Varied colors of blonde
May 7th, 2003 at 11:34am
 
I have dark blonde hair at the roots (ignoring the grey   8) ).  My ends are light blonde primarily do to sun exposure.  I spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer and my hair always lightens as a result.  I try to wear hats and scarves, but they either don't stay on or are hot.  My hair is in good condition with very few split ends.  Should I be concerned with the significant color difference?  I kind of like it myself - I like all the different colors and even the contrast of my light colored bun against the darker scalp hair, but I'm not sure what others think.

The ends of my hair are much redder than the color at the top.  I wouldn't do anything about it myself.

If it really bothers you, you could have your hair reverse streaked, which would add some darker streaks to the ends while really not changing the top too much.  You could do it with a non permanent color yourself to see how it would look, before committing to the permanent method.  While the permanent option would mean using peroxide, at least it would only be on some sections of hair and wouldn't require the constant touch up (and abuse) that dyeing it would.

Welcome!  Yes, it is fun to have that golden bun set on slightly darker hair on the head.  However, I have been asked if it was a hairpiece more than once.  One person was so rude as to comment that my bun was "probably a bad hairpiece - look how it doesn't match her hair".  I turned and glared at her - hopefully she got the message.  Grin

I also have darker roots, than my very light natural blonde hair, but what I like the best is the even lighter blond streaks that can be seen when my hair is worn down. Smiley

Thank you for the warm welcome!! Grin

I have always hair very light blonde hair, until I had my son, then it turned darker, then lighten up after I had him.  Hormones, got to love em'.

Also, I have been told I should cut my long hair because I have a child, but if I wear it up, Wink I see no problems with having the long hair.

My hair was MUCH lighter before my son was born.  It seems to get darker every year.  It is still prone to sun-bleaching, but I have finally realized how damaging that is and I am covering and protecting my hair more in the summer to prevent sum of the lightening effects.

I cut my hair before my son was born because I was tired of its length.  I waited until I was 45 before growing it out again.  If I knew then what I know now about how to care for and style long hair, I don't think I would have cut it.  Don't let others make decisions for you.  If you want to keep your hair long, then do so.  Your age has nothing to do with how you should wear your hair.

[color=Blue][/color]I also have blonde hair.  Right now it's a bit hightlighted and is growing in my normal med-blonde color.  

It used to be lighter until I had kids and then it got a bit darker.  I miss my light blonde hair and want to get some of the lighter blonde back, but I amd not sure I want to go through the damage the occurs when you highlight.

I think that is the nature of blonde hair that is is many varying shades of blonde.  I have a couple of kids that are real blondies, one (DS) is starting to go dark. The other (DD) is still REALLY light.  Love her hair.

Both my dad and my uncle, who were fullblood Finns, were born with and had *white* blond hair all through childhood.  Both died in their 70's with almost black hair and no gray.

I had "white" blonde as a child.  Every year it gets darker and darker Tongue

Now that the grey is coming in, it "appears" to be getting lighter again.

I had light golden hair as a child, my grandma likes to reminisce about how when she put her hand in my hair her wedding ring would disappear.  Smiley

As a teenager I went quite red, but it was always the individual hairs that were red, while others were gold, brown and everything in between.

Now the red's faded to a coppery-goldy blonde, light brown in the winter. I'm happy!
