How to Get Black Hair with Blue Tips How to Get Black Hair with Blue Tips How to Get Black Hair with Blue Tips

Dip dyed ends have been circulating as one of the hottest hair trends to hit 2017, with black and blue combos taking center stage. And we have to admit, we’re definitely a fan of this gorgeous look. That’s because with just a hint of color, blue ends can add a major pop to black strands. Ready to take the plunge and dye your black hair? Here’s what you need to know about the process from start to finish.

How to Dye Your Black Ends Blue

There’s just something super-pretty and mermaid-esque about black hair with blue tips. And you can get the look by visiting a professional colorist at a salon or DIYing it at home. It’s up to you to decide how you’d like to do it. If you’re comfortable with at-home hair color kits, then go ahead and have fun! But if you’re a color newbie, it might be a good idea to seek out a pro. If you go the pro route, bring in some photos of what you’re hoping your hair will look like so that you leave your appointment happy. Also, a pro can help you determine which shade of blue will complement your features best—and there are quite a few shades of blue out there!

If you decide you’d like to try your hand at coloring your hair at home, know that you’re going to need to bleach your black ends first so that the blue color will actually show up. Try the L'Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach and follow the directions on the box. Then, it’s time to paint your hair blue! Use the L'Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Aqua, L'Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Blue, or L'Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Indigo to help bring your black hair with blue tips to life.

How to Take Care of Your Black Hair with Blue Tips

Once you’ve colored your hair, you may want to switch up your hair care routine to help keep your mane in tip-top shape. Follow the below advice—and go ahead and show off those beautiful blue tips!

1. Use a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair. It’s time to put your regular ‘poo and conditioner aside in favor of ones that are specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo and L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner. Gently massage the shampoo into wet hair in the shower, then rinse and follow up with the conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for one two minutes, then rinse.

2. Add a hair mask to your weekly routine. Once or twice a week, swap out the L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner for the L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Ultra Recovery Mask. After shampooing with the L'Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo, apply the hair mask and leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse.

3. Rinse your hair with lukewarm water. A super-hot shower might feel relaxing, but it can strip your hair of essential oils, so lower the dial and wash your hair in lukewarm water instead.

4. Show off your waves or curls. Sure, sleek hair is one of our go-to styles, but dip dyed ends look particularly awesome when paired with some texture. So, put down your heat tools and embrace the hair you’ve been given! Want beachy waves? You don’t need to be anywhere near the ocean. Just spritz on the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to towel-dried hair, braid your hair, and let it air dry. If a little more volume is what you’re after, apply an egg-sized dollop of the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to wet hair, then flip your head over to scrunch before you let it air dry. We have a feeling your blow-dryer is going to gather a whole lot of dust in your drawer.
