Before you go black: Things to keep in mind before applying that black hair dye
Do you dream of having jet-black locks? Black is a bold, dramatic hair colour that will leave you plenty of options when it comes to accessories and clothing choices. Read on for a few important things to keep in mind before you reach for that black hair dye.
There’s more than one shade of black
Contrary to what some may believe, there isn’t just one, single shade of black. Permanent black hair dye can come in a range of different hues, from a rich, chocolatey brown-black to a deep violet. The right shade for you depends on your natural colouring.
Fair skin looks beautiful with a warm, rich colour such as L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 4 Natural Brown. If you have a medium complexion, you can try L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 3 Natural Dark Brown for a warm, complementary shade, while if you have dark skin then you can opt for a true black such as L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème 1 Natural Black.
Black hair needs to be taken care of
Like any other shade of dyed hair, your newly-black hair will need some care to keep it looking as fabulous as possible. Use colour-protecting shampoo and conditioner regularly to keep your tresses healthy and hydrated. Hair masks are another great way to give your locks a little extra love, as they will strengthen and protect individual fibres, preventing split ends and keeping your hair shiny.
