    I really want to dye my hair a dark red/purple colour. My hair is very dark, about one or two shades away from black. I have the Loreal Casting Creme Gloss in Blackcurrant which is for dark hair, which I will use. As I've never dyed my hair before, I'm not sure of all the brands. Are there any good red/purple dyes aimed at darker hair colours? Thank you

    I've found that Garnier Olia - the purple one is good. Although when you first rinse out the dye, the purple is quite dark - almost black.

    Not aimed specifically at dark hair, but I used http://images4.mysupermarket.co.uk/P.../54/302554.jpg

    (I love Schwarzkopf stuff). It came out pretty faithful to the box colour, perhaps a tad more red. My hair's a mid-dark brown.

    I've used many hair dyes and found Garnier Olia Deep Violet to be the best.

    You could go with the purple one but before using hair color just make sure that the hair color is ammonia free.
