Monochromatic hair dye was so last year. Show your fun and adventurous side by dying your hair with crazy and head-turner colors like dark purple hair dye. Most of you probably tried and didn't get the expected result. Any shade of purple is one of the most notorious hair colors to achieve. Luckily, we'll teach you how to do it even without bleach.

Essential Factors to Consider Before Dyeing

1. Know Your Hair

It is crucial to recognize your current hair condition in order to somehow know the sort of outcome you will get. If your hair is in a kind of bad condition such as extremely dry, brittle or rough to the touch, you may need special care before dying.

Your current hair color is another important factor that impacts on the result. Lighter hair color, for example, will react very differently to darker hair. The fact that you are applying a dark purple hair dye without bleaching doesn't mean the outcome would be unpredictable.

Essential Factors to Consider Before Dyeing

2. Determine Your Hair Color

Choosing a hair color sounds very easy. However, Its shades will confuse you .For example, by adding a little dark or light to the purple, you will have other color shades. So, you should use a color chart to describe exactly the color you want. By doing this, Hair stylists can understand what you want and give you the best result. 

Make sure that the color you choose suits your skin tone. As an expert with more than 10 years in the hair industry I met a lot of women who glowed down because of choosing the wrong color. If you do not have experience in this aspect, you can refer to a professional hair stylist.

3. Before Doing Anything, Do a Patch Testing

Patch testing is recommended before doing anything to your hair, as you might get an unwanted reaction due to chemical exposure to your skin. It is best to do the patch testing behind the ears or within your inside elbows' skin because this area is more sensitive than the others.

Why do you need to do a patch test? Paraphenylenediamine, also known as PPD, is a chemical found in almost all hair color products. At the absolute worst, it can trigger a significant allergic response and may damage your skin depending on the severity of the reaction.

Apply a small amount of the dark purple hair dye to the said skin areas, and wait for it to dry for at least 5 to 10 minutes. After it dries or after 10 minutes, there has been no allergic reaction such as reddening of the skin, swelling, difficulty of breathing, and/or nausea, you are safe to proceed to the next step.

4. Next, Strand Testing (OPTIONAL)

This next step is for those who are still unsure whether the shade of dark purple hair dye will suit them or are hesitant about what would be the color result. Get a small number of hair strands and the desired amount of dark purple hair dye, apply it to the hair strands, and leave it on for the next 20 minutes.

If the color result meets your expected outcome, you can now dye your entire hair.
