Its now been about a month, now its much more orange

Rad. Still super bright!

Looks like you got your orange - esp. at the back.  Good to know it fades to this shade.  Thanks for the update!  I'm sure others will find it useful too.

I ordered some Majicontrast in Red a couple weeks ago after reading great things about it. Since Henna was a bust for dying red over dark hair this is what I am trying next. Its a professional dye and you need a license to buy it but I got it off ebay and had it shipped over from the UK (for surprisingly cheap). I will be giving a try tonight after my hair finishes drying.

you must post pictures! 

good luck

It worked amazing. My hair is super dark brown, almost black (see eyebrows). I had a good 5 inches or more of roots and the rest was a reddish brown from the old henna. I got this color with no bleach! It lightens while it dyes. Indoors/under poor light its a little bit of a dark/magenta red and in good light/outside its super bright. I love it. I have read it lasts a long time too so we will see how that goes!

That is a fantastic photo and colour!  No bleach?  Wow!  Very interesting...  Glad it worked out so well for you too! :)

My honourary girlfriend has pink and blue hair, the blue is Directions Atlantic Blue, she dyed it in early august maybe earlier, it's still very blue, it goes through some nice colours as it fades too. I'mma use it tomorrow...my 6th form are gunna kill me....

My experience with Raw purple is that over bleached hair, I have to re-bleach my hair to get it out. As far as anything manic panic (I have used most colors of this brand) It begins to wash out a bit too quickly for my liking, and the electric lizard color wont even show up over bleach.

This might sound like an odd recommendation but I've been using the Schwarzkopf Live Color XXL in Raspberry Rebel (pink) and it maintains really well... I only have to reapply every 2 weeks (which is fantastic for me cause my hair doesn't take dye well at all and I wash it too often probably) Seriously my favorite pink ever.

It's extremely vibrant and it fades in sort of a pleasant sunset-looking pink.

Thanks!  Yeah, it does look a nice vibrant colour there.  Updated the list with it. =)

"What an amazing transformation! From 2012 when you were unsure about having a hawk, in 2013 you now "rock it with style". The hawk looks awesome, and it seems you are much more confident and self-assured as a person. An inspiration to us…"
