lime (more yellowish):
Image

neon green (really intense):
Image

emerald or forest green (I believe it's the same shade by a different name.
But it's more intense IRL, there is actually NO colour like the real thing in Photoshop.no kidding.)
Image

mossy green-it's a mixed colour with some white and yellow thrown in.
don't buy it, it doesn't seal anyway:
Image

I used forest green and neon green in this kit, forest on top of the transition, neon green next to it.
Image

sorest green again against lightest green:

get the love? :D

whilst we are on the subject of greens... I hate it when customers ask for colours from photos, I am really bad at identifying them T-T

So can anyone help me, I need to know the greens in this photo, also I can't really tell if the lightest shade is actually green or a yellow... its bright X_X

I can name petrol green.. and black thats about it. I know the medium colour is actually a blend but not sure which

Image Image

Thankies girls

I knew the girl in the photo looked familiar :lol:

Its Cathy / MiasmaHair .
Apparently Brandalynn made those dreads.
I'm sure if you'd ask Brandalynn she could tell you exactly which colors were used .

Hi ladies! Just after some advice.

Basically, I'm naturally a ginger, and all the dreadkits I've made have been in this colour. I've recently dyed my hair red and I have a hankering for some dreads. Does anyone know which colours available from buyhair would be the best match for someone with the same colour as the forum banner? There's a couple I've spotted but I'm unsure if they would match.

it's kind of complicated, cause the pic has several shades depending how the light stikes it.

but I'd reduce it to antique red, ruby red and cinnamon. :)

Hah, yeah I should have specified! *duh*

But "Cherry Red" definitely looks like the best option! Thank you :D

Just a head's up, the last time I brought Cherry Red it was nowhere near the swatch, much more pink. They changed the formula for the blend and have't updated the swatch.

looking for dark purple advice. I'm looking for kk that matches SFX Deep Purple after it's lightened just a bit and stopped looking black, and/or a slightly bluer Directions Plum (like when you mix in a bit of Directions Violet)

In other words i need kk that's medium to dark and slightly more towards blue-purple. I definitely DON'T want something that's pinky/reddish purple, more towards the middle of the spectrum or falling slightly into the bluish range. Im confused by some of the swatches on here as well as who carries what brands such as BNG, jazzy etc. as far as Buyhair and Afrocare and IKS's and DiversityHair and DreadViolet's purples *head spins* I already know the Afrocare Orchid shade is WAY too pinky for me, so what's the difference between BH's Deep Purple and Afrocare's Deep Purple, and what brand is it really? How do those compare to Jazzy's Grape and BNG's Dark Purple? I'm rather fond of the two darkest shades on the right side of this pic Image what brand IS that? i'm unsure though since it looks MUCH more blue than the left-most purple in this pic Image and also the next to last one here: Image and I am not sure if it's *too* blue lol. Can someone post pix of these side to side so I can tell the tonal differences, and also describe how they compare to SFX Deep Purple and Directions Plum/violet on human hair?

sorry that got so rambly lol. Looking for a relatively quick answer as I need to place an order for kk by the end of the day :)

One of these two dark purples is Jazzy's Grape - I think it's the second from the right.
Another one might be something from Sensationnel.

LA Trend deep purple is a tiny little bit lighter than Jazzy grape. Both of these are lighter and more blueish than orchid.

Jazzy Grape is now alot lighter (more a match to the second from the left), as they switched the name... Jazzy deep purple is a better match to that, and as dreadviolet said, LA trend deep purple is a tiny bit lighter.

www.diversityhair.co.uk ;) Jenna sells both the Jazzy and LA Trend brands.

Both LA Trend and Jazzy are predominately UK/European brands, much like BNG is a predominately US brand.
