Getting Back to Natural Hair Color After Dyeing

I'm looking for some advice. My hair is currently an unevenly faded purple (Arctic Fox Violet Dream), which I absolutely love and have loved in every stage of its fading. Unfortunately, my sister is getting married in a few weeks and wants me, as her Maid of Honor, to have a more natural hair color. Both of us have naturally medium-dark brown hair, so I think it would make the most sense to go back to that color.

My question is, should I try to lift the purple from my hair before I dye it brown, or will I be able to sufficiently cover it if I use a dark enough dye?

since it's that long and fading you obviously did it a long time ago-you can safely use a semi-permanent that washes out over time with no prep. try clairol natural instincts in a light brown or however dark u want to go-do it a week b4 and you'll be good to go

I would lift it first, then recolor.
