Is it teething time for your little one?
Colouring your hair black can be a bold move. It is on a par to going platinum blonde or a bright red. If going black is a look you are considering, it’s important to keep a few things in mind such as deciding if black is the right shade for you and how you will treat it once the colour is in your hair.
Although anyone can go darker, we recommend not going any more than two shades darker or lighter than your natural hair colour. It is wise to consult your hairdresser so they can tailor a shade that’s right for your skin tone. If you are pale, dying your hair black may make you look a bit washed out. Those with olive skin should ask their hairdresser to add warmth to their hue so that it doesn’t look one dimensional. Black hair is often better suited for those with medium to dark skin tones. For those of you with warm and yellow skin tones, dark brown hair and brown or hazel eyes, dying your hair black will probably suit you. 
Don’t do it yourself!

If you’re serious about dying your hair black and you’ve never had black hair before, we recommend avoiding using a home colour kit. There are a lot of things that can go wrong with using a home colour kit for dying your hair black, such as leaving the colour in for too long or not applying it correctly. It is always best to have your hair done by a hair stylist who has experience with colour. The stylist will be able to advise you on what shade of black will best compliment your skin tone.

Colouring your hair black hair can be a great option if you are looking for a new, bold and dramatic look. Going to a professional hair dresser to get the colour done and then following it up using shampoo specifically for colour treated hair is the way to do it. Finding a shade of black that looks great with your skin tone can result in a beautiful, healthy new look.
