A trained psychologist who goes by the name Dr. Vivian Diller says that dyeing your hair can become a very addictive procedure. She goes on to reiterate her point but explaining that one that becomes part of your daily routine, you would be become accustomed to dyeing just as you are accustomed to eating, grooming and working. She says that the activities listed above become a habit after a long time of practice and so does dyeing your hair.
She goes on to say that some factors can influence the way individuals dye their hair. One of such factors is boredom. When people get tired of having a certain predictable look at all times, they will begin to dye their hair.

Another psychological effect of dyeing your hair is self-confidence.
Some scientific research that was conducted by the Nottingham Trent University shows that ladies who are in the age bracket of 25 and 66 have a boost in self-confidence after they have dyed their hair.

Most of the women agreed that they wouldn’t mind giving some stranger in the street a helping hand. In fact, dyeing their hair would make them more open to doing that.
Also, it was discovered that ladies who dyed their hair would be a lot more confident when they wanted to ask for a promotion or salary raise at their places of work.
And it doesn’t end there; it was also discovered that ladies who dyed their hair were more likely to establish and defend their boundaries when it came to their relationship partners or friends and family.
Another psychological effect of dyeing your hair is that it makes you feel sexy.
The scientific study conducted by Nottingham Trent University goes on to state that as much as women get confident when they dye their hair, they are also sexually exciting, attractive and obstinate. In fact, they performed better in the workplace because they do receive criticism and become better instead of crumbling under pressure.
Half of the ladies that volunteered for this study said that they would take the initiative to ask someone out on a date or initiate sex if they have dyed their hair.
