I do agree about Directions - Spring green, I made sure it'd take by leaving it on over night.  Washes out easily too, though reapplying worked alright.  And once you get it to stick, it is a nice bright, vibrant colour.

Special Effects Napalm Orange. I've been doing this color for years against my will because I cant even get it out with bleach (I have naturally dark dark flat black hair, so I know a thing or 2 about bleach)

Freshly done:

after about 5 or 6 months

Very useful with the pics too!  Thanks!
Manic Panic: Vampire Red: From white hair it takes a very circus/clowny redy pinky shade. I wasn't keen on it at all but as my hair faded and i reapplied it, it got darker and far better on the eye, it was good, although it bled and ran like crazy and didn't last long. It also faded orange, not pink, which was nice.

Stargazer: Plume: This was a nice purple or at least looked good when applied to black, it made my hair an interesting blacky purple. In dark and low light it looked black and in bright light it had a nice purple tint to it. Lasted reasonably well and didn't bleed out as much as manic panic.

Directions: Poppy Red: My favourite. I love red and this was a winner. Vibrant, long lasting, stays strong even after multiple washes and its cost effective.
Directions: Apple Green: Not my favourite colour but otherwise same as above, this brand is amazing(for my hair at least).

Seriously. I love this brand to death.

La Riche hair dye is also really good and cheap.

And food dye is really good as well.

Food dye? That's a new one...

It wouldn't fuck up your hair would it?

I cant imagine why it would
Idunno, just wondering.

new for oranges:

Special Effects Napalm Orange: when first dyed its a borderline red but fades to the definition of orange. Think crayon colors.

Special Effects Hi-Octane Orange: when first dyed it is red! just dyed it this color an hour ago. I'll update when its faded.

 

my favorite of the 2 is Napalm orange. If I wanted red, I'd buy red

Any update on Hi-Octane Orange?  Did it fade to orange?

Blah, I completely forgot to update my scientific findings! haha

It fades into naplam orange, kinda weird, I'd say its a redder version of napalm.

Now I'm doing Nuclear Red, its darker than in pictures you find on the web, and bleeds allot. Bleached/dyed my hair on the 6th, marked it on my calendar this time so I can fill ya in on how long it lasts!
