Attempt #2 for red purple hair

My second attempt to move from red to purple brought me the darkest in color I’ve been in 10 years. I  used a manic panic semi permanent dye red mix and the oucome was far from the burgandy wine color I was expecting. Instead my hair looks like a dark brown with red/burgandy hues and is no longer a bright vibrant color like I’m used to having.

I switched over to a semi permanent dye because I wanted to give my hair a break from lighteners and it appears to be relatively healthier than before. I think my color selection was quite off and didn’t realize purple would darken the color.

So although I’m not exactly happy with this color, the semi permanent dye gives me hope it will lighten as it fades and I can try again next month.

Before and after pic below, I started with 2 boxes of loreal hicolor  hilights in Magenta mixed with 1 box of clairol flare in ultraviolet 4vvr to 1 container of manic panic rock n roll red mixed with 1 container of ultraviolet.
