The answer is yes! Believe it or not black hair has a variety of different tones ranging from cool to warm. Some shades of black hair can vary depending on the under one of it. But what does that mean exactly? Have you ever noticed that black hair can look blue when it shines in the light? That’s because it has a cool undertone. This shade of black will usually have blue or violet undertones.
Some shades of black have brown undertones to it giving the shade more warmth. This shade will not be a super intense black, it will have warmth to it and not look as “harsh.” This is what’s referred to as “off black” or “brown black.” Some shades of black even have red undertones again, making it warm and not intense or super dark. There is a wide variety of shades to choose from when going dark, even with black hair!
As far as maintenance goes, regular root touch ups every 4 weeks are beneficial to maintain your outgrowth. If you are someone who likes cool toned hair and you notice your color looking dull and/or lacking shine, try using a blue shampoo. The blue pigment will cancel out any warmth and give it that blue tone you're looking for. It will reflect in the light giving your hair a natural looking shine. Also, regular deep conditioning treatments are very beneficial + will give your hair natural shine and softness. When your hair is healthy, your color will look more radiant.
