On Friday night I finally got around to experimenting with a tub of Manic Panic Electric Lava. It had been chosen especially for me and flown half way around the world by the wondrous Punk Glam Queen and my 'peely-wally' hair was long overdue a good dying.
Manic Panic classic cream dye is made from vegan ingredients and promises to actually condition your hair, rather than wreck it. Since stripping the black out I've been bleaching my hair roughly once every 6-8 weeks. Needless to say, it's not in the best of condition. When I applied the Manic Panic, I could actually feel my hair going "aaaahhhh..." - like when you apply after sun to sunburn. It literally soaked up the dye like a sponge. The end result is a little more red than the bright orange I was hoping for, but I'm putting that down to my dry porous locks and hoping that it will simply fade to orange and actually last a lot longer than my usual dye (Loreal Majicontrast in copper) which fades at a ridiculous rate - 1 week tops :(
As you can see, I've not chopped my fringe yet. I'd normally just attack it with my own hairdressing scissors, but I think I'm gonna be all adult about it and actually go to a professional - after I've seen a professional about my caterpillar eyebrows that lurk beneath it! Next week, I promise. Hope you've all had a good weekend? x
