I have naturally dirtyblonde hair that i have been dying a lighter shade of blonde for the past two years. When I was younger I had my hair every colour of the rainbow, and it was fairly costly and difficult to return to blonde..now im getting extremely bored of my hair and considering dying it brown..but im afraid if it goes wrong it will really damage my hair to return to blonde!! is it worth the risk? my hair is my faveorite feature so i really dont want to damage it badly..

Are you going to do this or will you go to a pro to have it done?

I wouldnt do it yet. I have been doing mine for 30 years and I wish I had not started. If you can hold off, hold off. It is an expense, and it appears to be getting more expensive as time goes by.

Go to a pro. I have a pro do mine, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Yes, it can be pricey, but it also depends on what you want. He makes my hair light brown with blonde highlights, and it costs $150. If I don't get highlights, it costs less. It may cost less in your area, though. Shop around and talk to several pros and tell them what you want before you make a decision.

Manic Panic makes two semi-perm browns that just wash out. It could leave you dull on washout but a clarifying shampoo or getting it relightened would take that away without having to go through all the levels of lightening that can damage it if it were perm dye.

Why not try some low lights first? Brown all at once/all over may feel blah or depressing to you if you are used to the blonde.
