Along with this shade, it is crucial for black girls to choose the right outfit which can suit their complexion. I would recommend you to check these amazing outfit ideas for black girls. We’re sure that the ideas below will make you dye your hair purple today, but first, you need to know some tips for choosing the right color and taking care of your purple hair:

  • Before going for the dye, select a color that works well with your skin tone. For instance, lilac is a delicate shade which does not work well for most skin tones. By choosing the right color, you can really flatter your skin tone.
  • Prepare your hair well before the dye by oiling or moisturizing it for at least a month. Try to avoid the bleach or use as little of it as possible.
  • Do be mentally prepared that the purple color is likely to fade in a few days, and it will most probably stain everything such as your pillows and towels.
  • If you want to keep the color for as long as possible, choose color-safe shampoos and conditioners and was your hair with cold water. It’s better to avoid washing as much as you can though, the same goes for water activities like swimming.
  • Nonetheless, all this trouble is worth the excellent look for sure.

Let’s see the collection now, starting with some celebrity style inspiration.
