Dyeing Grey Hair Blue / Purpleby BriaryPosted 1 month, 3 weeks ago
I am looking for a hair dye that will dye grey hair blue / purple etc. I have tried other things that fail to dye the greys.
Thank you, Briary.

Do you have other hair that you don't want dyed? It's tough to get a dye that will only touch the greys and nothing else, as greys tend to be resistant to absorbing dyes, so you need something very pigmented. I've had good luck with Punky Plum, but if you want to go really overboard, you could try Punky Ebony, which will go purple when diluted with conditioner.
Have you tried pre-soaking with peroxide? You also want to apply semi-permanent dyes to clean dry hair with no conditioner in it. Leave it in for several hours if you're having trouble with absorption. If you don't need developer, it's basically a coloured conditioner and won't do any damage.
