We know what you’re thinking: “Isn’t scary to color your own hair?” The answer is both yes and no. Box dyes exist for the purpose of convenience, after all, but the trick is to set realistic expectations when picking a color you want to achieve without the help of a professional. It’s important to determine which hues require pre-lightening or bleaching and how many boxed dyes or toners are needed to cover the length of your hair. An expert tip is to read the product instructions thoroughly especially on DIY dyes so you can properly estimate how much you need for a full color. Remember, don’t try to convince yourself that you only need one box of dye for long hair even when you’ve got thin tresses!

6. Warm Ash Brown

Needs bleaching: Yes (Learn all about hair bleaching here.)

A lot of ash brown DIY dyes are now available at drugstores or supermarkets—and if you’ve tried any one of them without bleaching your hair first, the color result would’ve been disappointing. Pre-lightening is a must for any ash shade, but if you’re not aiming for any cool toned ash color, at least one bleaching session would be enough. You’ll be surprised how beautiful your DIY ash brown hair color would look on pre-lightened hair. For more ash hair colors to try, you can check out our list here.

Needs bleaching: Yes (Learn all about hair bleaching here.)
