Trendy Pastel Purple Hair Color Ideas

Pastel hair is all the rage right now and pastel purple hair is no exception. There are so many fun and fabulous shades of pastel purple to choose from so you definitely find one that calls out to you!

Like any hair color, pastel purple hair will require some maintenance. Following is some advice on how to care for pastel purple hair. And then we will show you some of our favorite looks for pastel purple.

As with any pastel color, you will need to bleach your hair first. We suggest going to a salon to bleach your hair, as doing it incorrectly could yield disastrous results. Plus your stylist will know what shade of bleach is needed for your natural hair color. As well, they will be able to properly monitor the timing. Overbearing your hair could seriously damage your hair, but if you don’t bleach it enough, you won’t end up with the color you desire.

Keep in mind that pastel colors fade rather quickly. This is especially true with pinks and purples so if you like your look, it may require some upkeep. Before you dye your hair, you should do a hair mask to nourish your hair. As well, you should wash your hair several days before you bleach it and take care to not use any hair products until you bleach your hair. You can use coconut oil as a leave-in hair conditioner. In fact, you should do a deep conditioning with coconut oil the day before you bleach your hair to help prevent damage.

After you have bleached your hair, you are now ready for your pastel purple hair. You might not want to bleach and color your hair on the same day. If you can schedule two separate appointments, it is actually healthier for you to not color your hair on the same day you bleach it. If you are coloring at home, wait at least a day to color your hair after you bleach it.

If you are coloring your hair at home, add some semi-permanent pastel purple color to your conditioner. This will help refresh your color and keep it from fading. Also, only use sulfate-free shampoos to preserve the dye. Only wash your hair once or twice a week and never use hot water as it will strip your hair color. Use a dry shampoo that is for color-treated hair between washings as well as a leave-in conditioner. Coconut oil is always a good choice.

Do not overheat your hair with excessive blow-drying and curling and/or flat iron if you can avoid it. And only use products that are free of alcohol and sulfates to help your color last longer. Wear a swim cap if you are going swimming as chlorine will wreak havoc with your pastel purple hair.

When looking for a hair dye for any hair coloring you should consider using an ammonia free hair dye, as ammonia-based dyes force the hair follicles to open so that the hair will absorb the dye, which will weaken the hair this causes permanent damage.

If you keep these tips in mind, you should have no trouble keeping your pastel purple hair looking happy and healthy. Like all lighter hair colors, it will fade over time, so be prepared to color it again once it starts to fade. However, you can also try a different shade of pastel purple if you want to mix it up. The sky’s the limit when it comes to cool shades of pastel purple!
