So my name is Kioko :) I have been using Manic Panic since the first time I dyed my hair about two years ago. I’m almost 16 now, and everyone at any of the schools the next four districts over all know me for my colorful and unique hair :) I’ve had a lot of people come up to me, and ask what color will be next, and if I’ll do their hair. I’ve cut and dyed a lot of other people’s hair as well. My hair has been pretty much every color of the rainbow. My mom even keeps a board where she pins pictures of all my different haircolors haha :)
I started out with one After Midnight Blue streak in the front of my bangs, which then progressed to being Fuschia Shock.
I then had my hair permanently straightened, and parted down the middle. I dyed both sides of the bangs in the front with Wildfire Red, with highlights of the same color in brown. I used the really old one you used to make that GLOWS under black lights :) I even still have the container on my shelf. This is when my hair was the Wildfire Red. I’m the one on the left.
(NOTE: There were a few too many pictures of all the different colors for me to be able to send them as attachments, since Gmail has a file size limit)
Not long after, I bleached the entire top layer of my hair with Flash Lightning bleach, and then dyed it with Pretty Flamingo. I only left it in for about an hour, so the bangs were a lot brighter than the rest.
I waited for the pink to fade out, and then dyed all of it once again with Bad Boy Blue. It came out incredibly bright. When I dyed it, I left the dye in overnight with a towel wrapped around it, and then rinsed it out in the morning. It lasted for a really long time, and then faded into the coolest sea foam green color. As it faded, I redyed the back with the Bad Boy Blue, and then dyed streaks in the front with Lie Locks, and Green Envy. I kind of just overlapped the dye so they kind of faded into eachother. I left it on all day while I worked on art commissions, and then rinsed with cold water.
After a while, I bleached it, and then dyed one side of the bangs with the remaining Pretty Flamingo, the other side with New Rose, the middle stripe is done with Electric Banana, and the back strip is done with watered down Shocking Blue. I took the dye, and mixed it, two parts dye to one part water, and it made it a bit paler.
I then rebleached with Flash Lightning, getting it as light as I could, before dying all of my pink. It looked like Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time’s hair when I straightened it haha :)
I added Purple Haze and Shocking Blue once again to try and get the same effect as my hair had before. It was also the longest my hair had ever been. It was down to my waist, and looked amazing!
I dyed it back dark brown, then used Flash Lightning bleach to put in highlights over the dark brown for a neat contrast. Every other streak that I did, I dyed my hair Rock N’ Roll Red. I dyed it darker, then bleached only the bangs. and it was blonde for a bit, then I dyed the blonde part with New Rose
I then cut my hair, and bleached the entire top layer, then dyed it with Electric Lizard. It was incredibly bright. This time, I remembered to blow dry it with the dye in, so it locked in with heat. I then dyed half of my hair back brown, so ym hair was half Elctric Lizard, and half natural dark brown. With the same haircut, I dyed it purple haze at the top of it and dyed Shocking Blue at the bottom. After ti faded, I dyed it Pillarbox Red, and Raven.
I then attempted to do my most crazy hair so far. I dyed it rainbow using Wildfire, Electric Lava, Electric Banana, Electric Lizard, Enchanted Forest, After Midnight Blue, and Purple Haze. It looked really amazing for about half a month before it started to fade. I remember sitting in the living room with a paint brush and four mirrors placed strategically around the room.
I was forced to get rid of most of the color due to teachers becoming frustrated with my hair. So I used two whole cans of the Raven dye, and the Hot Hot Pink for one small streak in the front. I curled it, and went rather gothic for a bit. I absolutely loved how the Raven didn’t lose its color.
I bleached the top layer one last time, and added different shades and streaks of Bad Boy Blue, Electric Amethyst, Mystic Heather, and Shocking Blue. It turned out kind of like cotton candy colors.
Currently, it is my natural dark brown hair. I added little bits of Pillarbox Red over the top of the natural brown, and it gave it the most beautiful cherry tint. I’m very happy with it, and will probably leave it this way since it matches my dear’s hair :)
I really love Manic Panic! It is my favorite brand of dye, and I’m also a 4 year vegetarian so the dye being vegan is a wonderful bonus! :)
Thank you so much!
Updated: My hair was bleached out so it went from blonde to red to black like my eyes, there’s a picture on here
And currently my hair is black underneath with pink on the top, and down to my mid-back. There’s also pictures on here.
