I recently got my hair dyed in a violet/aubergine color (it’s really hard to photograph it though). I got it done in a salon so it was very pricey. It was totally worth it but I’ve been searching for cheaper alternatives in the drugstores. I put a little list together for all of you daredevils who want to dye their hair purple at home..

I actually went to the drugstores to check out what they’ve got to offer and it’s not a lot, but here’s what I’ve found:

-Syoss Dark Cherry.
-L’oréal Casting Creme Gloss Cherry Black.
-Schwarzkopf Vital Colors 89 Aubergine.
-Garnier Olia 3.16.
-Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color 3.16 Aubergine.
-Garnier Nutrisse Deep Purple 426.

I don’t know what brand/color the salon used on me, I should’ve asked. I’m going to see how well this color lasts on me and then I’ll probably try to do it myself. I’ll definitely let you know when I’ve made my decision.

Fyi: I don’t know if these are any good; I’ve never tried them. This post is just to put all the ‘aubergine’ colored permanent hair colors available in the drugstores together, to make it easier for you.

If you know more colors similar to these then definitely let me know in the comments.
