Half And Half Black And Purple Hair

Anyone familiar with the anime culture would most likely love this idea of an anime girl with half black and purple hair.

How to pick the best colour combination?

There are plenty of rules on navigating the color palette and using it for your particular skin tone and eye color. However, we want to talk about something different here. Have you heard of scheme colors as triadic, monochromatic, or complementary? If yes, the essential part of the job is done!

While it might be beneficial to use soft autumn or cool winter palettes for regular hair color dying, there are different rules with the half and half hair colors. Nothing is too complicated, but when picking the tones for half and half hair, don’t forget to open at least one of the seven color schemes and check if the selected colors are 100% matching and complementing each other. Also, remember that they will wash off with some time, so pick the colors that would not blacken or muffle each other.

How to take care of half and half dyed hair?

The most crucial part of choosing a half-and-half coloring scheme is understanding the importance of using specific products to keep up the intensity of the colors. No magic product would work for each hair type and color.

So when you’re picking the shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in mask, pay attention to the pigments that those products have and the number of sulfates, ammonium chloride, and glycol. There are vital ingredients that can help or damage intensely colorful hair.

How to style half and half coloured hair?

You can be sure you will have enormous styling options with the half and half hair, whether it’s died vertically, horizontally, or in under-layers! From the textured beach waves to the soft and glamorous Hollywood curls, from messy half-up side buns to an elegant, sophisticated braiding or a casual ponytail – half and half hair give you true freedom to your styling imagination.
