I'm looking for a bit of advice on putting a blue tint into my black hair, (like snape in harry potter) but I'm not sure what I need, how long it last etc. I work in a supermarket, else I'd just bleach it all out and dye it blue all over... Anybody recommend a product or something avialable in the UK?
(and hair is very crafty so no telling me it isnt you oiks!)

Why not just dye blue over it? Nothing is gonna be permanent. Dye sticks to hair that's bleached, sadly. I had blue hair for two years Smiley

In the Us, we have products that are in blue black.

Look around for that, but if not, just dye blue over the black. It won't be too noticable but in the right light, it will be Smiley

Hey guys,
Sorry about all the old broken picture posts. I no longer have the files!

I would just overdye it, but my hair is currently quite a light black, and if it went blue I would get a disciplinary at work... I'll have a look around for a suitable dye, but I'm not too confident about jumping straight into it without some idea of how it's going to turn out.  Embarrassed

Try a rinse - you know, those ones that wash out after 8 washes (allegedly). Just be careful with the colours - I'm using the Schwarzkopf Diva ones, and I had to use the blue one to make my hair purple because the violet one is actually red.

They go on pretty well, and my hair is dyed black, so it'll probably work even better with your natural black.  Smiley

L'oreal makes a blue-black hairdye.  It really does give a noticable tint.   Using blue MAnic Panic would probably also work (as long as your hair is naturally black rather than died black).

Thanks for the advice ppl. I live in quite a small town so its hard to get most of the products available without going for net or mail order stuff. I went into boots and they had the L'Oreal Feria 3D one. I was thinking about using semi-permenant stuff, but I'm far too lazy to constantly be recolouring it, and my hair is shortish so it wont take too long to grow back anyway. Will let you know how much of a mess I make of it...
