Re: KK colour comparison chart

Thanks guys. Still having trouble getting this sorted out. I got some samples of Shapeshifter and kk from IKS, and it looks like the purple and dark purple from IKS are not dark enough, neither are the royal plum or purple haze for shapeshifter. The grape soda is *almost* right but I think it's still more of a pinky purple than my hair, reminds me a lot of afrocare's orchid. my hair is sfx deep purple with pravana vivids in violet layered over it, and despite being 3 weeks out from coloring is still very dark. So - is there *any* brand out there that makes a super dark purple that's almost black in some lights but definitely purple in sunlight, like orchid or grape soda, but more of a blue tone? or am i screwed and stuck with having to blend (which I am NOT good at btw, can never get it right) pic of my hair attached for reference.

Purple in most purpliest (:D) parts in that pic looks just like deep purple to me (it looks like LA Trend dp, but as said, jazzy is darker). You could use some deep purple just as is + deep purple/1B black blends. Combing the hair every now and then while blending helps the blending process.

Edit. Hey, Sensationnel seems to have 1B/Purple blend!

Maybe try doing a blend of black, grape soda, and a blueish purple color like violaceous? I don't know the number off the top of my head, but violaceous is the dark purple kk silky color that Kikko makes.

If you don't want to blend by hand, the Sensationnel blend Diversity Hair carries or Afrocare Orchid are probably the closest pre-made mixes you'll be able to find.

I just bought two packs of 99J from buyhair but it's called 99J red wine is it not mean't to be black wine? It also feels completely different from the other colours i bought from afro care

Hey thanks for the suggestions! Could you possibly post a pic of the 1b/purple and orchid side by side and/or the shapeshifter grape soda?

also was wondering if anyone had any feedback on x-pressions/buyhair's blackberry? it seems pretty dark on the swatch but hard to tell as I've not seen a real pic of it... i heard it seals horribly but I'd be using it for braids so that should be ok.

Jenna will probably be able to clarify but I believe that PC10 is called Indigo if brought from Buyhair

Jazzy Hot Purple (afrocare swatch):

LA Trend purple (second from the right):

I'm not 100% sure on PC08. It's either called purple or lilac from Buyhair

Thanks for that phoenix! The hot purple is exactly what i'm looking for but none of the other colours were quite what i was looking for. Ii'm trying to find a purple just like this purpleUV one http://www.neonblackonline.co.uk/neonbl ... t/4655.jpg

I think that shade of purple has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

I think your best bet would be Indigo from Buyhair:

It's a matt colour but I can't comment on how well it seals for dreads. This may help you: http://www.hairextensionforum.com/viewt ... 1e#p248753

Actually that picture you linked doesn't show the discontinued purple uv very truthfully. The discontinued purple uv is second from left in my pic above. Plastikhaar probably has it. At least. Otherwise it's diseappeared from the face of earth.

I just checked my Plastikhaar color ring and it's either vampir violet or fuchsia that matches. I don't have any of the discontinued purple here to check against the swatches, but they're both very close.

The UV purple is definately discontinued unfortunately. PC10 purple is the closest ive seen to it. I think if you blended that with LA Trend Purple you could get a similar colour, though it woulnt be UV.

Comparison picture.. Lexy PC10 at the top, PH fuchsia in the middle, PH vampir violet on the bottom.

It's not the best picture because I'm in my office under flourescent lighting, but I figured posting it wouldn't hurt :)

Also you get to similar color if you blend purple with fuchsia (H purple).

I'm not looking for it to be UV just looking for a similar colour, but between these 3 what would be the best?

Sensationnel Deep Purple
Jazzy Deep Purple
LA Trend Purple (i think i own this but it was deep purple on packet?)

None of those are similar really, as they are all deep purple in colour. Sensationnel is the lightest of the 3. LA trend the brightest and jazzy the darkest, but there is very little in it. I think blending with another colour would get you what you are after.
