Its not that bad I had Cooper/Orange-y hair for a while and I dyed semi-permanent auburn on top of that and then i let it grow out.

It wasnt bad at all, people kept on asking me if i dyed my hair again during the time i was growing my hair out

ah. That happened to me as my orange was growing out

I just didn't bother with it, because the orange was streaked

but when my red-dyed part was growing out, it was more or less, because it wasn't so dark

depends on what color your hair was dyed..?

I just dealt with it. I used to love my caramel-y, brown hair when I first colored it, but now that it's growing out.. it's bothering the heck out of me.

After a while, I just got used to it. There's not much you can do actually.. I used to think it wouldn't be as noticable if you use a headhand or tie your hair up into a high ponytail. Heeh.

I had long hair last winter (about 4 inches past my shoulders) and then I cut it during the spring time (barely touching my shoulders) and now my hair is in that weird inbetween phase where it isn't long but it isn't short and it kind of rests on my shoulders... I hate it. I always want to tie my hair up because it bothers the heck out of me to feel it all on my neck.

So yeah, I feel you... I'm totally in that awkward phase too. -_-

Not really awkward ... it's just annoying how long it takes ...

Im a guy and I'm trying to grow out my hair ... It grows so slow ...

I have like 4 months left before I can do anything wtih it. T.T

It's okay tho ... my hair isn't ugly ... I just want it longer ...

(And the sideburns are uneven. haha)

omg I'm in that phase right now too. I had really long hair and I cut it this summer, and now it just brushes my shoulders and I don't know what to do with it. I really want my long hair back so i dont want to cut it but it's so awkward so I always tie my hair now :(

Oh man when I had short hair it was such a pain in the richard simmons to grow it out. I was so pissed off at having hair touching my neck during that stage because for years I kept it short so I was too used to having light short hair. It made me sweat in the summer and it was not long enough to tie back and it was really ugly to me =P

I had to get many hair-cuts to trim and keep it in shape and still manage to grow it long. It took me literally forever 1-2 years I think and during that time I was pissed off at my hair 24/7. *shivers*

Problems with dyed hair though....with the roots showing it will not look pretty no matter what color it is. If you don't want to dye your roots or all your hair again, try to just dye the outerlayer. So the dye will remain underneath creating a 2 layered colored look. That'll look better than having roots showing. That's exactly what I did in the past with long dyed hair. I dyed the top outer layer to my original hair color and kept the rest still that reddish brown color it had. And I just kept growing it out and phase it out with future hair-cuts and eventually the dyed parts all get trimmed off with time. Some people actually dye the layer under the top layer so color will kind of show beneath and you'll be achieving that same look. :)

there was a stage with the mulletish BoA/Mika/Hori haircut where when I tried to grow it out it looked disgusting. The layers were flat my fringe was covering my face and it was just gross. In the end I got so sick that I chopped it back to its original stage and it was all good =] But now I'm determined to grow my hair back out so I just have to bear with it =[

Ah yes the "I'm growing my hair out" stage after your roots grow out. Hmm well last year I bleached my whole head blonde. Then my roots started to grow out so I just started wearing hats... haha. When it grew out so much that it was past my hat rims I dyed most of it back to brownish-black. Then let it grow out even more. Now my hair is black all the way to about 3 inches at the ends where its still an orangey-brown. I'm hoping to cut it off when it grows about another 3 inches! I guess you just have to deal with it right? Or just cover it up or try and mask it so it looks like the style you intended. =^.^=

Oh, man.

I used to have blonde hair and then I got brown coating because my mom said my blonde hair looked absolutely hideous. So I grew it out for a frew months [it turned intoa a reddish caramel brown] and then I cut it. don't worry it's not as bad as it seems and you'll get through it. Just get lots of haircuts.
