    My daughter has always wanted purple hair, so on her 13th b-day we gave her some purple streaks and I dyed my fringe purple. I was gonna dye a few dreads too, but I ran out of dye and I think I need to bleach them again to get them light enough.

    Think how much dye you would need!!!
    It would cost you a small fortune!

    I had to bleach my hair for the dye to take...maybe try that next time?

    it was bleached yeah, cause my hair is naturally really really dark brown, so whenever i did it red, it was bleached beforehand, and we did the same with the purple so i dont know why it didnt take.. i dont know if the hair follicles were still open from the bleach, so the purple just ran away as i rinsed the dye off.. no idea.

    The cooler colours are always poorer to take. I found when I dyed my hair blue, the parts of my hair which had been bleached many times but also had a little leftover pink on, took the dye very well and vividly. However, the portion of hair at the roots, which had just been newly bleached, took very little of the dye, and lost it quickly.

    Warmer colours have much more staying power. You could try either mixing a purple from a blue and a pink or a small quantity of red, or apply a little pink dye to your hair first, to see if the blue sticks to it better.
    I'm not entirely sure what the logic behind this may be; am just reporting from experience.
