Coloring your hair is one of the best ways to completely change your look in an instant, but this beauty routine can get pretty addictive. These three question will help you figure out if it’s time for your next dye.

How long has it been?

Question “How often can I color my hair?” doesn’t come with a clear answer. It’s always best to wait for at least four weeks before making your next appointment, but if you want to avoid putting a strain on your hair you should give it a bit more time.

What kind of dye did I use?

Permanent dyes and bleaches are exposing your hair to more damage than semi-permanent hair color products, such as color shampoos. They are much gentler on your hair and can be used more often since they usually don’t contain strong chemicals.

Do I like it this way?

If you’re happy with the way your hair looks like even though it’s been two months since your last appointment, don’t push yourself into coloring it again. Your personal preference should also be taken into the account, and you can get away with going for months without re-dying your hair if you like it the way it is.
