Loreal Hicolor for Dark Hair: Magenta and Red

Loreal Hicolor in Magneta & Red

I noticed a good amount of visitors coming to my blog about this dye and also emailing me about whether this will actually work on black hair. The dye says for dark hair only and it means virgin hair! This dye requires a developer. It can't lift dye out of your hair. It won't work if you have any dye history even if it's faded. It cannot lift. It only lifts a little to be able to deposit color, not actual levels. You need to use a color stripper and possibly bleach before using this for bright results.

I used this over a faded (5-6 weeks) demi-permanent black dye. It gave a red tint. I would not recommend attempting to use this over dyed or faded hair because you will end up with very bright red roots.

It comes out bright without the use of bleach but results will be intense if hair is pre-lightened. I wouldn't leave it on longer than 40 minutes. I know some people have later redyed their hair again using Loreal but you could touch up with use of a veggie dye (Special Effects, Raw, Manic Panic, etc) *instead* and you won't damage your hair.

I do recommend that you use this dye for lifting your roots. I would use about 1-2 tubes every 2-3 months. Works amazing without having the drama of bleach!
