lame, looks exactly the same as if I had done 100% devilish :P oh well. Maybe it will fade different, the stain on the gloves was very pink :|

Those colours don't look too far off the colour in my display pic. That was faded Directions Coral Red + Fire (roughly 2:1 ratio) over a faded reddy-brown Schwarzkopf box dye. It came out very "red" red to begin with, but faded to the fiery ginger quite quickly and stayed like that for a good while.

In fact, I'll hopefully be returning to that colour this weekend - toned it down for my new job but they seem pretty relaxed so I think I can get away with it!

Hmm I don't think I wanna have to dye my hair with a permenent XXL dye first..
Does anyone have any ideas of what colours I could use over a light ash blonde colour?

I'd say an orange based red, faded down a lil or diluted for more orange. Like coral red or fire?

SFX Hot Lava mixed with a bit of Candy Apple starts out a dark red like the top pic over a dark ginger base, and fades like the second pic.  I did 75% Hot Lava and 25% Candy Apple.  It was a really pretty colour, but it was not as bright as I wanted.  I would think it would take just fine over an ash blonde base.

ETA: The fade from red to a more orange-red happened pretty quickly, too.  Within the first week.  I was able to keep the colour topped up by adding some of the dye mix to my conditioner.

Hot Lava does seem like a very nice colour! I could always mix it with a cheaper Directions pinky red (I definitely can't afford 2 bottles of SFX!)

Or perhaps I could mix Directions Fire with a bit of Directions flame/mandarin?
Or would that be too orange?

I've only ever mixed the SFX, Martha... hopefully someone with Directions experience will chime in!

I really want one of the dark yet vibrant reds like in no.5 or no.13. I'd also be happy with a colour like no.3
As my hair has quite a light base colour atm would it be wise to box dye it with a dark red and up keep with veggies? OR as a less permanent alternative dying it all over with one of the more natural shade in the adore range. (my thinking is my current red will shine through) Then putting a red over that later on to top it up??? My ends are also a bit darker that my roots so I was hoping to mask that a bit too. OR is there a dark red dye on Beeunique that could achieve it one go? If so what shade & brand? :D Thanks in advance!!
Einstien would be confused...

I am loving the dark ginger tones here - I just whizzed back to a bit of pink for last week's charity shenanigans but I am seeing it as a base for ginger good times :)  Good to know I can get all semi dye experimental and preserve the locks!

It actually makes me really tempted to put black in my hair again ... but I always regret black once I do it!

You could do an extremely dark brown instead?

I just don't think it'd have the same impact :(  I might do it someday, though, when I get bored of playing with different mixes and need something a bit more but will still make work happy.

I'm a little obsessed with reds right now. I know I'd have to start from scratch, length and health-wise, if I go there and wanted my pastels back, though...

I know what you mean. I wanted red hair forever but i was afraid that it won't look good on me and that it would be hard to take it off but it's more than 2 years with red hair and I still love it :)
