CherryBomb, that is gorgeous!!  The cut and color both really suit you, it's a great combo.  I love the intensity of that blue. 

Do the Beyond the Zone colors hold up well for you?  I had a bad experience with a pink shade that washed out really quickly..

What brands do you all recommend?  I have always used Manic Panic, which I have always loved.  I had several years of boring hair and now I am back to it, and it doesn't seem to last OR get the vibrancy it used to.  I have blonde hair and have done it both with and without bleaching first, neither to any avail.  I usually leave it on for an hour or two, use heat and still have issues.  Any ideas?!  Sad

kiki870- I have always used special effects brand, and it works wonders for me.  I usually bleach out my hair first,wait a day then wash it with dish soap (gross, i know, but it takes EVERYTHING out of your hair so the colour really sticks...It's probably not very good for it...but it doesn't seem to damage it either...your call) directly before colouring.  I leave the colour on for hours, since it's non-damaging (that specific brand...can't speak for others), then rinse the colour out and just condition it. oh, and wait at least 24 hours before washing it again.  The only bad thing about special effects brand is that you have to buy it online Sad http://amphigory.com/special_effects_hairdye.html that site has the best product photos, but there are cheaper places online to buy it probably.  hope this helps!!! 
ps, i have crazy absorbent hair, and manic panic was crap for me too.  didn't stay for more than two days.  it's the brand, not you!! Smiley

Sorry about the big pics lol

I cut my hair really short because it was so damaged, but I don't like my hair short, so I went out and found 18 inch, 100% human hair extensions at sally's. They were on sale for $50. They were really blonde, so I colored them two different shades of red:


The darker red wasn't working well with my real hair, so I went dark on top, but kept the brighter red, and I threw in two blonde pieces:

Thanks for the tip!  I think I will give it one last go with the Manic Panic, since I have a stash, but try the dish soap thing.  I have heard that Dawn is a good one for hair anyway.  Buying online is all I do anyway since the nearest place for me to get funky dye is almost an hour away!!  Manic Panic is vegan so it won't hurt to leave it on for hours.

I can't believe I just went through 174 pages of this at once.

On the flip-side, I now have lots of ideas!

this is me back in March...I bleached the heck out of my bangs, then used Manic Panic Vampire red...an old fave. I just dyed all my hair back to brown for my sister's wedding in Oct. Red would have clashed with seafoam green and coral. But I have been looking for seafoam green hair dye. Thinking of mixing turquoise and another color together. Or just buying dyed extensions.

I went to the hairdressers this afternoon and got massacred. Looking at the awesome jobs you've all done I'm thinking DIY all the way is just the best option. Bordel!  Cry
