Are you Blonde:
- Highlights will give your hair more movement, but they are permanent, so will take two or three months to grow out, depending on how fast your hair grows (around 1.5cm a month).
- You could also go for lowlights, if you want to go a little darker as you add depth. This is a very natural effect, great for people who don't want to go too far from their original colour. Go for chocolate, golden, copper or honey tones.
- You can also give yourself natural highlights at home, with a lemon juice-based product, which won't change the hair's internal structure like permanent colour, or shampoo in a tint, which will wash out over 8 to 12 shampoos.
- Try a henna mask at home, for movement with a hint of red without the commitment of permanent colour. Try the Body Shop and Boots for henna colour, which is 100% natural and washes out over time. Be careful, if you are very blonde it will come out a dark red, and may take longer on wash out.
