Best Hair Dye To Cover Orange
If you have orange hair, the answer is yes! Brown hair dye will cover your orange.
But before you run out and buy any old brown hair dye, let’s look at the different types of browns available and why they are different.
Natural Brown Hair Dyes
Natural brown dyes are often best for covering up orange hair because they contain natural ingredients like henna or indigo which help to counteract the brassy tones in orange hair. You may also find that these types of dyes work better on bleached hair, as they don’t contain ammonia.

Semi-Permanent Hair Dyes
Semi-permanent dyes are great for covering up your orange because they last longer than permanent ones and give you more time to decide if you like how it looks before committing to a permanent colour change. They also contain less ammonia than permanent dyes so can be used on bleached or damaged hair without damaging it further. The downside to semi-permanent dyes is that they tend not to cover greys as well as permanent colours do so if you’d
Dark Brown Hair Color
Dark brown hair color is a rich, dark shade of brown that can either be natural or dyed. Dark brown hair has been a popular color for years and is still growing in popularity. It is a good option for women who want to have a low maintenance hairstyle, but still have an eye-catching look that can be easily changed.
A dark brown hair color can be achieved by using permanent dye or semi-permanent dye. Permanent dye gives you the most vibrant results, as it penetrates deep into the hair shaft and binds with the keratin protein in your hair.
Semi-permanent dye leaves less of an impact on your hair because it washes out more quickly than permanent dye does. However, semi-permanent dyes are often used by women who want to try out different shades of brown before deciding on one they like best.
If you want to go darker with your current color, there are many shades of brown available in both permanent and semipermanent dyes. Some brands even offer more than one shade of dark brown so that you can choose the one that best matches your skin tone and style preferences.
Chestnut Brown Hair Color
Chestnut brown is a beautiful color that works well on many skin tones. It’s a warm brown with golden undertones, so it can look good on most people. If you have light skin, you may want to go for a darker chestnut brown, such as dark mahogany or chocolate brown. If your skin is darker than medium-dark, then you can choose any shade of chestnut brown without worrying about it looking unnatural or washed out.
Chestnut Brown Hair Color Ideas
There are many different shades of chestnut brown hair color. Some are lighter and some are darker than others. The darkest ones tend to be more dramatic, while the lighter ones are more subtle (and perfect if you want an easy-going look). Some of the best shades include:
Auburn Hair Color
Auburn hair colors are the most popular hair colors for women. It’s an attractive, warm and rich color that can bring out your inner beauty. The color is very versatile and goes well with any skin tone.
If you want to dye your brown hair auburn, here are some tips to help you get the desired results:
Go for highlights first
Auburn can come in many shades, which means that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. If you want an orange look like Kelly Osbourne or Rihanna, then go for a copper red shade. However, if you want a more natural looking color that blends well with your skin tone, try going for a dark brown shade with red undertones instead.
To achieve this look, go for highlights instead of dyeing all of your hair at once. You can use foils or lowlights to achieve this effect. If you’re not sure how to do this yourself, consider visiting your local salon and ask them to create the look for you.
A brown hair dye will fix orange hair
Orange hair is a problem that many people have. It can be caused by a variety of issues, including sun damage, water damage, and even a bad dye job. But no matter what the cause of your orange hair is, it can be fixed.
If your hair is naturally orange, there are several things you can do to darken it up and make it look more natural again.
There are a few different ways to go about fixing your orange hair. You can use a toner to get rid of any remaining red tones in your hair, or you can use a brown dye to cover up the orange shade altogether.
Toning Your Hair
If your hair is naturally red-orange or yellow-orange, then using a toner will help significantly. A toner specifically targets those bright colors and removes them from your hair so that it looks more natural again.
You’ll want to use a clarifying shampoo before applying the toner to remove any buildup from styling products or conditioners that might hinder its effectiveness on your hair’s color. Then simply apply the toner according to its instructions (usually by mixing it with water in a spray bottle) and allow it to sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes before rinsing it
Patience is needed
Yes, you can dye your hair brown over orange. Patience is needed, though, because it may take several applications of a brown dye to cover the orange.
The best way to go about it is to use a semi-permanent or permanent color that is the same shade as your natural hair color. This way, if you don’t get all the orange out, your hair will still be close to its original color rather than being too light.
Apply the dye to your hair and leave it on for half an hour. Wash off with cold water and shampoo twice. You should see some improvement in your highlights after this first application, but if they’re still visible or not as dark as you’d like them to be, repeat again with another application of semi-permanent or permanent color until they are completely covered.
