    For the 3 Violet Shades Specifically: It is imperative that these shades be used alone. They must not be used in combination with other shades.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite but it does fade quickly I love this product & will continue to purchase. Color last for about 2 months then the color starts to fade to a light brown/auburn red color. I use 2 boxes an some developer & I have medium length hair and medium thickness. In the office my hair look black with a slight purple/red tint to it and in the sunlight the color shines and looks very beautiful. I highly recommend this product, it is my favorite. I didn't give this product 5 stars because the color does fade awfully quick & I use color protectors and wash my hair every other day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!! I colored my hair, excited about the new shade for my virgin african american hair. I also used a 30 lift. The color did not take at all! I co-washed it out until the water ran clear. I then put my curling product into my hair and the color started to run terribly like I hadn't washed anything out. So I repeated the wash out process. A week later, the color is still running terribly, even from just the mist moistening my hair from the shower!! What if I got caught in the rain?! And there is still no color to be seen in my hair. I WILL NEVER EVER USE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN. It was such a waste of my time, energy and money! I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible This stuff is so misleading. Bought it for my 11yr old and I to add a touch of purple to our hair. We told the lady at sallys we wanted purple for our brown hair, so she picked this out since it's for brown hair. It says Red violet and the color picture is a purple color, but there is no violet to it at all. It's an orangish red, almost a rust color which is horrible mixed with my brown hair. I hate it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasts longer I’ve come to the conclusion that if I truly want purple hair I will have to bleach. I have been using the darkest violet and I do like the color for about a month- it seems to last longer than anything else I have used. Unfortunately my hair pulls red like crazy. I like that this dye -isn’t messy and all you have to do is mix it with developer. Quick and easy

I have black hair, and I was wondering what is a good blue dye to use; without bleach. I’ve dyed my hair with a nutrisse blue dye, and it only made my hair more black. I’m looking for a vibrant blue tint

Asked by: hellicuh
For that these colors don't work like that. I have dyed really dark Auburn hair and the violets only made my hair black, no purple hue. What I do for that strong deep hue I wait about 3 days to a week after dying my hair with a really good hair dye like Swartschoff (ican't spell it but it's the best and leaves my hair the healthiest. Then I use semi permanent Manic Panic.... choose a shade you want, don't bleach hair. Make sure you get 40, not 20, (you may have to go online, mp site for the 40) it's more vibrant, deeper color, and lasts way longer. They have the best colors. Don't choose a light blue, go with dark raven or navy type blue. It's vegetable dye! Follow instructions and yes it bleeds for days not bad though. The best color and least damage to your hair. Use treatment after to keep your hair soft. It's worth the extra to buy the larger bottle of that. The girls at the counter know which one, they have it up front single use for $0.99 on counter.

I just want to know if the dyes Black Onyx and Black Sapphire are truly black in color (when not in the sun) because I want a truly black hair color. I previously purchased a "permanent" drugstore black hair dye and it washed out.

Asked by: Kissa988
black onyx is 100% black, the black sapphire has a blue tint in the sun especially

I am planning on dying my hair H19 true violet for the first time i was wondering could i dye my hair again a lighter shade on top of it after a month has past oh btw my hair is a dark brown almost a black.

Asked by: Seratygra86
You can, but it depends on how much lighter you want might have to lighten your hair prior to using the product. The one you're using will deposit the purple shade on top of your dark hair.

Is the Black Sapphire supposed to be Blue Black or just a Black black?

Asked by: atttt623
I have dark black hair and I've used the Sapphire Black with a 30 developer that is recommended only to lift and achieve the color. I'm now gonna try the Black Plum with a 20 developer just to tame the lift down a notch..

I have dark brown/reddish hair. I’ve been using the darkest violet but after about 3-4 weeks my hair is red. Should I mix some blue with the violet?

Asked by: Sheena1128
I favor #119.  I make a mix of 2 packets Gray busters, an ounce or so of loreal medium brown (15% of mixture), a whole tube of 119, a really big sqirt of demi clear shiny by Ion, Clairol #10 Soy-50% and Clarol #20-50%.  It makes it a 15%mix of developer. I shake this concoction really hard.  I apply to roots and hairline first and then the rest of head  I feel like an alchemist, but the color stays true/vivid for 4-5 weeks.  It grows out w/o fading. It looks rich. Am 67 years, I’ve been purple almost a year  and get all compliments.  Am a natural brunette with a lot of gray and a few white patches

I have 2 tube of the hicolor and 30 developer but how much developer i have to put for 2 tubes ??

Asked by: Ok__1994
Its 2.5 oz of developer per tube of hair color. So if you use both tubes, it's 5oz of developer.

The directions say “Rinse with warm water until water runs clear and then shampoo“ I thought you only condition after you rinse out the dye, and shampoo only after a few days.  We have to shampoo directly after rinsing the hair dye? 

Asked by: Princesspumpkin
Everytime I dye my hair I shampoo it then condition. Then wait a few days and go back to normal shampoo and conditioner routine.
