The Best Hair Dyes for Dark Hair

It's that time of year again — you've gone through a life crisis, and you're feeling an itch to dye your hair. Only one problem: You have dark hair... and you don't feel like bleaching your hair into oblivion again.

Unfortunately, if you're dark haired, unless you're willing to go the bleaching route, your options are rather limited. But they're not completely limited. With the help of a good-quality dye and some helpful hair care products like the ones from Color Wow, you too can change your look and proclaim your individuality to your heart's content.

Here are some different shades to try if you're looking to dye your dark hair without bleach.
