What is cinnamon hair?

Cinnamon hair is a medium shade of brown with a bit of orange thrown in. An untrained eye might confuse cinnamon hair with ginger, but these two are different. Ginger has more orange in it, while cinnamon has more brown. Cinnamon hair falls under the brown spectrum, with it being a shade lighter than auburn.

Because Pinays have naturally dark hair, bleaching may be done in order to achieve cinnamon hair. This can cause damage to your hair, as bleaching opens up the cuticles and makes hair rough, dry, and dull. Protect your hair from damage by using a conditioner that is specifically designed for colored hair.
