A few things are as striking and memorable as a head of green hair. When you think it’s time to change your appearance and go back to your natural roots, the problem comes up.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT PURPLE DYE OVER GREEN HAIR?
Some colors clash, making your hair look even worse. What about colors that complement each other? We’ll go through what occurs when you put purple dye on green hair…
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF GREEN HAIR?
The color of envy is green hair. The shade is a reflection of your adventurous spirit and readiness to try new things. A genuinely wonderful color that makes you feel energized, powerful, and assured.
Green hair is a trend that a lot of people are trying out these days. It’s the new black, and it’s here to stay!
WHAT COLOR SHOULD YOU DYE YOUR HAIR IF YOU HAVE GREEN HAIR?
OK, life becomes complicated when it comes to getting rid of green hair.
Green hair is a color that requires dedication. It’s quite difficult to get out of your hair once it’s in there. blue in color.
The good news is that various hair coloring colors can be used to hide green hair. and without having to use bleach to remove the color.
According to the hair color wheel that all hair color research follows, warm, red-orange tones are the polar opposite of green-blue tones.
This means that these colors balance each other out and can help you get rid of any undesirable hair tones. With their cooling hues, blues and browns also wipe out green.
The colors you should strive to cover your green hair with are:
- Midnight blue, pastel tints, and electric blue are all examples of blue.
- Burgundy, lavender, and maroon are all purple colors.
- Orange is a combination of ginger and copper.
- Brown such as ash, chocolate, and mahogany.
How effectively it will work depends on the color of green your hair currently is, the type of hair dye you used, and how long the color has been in your hair.
Always do a strand test before dying your hair entirely to ensure that the color is correct.
ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT DYEING YOUR GREEN HAIR PURPLE?
Then, because your aims will affect the outcome, it’s critical to be clear about why you want to achieve this.
I can tell you ahead of time:
• Dyeing your green hair purple with a fantasy purple dye will result in purple hair.
• If you want to dye specific green tones in your ash-colored hair, use purple toner instead of purple dye because you will only neutralize the greens and your hair will not be purple.
Of course, this is the big picture, because there is an explanation for each of these claims.
And you’ll need to know the difference if you want to get the appearance you want with purple hair color.
Perhaps I should begin by asking you why your hair is green in order to better appreciate these two very distinct situations.
Did you use a fantasy green hair color and it turned green? or do you have some ashy-green areas that have emerged after a long period of death?
Because it is from there that the distinction, the solution, and the outcomes emerge.
So, remain tuned so you don’t make any mistakes, because I’ll tell you:
• How to use purple dye to turn your green hair purple.
•How to use purple to tone down the green in your hair
HOW DO YOU APPLY DYE TO GREEN HAIR TO MAKE IT PURPLE?
As we discussed at the outset, if you apply purple dye to your green hair, it will turn purple. This is especially true when discussing fantasy color dyes.
When hairdressers talk about dream color dyes, what exactly do they mean?
All colors that aren’t in the standard color palette. Green, electric blue, fuchsia, or purple are examples of such colors.
Have you ever seen all those Instagram hairdos with hues that remind you of mermaids or unicorns?
Those hues were achieved by using a fantasy dye. They don’t contain peroxide and only sit on the outside of the cuticle, so they fade away over time when you wash your hair.
The fantasy hue you chose lasts for around two to four washes after you apply it.
If you ask me what the greatest fantasy shades are, I’ll tell you two things: there’s a large choice of pastel and colorful hues to choose from, and none of them will harm your hair.
Because the color fades with each wash, you won’t have to bleach it out like you would with other types of dyes.
BUT WHAT IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE COLOR SCHEME?
You don’t need to make any preparations; all you have to do is apply the new tone and you’re good to go.
Because you won’t have any issues if you use the fantasy dye as a base and then add a new color that is also a fantasy dye.
While I’m writing this, I’m reminded of Clara, a Wrinky client who came in about two months ago to get her hair dyed green. Naturally, I chose a fantastical dye.
I was shocked when she came to the salon twenty days later and asked if I could bleach her hair.
I inquired as to why she desired to bleach it, and she stated that she now desired purple hair.
At this point, I told her that bleaching her hair isn’t necessary. All she needs to do is add purple dye to her hair.
We used her personalized purple dye to hide her green hair, and the outcome was fantastic.
Her green hair was gone, replaced by a deep purple that matched her large green eyes.
DO YOU WISH TO USE PURPLE TO CONCEAL YOUR GREEN FANTASY DYE?
Don’t be afraid to try it because the purple tone will fully conceal the green color!
You only need to buy and apply the purple fantasy dye, but I recommend waiting until the base tone, in this case, the green, has settled so that the purple looks much nicer.
If you don’t want to go to the salon to change your green hue, buy the same kind of dye because you’ll already know how to apply it and how long it takes to work.
The purple shade will cover any green tone you have as a base, whether light or dark.
Finally, remember that starting with the long section of your hair and working your way down to the new growth is the best method to ensure that your hair absorbs the pigment evenly.
Let’s look at the other option now that we’ve established that dying your green hair purple with a purple fantasy color would result in purple hair.
DO YOU COLOR YOUR HAIR WITH GRAY TONES?
If this is the case, you’ll find that if you use the same tone over and over, it will become saturated, and you’ll end up with greenish colors.
A purple toner can be used to mildly tone your hair to neutralize the greens. In this situation, though, your hair will not turn purple.

HOW TO USE PURPLE TONER TO DYE YOUR GREEN HAIR
I’ll begin by illustrating this strategy with an example from one of my clients.
Mary is 62 years old and has been coming to Wrinky’s salon for a long time to get her long hair dyed an ultra-ashy blonde color.
You must refresh your color every three weeks if you have gray hair.
As time went on, portions of her hair turned green, and she went to the salon one day, desperate because her hair had become green. That frightened her.
Of course, anyone in her situation would be terrified if they didn’t want to have green hair.
I told her not to give up, that this was a logical problem because the color had been saturated and had begun to look greenish after applying the ultra-ashy blonde.
After that, I suggested that we use a purple toner on her hair. She stared at me as if I was from another planet, and she suggested that we take a one-way trip to the stars.
Of course, she anticipated that her hair would become purple. But she calmed down when I informed her that the toner would just neutralize the green, leaving her hair as golden as it had always been.
Even so, I could see she was frightened as I applied the purple toner to her hair, but after I washed it out, her smile returned. She was also relieved since the green had vanished.
Yes, the purple was missing as well.
If you’re like Mary, you can repair green tones with a purple toner.
However, if you wish to use purple toner to dye your hair, you must be very careful since your color may become too ashy green and your hair may turn purple.
Toner is a pigment that is used to cover up unfavorable hues such as green or orange. It can also be used to remove these unwanted tones after dying or bleaching.
You now know what happens if you tint your green hair purple.
Your hair will turn purple if you use purple fantasy color to cover your green hair.
Use a purple toner if you want to get rid of the greens after applying an ashy tone and your hair won’t turn purple because the green will be neutralized by it.
So, which of these scenarios most closely resembles your own? What makes you want to color your green hair purple?
