How To Find Your Natural Hair Color


Dying one’s hair has become almost a daily routine for a lot of people. Dying can not only help one feel more fresh, but can help hide the annoying grey hairs on one head. However, the most difficult task of dying hair is the find the hair natural color so as to make it as normal as possible. If one tries anything other than the hair natural color, people tend to notice the color more and this can make you feel more awkward rather than confident about your appearance. There are many possible ways to get the best possible results.

Step 1

Firstly, if you want to try a new look try going within two to three shades away from your hair natural color. This way, you will not look too different from your actual hair dye, but can certainly try a new and fresh look: Something which is similar but not the same. This is a great way for people looking to dye their hair but at the same time want to try something new and different as well.

Step 2

Another option is to do some market research. Comparing your hair natural color to the different tones available in the market can be a good way to find the color that best matches with your natural color. One can not only download color charts from the internet, you can even use them to find out the code assigned to your hair and then go to the market and buy the product, or better yet, order it online and get it delivered.

Step 3

If your hair natural color is a bit different and is not really matching any of the colors in the color chart, you can always try alternative brands. Remember do not give up if one brand does not have your desired hair color. Different brands manufacture different types of colors and they can offer one a vast variety to choose from. However, keep in mind that the color codes will be different for these separate brands and you will have to begin your search from scratch. Always double check with the relevant brand’s color chart.

Step 4

A good way to find the hair natural color is to consult a beautician. They are experts in such fields as they have to consult hundreds of customers on a daily basis. Not only they are more aware with the different brands in the market, but know exactly which brand has what range of color. Although this may cost you a bit more than doing the job yourself, at least you can rest assured that you are in good hands and there is no chance of messing up your hair.

Step 5

Finally, if all of the above fail, you can always try natural products to restore your hair natural color. Henna and other similar dyes may offer different results when used in different concentrations. However, that would require you to do some experimenting with your hair and the results are not only time consuming but can be disastrous as well.


It is important to note that if you cannot find your hair natural color easily, maybe it is time to go for a new look. Do not be disheartened but take it as a fresh start to life. Another important tip is to never ever mix and match different hair products as the chemical interactions can be damaging for your hair natural color. It is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your hair, and dyes are best to be handled with extreme care.
