Beauty is a term that may differ in different parts of the world. Hair coloring can be a great way to make your hair look more attractive. It’s also a good idea to use the right color for hair.
Purple hair color has been shown to affect hair health positively and is especially beneficial if looking at a long-term treatment for hair care.
If you previously dyed your hair blue or green and you want purple over these colors. I am going to share my personal experience in this article with you.
Can I Put Purple Over My Blue/Green Hair?
The answer is Yes! When you apply the right amount of purple hair dye, it will help you look more beautiful. But you have to know that you may not get the result the first time because there are rules.
According to the hair color wheel, only the opposite color can cancel another contrasting color altogether.
- Blue is opposite to Orange.
- Green is opposite to Red.
- Yellow is opposite to Purple.
This chart shows that blue hair color can be neutral by orange hair color, and yellow can be neutral by purple hair color.
So, if you want to use purple hair color over blue or green, it will give better results, and you will not remove the previous blue/green hair color.
How to Apply Purple Over Blue/Green Hair?
Last year I dyed my “virgin hair” (the hair never colored or natural hair color called virgin hair), black, thick, caucasian hair with a blue-green shade.
I have a friend that is wearing purple streaks in her hair, and it looks beautiful. I have also followed social media many girls are getting more attention and popularity with purple hair.
To follow the viral trend, I also want to purple over my blue-green hair color.
Then, I visited my regular salon and met my hair specialist. Firstly, he bleached my whole hair and applied for a hair developer.
He uses a strong 40-volume developer and a mid-level 30-volume developer on the root—finally, my dyed purple hair over the previous color shade.
The final result was so fantastic it was three shades (green-purple-blue) like the ocean.
