The Big Reason You Shouldn’t Bleach Your Roots If You Want Rainbow Hair

The Secret to Having Perfect Pink Hair Color? Don’t Bleach Your Roots

Hairstylists weigh in.

When Kim Kardashian revealed her brand-new bubblegum-pink hair, you might have noticed that she didn't dye her roots. Actress Constance Wu recently went pink, too, and she also left her roots au naturel.

Turns out this is the key to pulling off pink hair in the most natural way possible. Pink hair may not exist in nature, but having darker roots makes the vibrant shade look less foreign by balancing it out. Plus, it helps your fresh-pink hair flatter your skin tone better, says New York-based hairstylist Arsen Gurgov.

If it's naturally dark, you'll need to lighten it with bleach first and that can cause quite a bit of damage. Getting highlights can also damage the hair and make it break off, too. That happened to be the case with a client of Maryland-based hairstylist Kiera Cecil. About a year ago, the client got highlights that left her with major breakage. However, she wanted to try out rainbow hair, but in a low-key, professional way because she is a veterinarian. Cecil recently shared her artistry on Instagram as she created the gorgeous look seen below.

To maintain the integrity of her client's hair, Cecil only applied lightener from the crown of the head to the tips. She totally avoided her client's roots. "I left out her roots so that her hair could continue to grow from her breakage," Cecil tells Allure. "Not bleaching her scalp helps with not drying her skin, too."
