Hairstyle: Going form Blonde to Brunette, share my journey!

I haven’t had dark hair for over 8 months now, and to be honest I’ve gotten much used to my blonde hair.

Actually changing hair colours is quite normal for me. I started dying my hair in year 9 and it was a firey red colour and I used L’oreal Feria, however the closest I’ve ever gotten to blonde was a light brown a few years back.

I’m very attached to my blonde hair despite the damageness it creates, I love the flexibility of changing into pastel coloured hair whenever I want.

So when I got asked to dye my hair dark again, I was a bit nervous. I really enjoyed how my blonde hair allowed me to wear different colour clothes like pastel colours and light and summer colours. I could still wear those colours when I was brunette, but they didn’t give the same feeling.

However I must admit my brunette hair makes me look more fresh and natural. Much more crisp and elegant.

I’m totally not sure what hair colour I should stay at??

You guys need to help me!

Before you make a choice though you might want to see both hair colours in action in my blonde to brunette hair dying video. I used the Loreal Castings product in Iced Chocolate to achieve my brunette colour and I show you how I used it 🙂

The Loreal Castings product lasts up to 28 washes and retails for about $15. It’s considered a semi-permanant hair product so will not permanently change the colour of your hair.

However if you have porous and bleached hair, you can expect some staining to occur. I’ve used this hair dye multiple times and is a great product when you don’t want to commit to a hair colour, but don’t want it to wash out too quickly either 🙂

If you have ever been curious about this hair dye please do watch 😀


It was definitely shocking to go to such a dark colour from such a light colour, you find that your whole image changes a lot. I’m slowly getting used to it, and the hair color really makes me look much paler. I’ve gotten mixed reviews from my friends as well 🙂

Love to know what you guys think :)??

Also want to know if you’ve ever had a drastic hair change and how you feel? What colour did you change to? How did your friends react and did you keep it :)? 

Tell me in the comments section below 😀

    Blonde is soo much cuter on you 🙂 Asians always have dark hair, so I think you look so much more original with really light cute hair!

    I have brown hair naturally and had had it dark for almost whole of my life until I decided I'm going blonde and so far loved it! I'm mostly keeping my hair pastel pink tho 🙂

    I think you pull off blonde and brunette very well 🙂 But I think black looks better on you because blonde hair kinda flushes out your face. I think black hair frames your face instead of flushing it out. I hope that made sense! ;;

    Blonde suits you better, Wengie!♥ I have naturally dark hair and I dyed it light brown twice, I actually loved it but I noticed that my hair got dry and looked unhealthy so I decided to let it grow long, have a hair trim every 6 weeks and maintain getting hot oil treatments to make my hair look healthy again ♥

    I'd say brunette looks better ^^ And it's for sure easier and "healthier" for your hair to keep brunette than having to blond it often.

    ahh both hair colors look very cute on u! i'd say the blonde one makes u look slightly more youthful & cute, but i prefer the darker shade actually haha. The darker hair makes you look slightly more mature and elegant.

    I love the dark hair on you~ I think it really makes your features stand out more! However, blonde hair gives you a sort of young and fresh look to you… Not sure which one I can choose… Both look so good ><!

    Hi Wengie! I don't want to offend you but that photo of your hair blond looks so bad, and I get it you have that weird color because you try to get rid of the purple but, you have a lot of great pictures with blond hair you should pick one of them so we can really vote of what looks better on you

    Hi Wengie, i personally think that you look more awesome and stylish with your blonde hair..Brunette gives you a mature look but i still think that blonde hair suits your bubbly and cheerful character more… 🙂

    If you want another drastic change of your hair color, you can consider apricot orange or maybe wine red..These 2 colors suit your fair skin! Hehe just my honest suggestion..Have a great day! 🙂
