Working Blue Hair Dye for Dark Hair
If your natural or current hair colour is quite dark, you will need to lighten your hair to achieve a bold dark blue hair colour. In actual fact, lightening your hair with bleach is recommended unless youíve got very pale blonde hair to start with. Semi-permanent dyes cover your existing hair colour rather than altering it, so getting the shade you want will be easier on pre-lightened hair. This can be achieved quite effectively with home bleaching kits, particularly if youíre only aiming to lighten a small section of your hair for an Ombre or blue highlighted effect.
One enormous advantage of using our semi-permanent dark blue hair dye brands as opposed to conventional permanent dye products is that they are kind to your hair! Many of the dyes in our range are free from harsh chemicals and actually work to sooth and condition your hair, leaving it soft and intensely shiny after each application. What a relief not to worry about damaging your hair when you want to top up your colour! Whether youíre using a navy blue hair dye or a royal blue hair dye, your show stopping colour can stay vibrant for weeks.
