10 Best Black Hair Dyes For Women Guide 2019

There are so many black hair dyes  on the market today that choosing can indeed be a challenging proposition. Well, look no further. In this guide, we will look at some of those available options that you can make an informed decision to meet your needs. Let’s go!

What Is A Hair Dye

black hair dyes


In as simple words as I can, a hair dye is anything that you use to change the color of your hair. It can be a chemically produced product in any of these forms:

  • Powder
  • Mousse
  • Cream
  • Liquid

Or it can be made naturally as well.

When was the last time you changed your hair color? What did you use? A natural dye or a chemically enhanced one? Check out this article. Click To Tweet

Types Of Hair Dyes

Hair dyes can take many forms and of course the intensity of their performance as well. You will find dyes fit in any of these categories:

  • Permanent
  • Semi-Permanent

It all depends on your choice and your commitment to caring for the color you choose to wear. Both methods will warrant a lot of moisturizing care especially due to the ‘stress’ on the hair just to achieve the different look.

Natural hair dyes can also be permanent or semi-permanent.

Natural Alternatives

Thankfully, we can always depend on Mother Nature to offer a solution for so many things, hair care included. She does that using:

  • Henna
  • Indigo
  • Fruit and Vegetables

The hair color produced naturally will definitely be much gentler on the hair and in my opinion, something I would encourage others to do – if they want to dye their hair.

I use Henna and Indigo all the time since the last few years, and I love it. It makes my ‘dye job’ look so natural and not to mention how much more healthy my hair is because of it. I used chemical dye colors for a few years when my grays started to show up and then switched to the natural alternative and have not looked back since then.

The Benefits

Of course, using a hair dye – whether is a natural formula or a chemically enhanced formula, there are reasons for doing so. Some reasons will  be beneficial and maybe some will not be, of course, it depends on whose eyes you are looking through. Here are some benefits:

  • using a natural hair dye is gentler, and healthier for your hair if you choose to color your grays
  • using henna is also a natural hair strengthener for your hair and not only a colorant
  • coloring your grays also improve one’s self-acceptance or self-esteem – depending on one’s age and maturity
  • indirectly boosts one’s self-confidence as well

I am sure you can think of a few more personal reasons, however, these are the more common ones for some people.
