Once upon a time, years and years ago, I used this standard commercial hair dye product (not an alternative dye like manic panic or anything like that), I'm sure I got it at a local grocery store, and I feel very positive that the color was called eggplant, but in reality it totally could have been called something else. My hair is naturally medium brown; after using this dye it was almost black colored - but when it was backlit it had a very strong purple highlight which I associate as eggplant colored (hence why I feel so strongly that it was called eggplant). I was in the grocery today and all the colors are called black, soft black, darkest brown, auburn...just regular hair colors. Does anyone have an idea what brand/what color hair dye that might have been, if it even still exists? I really want to find it. thanks!
