10 No-Bleach Hair Colour Ideas You Should Try!

No pain, no gain. Well, not anymore! Now gain the satisfaction of "being the girl" with beautiful hair colour without having to go through the pain of hair degradation.


You see, concerns like hair fall, thinning of hair, frizz, breakage and split ends are realistic issues attached to bleaching of hair. Truth be told, bleaching is somewhat similar to dipping your precious tresses into a bucket filled with harmful chemicals. 


But the heart wants what it wants, right? Hair colour, although damaging, results in a much-needed makeover. And yes, I'd like that very much myself.


But what if you could get a hair colour minus the bleaching? Here are 10 gorgeous hair colours that DO NOT require bleaching.


1. Auburn

There's nothing more natural than the auburn hair colour. It offers a reddish-brown hue to the otherwise dull hair. However, the upkeep of this no-bleach hair colour is pretty much wash-and-wear and the natural brassiness is quick to wear off. If I were you, I'd recolour or switch to another one before this one turns muddy orange.

2. Burgundy

To my surprise, wine red or burgundy is an awesome hair shade you can achieve without bleaching your irreplaceable locks. It's the perfect hair colour for people who enjoy subtlety with a hint of uniqueness. And to your benefit, this hair colour will amp up your sunkissed selfies.

3. Toffee

This hair colour is a sweet spot between caramel and golden brown. It's the sort of no-bleach hair colour that is neither too warm nor yellow and has the perfect amount of light brown that is quick to agree with your natural hair colour. And if that wasn't enough, this super-chic hair colour looks great on fair to medium skin tones.

4. Caramel

I agree that it's too light, even for no-bleach hair colour but there's a catch. Find a dye brand of this shade that is potent enough to lighten your natural hair and allow this beautiful caramel shade to take over. I think our suggestion below will serve the purpose just right.

5. Chocolate Brown

Your very first hair colour can come with bleach-related jitters. I think you should give in to that fear and opt for this stunning, no-bleach chocolate brown hair colour. The fine deep-brown shade will brighten your complexion even in a room with dim lights. I also recommend caramel or golden brown highlights for more compliments.

6. Mahogany

Mahogany is the ultimate no-bleach hair colour! The rich warm brown hue of this hair colour adds layers to your hair without making it boring. Perfect for long hair, this shade has many variations that are fun to try. My favourites are copper, cinnamon, mulled wine and chocolate mauve.

7. Chestnut Brown

Nature is always beautiful. Much like this exceptional tree bark hued hair colour. The caramel-ish undertone it offers looks amazing. I lean more towards sub-shades like balayage or ombre but feel free to experiment. Finally, this is a stylist-approved hair colour for ladies rocking layered haircuts, curtain bangs or wavy hair texture.

8. Golden Brown

If going blonde seems like a good idea (but in your head), I'd suggest you try this no-bleach hair colour first. It will not only give you an idea of how the blonde shade would look on you, it will also add dimension to your hair. It's one of the hair colours you can do in the comfort of your home.

Here's a delightful crossover between the red and blonde brown shade you didn't know existed. And if you thought cinnamon only makes pancakes and toasts look good, wait till you experience its magic on your beautiful locks. Girls between medium to deep skin tones, this no-bleach hair colour will make your complexion pop.
