Does anyone use the vibrant reds? Good? Not good? I need a change.

Not Schwartkopf, but I just used L'oreal shade 6.66 (Santiago? can't remember!). It's quite red on the pack, but was a fair bit darker than I expected, but I was med-light blonde before.
As I did it myself, and didn't expect it to be so dark, I wasn't very thorough and ended up re-doing it a week later to cover the bits I missed!
I hated it at first (looked purple!) but after re-doing it, I really like it. I've never gone this dark before - and it's really not that dark, I would say it's light brown with a definite red shade, but as I've always been blonde it seemed really dark at first. I would be happy to try a 'redder' shade, although I really like this one.

Thanks. I'm a mediumish brown (dyed) right now. I want a pretty vibrant change not just subtle. This lady wrote a blog review and this is the colour I would love to have http://www.fishtankfashion.com/2011/01/dye...tricks.html?m=1 (her pics about halfway down)

I just wonder about reviews if they're legit or not.

Also, if I did a strand test, obviously you have to wait the time for the colour to colour the strand and the already mixed colour would have to sit there and wait. It'd still be ok to use, right?

I've used them in the past, and like them.

I've only used over natural hair and got really vibrant results initially, but red is high maintenance and it does fade out and not look as bright.

I use the luminance brilliance one, the one with the half brown half red hair pic, I LOVE it!

It is a huge change for my hair, my hair is a darkish brown to start with.

My bigger issue is deciding between the red and the purple each time lol

I used a John Frieda colour that was quite a vibrant red. I liked it & got a few comments. People either loved or hated it.  rolleyes.gif

It has faded a fair bit, I did it Christmas eve & you can't see it at all now. You can't even see outs even thought was a permanent colour.  shrug.gif It doesn't bother me though as I want to wait a few weeks to get it done anyway. Then while we're away for our holiday I won't need to worry about it.

I would use it again & may try an even redder red this time.

What was your colour before it? My only hesitation is that the packet says it has a lighter in it too and I get scared of home lightening jobs. Did yours lighten your hair at the same time?

I'm a medium brown. It didn't lighten at all though for me. Depends on your starting colour.

If you go to Hairhouse Warehouse or somewhere similar they'll give you some advice. I found it helpful, I used only get my hair colored at the salon but can't afford that now. I was sticking with boring browns until his last time. Without advice though I wouldn't  have tried it.

Wow, I just googled and that is really red! Did you look at the link I put up earlier? All the google images I searched for for manic panic showed people who had obviously bleached first. I want the exact colour of my earlier link. In your experience, what colour would get me that?

I used to use them on my blonde hair.


This is the Chilli Chocolate, which is what I assume a regular red would look like on medium brown?



This is what regular red looks like on me!

Ooooh, I used to use red passion! I LOVED LOVED LOVED it. I am considering going back to it. I never had any problems with it :-) my hair was dark brown to start with :-)

Oh wow soprano (did you have another name on here? you look familiar). That is RED! I am so confused now. That really suits you but I don't think I could pull off the second sort.

MrsDS, pics?

Will work well over mousy brown natural hair. Will do next to nothing on artificial colour.
Tint cannot lighten tint or add vibrancy. On dark or artificially coloured hair you would have to bleach it first then apply. I do not reccomend doing this at home.
My advice is if you want to avoid having it done in the salon go to Hair house warehouse or similar and ask for their advice and buy professional products to do it yourself. Good luck original.gif

I am pretty sure I would of used them in the past. I always use to go reds, then I changed to chocolate brown,now I put in a dark blonde as the greys are too thick and fast to keep up with otherwise.

I was bad and never did strand tests, just used the lot. I have thick hair and need two packets. Beware the bathroom can look like a massacre scene after lol

ok that's basically the colour I want. Red passion was what I was looking at too. It is the XXL range, yes?

#23 MrsDamonSalvatore

Posted 09 February 2013 - 08:29 PM

XXL? It's been over 12 months since I have had my hair that colour :-(

I was lillijen, then napcat.

Remember, I'm a blonde which is why the red passion colours come out so bright.  I put the first pic up because it's a Schwarzkopf "brown red" which is what I imagine bright red over brown hair would look like.

ok, kinks worked out. That is me. What do you think for a colour?

Soprano, lillijen is the name I was thinking, thanks original.gif
