I just dyed my hair Vampire Red- Manic Panic, I bleached my hair twice, and its not as dark as it looks in the bottle, in fact its really intense eye popping red. Ive only washed my hair once, so i dont know how long it will last yet

Looks like almost the same shade but a little lighter in some pics than my current Directions - Pillarbox Red.

 

How's the fading going?

I've left some out of the list, after realising without the exact shade names, the general colour advice might not hold for a particular dye of the same colour.

 

But thank you for all those ones, it's still good for people to read to get a general idea of what to potentially expect from so some colours in the ranges.

Wow you have used a lot of different colors! Holy Crap! I've only been dying my hair for 2 years and I started with the typical Hot Topic stuff, like Raw and Manic panic, and it never worked. Ever. I dyed my hair bright pink and it looked orange. Sadly I can't find pictures. But then I tried Cherry Bomb by Special Effects, and that stuff is awesome! It's my go to Pink, I almost always have it in my hair and it lasts for months. It's the best for the first week or so and then after a few washes it does get lighter, but it still stays really vibrant for a really long time. Other than that I haven't explored to much with color since I love pink so much. The picture I have for my profile pic isn't Cherry Bomb though, that was a profesionals hair dye, I don't know what she used.

 

So "Cherry Bomb - Pink stays in forever, also even after dying it brown, my hair slowly faded to pink till I bleached it all out." 

I dyed my hawk like 2 months ago using all my dye leftovers. Little bit of manic panic midnight blue, little bit of punky colors turquoise, spring green, and forest green. The stupid manic panic stained the shit out of my tub and skin for weeks but the color was this epic blue/green. It looked like a peacock ^.^ I think it's a little more green then blue now but the color is still bright. It's starting to fade to a darker spring green looking color. I'm sure is got a few more moths before I'll need to redye it :)

Have had La Riche Directions - Pillarbox Red in for the last month or so.  Good colour match, but took longer to settle in...didn't fade much in 1st wash.

 

(Thanks for the posts above!  Will update the list later to include the latest added ones soon.)

Does anyone know if Amplified Hot Hot pink is any good? does it fade quickly?

I've not heard of that one before... But perhaps if you make a thread titled about it someone will spot it and be able to help more! :D  Then I'll add it to the list - or if you decide to try it first, let us know how it goes here too.
Sorry, it turned out its Manic Panic but its in their amplified range, i missed the Manic panic bit when i was looking over it, but it's ordered and once its been put to use i'll let everyone know the results.
i used manic panic purple haze two weeks ago. it was a darker purple than i wanted and at this point my hair is hideous.
for white check out manic panic virgin snow

I know a girl that used Special Effects Napalm orange and it looked intense! very in-your-face for around 3 weeks and even when it fades it still looks nice, I would get it myself but that's just copying.

 

This is a really helpful thread Kobalos, thankyou very much for making/maintaining this, I think I'm gonna get Punky Colors spring green due to the good feedback & I'll let you know how it goes!
