Mohawks Rock

I know, I has been discussed here before...

but after spending several hours Saturday bleaching my hawk so I had some hope of the crazy color being visible, I am soooo annoyed that one of the Manic Panic dyes barely took and the other isn't exactly winning any prizes for it's staying power. 

   I usually buy local and here you either get Manic Panic and a choice of colors, or you can buy one other brand (the name escapes me now) in either Pink, Pinkish Red, or Black....not colors I want (at this time).    


   so let's hear your Manic Panic rants (and any good alternatives you've found/bad experiences ordering dye on line, etc).


  I am so freaking pissed that I paid NINE FREAKING DOLLARS A POT for hair dye that really doesn't dye anything except stuff you dont' want it on.  how in holy hell can this stuff stain my hands, my sink, my floor, my towels and yet NOT STICK TO MY FREAKING HAIR.  if i didn't think it was animal cruelty, i'd put a dot on one of the cats just to see if it had any staying power on them!!!!!   When I was a kid it was either MP or kool aid.  SURELY IN THE 15+ YEARS I'VE BEEN DOING THIS STUFF TO MY HAIR SOMETHING BETTER HAS COME ALONG!!! 

  I just want a good BRIGHT purple (I think I used MP ultra violet, purple haze is darker than what i want) I'd wanted a green, but couldn't find any local so I went with a turquoise-y color..not quite green, but not totally blue. The purple has done as well as can be expected...but the Turquoise was almost totally gone by Monday. WTF WTF WTF WTF.     Seriously, I'd been better off with kool least when it failed, I'd be out 88 cents, not nine dollars!!!!!!!!

steal it and I guarantee you'll feel better about it. I stole a red and pink one once.
I used to use Manic Panic red and it'd turn a really ugly pink within like a day. too..if i've just dyed i feel like if i don't put it up i'm doing a disservice!!!! glad to know it isn't just me! ..i thought that might have been my problem..i bleached, colored, and styled all in a few hours, so maybe the g2b and aqua net stripped it, or the wash to get the stand up products took the color too.... i've tried the dye in conditioner thing before, not sure it did much, but this time that won't work for me since i've got alternating colors. i'm to try once more to night to put color in. i won't put it until fri night or saturday so maybe i'll get a little more milage out of it.
When you put your hair up it takes alot of washing to get all the product out. The more shampoo and water come into contact with your freshly dyed hair the more the color is going to wash out. So bottom line is yes, putting your hair up makes the color come out faster.
I found blue in Clairol brand. The color can be mixed with either a permanent or demi permanent volume cream. I got it in the permanent cream, It turned out really dark like i wanted, but you can adjust how deep it is by how much color you mix with the cream. Now I'll have to do is see how permanent it is. They have the color in red and orange type colors as well as traditional colors.
Thanks for telling me about the Clairol stuff. I don't mind mixing my own stuff, I feel like a mad scientist. I visited idyemyhair or some place like that and read thru their forums on how people have dealt with making crazy color stick since most of the brands available are only semi perm. My man swears that fudge is the best stuff around, but it's TWENTY DOLLARS for a 2.5oz tube....drugs are cheaper than that!!!!! after all the reading i've done i think i may just ahve to accept that greens and turquoises in ANY BRAND are just not everything one would hope for. =(
Punky colors spring green and turquoise are wonderful :) they last months, smell amazing, and leave your feeling and looking great. I highly recommend them!
I had the turquoise and for some reason some of my hair would last and some of it would fade within weeks... but it faded to a "dead" looking green and I like that so it was okay with me. :D
It lasts great for me but I don't wash my hair often :p
ah,I wash mine very often. Maybe that's my problem
I usually wash my hair about 2 to 3 times a week depending on if I have my hair up or not lol.
The more you wash your hair the faster your color will wash out.. If your more concerned for your hairs health you should wash your hair about every other day unless you have very greasy hair.
