How To Get Purple Tint On Black Hair?

Purple hair became fashionable in the 1970s. Still, the trend has recently been revitalized after Katy Perry, Kylie Jenner, and Jessie J were spotted wearing various shades of eggplant, violet tint hair, and amethyst-colored lilac hair. While amethyst-colored lilac tones were more popular, dark purple hair is now in the spotlight! 

This is fantastic news for those with dark, black, or brown hair, as dying black hair with purple tint is quite simple! I’ve compiled a list of the best purple hair dyes for dark hair to help you get the perfect hue, ranging from royal purple to deep lilac.

There isn’t a single approach to get a black hair with purple tint masterpiece with your hair. A few factors will influence how you get the look.

Natural Hair Shade

Getting black and purple hair is significantly easier if you have black hair, to begin with. If you don’t already have black hair, the first step is to dye your hair black. Then, you get black hair dye with purple tinted hair easily.

How Long Do You Want Your Look To Last? 

Although black with purple tint hair can be somewhat daring, it’s understandable if you just wish to wear it for a limited time. Which sort of hair color you choose will depend on how long you want to follow this trend: temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent.

DIY Your Hair Color

Black and purple hair is an easy DIY trend for people confident with at-home hair color.

Is Applying Bleach Before Dye Mandatory?

Want to achieve the look without first lightening your black hair? That is possible; however, it will affect your desired hair color.

The Look You Want

There are several methods for blending purple with a black base, each of which is done slightly differently.

Consider These 3 Factors Before Dying Your Hair

Carry Out A patch Test Before Dying Your Hair

Even if you’ve used the brand before, you should always do a patch test before dyeing your hair with a semi-permanent or permanent hair dye.

A patch test entails applying a small amount of the solution to the inside of your elbow and allowing it to dry. The test will be explained in detail for each dye.

Before you apply the color to your hair, the test will indicate whether you are likely to have an allergic reaction to any of the dye’s ingredients. Do not use the solution if you experience irritation or become upset after the patch test!

Half-and-half hair hues have been sweeping the beauty world—and no, we’re not talking about strands that look like a specific childhood nemesis. This hair color technique involves parting your hair down the middle and coloring one side of your mane differently from the other! Consider the contrast. The trick to pulling off this daring style is choosing two complimentary colors, black and purple.

If you have naturally black strands, you can try out the color combination by coloring half of your hair with L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Purple or Lilac.

Peek-a-boo Black And Purple Hair

The peek-a-boo hair trend is another gentle approach to experiment with black and purple hair. This hair color option entails using a purple hair dye to color the underlying layer of your hair. You’ll need to bleach your black hair’s bottom layer first. Wait at least 14 days after lightening your hair before applying purple hair dye. When you’ve had enough time, apply the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Violet to have your purple dose.

Black Hair Purple Undertones

How To Get Black Hair Dye With Purple Tint?

Now that you know what to think about it, it’s time to color your hair! Hopefully, you’ve made all of your choices and are ready to leave! I’ll show you how to color your black hair with purple tint in a step-by-step tutorial below!

Step 1: Change Your Clothes

Changing your attire could be one of the best parts you can do! Just an extra precaution to keep your clothes from getting ruined. You’re ready to go on to step 2 now that you’ve gathered some clothes you don’t care about.

Step 2: Gather Supplies You’ll Need For Your Hair Dye

You’re going to receive your dye supplies in this phase! You’ll need your favorite purple shade (or several if you’re planning to mix it). To make the purple you want, use the Splat hair dye “lusty lavender” and the Punky color “Plum,” for example.

A black hair dye, a bleaching cream, and a 30 volume cream developer are also needed. You’ll additionally require the following items. All necessary are hair clips and elastics to divide your hair, a dye brush, a dye bowl, vaseline (to cover your hairline because you don’t want the color to get everywhere! ), gloves, and a shower cap.

Ensure you have the correct colors! I know it sounds foolish, but if you make a mistake here, there’s no turning back.

Step 3: Sectioning Your Hair

Taking a bundle of hair that you wish to dye purple and wrapping it in aluminum foil is an easy way to get started. They’ll be safe from black hair dye this way. The clips and elastics I mentioned in step 2 might be useful here. They’ll help you keep everything in position.

Step 4 & 5: Mix Black Dye Then Apply

Follow the black hair dye instructions on the box. Combine all of the ingredients, and you’re ready to go! If you’ve finished all the instructions, you can apply the black color to your hair. 

Step 6: Wear Shower Cap

Allow the black hair dye to set for a few minutes. This is when you should put on the shower cap to keep your hair moisturized. Ensure the aluminum foil-wrapped hair bundles are hanging outside the shower cap. Allow the dye to sit in your hair for the period specified on the box. After that, it’s time to rinse everything out!

Step 7: Bleach The Streaks

Now comes the exciting part. You can dry your hair and remove the aluminum foil once you’ve rinsed it. After that, bleach every streak until it turns a light blonde tone. After that, wait around 40 minutes for the bleach to do its thing before rinsing it out.

Step 8: Apply Purple Dye

It’s now time to use the purple color! Allow the hair color to develop after applying it, and double-check that you’ve covered everything. Reapply your shower cap to keep the moisture in. It may appear hilarious, but it works! You can keep the hair dye on overnight for maximum purple power.

Step 9: Rinse & See The Final Result

You may wash all the hair dye out of your hair when you’ve woken up, dry it, and enjoy the results!

Can Black With Purple Tint Hair Fade Out In A Weird Color?

You have nothing to be concerned about if you think the fading of the hair color will be odd. Because your hair will still be black, the purple hair color can’t fade into a weird color (although with a little purple in it). It will fade to a more rosy or blueish color as the purple fades, but it will always seem black except in intense light.

As I previously stated, some people aren’t satisfied with just a tiny little bit of purple. Some people simply want their hair to be a true blend of black and purple. When I see images of it, I have to confess that it amazes me. However, for those who want to learn how to do it, I’ve already created a simple technique above that you can use to make your hair a mixture of black and purple! 

What Do You Do If You Want To Get A Little More Intense Purple Tinted Black Hair?

You can just do what I stated above if you only want black hair with purple tints. You can use a purple hair dye on your black hair and leave it to sit for as long as it needs to.

If you want it to stand out, even more, pre-bleach the purple to medium brown streaks in your hair. After that, you can color it in with whatever purple shade you choose. The purple color will be more evident this way. The steps to do so are outlined above. Even if those steps turn your hair black and purple, you can make the purple more evident than just a tint by adjusting the steps.
