How I Dyed My Hair Purple

I dyed the tips of my hair purple over a month ago but I wanted to write about it in case some of you were thinking about dying your tips a different color. I've been seeing this trend a lot recently and I thought I'd share what I did to get my hair like this! PS. You WILL be damaging your hair no matter what. Just saying.

Step 1: If you have dark hair, like myself, then you would have to bleach the ends of your hair first in order for the color to show. I took a scoop of bleach and added some developer (I don't have exact measurements but continue to add developer until it has a smooth consistency). 

Step 2: Apply the dye about 1.5 inches up the tips of your hair and wait for around 20 minutes. Gradually add more dye up the hair (around 1 inch every 20 minutes) so your hair would have a more ombre effect. TIP: I used a toothbrush to create a natural blend. If you are satisfied with what it looks like feel free to stop whenever you want or keep the bleach on for a longer period of time. Make sure you don't leave the bleach in your hair for too long because it will fry your hair! Next, wash out the bleach with shampoo and air dry it to avoid damaging your hair further.

Step 3: Apply a generous amount of toner and leave it on for 45 minutes (or desired time). Wash out the toner and air dry once again. 

Step 4: Now for the fun part, I wanted a lavender color so I put conditioner in a bowl and mixed it with a pea size amount of the hair dye. Make sure you use as much conditioner you think you'll need in order to cover how ever much hair you will be covering (I hope that made sense). Apply the dye (make sure you have gloves on by the way) and leave it in your hair for about 20-30 minutes. Rinse with shampoo when you have your desired look and whoohoo you have purple hair now (or whatever color you want)!!

Disclaimer: Because this is a temporary hair dye, it will fade with every wash. But feel free to repeat Step 4 every time you want to add more color to your hair!

The Products I Used 


  1. it looks so good! i really like the slight ombre effect with the pink shades

  2. I love it! It looks so good on you, I dyed my hair 2 years ago for an ombre effect. I really liked it but it really damaged my hair.. and I was just too lazy to buy some good products for my hair haha! I shouldn't do that tbh now, i'm older and getting the point of using good products. But they're so expensive.. that's sucks :(

    Now I want to have grey hair. Idk if I should do it. What does the toner btw? The girl in the hairdresser shop said that I shouldn't use toner but use silver shampoo instead. It's confusing haha

  4. Wow, love that colour! Looks awesome! I had my hair dyed purple underneath by my hairdresser... I don't think I have the guts to do it myself! ha ha

  5. wow your hair looks awesome! I was interested in doing this too and I was just wondering, how long did it take for the purple to fade completely? and did it leave a weird tint in your hair? cause i can only do this if it will completely wash out. Thanks!!

    1. it took about 1- 1 1/2 weeks to fade completely i believe and i have this pink tint to my hair in some parts haha
