Transitioning back to natural colour

hey guys,

I dyed my hair a chocolate reddy brown about a year ago, and have touched it up about two times since. My natural roots are growing back and the dyed part is gradually fading lighter and brassier. I was wondering if the best option was to go get my dyed hair to match my roots at the salon? Or perhaps tone the dyed part to a darker brown and eventually end up with a very subtle ombre? I like having lighter hair but I hate when it becomes copper, and I don't know if I'm ready to go back to black entirely yet.. I also don't want to touch my roots.

help!!

Ideally, I'd want to have my natural colour with subtle balaayge in the future.. but I don't want to damage my hair too much.

These are some images:

That is the worst thing about coloring.. it's next to impossible to go back to your natural color. Even if you manage the miracle of matching the shade, the ends will have different highlights from the underlying color and will fade differently from the unprocessed hair. Two options: cut off the ends either gradually or in a big chop.. or try to blend. If money is not an objection a combination high/low light foil weave can do some pretty amazing things in the right hands. You are still going to have a line of demarcation but it will not be nearly as severe. You can also try for an ombre, using mid tones to transition from the roots to the ends.. I wore that look for quite a while and found it very flattering, and it was much easier on my hair since it required no further processing in the future.

I'm dealing with the same thing patooshi. I have had found that Goldwell Colorance Soft Color has worked really well for me. Its a foam and easy to apply. My hair is very dark brown and I had been coloring it auburn for years. I decided to let my natural color grow out and had the same line of demarcation. I choose a color closest to my nautral color and it has done the trick. I don't know if it's CG but it hasn't damaged my hair at all. I paid $12.99 for the can and I get 3-4 applications from it. Your hair looks longer and thicker than mine so you may need to use more.
