Top Purple Hair Dyes

Organic Coloursystems No Limits Violet

Solid through salons, this is the at-home version of the professional line. Organic Colour Systems' selling point is that it uses fewer chemicals and no ammonia, reducing hair damage.

Sparks Purple Passion

Manic Panic

This New York city-based cosmetics brand has been selling fantasy hair colors since 1977. It currently boasts nine different hair color variations of purple. The brand has two semi-permanent lines: Classic, which can last four to six weeks, and Amplified, created to last 30-percent longer — and they do not contain bleach, ammonia, peroxide, parabens or PPD, and are vegan and cruelty-free. Manic Panic also offers huan-hair and synthetic-hair extensions in purple shades
