Things To Keep In Mind While Dyeing Your Hair Purple

Dark hair color? Purple? There are things you must consider before going for it.

While dark hair color is indeed cool, with many celebs sporting it, it can be tricky because it may not suit you at all. That is the reason why you should think about your dedication. Dark hair color will not wash away easily. It will stay on for a long time. Are you prepared for it? Another thing to keep in mind is your natural hair color. If you have dark hair, purple is a good choice. If you have lighter hair, we recommend blue instead.
