I was thinking about what it would look like and I can't imagine it, I've occasionally seen some black people with like blonde hair or girls with like red hair but I've never seen a black or brown person with like dyed hair, why does it rarely happen?

Is it cultural or does it just not look as good?

Yeah I mean I know Rihanna the singer and some footballers, but never like crazy neon colours. Like its more likely to see a lighter person with like blue, green or like idek what else hair.

I'm trying to find a way of saying "black skin doesn't really compliment bright coloured hair very well" that doesn't sound a bit iffy/edgy to me but I can't bloody do it so here

Oh so is it just not popular amongst certain communities, makes sense.

Because they know they look fit in their natural hair colour

Well I don't see it that way but ok. Maybe it's your area or something? I constantly see it. What culture do you think dark-skinned people may have that restricts them from dyeing their hair, and what culture encourages it?

Asians tend to be more traditional as far as I know, or wear headscarves for girls.

Guys might think its feminine or something.

Lol well that is because it might be their culture, but dark black people especially like Caribbeans constantly get it

Are we talking about black people or Asians when you say dark.
Asians obviously probably can't, but yes black dark people have many times done their hair in all sorts of colours lol

I mean anyone with a 'darker' skin tone, anyone who's skin is darker than say Zayn Malik.

So basically anyone who isn't like White or East Asian.

It's quite hard to dye naturally dark hair bright colours without a lot of bleach and damage, whereas naturally blonde or light hair goes pink/lilac etc quite easily.

Well I have curly/afro hair and I have enver died it because 1) My natural hair colour is amazing, and I have natural highlights
2) Dying my hair would damage it, which is why I like to war weave sometimes
