If you have this intention, this article would be your best advice for you before you do something make you regret after.

So what is the result if we put brown dye on purple hair?

Let use two crayons to make a small experience. To make a purple, we need to make a mixture of red and blue. And what about brown? It is made of red and green. What if we make a mixture of these brown and purple together? The result is not quite surprised because you would not see the clearly different new color, but this mixture would bring the shape of both brown and purple. Sound fascinating, right?

In reality, does this theory really happen? Actually when you the color is not crayons, it is from you hair, the result is affected by many factors. So when put brown dye on purple hair, if the result is not follow your expectation, the reason may come from one of these factors below.

Hydrogen peroxide

If you put brown to your purple dyed hair, you hair turns out a blonde or ssliver hair, Hydrogen peroxide is the main reason for that. Hydrogen peroxide is one of three main substances in brown clolorant- the most popular colorants in the world today.

So what Hydrogen peroxide do to you hair? It would weaken you hair and make it more fatigue. You hair is easier to be damage and the result turns out your hair become brighter than the theory.


It is said that Ammonia would damage the cuticle of the hair to take the dyed color in. As you may know, the cuticle is important to our hair in the same as the skin is important to our body. Once the cuticle is gone, you hair is very weak and damaged easily.

The problem is without Ammonia the color is so difficult to mix in fluently with your hair so we have to find the solution for that. Your purple hair after put brown would turn into a creamy yellow.


Colourants is the final factor affecting the result of putting brown in purple-dyed hair. Besides Hydrogen peroxide, it is the last part of three main substances in brown clolorant.

Too much colourants would make your hair damaged, but too little colourants would make your hair purple rather than brown. So you need to take it into consideration about colourants.
