What color can I dye my hair after blue? I’m in doubt!

The best colors to dye your hair after blue are:


permanent hair color

If you’re tired of blue hair or just want a change, you have two options.

You can stick with fantasy colors or go back to traditional ones.

That would be the first decision you should make.


  • If you decide to continue with fantasy colors, you could choose violet, green, or turquoise.
  • It’ll always be better if you wait for the blue hair dye pigments to fade before applying the new color.
  • But if you don’t want to wait for the blue to fade, I’ll give you some options. They work even if there are still traces of blue left.


  • If, on the other hand, you’re thinking of going back to more classic hair colors, you can opt for auburn, light brown, or dark coppery blonde.
  • You won’t need to wait for the blue hair dye to fade because you’ll use a permanent hair dye.

Oh, the fantasy colors, what a passion they have unleashed!

It’s as much passion as Maluma unleashes every time he sings one of his popular songs.


If you want to be happy with your new hair color after having blue for a long time, you should consider some things.

For example,  is the blue color completely gone or are there still traces? 


  • If there’s still a lot of blue or if the blue is new, you should go for permanent hair dyes. The best colors are chestnut, light brown, and dark copper blonde. Why are they the best option?

Permanent hair dyes are applied with peroxide and ammonia. They lift the hair cuticles to deposit the new pigments inside the hair fiber to cover the blue.


  • If the blue is faded and you want to change color, you should go for a semi-permanent hair dye. It won’t damage your hair fiber.

However, be careful! You can’t just choose any fantasy hair color. You should choose darker colors such as green, violet, and turquoise.

Do you still have doubts?

3 fantasy colors to dye your hair after blue

temporary hair color

If you want to keep wearing an original and avant-garde look, fantasy colors are your best option.

They’re also ideal if you like to change your hair color very often to surprise your friends.


However, in this case, as we are starting from blue hair, you won’t be able to choose lighter shades such as yellow, pastel pink, light green, or lilac.

You can only choose darker colors after having worn blue. If you want lighter colors, you’ll have to bleach your hair, which requires another process.


Also, I recommend that you fade the blue before changing colors. That way, you’ll hair will look even. The base color should be considered before applying semi-permanent hair color.

Do you remember when you colored your hair blue?


You probably bleached it. The lighter the base color, the better the pigments of the semi-permanent hair dyes take.

So, if you want to cover your blue hair, even if the hair dye is faded, I recommend the darkest versions of violet, green, and turquoise.


Violet, purple, or magenta: for hair where the blue is still very persistent


Violet looks good on all skin and hair types.

 As it has blue and red, it’ll perfectly cover the blue of your hair 

There are many options within the violet range: violet, purple, magenta, etc.


You can choose a dark violet, such as Splat Midnight Amethyst or Keracolor Clenditioner Purple. If you want to innovate with an intense violet, try Got2B’s Perky Purple.


Green: if you’re looking for a color that isn’t so dark

semi permanent

Green also contains blue. So, it’s an excellent base, especially if the blue isn’t faded.


You can choose a medium green shade, such as L’Oreal Colorista green or Spring Green from Punky Colour. Also, a darker green such as Pravana ChromaSilk.


Turquoise or aquamarine: if you are looking for pastel shades

It’s one of my favorite fantasy colors, and I’ve used it for a long time. However, beyond my preferences, it’s a good option to cover the blue, even if it isn’t completely faded.


You can choose a medium to dark turquoise like Tropical Turquoise from Color X-Change or Aquamarine from Adore.

 Remember that lighter turquoises are forbidden.  Pastel shades need a very light base color, for which you’ll need to bleach your hair. 


What happens if you apply orange, for example? The results are uncertain. You should never lose sight of the fact that you already have blue as the base color in your hair.


What traditional colors to apply to blue-colored hair

Did you color your hair blue and regret it? Did you get tired of blue after months and want a makeover?


You can choose to use a permanent hair dye in both cases, even if the blue is not faded. As it’s applied with ammonia and developer, it’ll cover the blue.

Therefore, you don’t need to fade the blue to achieve an even and sophisticated traditional color.

Now, while color is important, don’t lose sight of hair health.


If   you bleached your hair to color it blue, I recommend that you moisturize your hair before applying a permanent hair dye. That way, you’ll strengthen it to resist the action of the chemicals. 


Also, you must be 100% sure of your new color. If you use a permanent hair dye and you don’t like the color, you’ll have to bleach your hair again. It’s an aggressive chemical process for the hair.

The traditional colors you can choose are brown 4, light brown 5, or dark copper blonde 6.4.


Brown 4, if you applied a dark blue semi-permanent hair color

loreal excellence creme

It also adapts to all skin types and never goes out of style. Did you know that 56% of the female population is brunette?


 This color will cover the blue in your hair even if it hasn’t faded or if you applied it not long ago. 

The big brands like L’Oreal, Revlon, and Garnier offer resistant and top-quality pigment hair dyes.


Light brown 5, if your hair is colored medium blue

orange undertones cancel out traces of blue

It can also work if you had dark blue hair with the pigments already faded.


Permanent light brown 5 will give you orange pigmentation. It’s beneficial for your color because orange cancels out the blue. What does it mean?


It means that the blue will disappear completely by applying an orange shade.

If you want a recommendation, I’d go with Garnier. It always includes a slight coppery pigmentation in its hair dyes.

Also, the light brown 5 will bring light to your face. You can use it as a base if you want to apply lighter colors to your hair in the future.


Dark copper blonde 6.4, if you’re looking for maximum gray coverage in addition to a hair color change


In addition to helping conceal gray hair, this shade can be applied regardless of the intensity of your blue base color. Orange is the opposite color of blue on the color wheel.

It means that there’ll be no trace of blue when you apply this dark copper blonde 6.4.


As it’s a blonde color, you can only use it if your blue was light or if it’s already faded.

Which brands offer this special shade?


Here they are along with the name and hair dye number.

  • Schwarzkopf Desert Cooper 6.44
  • L’Oreal Paris Feria Copper Crave C74
  • Garnier Olia Intensse Fire Ruby 7.45



The best colors to dye your hair after blue are dark green, dark violet, dark turquoise, chestnut, light brown, and dark copper blonde.

To choose the one you want, pay attention to how faded your blue is. Also, consider your hair health and whether you want a permanent or a semi-permanent change.
