Dyeing Naturally Dark Hair – Where to Start?

If you’re new to the dyeing process, then worry not! We’ve compiled all you could ever need to know into this funky blog to help you on your way to your true expression of style! From the before you dye ‘do’s’ to the aftercare ‘don’ts’, this blog is designed to ensure your get the most out of your newly lightened locks!


Do I Need To Pre-Lighten/Bleach My Hair?

Many with naturally dark or already dyed, darkened hair choose to pre-lighten their hair to ensure that they get the most out of their newly selected shade! Here at Dye My Hair we truly believe that this is just a matter of preference! It’s not believed to be a necessity that you bleach or pre-lighten natural dark hair, however many do so to achieve a shade that’s highly similar, if not exactly the same, as the one exemplified by the colour swatch.

However, if this is a process that you feel you’d like to perform, we highly recommend that you keep your hair highly moisturised and conditioned. This is to ensure that your hair maintains its healthy stature, as quite often, the bleaching process can strip away at the hair follicles and leave your locks desperately damaged!

With a range of Bleach Kit’s available, such as the Crazy Color Bleaching Kit and the Manic Panic Flash Lightening Kit, your style is sure to never be the same again!


Which Shades Show Up The Best?

If you love to make a statement, then you’re sure to love our extensive range of Semi-Permanent Hair Dyes! From UV Reactive Dyes to Hair Chalks, there’s something for everyone and something for every existing hair shade!

Will The Lighter Tones Show?

If you’re worried that the lighter tones won’t show without pre-lightening or bleaching your hair first, we highly recommend that you stick to tones that offer highly pigmented and rich colours. This’ll prevent the overall shade looking washed out, and more importantly, prevent you from being disappointed!

However, if you’re looking for a more subtle, delicate and lightly dyed effect, we highly recommend utilising Splat’s range of Hair Dye’s. Despite lasting up to a whopping 6 weeks, these semi-permanent dyes provide a less intense effect on non-bleached hair!



Do I Need To Care For My Hair Differently?

 Nope! There’s nothing different that you need to do when caring for your recently dyed hair! Here at Dye My Hair we recommend that you always care for and maintain your hair the best you can, especially after a dye-job! Don’t forget that this is a taxing process for your luscious locks, so treating them good is the least you can do! Shampooing with sulphate free shampoos and maintaining a strict hair care regime will ensure that you get the most out of your newly unleashed style!


So, there you have it! Our whistle-stop run down of the best dye’s for dark hair! Regardless of whether you have naturally dark locks, or are just looking for a lighter shade to spruce up your style, we’ve got exactly what you need at Dye My Hair!
