Purple and Green Hair

I finally told myself it was time to try green hair! I've done turquoise before, but have been a little nervous to do green. I didn't want it to look like pool water. I am very happy with how it turned out! Here's some info on the process I used to achieve this look.


First I put the bleach on my roots that had grown out. Then with the extra bleach I had I started at the very bottom of my hair and worked it up a little with my hands.

The tips bleached out very quickly so I rinsed the bottom out with cold water then let my roots sit a few more minutes. After they were done I washed all my of hair and dried it. 

Then I used RAW's Deep Purple and mixed it with a little conditioner to lighten it and applied that to my roots. I kind of feathered it down the hair so there wouldn't be a harsh line. I did the same with the bottom (just worked my way up instead) and used Special Effects Iguana Green.


Here's a shot of it in the sunlight! I love how the green tone looks! I am kind wanting to go all over green now. Hehe. I do think these color combinations will look better when I curl my hair. So I'm going to try that next.

A few of my friends said it reminds them of Spike from My Little Pony! Yay!

  1. The color looks amazing! Been thinking of doing a dark green after my red hair and the dye you used looks perfect, although bleaching all of my hair is a bit scary!

  3. I love the green and purple together. I am way too chicken to dye my hair crazy colours, but I love it on other people!

  4. I love it! I've had green hair and I've had purple hair to. But I've never combined the both of them.
    It looks great! (Which means I need to try it!)

  11. That colour really suits you. Your hair looks great! I've been wanting to get blue highlights in my hair for a while now, but since I'm job hunting, I'm not sure I can...
