I used to always go with the red/purple-ish shades. My hair is dark, so it would give it a redish look. You could see it best in the sun, but it only lasted a short time.
Your welcome! :D
Just a piece of advice from doing my own home coloring (okay, I had help), but you know what I mean. Definitely do it a few days prior so that you are able to make sure that none of the dye stays on your skin. I always ended up with it on my neck and ears.
