Kim Kardashian Goes Back to Brunette

Kim Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of herself this week. And everything about the photo is classic Kim Kardashian — right down to her signature open-mouthed duckface (perfected over the course of thousands of selfies) and rich brunette hair color. But no, this isn’t a Throwback Thursday picture. The star has ditched her Vogue-inspired blonde strands to return to her roots, so to speak.

The reality star has sported a heavily highlighted blonde hairdo, with dark roots and under-layer, over the past five months. However, it’s received mixed reactions from PEOPLE commenters. Some liked her lighter, brighter hairstyle, while others felt it changed her overall look too much. That skeptical fan reaction may be why Kardashian captioned her Saturday Instagram selfie “I’m back.”

She’s still not quite back to the super-dark brunette she was wearing about a year ago. Her new color is still honey-tinged, with a slight ombré effect. But it still should be a big enough change to make Kardashian hair purists happy. Don’t get too comfortable though. When a fan asked her on Twitter Saturday if she’d return to blonde in the future, she responded “Absolutely! I loved it!”

Are you glad she’s back to brunette? Tell us in the comments!

Dean’s comment about her spending more time with her baby is spot on!! How many hours of every single day does this woman spend applying makeup??? She is so vain and self-absorbed, you would never think she actually cares about the human life she created.

Selfie. Pose pout and post. I’m so absorbed with my looks. Gag.

I condone nothing this woman does for publicity, but I will say she really is stunning. Just gorgeous. Love her hair darker like this.

Black men have a lot of self hate inside them, that is why you see them marrying outside their race at 3-4 times more than other races. Black men hate the color of their skin, so they think by marrying white or lighter skinned woman, that their children won’t have to deal with the discrimiation that black men occur.

Wow! There are bigger problems in the world other than Kim Kardashian, a reality star who does nothing or very little to help those in need, and her hair.
