If you’re a fan of fun hair colors, we have just the mane makeover for you: indigo hair! This deep, jean-colored hue is taking over our social media feeds this year, and we understand why. Even better, it’s totally possible to DIY an indigo hair color at home—with the help of the right hair coloring kit, of course. Below, find out exactly what getting indigo blue hair is, then learn how to use a L’Oréal Paris indigo hair dye to get the look for yourself. Happy coloring!
Before we talk about how to get it, you probably want the details on what an indigo blue hair color is. If you remember learning about all the colors in the rainbow, you can probably guess that this hair color involves a combination of deep blue and purple tones that come together for a gorgeous indigo shade. It’s also customizable—you can add an array of blue and purple highlights and lowlights to personalize the hue and add even more dimension. Talk about making heart eyes! This bold hair color reminds us of the midnight sky—and we can’t get enough of it. If you feel likewise, keep reading.
Giving indigo hair a try is easy—you can even do it at home! That said, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you want to experiment with varying tones (we’ll talk more about different indigo hair color ideas later), you may want to head to a professional. Also, depending on your starting color, you may have to lighten your strands with bleach to achieve the most accurate and vibrant indigo hue.
If your goal is an all-over indigo hair color and you’re starting with blonde hair, you’re in luck! The L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Indigo is an easy at-home indigo hair dye option to help you bring your trendy tresses to life. The semi-permanent hair color kit is ammonia-free and gradually fades with each shampoo, so you don’t have to worry about committing to such a bold hair color for the long haul. The color lasts through seven to 15 shampoos.
Want some more indigo hair color inspiration? Here are three of our favorite indigo hair ideas in case you want something different than all-over color.
To try the indigo hair color trend without committing to constant touchups, consider giving indigo balayage a try. This highlighting technique involves your stylist hand-painting indigo highlights throughout your mane, where the sun would naturally hit. The seamless transition from your roots to the highlights means there will be no harsh line of demarcation as your hair starts to grow.
Prefer to keep your indigo hair on the down-low? Look no further than peek-a-boo indigo hair. This coloring method involves using indigo hair dye on the underneath layer of your hair—meaning no one will see the purple-meets-blue hue unless you wear your hair up!
One of the most low-commitment ways to try indigo hair is dip-dye ends. This means coloring just the ends of your mane in a shade of indigo. We especially love this carefree, two-toned look for summer. When you’re ready to part ways with your indigo hair color, all you need to do is book a trip to the salon and snip it off. Hey, it was probably time for a trim anyway!
What about hair care? As you can probably guess, having indigo hair means you’ll want to switch up your go-to regimen a bit. Here are our top tips.
If you’ve decided to commit to indigo hair, make sure you grab a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner.
Colored hair calls for some extra TLC in the hair care department, which is where a hair mask comes in. A few times a week, swap the above conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Just because you’re turning down the heat doesn’t mean you can’t turn up the style! For a heat-free hairstyle that’s sure to turn heads when paired with your indigo locks, consider rocking double Dutch pigtails. Paired with your trendy new color, this nostalgia-inducing style is just perfect.
