Blue to purpleby EmilyTKPosted 1 year, 5 months ago
hello, so yes im deciding to dye my hair again however i have no idea what would be the best way to go about it. Ideally I would want to achieve this kind of purple
Whilst she does list the products she used (and suggests purple rain from artic fox, because she made it to be like that kind of purple) I’m not sure if putting a straight up purple dye over blue would just send it blue again or if it would be best to put a red dye over the top.
I attached the a photo of my current blue, please ignore how nasty looking my hair is, I need to get my roots touched up at some point.
I do plan on potentially lightening if need be with dish soap, do you think this would be necessary or no?

You cannot 'lighten' your hair with dish soap, you can fade the dye you have in your hair now if thats what you're referring to. I think it will be necessary because their is a slight green tone to your hair that will need to be faded or the purple will not show up well. Their are articles in this site about ways to fade your hair that you might find helpful.
I personally think a red dye would work but it's hard to tell, and if you can do a strand test will give you a better idea of how it would turn out. It also will depend on how much time and effort you want to take to fade what is on your hair now.
But their are also some great people on this forum who might have dye suggestions for you to use, so hopefully someone else can chime in with their ideas and advice.

get a warm purple like punky plum, or a magenta like special effects virgin rose do some strand tests but you should be able to go purple really easily especially that dark shade, the key is pink based purple over it, or maybe straight pink like manic panic hot hot pink, I would not suggest red unless you want a more natural burgundy shade the key to purple from blue is pink
