Natural Hair Colour
Prior to his flamboyant blonde hair we saw Charles fighting in this dark natural hair colour.
He revealed the decision to go blonde was a spare of the moment between him and his team, quoted below.
“I was with some friend and out of now, here they started saying “You’re going to dye your hair, you’re going Saiyan style.
They said green and I replied yellow. They said that everyone dyes it yellow and then suggested platinum. I agreed and we all dyed it platinum.”

3 Tips for Maintaining Dyed Hair
Here are three tips to help you take care of your dyed hair (Always see a professional if unsure how to manage this yourself!)
Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Regular shampoos that contain sulfates that can strip away the colour from your hair, causing it to fade more quickly defeating the whole purpose.
Use sulfate free products since there designed to gently clean your hair without stripping away the dye.
Wash with Cool Water
When you wash your dyed hair, use cool or lukewarm water instead of hot water. This will help seal the hair cuticles resulting in colour being locked in.
While it might not be the most comfortable, it can make a significant difference in preserving your hair colour which is why we prefer you use a professional.
Limit Washing Frequency
Washing your hair too frequently is a big no no since this CAN lead to fading.
On days when you don’t wash your hair, consider using a dry shampoo to absorb excess oil to keep hair fresh.
Dry shampoos come in various forms, such as sprays and powders, and can help you maintain your hairstyle and colour while reducing the need for frequent washing.
