How to Choose Black and Green Hair Color
Normally when you’re selecting your new hair color, you would visit a stylist and depending on how light or dark your complexion is, he or she will be able to advise whether that shade works for you or not.
Other things are also taken into account, for example, the quality of your hair, whether you have used bleach before, how often it has been colored and also how dark it is. You should also tell your hair stylist if you’re sensitive or allergic to any ingredients commonly found in hair dye, if you prefer to use a vegan brand of hair dye and other small details that make a big difference.
It’s obviously much easier to color hair that has a natural color, and you don’t have to strip the previous colored layers off before applying a new color.
With black and green hair dye, I would say it’s a safe bet for almost any type of complexion, especially if dark hair color is very close to your natural color. You should obviously aim to do a strand test first to see how the color works with your hair structure and what shade you can achieve.
There are a few different types of green shade options you can choose from, and I found that the darker shades tend to work better with darker hair. Too light green creates too much contrast with the dark hair, but if that’s the look you’re going for, by all means go for it!
Taking Care of Black and Green Hair
If you decide to go for this look, it’s important that you know some basic things about colored hair care, so the color doesn’t fade and your hair looks always healthy.
Here are some essential tips to follow:
- Use a quality shampoo and conditioner specially designed for colored hair
- Use a hydrating hair mask once or twice a week
- A regular visit to a hair stylist to trim any split ends is a must
- Avoid any heat on your hair if possible – it will dry it out even more
- Beware of pools – chlorinated water can do a lot of damage to colored hair, especially if you have lighter color tones
