No, I didn't do an all over color, just the under layer of my bangs. I used some leftover dye, Ultra Violet by Manic Panic.
Yes, that looks nice, doesn't it? I, of course, didn't feel the need to bleach due to having blonde hair at the moment.
My first experience with the color:
I went for dying every last strand of my hair purple. Yep. But, it only dyed parts of it, and the parts it did dye were faded and gross! After a while, I thought this was just because I didn't use enough/didn't work it through all my hair (I had half a jar left and didn't use a tint brush). That brings us to...
I decided I needed some color, and thought just doing some of my bangs would work- I wouldn't have to care if it started to fade, I could just use some more dye (And not have to order more dye online/track down a store that sells the colors I like, make a total mess applying it and spend all that time trying to work highly stainable (Oh, you know what I mean...) gloop through impossibly thick hair). Anyway, I followed all the instructions, even used some heat (for like a minute) and left it on for 25 minutes, when the max was 30. I made sure I had extra in my hair, I worked it through thoroughly and...
SAME DAMN THING! Only this time, it covered all of it. In an awful faded purple. I looked at their website moments ago (I found the pic on it), and they said they left it on for like an hour. WHY THE HELL DOESN'T THE PACKAGING SAY THAT?!
Anyway, not pleased with manic panic. Perhaps it is just the color? But I think I'll look for another brand.
Which brings me to...
Anyone know a good brand? I have used Special Effects (Faded super fast, but that may just have been the green), Splat (Fades sooooooooo fast), and I've been advised not to use Raw.
Side note: Why does is it there does not seem to be a silver hair dye? I think there's a white one (I want), but why not silver? It looks cool! (Imagine black hair with silver streaks... Epic.)
