Choosing a Hair Color
If you walk down the hair color aisle at the store, it is likely that you could become overwhelmed. If you don't know a lot about coloring your hair or aren't quite sure where to start, seeing those shelves stocked with almost every imaginable color could leave you scratching your head.
It can be difficult to know just which color you should pick for your hair, and there are many factors you should think about before coloring. To begin with, ask yourself these questions: do you want to go with a natural color, or something crazy? Do you desire a small color change, or maybe something really drastic? Do you want to use a dye that lasts for a short time or a long time? Get a basic idea of where you want to go with your hair color.
Next, you'll want to think about some other things before getting ready to color your hair:
- Take your complexion into account. Certain hair colors will generally look better with particular skin hues. If you have cool skin tones, for example, you will probably want to pick a cool hair color.
- Think about your personality. Are you the type of person who would feel comfortable sporting bright pink or bold blue locks? Make sure that you don't change your hair to a color that will make you regret your decision later and wish you hadn't done it.
- What do you tend to wear? Believe it or not, your wardrobe is something you may want to factor in to your decision. If you tend to wear a certain color often, you don't want to dye your hair to a color that clashes with your clothing.
- If it is your first time dying your hair, you might want to choose a color that isn't too drastic. This is an especially good idea if you are dying your hair at home and have little experience. This way, any mistakes will not be as noticeable.
- Remember that if you choose to dye your hair a lighter color, you will probably have to bleach your hair first. This is a process that can damage your hair, so make sure to take proper care of your tresses beforehand and afterward so they stay moisturized.
Changing the color of your hair can be fun, but be certain that you have picked the right color for you before taking the plunge.

I have let my hair grow out to its natural colour which is still some dark in the back mixed with some silver and it has some white streaks in it. It is white at the sides and on top. I have noticed some yellowing in it and used Pantene Silver Expressions shampoo and conditioner...my hair took on a kind of "blue" tone...hated it so went back to my regular shampoo..no yellow now, should I just use that shampoo when I see yellow and then go back to my regular shampoo or is there something specifically for my 3 toned hair out there?
