Should a 14-15 year old dye her hair?

I'm 14 turning 15 in September. I have black hair and i only plan to dye the ends of my hair light brown. I dont want to dye my whole head, just the ends. Or 1/3 my hair length.

Will it be bad for my hair if i dye it? Has my age got anything to do with that?
Should i dye it at this age or wait a little longer?

  • You're in a perfect age to dye your hair, because you don't have responsabilities in a job and you don't have the disadvantage of giving not such a serious impression. You also have the advantage of being in an age where most girls don't dye their hair so it'll be easier for you to look different.

    I notice you are worried about your hair, but if I were you, I would ask to an expert how to care about your hair after dying it and I would dye it.

  • Noticeably no- if you take good care of your hair and it is nice condition at the moment then dying your hair slightly light brown won't damage it too much or enough to be noticed. I'm 15 and I've dyed my hair faded into blonde recently (it's naturally brown) and my hair looks and feels the same. If you look after it properly and use heat protectant, don't overuse curlers, striaghtners etc. and get it cut when you notice split ends arise you'll be fine. I say go for it! Just don't overdo hair dye because if bleach is used to lighten the hair frequently it will start to get damaged.

  • Well it's only the ends so it won't do to much damage to the root of your hair.

  • Well dying your hair is never healthy, but as for the age thing I say go for it if your parents are down. You only get a short window of youth to do the crazy colors, crazy styles, thing for most people unless they go down a pretty free career path. So embrace that window of opportunity and enjoy it.

  • It will damage your hair but not too bad unless you have to bleach it, which is sometimes the case with black hair, depending on how much lighter you want to go. There are different levels for different hair types and how far you have to lift it.

    Go to a salon and have it done professionally. You have virgin (never been dyed) hair. So it should be easier to color since you don't have damage to your pores from previous dye, unless it's been permed or chemically straightened.

  • i have dyed hair tips you can see it in one of my posts if you want and i love it. if you dont do it now when will you? try to use vegan hair dyes i can give you some names of the ones i use they smell great and are better for your hair. it all depends on how thick your hair is mine is kinda fine so i like to give it couple of months for it to recover. as long as you dont excessively dye it. do you plan to do it at home or salon?

  • I started dyeing my hair at age 9, and while some people judged my mother for letting me, it was just an extension of me expressing myself. During your hair at fourteen or fifteen is perfectly normal

  • Repeated dying is bad for your hair. That said, I always wanted to die my hair purple but never did and now it won't fly with my work/career Enjoy your youth and express your individualism any way you want (as long as your parents approve)

  • I don't think age has anything to do with it. I first got highlights in 5th grade (I was 9 or 10) then i kept re dyeing them til the beginning of 7th grade then my Freshman year of high school I dyed the ends purple. I fee like as long as your family agrees and doesn't think your too young it should fine

  • First time I dyed my hair was when I was around that age too. Of course your hair is going to be damaged a little no matter what you do

  • I saw go for it. It's not hurting you, and it's not hurting anyone else. Plus, if you get tired of it you could dye it back to your natural color or cut it off so healthy new hair could grow in better.

    • My hair is black and i wanted like a light brown ombre on the ends (i dont want super blonde ombre because my hair is black and itll look too light?

    • i think that will nice :)

  • Whether people agree with it or not... hair is dead. You can't kill it with hair dye at any age. Sure you can make it feel like crap but ultimately hair isn't alive so that argument is out. In terms of colour just be careful. Going lighter is always a bad idea (I'm a brilliant light blonde who's an idiot for liking dark red, dark brown and black and I continually get stuck in the vicious cycle of maintaining it which is very hard and expensive at the rate my hair grows... it's been a year since I last coloured my hair dark red and I'm still growing it out...) but the ends should be fine for you. You seem to be aiming for an ombré type of thing? It would break up the black nicely.

  • Of course it is bad for you and your hair to color it with chemicals. The only safe and healthy solution is henna and/or indigo. But that can only give you red/brown or black hair. But if you want to do it I would say go for it if your parents also are on board. But do it the proper way and look for the safests option, preferable at a salon.
