    The Ultimate Guide to Growing out Highlights

    Growing out highlights can be time-consuming and frustrating. You may want to change to a solid colour or go back to your natural colour. You may simply be tired of your highlights after having them for a long time. The good news is that highlights are often easier to grow out than solid colour, at least in terms of not having to grow everything out. On the other hand, highlights can stick around a lot longer than you think. With a few simple tips, you can grow out  highlights with minimal headache.

    How to Grow Out Highlights

    Here’s what you need to know about growing out highlights.

    Use the right products.

    Don’t make the mistake of thinking that you can strip the colour by using regular products. Using products that are not made forcolour-treated hair can end up leaving your highlights feeling and looking awful. You don’t want to dry your hair out and cause damage. Even though you’re growing them out, you want to keep them looking fresh. Choose salon-approved products made forblonde hair tones. This will prevent any yellow tones that make the highlights look brassy.

    Get trims regularly.

    Just like you need to do whengrowing your hair in general, you will need to get regular trims to slowly phase out your highlights. If you’re feeling bold, you can chop everything off and go with a shorter cut such as a pixie.Lobs are another great style to consider if you want to go a bit shorter while still keeping a bit of length. Otherwise, you can stick to your current length and trim the ends often. Trims will generate hair growth and also get rid of split ends.

    Add natural colour.

    Can you colour your hair on top of highlights? A short answer to this is that it depends on the colour. As highlights typically have more than one shade of very light colour, there may be a variation in any colour you apply. This could result in the lighter parts looking brighter, darker or bolder than the rest of your hair, depending on the colour you use. Instead of taking that risk, aim for a shade that is closest to your natural colour. Speak to your stylist about blending in the colour in a way that works with the highlights. You can gradually return to your natural colour without the risk of the colour looking uneven or fake.
