Do you have to bleach your hair to dye it purple?

Bleaching hair to dye it purple is necessary if you have very dark hair, and you want to dye your hair pastel purple.

If your hair is not black, and/or you want to dye your hair dark purple, you can color hair purple without bleach, either by using temporary hair dyes or katam hair dye.

Warm purples are always easier to achieve, because they adapt to your natural color. Light purple is somewhat more complicated. However, if you have blonde hair, you will achieve a nice, light, even pastel purple by using either temporary hair colors such as Crazy color or Punk color, or by using a purple semi-permanent hair dye.

How to dye your hair purple with katam

To dye your hair purple with katam you will need a 2 steps application of henna and katam. First apply henna to your hair, then apply katam hair dye.

Here is how to dye your hair purple without bleach using katam hair dye:

Ingredients

  • a box of henna powder
  • a box of katam hair dye powder
  • water

Instructions

  1. mix henna and water in a bowl to form a paste
  2. let sit 30 minutes
  3. apply to hair
  4. let sit 5 hours
  5. rinse with water and dry
  6. mix katam with water and apply to hair immediately
  7. let sit 5 hours
  8. rinse with water only

By dyeing your hair with katam you will achieve a purplish color. The exact shade will depend on your base color. If you have black hair you will only get a few warm purple shades. If you have brown hair you will be able to get a nice dark purple color without bleaching. Henna helps enhance the purple color, and it is important to use it as a base if you really want to color hair purple without bleaching. Katam will fade over time, and you will achieve a stable color only after 3 applications. We recommend you apply katam once a month.
