Ingrid has purple hair – or perhaps I should say amethyst! She’s a YA writer and children’s book illustrator who says:

One of my ongoing word collections is of colors. I love to stop in the paint section of a hardware store and find new names for red or white or yellow.

Having a variety of color names at my fingertips helps me to create specificity in my writing. I can paint a more evocative image in my reader’s mind if I describe a character’s hair as the color of rust or carrot-squash, rather than red.
