4 things only brunettes can understand

If you're a natural brunette, you're well aware that blondes aren't the only ones who know how to have fun in life. However, when you have dark locks, sometimes things can feel a little unfair in the hair department. We're here to supply you with solutions to some of those pesky beauty woes!

Bright hair colors look subdued: Have you been hesitating to try out that new pastel hair color because you know it won't look as vibrant as it does on your blonde-haired friends? First of all, you don't need the shade to look exactly like it does on everyone else. Being unique is a good thing and can even make you appear cooler and trendier! However, if you want the color to show up better on your locks, make sure your mane is healthy (use hair masks on a regular basis and get your ends trimmed every few months), and ask your hairstylist about the in-salon treatment SMARTBOND. It will repair damaged locks and protect them during the bleaching and coloring process.

Grey strands of hair are very visible: If your brunette hair is really dark (for example, cold brown), then we're sure you feel like every time you look in the mirror you notice even more grey hairs appearing in your mane. You don't necessarily have more than someone with blonde hair; there's just a stark difference between dark hair and the light grey color, which makes the greys stand out. If they really bother you, you can always cover them up by getting your hair colored at the salon, or by having it dyed all grey and trying out the #silverhair trend!

Dark roots are more visible: If you like to get your hair dyed a different color that's outside of the brunette realm, then you know all too well how quickly your dark roots can start peeking through again. While visible dark roots can actually be considered fashionable, if you don't like them, there are plenty of ways to camouflage them in-between salon visits.

You can't go too long without washing your hair: Dark hair shows oil a lot faster than someone with light hair. Tie your hair into an updo whenever your locks start to look greasy, or just try out the wet look – it's popular again this season!
