Raven, or deep black, hair can be enhanced and protected by using color enhancing shampoos and styling products. Natural dyes and similar hair treatments can also be used to intensify raven hair.
- Shampoo your hair
Wash your hair with a color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, even if it is not dyed. Another option is to use color-protecting shampoo, which helps to preserve and prolong the life of dyed hair. Black hair powders are also available to enhance the color of black hair.
- Style it
Use styling products designed to enhance the hair's color, such as a mousse that enriches hair color and provides extra volume.
- Glaze your hair
Professional or at-home hair glazes add shine and also enhance the color of hair, whether it is natural or dyed.
- Make a natural hair rinse
Natural products from the grocery store can be used to enhance the color of raven hair. Boil 1 pound of walnut husks in 2 cups of water, and strain the mixture. Let the solution sit on the hair for about 15 minutes before rinsing and shampooing the hair. Other natural products that enhance dark hair include black tea, rosemary and sage. These herbs can also be boiled and applied to the hair to bring out natural highlights and add shine.
