I used this color to touch up my very faded purple. I wanted something ULTRAVIOLET— something that would shine like a beacon from miles away. Orchid purple does just that! This color is a total star. Easy to apply (highly recommend the brush & bowl set as well) and left a crazy vibrant color, while also making my hair feel super soft. I also ended up having more color left over than I anticipated, which will be great for touch ups!
