Purple Hair Part 2...

by - 3:30 PM

So, I know I've already dyed my hair purple...but I just couldn't stay away. If you know me, then this is old news. I figured it was worth sharing anyways. Last time, it just wasn't as vibrant as I had hoped for. I still loved the way it looked, but I couldn't get the idea of having entirely purple hair out of my head. After a lot of YouTube research, I decided that my best shot was using a mix of the Punky Color dyes in Plum and Violet (I'll leave the video of that example down below). Violet is a more blue-based purple, and Plum is a pinker looking purple. It took almost all of those two containers to cover my whole head with dye. My hair turned out to lean towards a blue-toned purple. It couldn't have turned out any better. The all over purple lasted about 2 weeks, and the ends stayed purple for a while after that. I eventually decided to start using dandruff shampoo to strip the color out because I missed my ombre, so I couldn't tell you how long it actually lasts overall. This color is a great option for girls who don't want to bleach their hair and want a temporary color. I figured college was the best time to do this, so I went for it. Here's how it turned out.

 



P.S. If you are thinking about using this dye, know that it runs like crazy. This is a quality of a lot of purple dyes in general because the molecules of purples and reds are bigger than other dyes which just means they don't grip your hair as well. I woke up with purple spots on my face for the first week, my neck was purple for the first two, and I had to sleep on a towel for 3 weeks. I stained our whole shower. For me, it ended up being worth it, but it was more trouble than I was expecting.
If you've got any questions, I'd love to answer them. Just leave them in the comments below!

    1. I know it is probably too late to be answering this...I got distracted in graduate school I'm so sorry haha I think I left it on for a bout an hour and a half. I really just set out to leave it on for as long as I could stand it because it does get kind of annoying at a point.
