At first you probably thought buying black hair dye permanent or semi-permanent would be simple, but there’s actually so much choice it’s difficult to find the best black dye for hair; unless you know where to look!
In this guide we’re going to cover the best black dye for hair, natural black hair dye from the past and some great inspiration from celebrity black hair styles. By the end you’ll know exactly what black dye you want and how to get it.
Modern black hair dye permanent colors are actually very nutritious for your hair, some like the La Riche Directions black dyes are conditioning and designed for damaged hair. You really don’t need to worry about black hair color without chemicals. The black dye from Herman’s Amazing Semi-Permanent hair color is ammonia free and vegan friendly, for example.
There’s also a lot of choice when it comes to different hair dye colors that you just can’t get with natural black hair dye. You can go for a jet black color or more adventurous with hints of dark blue, purples or even greys! Ombre styles are very beautiful and work just as nicely with dark colors as pastel shades.
Our hair dyes are also very long-lasting. Natural Black dye from Crazy Color lasts for up to 8 washes – check out the tips for dying hair black at the end of this guide to find out how to keep the black dye color for even longer.
Brown hair is absolutely gorgeous but sometimes going a step darker can really do wonders for your appearance. Eyes pop, skin brightens, and a sleek curtain of jet black hair never fails to attract attention… and jealousy! Here are 3 celebrities who we admire for going from brown to black hair before and afterwards back to brown again.
Megan Fox, the stunning actress went from brown to black hair before and after starring in various films. We love her dark black hair! She kept her signature, long hair in the same style as always, dying it shiny with black dye. The style suited her tan skin and foxy fashion sense. For a similar color, take a look at Jet Black dye from Splat.
Jessie J is naturally dirty blonde/brunette. Who knew?! But her signature look is pure black hair. She’s gone from dark brown to black hair before and after trying various bright colors and even shaving all her hair off for charity. Her full fringe and long hair is easy to wear with any fashion style. Try Raven from Manic Panic for a glossy, full color that’s great to mix with other, bright shades in dip dye style. Fluorescent yellow and pinks contrast well with black.
Lily Allen has only really had 2 hair colors – brown and black. She’s gone from brown to black hair before and after her singing career in a variety of different styles. The dark black dye really makes her pale skin glow and contrasts beautifully with her usual colorful wardrobe. Lily proves that black hair isn’t just for goths. Take a look at Ebony Black from La Riche Directions for a soft, conditioning dye in a similar black color.
