Manic Panic

I've tried several different shades in the past and was always satisfied. good product, easy to work with. it doesn't last very long, a week at the most? I think it might depend on the shade. but that was part of the fun for me, being able to try out different colors on a weekly basis.

Washes out quickly

I never seem to have good luck with Manic Panic hair dyes, and I'm a hardcore crazy hair color kinda gal. Manic Panic always seems to wash out super quickly on me, no matter how bleached my hair is or how long I keep it in for. I think the longest I was able to get a hair color to stay with MP was a week, which is no time at all. Have had much better luck with Special Effects and Pravana, my two go-to's for colored hair dye.

Washes out fast!

I LOVED how bright this purple is supposed to be but it washes out of my hair so quickly--and I only wash my hair once a week! When I dye my hair, I leave it in for at least 3 hours and apply a color sealer to try to lock in as much as I can. Overall I will never be buying Manic Panic again because its just too much upkeep for a color that will only last me 2 weeks.

My go-to dye

I hear a lot of bad things about this product, but honestly I stopped using anything else when I found this product! Stays in my hair wonderfully and the color lasts for me a lot longer than other dyes. it is rather messy, but so worth it.

This product is my go-to dye. the color is too perfect and beautiful. I get so many compliments! Manic panic is messy, but so worth it. The color stays in my hair really well and I chose this dye over any other red hair dye.

Great Color, Fades Fast!

I loved the color! It was vibrant and beautiful! One of my favorite shades of purple. It is like the swatch. Like a purple iPod? However, it faded extremely fast. Within' two washes hair was dusty purple pink. I have used other semi permanent colors from different brands, and they have held up more.

Not a big fan.

Manic Panic is not my favorite. I'd rather dye my hair with kool-aid before I use this! Color lasted for about 2 days. It was awesome those two days! Bright, intense, vivid color!! Some people love it though. So just because it didn't work for me, doesn't mean it won't work for you.

As far as color goes, its great. It comes out vibrant and easily dyes over dark hair, but I do reccomend bleaching before. (it does condition deeply so it helps with some of that bleach damage). I've used numerous shades, my favorite being rock n roll red - though be forewarned it does take a lot of upkeep to keep in your hair. I wash in cold water and add dye to my conditioner to give it a boost, I also only wash my hair 2-3 times a week because it can have a fast fade out. especially red. leave it in for at least 3 hours. I do between 4-6.

definite pro is being able to mix custom shades. I just did after midnight and shocking blue and am 100% pleased with the color.

as for Raven, be careful. its a beautiful color but it will fade out to green. :/

I absolutely loved it. It smells great, the color is really vibrant and it hydratates your hair! I've only tried this Rock n Roll Red color but I'm trying other shades for sure.

I have 5 different shades of red 2 pinks 2blues and 2 purples! So good to stock up on! Beautiful. Bright colors. Semi-permanent so you have to touch it up more than a real dye. Everytime I shower I put a little in with my conditioner to make sure it stays bright and beautiful! Love these reds especially! Made with vegetable products so it does not damage hair! Witch I amazing for me because I have hair dyeing addiction! I've been every color in the book! Red as shown in this picture, blue, pink, purple. One thing about this product though: if you have dark hair you will not get a good result. It will not be bright and also will not be the color you originally planned. You would need to bleach the part you wanted first. Or your whole head witch we all know its insanely unhealthy. But like I said. Amazing; bright colors!
