Okay, so I want to dye my hair again, I haven't in a little while. I usually get Raw Color from Hot Topic, in a dark violet color. Unfortunatly, my local Hot Topic no longer carries Raw Color
I do have some Manic Panic in a similar color, but the one time I used it it didn't work at all. I was only trying to put in streaks, and when I tried to "comb until frothy" as the package indicated, all I managed to do was comb out most of the product and a little bit of my hair O_O then I left what was left in to process and rinse and it didn't color my hair at all.
So, since I hear that Manic Panic is somewhat widely-used, am I doing something wrong? What do you people do to make Manic Panic work, or could you recamend another brand of semi-permanent hair color (that comes in a violety-purple) that works well and I might easily find?
Just for the record, my hair is naturally blond and has proven itself to hold color really well in the past so the Manic Panic not working thing wasn't an issue with that.
