your hair yourself, please make sure that you do not get any of the chemical on your skin or in your eyes, that is a safety hazard. (it might be better off saying the chemical can be dangerous, whether toxic, corrosive, etc instead of saying it is a safety hazard)
Dyeing your hair is a personal decision, and I have no right to interfere with your decision. However, I am merely telling you both sides of the story. An alternative choice is to get HIGHLIGHTS ! You can still look stunning, but with half the cost. Obviously, the parts where your hair has been highlighted will appear limp, but that isn't your whole head, right? And when your natural hair grows out again, it won't look disorganized, because highlights are supposed to be scattered around your head. Also, you can get temporary dye. If you don't like the colour, go ahead and wash it off! Have fun choosing!
