If you want your hair to make a statement, you can’t get much bolder than bright blue. Like a lot of vibrant hues, bright blue hair is a colour that is traditionally associated with punks and Goths. However, it’s also becoming a more mainstream colour effect so everyone can try it out. With a variety of modern colours to choose from, you can create a number of different looks using bright blue hair dye. Plus, if you choose a smart acting hair dye, blue hair doesn’t need to come with all the chemical damage. Has there ever been a better time to have the blues?

Bright Blue Hair Dye for Dark Hair

Once upon a time, it was virtually impossible for brunettes to achieve a bright blue hair colour without the help of bleach. However, with new hair dying technology, there’s no need for brunettes to frazzle their hair in the name of gorgeous colour. Instead, brunettes can now use direct hair dyes that’ll let them enjoy bright blue hair without using a single drop of bleach. Yup, that’s right, bright blue hair dye for dark hair has arrived!

But what is this wizardry, you might be asking? A direct hair dye works by depositing the hair dye straight onto the hair without using a developer. Because of this, the colour is super rich and vivid and doesn’t require any coaxing from bleach.

Most beauty aficionados agree that Splat is the best blue hair dye for dark hair. This is a semi permanent blue hair dye that deposits finely milled micro pigments into your hair strands for a bold and vivid colour. After using this direct dye, you’ll have a bright blue hair colour that’ll last up to 6 weeks.

On the quest for the best bright hair dye, UK bloggers agree that Splat’s Blue Envy Hair Dye Kit and Splat’s Ombre Ocean in Blue Crush/Midnight Reef can’t be beaten!

Tips for Achieving a Bright Blue Hair Colour

Even if you use the best bright blue hair dye on the market, there are still some tips you should follow if you want a colour that really shines!

  • It usually goes that the lighter the hair, the better the colour. However, blondes should approach direct dyes like Splat’s with caution. These dyes are extremely pigmented and the vibrancy could end up being too much. 
  • If you’re a brunette trying to achieve a bright blue colour with a traditional permanent hair dye, you’ll need to use some bleach. However, you can minimise the damage by using lighter bleach or leaving the bleach on for less time. 
  • The healthier the hair, the better the colour. If you’re planning to use a bright hair dye, you should prepare your hair with some deep conditioner and lay off the heat in the weeks leading up to your dye job.

How to Maintain a Bright Blue Hair Colour

Girls who love bright hair are well aware of the inconvenient truth that colour fades. It’s completely unavoidable and, sadly, even the best bright hair dye won’t last forever. However, there are some steps that you can take to make your colour last for longer.

  • Rinse your hair with cool water: Both when you’re applying your bright blue hair dye and when you’re shampooing, you should make sure to rinse your hair with cool water. Since hot water opens up the hair follicle, lots of colour can escape. To keep your bright blue hair colour locked into the hair’s shaft, turn down that temperature nozzle!
  • Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner: The sulfates found in most mainstream shampoos can strip your hair of its goodness during the cleaning process. Not only will the sulfates strip away your hair’s natural oils, they’ll also strip away your bright blue hair dye, too. Fortunately, switching to a sulfate-free shampoo doesn’t need to be expensive. Lots of shampoo brands now stock sulfate-free options at a regular price.
  • Be careful with heat: Heat can seriously damage both your hair and its colour. However, if you’re trying to achieve bouncy curls, sometimes you just need the extra help of a curling wand. To save your hair, make sure to use a heat protecting product. (Although, we do recommend avoiding heated appliances completely). Heat-free styles like fishtail braids and messy buns look amazing with bright blue hair.
