You’ll love the natural ingredients and benefits of Manic Panic hair dye! This semi-permanent color is 100% vegan, free of PPD and ammonia, and made from natural ingredients. It coats the hair strands instead of penetrating them, leaving you with vibrant colors lasting up to 8 weeks on pre-lightened or naturally light blonde hair. It’s also available in fantasy colors for those with sandy blonde hair (level 8 or higher).
Manic Panic also offers temporary products like Amplified Temporary Hair Color Spray and Dye Hard Color Styling Gel for those looking for a one-day look. To get the best results from this brand, it’s vital to bleach your hair to at least level 7 before dyeing, do a patch test for allergies, wash your hair with clarifying shampoo without using conditioner beforehand, cover it with a plastic shower cap for at least 30 minutes when applying the dye, and rinse it with cold water until the water runs clear but don’t shampoo afterward.
The longevity of Manic Panic depends on several factors, such as your hair type/condition (average or medium porosity is ideal), how often you wash your hair (the less you wash it, the better), what type of dye you use (darker colors tend to last longer due to containing more pigments) as well as other factors such as sun exposure and chlorine in pools which can cause fading faster. Aftercare is key if you want to prolong the life of Manic Panic; use sulfate-free shampoos and deep conditioners regularly, avoid heat styling tools, etc.
