    Unnatural colored hair

    Hi ! I've been thinking about doing something semi-crazy for a while and I was thinking of dying my hair something like blue or green. I know I'm gonna regret it since I rarely even brush my hair but I wanted to know your opinion... has anyone ever tried something like this?

    I've had most colors and currently have grey/white.

    Right before this I had teal. It was a pain to get out.

    edit: I hope that information was helpful

    For a short period? Might attract attention, depending on the intensity.

    Some people can pull those colors off, but before you go crazy, I'd recommend dying a colored streak of hair first and seeing if you like that. Then if you end up not liking it, it won't be as big of a deal.

    My natural hair colour is a dark brown/black. I've had unnatural highlights/streaks in red and purple. In the last year, I've gone full-on blonde, then pink and now I have red hair.

    It's worth doing some research cos unnatural colour does take some upkeep. Pink and red are very high maintenance, for instance. You may want to consider if you're willing to put in that effort to keep it looking decent.

    I would first ask why you want to dye your hair an unnatural color. Why are you wanting to draw attention to yourself? What emotional need that is presently unfulfilled, do you believe will be filled with the attention you will receive from an unusual hair color?

    I hate attention. My natural dirty blonde hair is just boring to me.

    Just another perspective.

    The biggest con is that you will have to bleach your hair (which I hated doing, toner alone was ok but bleaching->waste of time) which will destroy your hair.

    And if you're not big into the beauty stuff (me neither), I'd recommend not to dye all of them. It will be pain in the ass to maintain it. Try to find some inspirations which wouldn't involve bleaching everything.

    I used to have my hair dyed like this https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...863a381d46.jpg (not the same colour though, I went through pink/purple/violet/green/orange/blue... at some point it looked like unicorn's (I mixed colours- it was fun)) and if you want to do something "crazy" but you hesitate- it's a good idea, imho. You can easily hide it, roots are not that visible so you can skip a few weeks/months of bleaching, and even if they are, it still looks good sometimes. Same with toner-> washed out looked ok or even better (depending on a colour) but it wouldn't have with more hair. Also I imagine it's way easier to go back to your natural colour.

    Men....

    The attention part, lol, I absolutely hate attention, do not want it and I will avoid it. I was bored with my hair so I did it. Why should I care about others? BUT, honestly, it does not draw a lot of attention. People simply mind their own business. Yes, I did get a few compliments(!) from strangers but it was rather nice. Also, it breaks ice when meeting new people. It's stupid, but I found it useful. VERY useful.

    Agreed with everyone who says maintenance is a bitch. You have to want to take care of it, basically add another consideration to your lifestyle/maintenance routine. The white/grey I have now is probably the biggest pain in the ass of any color I've had.

    When I had cotton candy pink, I put diluted dye in my conditioner and left it in for an hour every Sunday while I did my longer skin routine (exfoliate, mask, blah blah) I had a hair schedule because you can't wash your hair too often unless you want to do maintenance more often.

    So, in that way, that would be a substantial lifestyle alteration. If you wear makeup, unless you wear mainly neutrals, that might change. If you like to wear colourful clothes, you might want to tone it down. But that's just me - I always felt clowny if I had too much color happening.

    Oh yeah, picking the right colour(s) is important too. I had no problem with makeup or clothes since (sadly) I'm rather plain but it's important to pick the right colour for your complexion (and the rest of my hair in my case). For example, green was ok but only when more or less fresh, after a few washes it was dull, I looked sick; mixed (to make "ombre") pink/tulip/purple looked simply stunning with my complexion, the unicorn's hair that I mentioned before, when fresh it didn't suit me too well, great colours but not for my natural hair- after washing it out though- >stunning pastels that were perfect for me.

    And yes, I imagine that light colours are the worst in maintenance...

    Anyway, I think it's worth it. I do not regret.
