I'm a L'Oreal girl for hair color. Usually I get Majirouge 6.60 w/ a red mixer to get the shade like RhiRhi had. I'm giving L'Oreal HiColor for dark hair Red a try. It was easy to apply but a bit messy. No matter how much petroleum you pack on with long hair the neck will get stained. Luckily I bought stain removing wipes also. This waiting time sucks I want to see the color!! Well this is what I used and before I applied and after I saturated my head... More after pics later..
