Hair Dye Colors For Black Hair

Dying your hair black is one way to create a very dramatic look, and for many different types of skin tones black hair is flattering. However, if you don't naturally have very dark hair, it can be a big mistake to use permanent hair dye to dye your hair black. Black hair dye is one of the most difficult colors to remove from your hair. This is because the pigment is so saturated that it clings to your hair strands and it penetrates deep into the hair shaft. If you decide to change your hair color after dying it black it won't be as easy as simply applying a new hair color treatment.
Removing black hair dye will usually need to start by bleaching out the black hair pigments. This will be a long process that has the potential to severely weaken your hair. As each layer of coloring is bleached away you will notice that your hair will change to various colors of red, orange and finally white. Once you reach a light shade you can then add hair coloring that is closer to your natural coloring. If you don't have a lot of experience with hair dye then you may want to go to a salon to remove the black coloring from your hair. They will not only be able to use professional strength bleaches and color removers, but they also will be able to treat and condition your hair after the harsh process of removing the coloring from your hair.
In addition to bleaching products that you can buy from a supermarket or from a department store there are also products that are designed to remove hair color. Some of these products include Color Fix and Color Zap. Make sure that you read the instructions on these products carefully before you use them.
