How to Dye Your Black Hair (Without Ruining It!)

While rich raven locks are enviably lovely, black-haired beauties sometimes feel the need to shake things up. Unfortunately, black hair is notoriously difficult to lift. Luckily, there are proven methods for lightening black hair to any shade on the colour spectrum.

Poor colouring attempts often lead to brittle, damaged hair. In some cases, the hair doesn’t even change colour. In other instances, the dye results in temporary lightening that fades quickly. Often, colouring leads to a completely unexpected final result, such as a muddy cherry tinge instead of auburn, dull, greyish highlights, or the dreaded orange of bleaching gone awry. Things get even trickier when you want to remove black hair dye rather than lighten naturally black hair. 

Either way, colouring black hair can be disastrous. Fortunately, there are reliable ways to dye black hair any colour you wish, and as such, you can have a wonderful experience. As long as you have a great colourist and a solid understanding of your hair, you can successfully achieve any colour from deep chocolate brown to platinum blonde. Here’s what you need to know to ensure your hair colouring goes off smoothly.
