If you are the bold type, you might be thinking outside of the box. Perhaps way outside of box as in “I wonder what my hair would look like if I dyed it blue?” Well, before you make the plunge, check out this video. Nefertiti Bourne colors her natural hair blue.

Do I need to bleach my hair before dying it blue?





If you have dark hair, then yes, you will need to bleach your hair before dying it blue. If you already have a color in your hair, you may need to use a color remover to get your hair back to its original color.

Black hair will most definitely require bleaching, but a lighter brown may not. It’s possible to get away without bleaching your hair first if you have a lighter hair color, however, it might not turn out the way you want. If you are unsure, it is best to go to your salon and ask one of the stylists.

Where can I find or buy blue hair dye?

You are more likely to find blue hair dye at a local salon. There are a few places online that do carry blue hair dye, but surprisingly, it’s not too many. Try here and here.

How can I remove blue hair dye from my skin?

There is no correct answer to this question, but many people have their theories. The most common theories are as follows:

-Cooking oil
-Shaving cream
-Nail polish remover/Rubbing alcohol
-Head and shoulders shampoo
-Peroxide

Keep in mind that these are only suggestions that people have made in the past. They may or may not work for you. It might be best to go to a salon and ask a professional. They will most likely be able to give you a ton of suggestions, and they may even have the supplies required to get it done.

How do I get rid of the blue dye in my hair?

You may be able to remove the blue dye using a color remover. Another option is bleaching your hair and dying it back to whatever color you desire. The majority of blue hair dyes – especially the ones you purchase online – are only semi-permanent and require a number of washes to get it out.

Make sure you read the label before dyeing your hair, so you know how long the color lasts. It may be that you do not even need to use a remover or bleach because it washes out fairly quickly.
