I wanted to dye my hair pink but I could find a good enough dye to use. I've heard a lot of good reviews about this brand so decided to give it a try and I'll just say hands down this is the best hair dye I've ever used in my life. It's so bright and smells great to. It's when vegan which is even better. ...read more

This dye is a total hit. From lime green to flamingo pink, Jerome Russell’s products are nothing short of funky. The colors show up vibrant even on the darkest of hair. A little bit of color comes out with each wash, creating a more pastel approach. ...read more

I really loved this dye. I didn't want such a Scarlett red so I mixed it with conditioner and blue hair tint from 3ce. My concoction was about half the tube of red dye with about 3/4 a bottle of the suave professionals conditioner (keratin version bc that one is white) and a couple squirts of the blue just to deepen the color. I started from the bottom layers to the top then to the crown of my head. The whole process took me about 3 hours to apply bc I was watching Netflix so the bottom hairs got 3 hours of sitting as opposed to the top that got only 20 minutes which is why the color is way more intense. I've washed the top part of my hair about 3 times and the dye came out pretty easily but that's probably bc I left it on for less time and because I mixed the dye with other stuff. But the good thing is that it fades so prettily and it connects well with the bright red. My hair originally was a warm blonde with really blonde ends so the dark to light fade helped with the look of my current hair. My hair did feel a little dry after but I used the 3 minutes conditioner by Aussie the next day and it was super soft :) love this dye! ...read more

So I've always wanted to try Manic Panic. Growing up, I was never allowed to have "crazy hair." So as an adult with a job that allowed crazy hair, I was stoked to finally be able to use Manic Panic.
And It's an awesome product!
Bright colors that last a long time. For me, anyway. Proper hair care is the key. Bleach your hair first. Leave the hair dye in for at LEAST an hour. Rinse with cold water. Don't wash with shampoo every day. And when you do, use cold water! Cold water is the key! It keeps the color, longer. Also, adding a little bit of the dye to your conditioner helps as well.

I'm excited to dye my hair again with this stuff. I will ALWAYS recommend this brand to anyone who wants brightly colored hair. ...read more

I really like this Colorista hair dye, I have tried every brand of fashion colors and this ranks up with the top brands. What I love - This dye has a great consistency, it's not super thick which can be very difficult to apply, it's more of a conditioner consistency. Applying it was easy, there was no discernable scent which was great. I left it on my level 9 bleached hair for 30 minutes and one thing that really surprised me was when I was rinsing there was almost no color loss. I've never rinsed a fashion color and had the water run nearly clear the whole time. My hair is soft, maybe a little more conditioned than before applying the color. The pink was very true to tone, sometimes when I apply colors to my blonde hair the colors can be off. It turned out a very pretty dusty rose shade since my hair is not a white blonde. I'm very curious how long the pink will last and how the color will change as it fades.
The only thing I didn't like is the brush that was included in the kit, the bristles were too far apart and for my thick hair it just didn't work. Maybe if you're going for streaks that brush will work but I was going for an all over color. ...read more

I was worried about trying this based off the reviews I saw on here but it's been two weeks now and I'm still super happy with my color and pay off . I had purple hair prior and bleached my roots and tried to wash as much of the previous color out as I could but there was still a good bit left over . I put this dye on left it on for two Hours and washed it off . If came put a strong vibrant purple which was great . But since then it's turned an even better purple pink color which I love . Some tips I have for keeping this color and any semi permanent color Is always wash your hair wish cold water and try to not wash your hair as often as you can . So I’m updating this since I switched colors to valentine. First great thing was I didn’t have to do a bleach bath to go from purple to red which was great . I just faded it out as much as I could and put the red right over it . It covered perfectly it also lasted so long over a month which is crazy for semi permanent color . It’s also super vibrant . ...read more
