The far right is 4RO on white hair.

You can see from the mixtures that RV tends to take over the formula even when there is only 1/2 an ounce of RV added to 3 times as much RO.
Remember this, A small amount of RV with neutralize the orangeness of an RO and make it lean more toward a cool red.

And… a little RO in an RV formula will make it appear brighter.
