5 Beautiful Hair Colours Without Bleaching

Keeping up with hair colour trends can cost a lot of time and money, especially if you are going to a hair salon for colour touch-ups. Not only that, it also damages your hair and requires lots of time! 

This no-bleach hair dyeing technique may vary for you if you have:

  • Stubborn hair
  • Non-porous* hair

Not sure how to check your hair's porosity? Drop a strand of hair that's been shed due to combing into a glass of water. If the hair floats, your hair has low porosity. Do consult your trusted hair stylist on how you can achieve your favourite hair colours.
