Special Effects Deep Purple Hair Dye
Honna sent these photos to us of her with Deep Purple hair - and since I'm a total sucker for women in camo looking awesome, I didn't decide on just one, I had to put them all up =)
'I redyed my hair Friday afternoon and those pics were taken Sunday
evening. I use Clairol Shimmer Lights blue shampoo to help keep it frosty
and I do not prebleach my hair, but I do have some grey streaks in my hair
that really soak up the purple. I used to get the same effect by
bleaching streaks into my hair first, but I don't even have to do that
now.' Her hair is naturally dark brown!
Deep Purple dyed over natural Ash Blonde hair.
"It's my first time using Deep Purple and I love it love it love it.
I've gotten so many compliments and its the first color I've used
that makes virtual strangers want to touch my hair."
"Hey, here are some pics of me with my Special Effects hair :) I used a
combination of Deep Purple, Pimpin Purple, and Burgandy Wine. I bleached a
bunch of streaks, then randomly applied dye to sections at a time. I mixed
the dyes together in random combinations for most of the sections, so I
don't know if the effect could actually be reproduced, but the three colors
mix well and I love the results. The purple matches the purple in my nose
" These pictures were taken after the second time I washed it. I used
two shades of purple: Pimpin' Purple and Deep Purple. I dyed my head in
18 sections, alternating colors as I went. I think it turned out rather
nice. The lighter purple isn't so magenta in real life (Pimpin' Purple)"
Pictured above is Cameo with her Deep Purple hair. She's a professional hairstylist and had the following to say about Deep Purple, and other Special Effects colors:
I bought Special Effects haircolor from your website and LOVE it! I'm a
hairstylist and have used every type of color. My hunt for the
perfect-bright-deep-long lasting purple has finally ended!!
I bleach my hair first (until it is gold/yellow,the color of my daughters)
after shampooing that (with no conditioner) pin up my hair and paint Atomic
pink to the bottom section, let down the section above my ears and paint
that section Blue Velvet , then the top section and my bangs goes my
beloved Deep purple!!
I sit under a hood dryer with a plastic bag on my head for 10-15 minutes,
cool for 5 minutes (to close the cuticle back up,) shampoo/cond. and then
scrub my tub!! :)
I re-apply one of the colors every 3 weeks. so, once a month either the
pink, blue or purple section gets re-brightened. I find that Deep Purple
fades (in about 6 shampoos) to Pimp'n Purple. Also, that Blue Velvet
fades in about 6 shampoos to Electric Blue. Atomic Pink fades to a very
pale pink in that time.
I only rebleach my roots every 3 months and the darker colors look just
Another great photo of Deep Purple hairdye =)

'(Deep Purple) My current color =D I have it on the tips of my atomic pink
bangs and that combination really helps bring it out more. I love the purple
and I didn't have to bleach the tips of my bangs, I just applied and it came
