    HiColor is a Permanent hair color brand by L’Oreal Technique that is specifically formulated for dark bases of hair. All of the shades in the line provide multi-level lift on dark hair in one step with no brassiness. The shades are mixed in a 1:1.2 ratio with Oreor Crème Developer 30 volume (20 volume for relaxed hair). Processing time is 30 minutes at room temperature.

  • Wear suitable gloves. Measure 2.5 oz. of Oreor 30 volume developer into a plastic bottle or non-metallic mixing bowl. For relaxed hair, use 20 Volume developer only. Add entire contents of Excellence HiColor tube (1.74 oz.). Shake or mix until smooth and creamy. Use exclusively with the recommended oxidant, Oreor 30 volume (9%) maximum. Use only the proportions indicated.

     

    Application: Always apply haircolor to dry, unwashed hair immediately after mixing.

     

    Virgin Hair: Saturate the lengths and ends staying an inch away from the scalp, process for 20 minutes. Then apply to the root area and develop for 10 more minutes.

     

    Retouching: Apply to the regrowth, develop for 20 minutes. Then apply to lengths and ends and process for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water until water runs clear and then shampoo. Do not use with metal tools (clips, comb, etc.) Rinse hair well after processing time.

  • Wait at least 14 days after relaxing, perming or straightening before coloring.

     

    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 5 out of 5 by from Sapphire Black I always used this on my dark brown hair and it looked gorgeous in the sunlight. Recently I had bleached my hair and tried out some fun colors for the summer. Once summer was over I returned to this and my hair faded to a denim blue color over time. I get so many compliments on the color! I used to use another brand they discontinued and I am so glad this one exceeds my expectations! My hair is stubborn, thick, and doesn't damage easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t let the name deep violet fool you This product lasts long compared to store bought products. I was hoping for more of a purple color because of the name “violet” but it was more of a burgundy color, which I didn’t mind. I really like this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing The color was exactly what I wanted. Was easy to do and will buy this product again when it’s time for touch up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up like the best professional brands I bought the black plum color about six months ago when I went to Sallys because it looked interesting and I don't have a store near me. I am a swim instructor, and so I wash my hair 4-6 times a week and swim up to five days a week. I applied this color with 20 volume developer on virgin (just did a big chop) level 2/3 hair 3 weeks ago, and it is still BRIGHT in the sun, with an almost black hue indoors which is what it advertised. Like always, the blue tones are fading first, but it will make it until my next root touch up. This is my second favorite color line so far, my first favorite being the kenra permanent metallics, which you have to have a pro buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Hi lift colors! Literally saved my hair. Prior to finding these, I would bleach and then deposit! Now it’s quick and the color lasts a good amount of time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I purchased the Hicolor violet H18 and it turned out perfect, lasted a long time and truly love this product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just a whisper of violet Not really what I would call violet. More reddish brown with a hint of purple in the right light. I ended up mixing it with hicolor highlight in magenta and while I like the color, it's not as purple as I was hoping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I'm disappointed with this color! I've used the reds and pinks before and they were good! I mixed the red violet with this violet tone and 40vol and for some reason my friends hair turned out darker? Like very dark brown with a hint of violet. It was a pretty color, but still not near as vibrant as I was expecting since I've used the reds before. I was pretty upset that it claims to be high lift color and her hair ended up at least 2 shades darker! And this was done on natural hair -_-

I colored my hair this past weekend with the Ion brand the color was the plum not happy with the color . I want 2 try the loreal in the color black plum since my hair is dark with the plum color do i have to use a 30 volume developer?

Asked by: Beeee6823
I think 30 vol would be too high of a lift. I would suggest 10 or 20 vol.

Would it make a big difference if clear developer was used and not the creme.....I have always used the L'Oreal FERIA power violet color and loved it. I had wonderful commets every single time I was away from home and I am 73 years of age.

Asked by: soloxxab
good question! I've used both and the difference for me was the liquidity of the clear vs creme--so it's a little more difficult to mix the proper amounts of color with developer and then to apply a drippier color to the hair. The color itself comes out the same in my experience. :)

Can my hair go violet if i dyed it red before

Asked by: Csalazar627
Yes. It might not be the exact shade as pictured on the box but the violet tone is pretty vibrant.

Considering putting this over red hair to go darker but wondering I don't know the color shades. Confused which is the light purple

Asked by: Bellalea1
Honestly these don't really go purple over dark hair. I've used both purples on virgin dark hair and over dyed red, and all I got was a reddish brown color. Any purple tinge in the sunlight washed out immediately. So if you are desiring an actual purple over dark/red hair, you may be better off trying a different brand. The red ones work great, so I don't know why the purples ones are sub-par.

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
With black hair you will have to use the creme developer to get the color that you want. Hope this helps.

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 it...you 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..
