How To Get Silver Purple Hair At Home
Before you start your journey to achieve this gorgeous hair color, it’s essential to know what it entails by figuring out what style you want first. Some popular ways to wear it is by having soft purple roots that fade into silver ends. Another option involves an all-over icy purple shade with darker roots that perfectly captures the look of both hair colors.
Going for a lighter hue means you’ll need to start by using bleach, especially when working with a darker base color. Then you’ll have to follow up by mixing the two shades to get the color you want. Since this look requires specific techniques and skills, we recommend booking an appointment with your colorist. On the other hand, if you’re interested in experimenting with temporary hair color, you can quickly bring silver purple locks to life at home. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Purple and Silver.
Since these shades wash out after one shampoo, there is no need to worry about harming your strands or committing to this color. To apply, start by spraying the purple shade onto your roots and fading the color into your mid-lengths. Finish up with silver on your ends, blending the two colors where they meet, and you’ll have a gorgeous silver purple hue.
How To Take Care Of Silver Purple Hair
When permanently dyeing your strands, it’s essential to upgrade your hair care routine to ensure that you’re taking care of your mane properly. Start by swapping out your regular hair care products for color-safe options to prevent damage and help extend the color wear. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive
