There's something so fun about changing up your hair color. Not only does it give you a completely different look, but it's also fun to experiment with color—especially the bold rainbow and pastel colors that are popular right now. 

However, all of this coloring can really wreak havoc on your hair. When you're tired of experimenting (and not to mention keeping up with coloring your hair every four to six weeks), you might be ready to go back to your old hair color. But can you really ever go home again? 

Let's go over what it takes to get back to your original hair color.

Grow it Out 

The simplest solution to getting rid of your hair color is to just let it grow—until eventually your real color breaks through and the artificial color is gone. The only problem with this method is that it's very slow. Plus, when you've gone with a drastically different color than your natural color it doesn't exactly give you the most gorgeous hair you've ever had. 

Cut it Short

If you're not a wait and see kind of girl, you might want to consider just chopping off your locks the minute your roots start to grow in a few inches. This way, you won't have to go through any awkward growing out period of waiting for your hair color to finally disappear.

Dye Your Hair Your "Natural" Color

Once your roots start to show, your stylist can do a pretty decent job of matching the right dye to your natural color. While it might not exactly be your 100% natural color, you'd be impressed at how close your stylist can get to the real thing. 

Talk to Your Stylist About Options of Stripping Out the Old Color 

If none of these options sound appealing, you can always have a consultation with your stylist on how to remove the color safely in the salon. She might recommend a bleach wash or other stripping techniques to lift the hair dye out and expose your natural color once again.
