Hello everyone, I need your help.
Few years ago I used to have purple hair using Direction Plum. I also used black box dye on my roots and I loved the way it looked. The problem was that when the black grew quite a bit, it didnt look so good anymore. Getting rid of it was pain. Now my hair is Violet using Pravanas Violet in the whole length, but I would really love to get the black roots again. I am looking for a black dye, that will eventually fade out and I will be able to overlap it with the Violet again so the black will only stay at my roots and wont grow to the lengths.
Any suggestions on the black dye? I do have Pravanas black additive, I used 1/3 of the tube to darken the Violet, but it did nothing at all. Also any other tips will be greatly appreciated
Heres a picture of me when I used the black box dye on Directions and thats how Id love it to look like now except for the black to be able to fade
What color are the roots naturally since mention, when the black grew quite a bit, wont grow to the lengths? I do not fully understand what you are asking.
Dye brands I would suggest include Pravna, Joico, Directions, Punky Color, Adore, and Arctic Fox. Though I have never known a semi-permanent black dye to fade quickly or fade a lot.
These are my suggestions.
The roots are naturally ashy brown, not really nice colour to go nicely with the violet. the black is box dye and as the hair grew, i only touched up my roots with the box dye for months and then the black part of the hair became just too long. Unfortunetly I do not have any picture like that. English is not my mother tongue so Im not sure how to put it together to be easy to understand >.<
Have a look at Ion Blackest Black as it is purple toned black and very dark. It is a semi and works well for shadow roots. https://www.sallybeauty.com/hair/hair-color/semi-and-demi-hair-color/blackest-black-semi-permanent-hair-color/SBS-405079.html
Other options are Pravana and Adore Black Velvet. Punky Colours also has a very deep steely blue charcoal called Ebony that might be nice to try as well.
thank you very much, I will give this a try :)
