@nerdybird:  Honestly, if I were you, I’d go into a salon. It may cost more to have it done, but that was its done 100% right. They will have “violet intensifiers” that they can add to any color. If you’re looking for something that specific, I wouldn’t try to do it myself. Purchasing any hair color from a department store isn’t guaranteed on color- not to mention if you want to change it it’ll be so hard to get the color out!

 

Do you have any friends that are licensed beauticians? They would be able to go to the beauty supply store and get professional color for you.

@nerdybird:  I do the same. I got sick of paying so much money for my hair to NEVER turn out the color I wanted it to turn out. I started dying my hair by myself with Goldwell Topchic products last year and I’ve never been happier with the color. You could try to put a small amount of violet into your color mix. Just be careful, I suppose. It’s tricky doing your own hair sometimes! I know Goldwell sells a new line of brunette colors which are blue and violet based. They may be in a darker level than you are looking for, though. They also sell a violet mix. You could try asking on one of those hair stylist websites from google??? 🙂

@nerdybird:  They have 10, 20, and 30 volume developer lotions. 30 is only if you need to do a serious lift (blonde and such). 20 is what I use. It lifts 1-2 shades. Mix ratio 1 part color to 1 part lotion. 10 is if you are just adding color and is what is used in boxed hair colors. I never use 10 volume.

Some lady here dyed my hair super-dark-almost-black-ish-red. I used the 30 volume with a special ash blonde and lifted the color out. Now I just use a level 6 dark ash blonde and 20 volume lotion. It comes out perfectly every time. I bought a pack of gloves, the Goldwell mixing bowl and measuring beaker, and one of those paint brush looking things. I first did my whole head. Now I do only my roots when they come out. It’s all a systematic routine now. 🙂
