I purchased two boxes of this color since I have long hair. I have been coloring my hair at home for several years and wanted something more purply. This was exactly what I wanted. I had a red-violet color already on my hair, so this gave it a little more pizzaz and looks super bright, but not freaky in the sunlight. I really love it. I think you will too. It's been 3 weeks and the only reason I have to color my hair again is because my salt and pepper hair roots are showing. The color is still vibrant. Remember to use a sulfate free shampoo and color conditioner and don't wash your hair everyday, especially if you have long hair.

It is a bit messy because of how bright the color is, so make sure to put vaseline around your hair line, use a drape around your clothes, and put cellophane around the sink so you don't get any stains on the sink or counter top. I'm kind of a messy applier, so I have to take all the precautions. If you do get stains, use ajax and it will pretty much clean it up.

This is the only place I have been able to find this product. So if you like it, buy it here.

This came out VERY dark on my hair. I started off with a light auburn color, so it wasn't that I was putting it on top of something dark. Maybe if I left it on half as long as it told me to? I don't know. I was hoping that this would actually look purple, but in most lights it looks like a very dark brown. If I'm out in the sun, you can definitely tell that it's purple (I had a friend even comment on how different it looked in different lights). I was thinking some of the darkness would lighten since I had read that this fades pretty quickly, but for some reason on me it's really not budging (I even tried washing my hair twice a day for a while...). I'm bummed because I really wanted to like this (my hair feels pretty nice, and it's not harsh or anything). Sadly, I won't be using this again, it's just way too dark for me.

        Color is great! Tried to get this color from a professional hair stylist on 2 separate visits with no success. I spent a ton of money and went home unhappy. I get tons of comments on the color. I love it!

        This hair color is amazing! It came out a little darker than I anticipated, but as it fades, it looks better and better. I plan on keeping my hair this color for a while. Thank you!

Nothing ..Please Vidal Sassoon do not stop making this ! And drugstore.com keep it in stock I can only find it here :) The color is perfect. I have never had so many compliments from strangers and friends on how awesome this London Lilac is :) :) LOVE!!!!

                Don't bother with semi-permanent hair color anymore if you like purple, blue or bright red hair. This color lasts for 6 weeks. Still best to bleach your hair on the parts you are coloring to get the best effect.

                Really gorgeous purple color. It is not a very extreme purple on my dark hair, it was more of a purplish burgundy and it did not seem to last very long. I had to redo it in about 6 weeks because my roots were showing. I will probably buy this color again but I wanted to try the runway red and blue black colors first.
                It you want really bright purple or red you will need to bleach your hair first unless you have blonde hair. I was not willing to do so because I would probably get in trouble at work for dying my hair unnatural colors. However so far both the runway red and london lilac were different enough for me to like them and natural looking enough to not get me fired or written up :)
                I will be trying the blue-black midnight muse color next.
