Hair colour without bleach is impossible. Bleach, please! Yes, we went there; because we found 10 gorgeous hair colour ideas that DO NOT require bleaching. 


Don't delay that much-needed hair makeover and find your match, now!


How to dye Hair without bleach or developer?

Colouring dark hair without bleach can be achieved with temporary hair dyes designed for dark bases, ensuring vibrancy and true-to-color results without the need for pre-lightening. These formulations cater to dark strands, providing a hassle-free coloring experience.


1. Auburn


There's nothing more natural than the auburn hair colour. It offers a reddish-brown hue to 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 it was us, we'd recolour or switch to another one before this turns muddy orange.

2. Burgundy


To our surprise, wine red or burgundy is an awesome hair shade you can achieve without bleaching your irreplaceable locks. It's the perfect hair dye for people who enjoy subtlety with a hint of uniqueness. And to your benefit, this hair colour will amp up your sunkissed selfies. The only reason to get you thinking before getting this colour is that it fades off faster than the other shades.

3. Toffee/Honey


This no-bleach hair colour is a sweet spot between caramel and golden brown. It's 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


We 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.

5. Chocolate Brown


Your first-ever hair colour can come with bleach-related jitters. We 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. We also recommend caramel or honey blonde 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 looks amazing. We 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), try this no-bleach hair colour first. It will not only give you an idea of how the shade would look on you, it will also add dimension to your hair. It's one of the most-recommended hair colours on our radar.

9. Cinnamon


Here's a delightful crossover between red and blonde brown you probably didn't know existed. And if you thought cinnamon only makes pancakes and taste 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.

10. Mushroom Brown


For a subtle warm and trendy ash-earthy tone, pick this no-bleach hair colour today. However, for a Pinterest-perfect result, get your hair coloured by a professional. We repeat, this hair colour is not your next DIY project.
