Hey,
I have black hair that is rly thick and about half an inch after my shoulders. Does anyone have any suggestions for what colour/colours I should dye it. It would be great if you could attach some examples. Also if you could recommend a cheap but good hair dye as I am doing it at home.
Thank youuuuuu

Did you want to use permanent or semi-permanent dye? Schwarzkopf live is the least messy semi permanent one so far - keep in mind that they don't provide plastic gloves rn because of corona! I haven't used many permanent dyes - just a Schwarzkopf one and garnier and both are good.

Are you dyeing the whole hair or just the ends? I wouldn't suggest bleaching up to the scalp at home because it can be really damaging and your scalp can peel off, especially if it's black hair where you'd have to bleach it twice to get a vibrant colour (I've done that ombre style at home and it's so damaging).

If you're bleaching, I'd suggest Jerome Russel - it's a really reliable brand.

If you are only dyeing half your hair, pretty much any colour would suit you as any colour goes with black. I have black hair and I've ombred to red, pink, blue and purple! What's your complexion?

Just as a small tip, bleach your hair slightly lighter than the shade you want, then dye it - hopefully it will turn out okay without any brassiness! You're welcome and good luck

You said you have black hair so you will need to bleach it before you apply pretty much any colour.

Lilac is a pastel colour, so you'll have to bleach it to quite a light blonde....be very careful it's v likely that your hair will snap of at the ends (it's done that for me, it's not as bad as it sounds - your hair just goes very dry). To dye black hair any colour you'll have to bleach it I'm afraid. I'd suggest using olaplex or pureplex (from superdrug) after bleaching. Just wondering which brand of dye you're gonna be using?
