Tips for Purple Hair
If your complexion has warm undertones such as olive or yellow, you should stick with warm shades such as magenta or lilac. For those with cool, or pinkish, undertones; cooler shades such as deep violet and pastel lavender will best suit your complexion. If you are blessed with neutral undertones, you can pretty much go with any shade of purple hair.
Purple hair tends to fade quickly so you might have to schedule frequent trips to the hair salon. Or make time to touch up your hair should you choose to do it yourself. However, once you see how gorgeous it is, it will be well worth the effort involved.
If your hair is naturally dark, you should bleach your hair before coloring it. It is advised to wait at least 24 hours between bleaching your hair and dyeing it. Also, keep in mind, that excessive bleaching will damage your hair. You should only bleach your hair once every six months to a year. If you wish to change your color, you should strip your hair between bleaching so as not to cause extra damage.
To maintain your gorgeous purple hair, you should avoid over-washing your hair. Shampoo your hair once or twice a week at most. Use color-safe dry shampoo between washings and never use products that contain sulfates as they will strip your hair color. Avoid heat and direct sunlight to help preserve your purple hair color and keep it hydrated. Use leave in conditioner to keep your hair healthy.
