PostSubject: Dye Question   Fri Dec 12, 2008 2:30 am

I havent dyed my hair "crazy" colors since High school. Right now its black and red.
Id like to dye some blue at the front where my bangs are.
Ive had bad luck with manic panic washing out.

So to all the dye-skilled lasses:
Any tips on brands or techniques to make colors like blue stick to dyed (and bleached prior of course) hair???

I dont want blonde or ugly grey strips a week later. yknow?

Special Effects hair dye is my GOD.

I have dark dark hair. So i have to bleach the shit out of it before i can dye it anything other then black. Special Effects stays in my hair FOREVER. It does however rub off on everything. Saying that blue is like red in that it fades really quickly. So when i dyed my hair blue once it turned green in about 2 weeks. Now i only used one bottle and have really really thick hair so that had a lot to do with it. But even when i do it correctly it fades quicker then other colors.

So I personally would recommend Special Effects. Now you will probably have to get it on ebay. Last i heard they where fighting a lawsuit of some kind and Hot topic stopped stocking it.

Oh i hate manic panic. It was fine when i was a teen and couldn't have anything lasting. But now that i want it to stay in for a wile it just doesn't cut it. It does rub off on everything though. If you go to my myspace you can see some pictures of the pink i keep in my hair. I haven't dyed my hair in about 6 months and its just now really fading out from pink to orange.
