  • Check the colour application range to make sure this product is suitable for your natural hair colour
  • Remember, if your hair’s previously coloured, this may affect results
  • Avoid staining your fav jumper by having an old towel at the ready and use some skin barrier cream around your hairline/ears
  • Have some cotton pads and skin toner handy just in case you get some product on your skin
  • If you’re lucky enough to have thick locks or hair longer than shoulder length, you’ll need two or more packs for a nice, even coverage

I was ready for a statement hair colour and picked up a box of Live Colour in Mystic Violet. Can honestly say I have never been so amazed with how vibrant the colour turned out! Really made up with the product and the guidelines were very helpful!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Thanks for your great review, Aimee. We're glad to hear you're loving your colour :)

I didn’t have high expectations for this colour as my hair was mainly black with bits of brown, pink and blonde (all previous colours) with about 4 months of root growth too! BUT it has given an incredibly even coverage! My hair is now quite dark again but in the sunlight it’s GLORIOUSLY PURPLE!!! My favourite colour choice by far (and I have had a few!) I’m so pleased with the results I went out of my way to tell you all about it
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Thank you so much Maki, so happy to hear you're loving the Mystic Violet <3 <3

If I had wanted Burgundy hair I would of bought that colour...but I want violet..in my head and on the packet that is a purple with blue tones ...so disapointed..especially as I have white hair and usually I get the best colour tones possible....this was so so my worst experiance with your dyes....its not what is advertised on the box
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hello Sue, we're sorry to hear of this! When you can, we recommend you contact our Colour Advisory Team- as they will be able to help you with this. They can be reached on 0800 328 9214 or at consumer.advisory@henkel.com. Thank you!

I had dark brown hair and lighter purple tones already in my hair. Unfortunately this product has left my hair almost black. Only purple is on my scalp. Disappointed.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hello Selina, thank you for taking the time to review. We're sorry to hear of this, we can only assume that applying the Mystic Violet on top of your previous colour has created a dense, block result. We recommend our Permanent shades are used on Natural hair colour only, to achieve the tones depicted on the box. Hope this helps!

Not what it says on the box. Went red not purple!!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Amy, thanks for getting in touch. We're sorry to hear that you didn't get the results you were expecting. This can occur for a number of reasons based on your individual hair type and hair history and is especially likely if your hair still has other colour in it. We'd love to help you achieve the colour you're after so if you'd like to, do give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a call on 0800 328 9214 and an advisor will be happy to help. Thank you.

Love this colour I used this one and and when it faded used a different purple in the range I get comments all the time on how nice my colour is, only down side is they tend to fade to a brownish colour after a time maybe because I am naturally blonde.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Lovely to hear Alison! You can keep your purple tone topped up in between your root-regrowth application, using the Ultra Brights Purple Punk! Hope this helps, and thank you so much for your lovely review :)

The colour itself is very easy to apply. The colours come out exactly shown on the back of the box. And the finished look is amazing
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Thank you for your lovely review Ellie, glad to hear you're loving your colour result! :)

I got this dye because I was impressed by all the positive reviews. I had very high hopes but it took me more than an hour to wash off the dye after application. Now, I am not sure if I was supposed to try to wash it all off or if it is supposed to eventually come off by regular washing. Consequently, the colour merely shows at all. But I have natural black hair, so I was only hoping to get *some* colour to show and not a bright violet. I am willing to buy this again if there's a chance I mistook the application process. As long as the water was running colour, I kept trying to get it all off. What should I do differently next time to get a brighter colour?
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Anupoma, thanks for getting in touch. When you rinse the colour after application, you should rinse until the water runs clear. Some colour running on subsequent washes is normal but the rate at which it washes out can be dependent on your individual hair type and history. If you hair is very porous, it means it cannot hold onto the colour as well and will wash out more quickly. For a more vibrant colour on darker hair, you may need to pre-lighten and then use a semi-permanent colour. However, it really depends on exactly what look you are trying to achieve! To help you further with this, please contact our Schwarzkopf Advisory team on 0800 328 9214 and an advisor will be happy to give you an individual phone consultation to help you get and maintain the colour you're after. Thank you.

Unfortunately has gone quite red on me. It's only been on my hair for three days now and it's gone a burgundy sort of colour. In most lights it just looks brown though.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Kat, we're sorry to hear that the colour didn't turn out as expected. If you'd like to discuss this further, please give our Schwarzkopf Advisory team a ring on 0800 328 9214. Thank you.

Love the colour however it is more of a semi permanent as it does wash out. Would be great if it stayed the colour it's supposed to be.
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Hi Jade, sorry to hear that. As with most colourants, colour longevity can vary according to individual hair type/history. To help colour last, we'd recommend using shampoos/conditioners specially designed for coloured hair. If you'd like any more advice on this do contact our Schwarzkopf Advisory Service on Freephone 0800 328 9214. Thanks.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this colour!!! Been using it for 3 years now and last year there was a shortage in our local shops so I bought 12 boxes when it came back in .. don't know what I'd do if it was ever discontinued ... really gorgeous colour and I always get lovely comments about it. Also great as it covers ALL my grey! I have short hair and it grows really quickly so my roots show within 3 weeks but this is such good quality I can colour when needed and my hair is in great condition. GREAT PRODUCT!!!!
Response from Schwarzkopf LIVE: Wonderful to hear, Bev - thanks for the review!
