Is it possible to naturally have purple hair?

Yes. Red-heads have a purple shine to the strands of their hair, and some people who have a natural mix of red and black hair often come across as having lavender tinted hair in the sunlight. The effect is not a full blown out purple like you would find in a crayola box, but it is more on par with Elizabeth Taylor's lavender eyes. Like her eyes, it would not seem lavender all the time, and set against the wrong color, it could diminish the effect completely.
