Purple is a fun and sought-after color that can work with all hair types. It will give you a rock star look and evokes a certain cheeky attitude. It can be difficult to choose a purple dye because there are so many different shades. Choosing a purple hair dye for dark hair is even more challenging. While there are a lot of shades of purple, most can be broken down into three categories: vibrant, floral, and plum.

Let your inner wild child shine with bright, punchy neons. A vibrant dark violet hair color makes a statement everywhere you go. For most, it is the first thing that comes to mind when they think about purple hair dye. Katy Perry, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jessie J have all sported neon purple hair in recent years, helping popularize the style even further. Violet hair dye is perfect if you are looking for a sharp contrast or just for an all-around fun look.

Maintaining purple dyed-hair can be a lot of work, but it is often worth it. There is just something about purple hair that screams creativity and passion. Dyeing hair purple can be particularly challenging if your natural hair is on the darker side. We have compiled a quick and easy guide to purple hair dye for dark hair.

  1. Preparation: To maximize the color payoff, you need to bleach your hair before dyeing it. Since bleach takes a toll on your hair, you will want to treat your hair with conditioning products to help strengthen the hair fibres. This pre-bleach product will allow you to obtain the color statement you desire without causing unnecessary damage to your hair. We recommend products that are rich in keratin and protein.
  2. Bleaching: Usually when you paint a picture, you start with a white canvas. The same concept holds true when you are dyeing your hair. If you have dark hair, you want to make your hair as light as possible before dyeing it. This will allow the colors to reach their full potential. If you are going to take the effort to dramatically change the look of the hair, you want the dark violet hair color to truly shine. We recommend you lighten your hair to a level nine or ten.
  3. Toning: Use a hair toner after you bleach your hair. This will help remove any of the underlying hair tones that are left over after the bleaching process. These residual tones can interfere with the dyeing process, and you do not want the final look of the purple dye compromised in any way.

Keep in mind; it is important that once you choose a hair color to test it out before applying it all over your head. Whether you go with a light purple hair dye or a bright purple hair dye, you want to ensure that you love the color, otherwise you might end up stuck with a hair color you hate. It is a smart idea to patch test for at least a couple days. You could start out liking it initially, but then find the appeal lost after an hour. Conversely, you might not like the color at first, but then it grows on you.

You also want to make sure you have the right amount of product before you start dyeing your hair. There is nothing worse than running out of hair dye three-fourths into the process. Make sure you are prepared, otherwise, you’ll find yourself screaming and cursing. To help you feel your most prepared, we recommend talking to your fashion forward friends or your favorite hair stylist. They will often have lots of useful tips and suggestions that can make the process much easier for you. Now all that is left is for you to pick a color! Have fun with it and let your inner rebel shine. For more ideas, take a look at our social media.
