So I dyed my Hair - no dramatic changes!

I've been so bored with my hair lately! I used to dye it every month for over a decade; red, plum, purple, black, orange and even bleached it 4 times in one weekend!!!! (never do)

I decided enough was enough and 5 years ago started growing it out and as of one year ago, when the last bit was snipped off, I became 100% natural.

So my dilemma over the last few years is I don’t want to cut it as I'm trying to grow it and I don’t want to colour it as I didn’t want to undo all the hard work of growing it out! But I was just getting so BORED as I couldn’t do anything, see below the last 5 years of natural hair, besides it going from dark to light with seasonal changes its stayed pretty much the same.



I decided to try a temporary dye, I was a little reluctant because the last few times I dyed my hair it felt like acid, and I used to cry when it was done, as it made my scalp more and more sensitive. But the temporary’s stated no ammonia etc etc so I thought I’d try.

I used Garnier Nutrisse HerbaShine in 300 Darkest Brown


As you can see I stayed safe and just went for a richer brown to give it some gloss. I didn’t hurt my scalp (maybe a slight tingle for a short while) and it should last for 6-8 weeks so I hope the fade out will be subtle.

Here is the before and after, it’s hard to capture but out and about its really noticeable.


I'm scared to try red just in case it stains my hair, I would be mortified if I couldn’t get my brown back as too years to grow the red out. Would anyone know if that could happen?

Do you ever just get bored with your hair?
