Ah! Thank you! ^_^ Wasn't sure...and didn't check up. Will fix it now!
No problem. :]
anyone have experience with special effects? I want to try some of the colors, but the cheap part of me wants to know if they're as awesome as people claim...
ive also heard good things but i dont have the money to spend trying it =/
depends on the color. usually lasts too long for my patience
my favorite blue- punky colors turquoise. AMAZING COLOR and long lasting, fades to a nice light blue after a few months.

punky colors- flame. nice red/orange color, fades more to orange..very long lasting (i had a hard time getting it out!)

beyond the zone- candy apple red. nice shade of red, fades fairly quickly to a lovely pink which lasts about a month or two.
Thanks for those three - added. =) Handy descriptions too.
welcome ^.^
i also just used manic panics midnight blue.. its nice but it has alot of purple in it (which i kinda like) and it stained the hell out of my shower =/ even the back of my legs were blue from rinsing it out!
ugh, dont really recommend this shade.. its been weeks and everytime i take a shower it turns my tub blue and i have to scrub it with bleach and commet =/ for the first week or two it was turning my neck/face blue in my sleep.. it stains like a bitch! really not worth the effort..
The Ultra Violet doesn't sound good - what colour was it meant to be?
the L'Oreal Excellence HiColor - Magenta is actually red :) i wish it was purple! wonder if you could mix it with toner to change it... hmmmm

Permanent dyes: 

-  Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL Cyber Purple

and

-  Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL Mystic Violet

-These were my first colours. They are pretty similar. I alternated between the two.I first used mystic violet, which is more on the pink side and cyber purple is darker. By using both seperately each couple of months it created really nice tones :). I'd highly recommend them if you're looking for a more subtle and not so 'eccentric' and extremely vibrant colour.

 

- Directions Semi- Permanent Spring green

Worst thing ever. I had my hair bleached twice yesterday (did it at a salon place pretty cheap cause i get on with the guy), used this colour and it didn't take at all. It looked completely washed out already. We gave up on it and put a darker green (he didn't tell me what brand) over it which turned my hair turquoise. I wish I'd stayed with the purple!

Don't recommend it at all. Strongly advise you to stay away from it ^^

 

(I'll come back and put photos up if i remember)
