Review: Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Plum Perfection

by - June 23, 2012

Product: Schwarzkopf Live Colour XXL Plum Perfetion Hair Dye
Price: £4 sales
Colour: Red/Purple

I haven't dyed my hair for over 6 months. I dyed it in January Brown/Black with L'oreal mousse and I told myself I was never going to dye my hair again because I feel like once you start dying you have to keep it up. However, I really wanted a change and I got kind of bored of the black hair so I decided I want to dye my hair purple. I've dyed my hair in brown before with Liese, Loreal and going to a professional hairdresser but I got really bored of dying it brown so I wanted a change.
It was between red or purple, but I feel like most people dye their hair red and purple is different.



My hair is black with brownish bits at the bottom of my hair. I knew if I wanted to make it really noticeable I should get a lighter shade. I did not expect the colour of the package either.

After Dying:

 Day 5:

Verdict: 8/10 After the dye, the colour did not show but I was confident that after a few washes the colour would show (since this always happens to me) I don't think the camera showed the colour well in Day 5. I think it is abit lighter in real life. But  you can actually see the purple abit and I've only washed my hair once in the 5 days.
I am very pleased with this product, it was on sales when I bought it so I am pleased with the price. I dyed it myself and it was very easy to apply. The product made my hair soft and less greasy as well which is good because I have a oily scalp. I would definitely recommend people who has never dyed their hair because the colour really shows.

    1. Thank you so much! If it's your first time dying I recommend going light first but I think dying hair really depends on how you feel and what look you want. Hope this helps and thanks for commenting.

    1. Thanks for the comment :) I think it is better if you dye your hair really light first (like lighest brown) then try other colours. (or go for a really light red) x

  3. I've done this not long ago with Mystic Violet 87 with my dark asian hair only a few people have noticed deep purple tint when it was sunny. It was a good thing but eventually went red then deep pink.


    1. Thanks for the comment. Yeah, my hair is going red now when it is in the sun. I hope it doesn't turn ginger. lol x
