Okay so I've dyed my hair pretty much every color except pink, and I've tried various brands and usually  they wash out too soon or fade or something. (I have a hawk.) I want to bleach it and dye it HOT pink. I really don't have enough money to dye it every two weeks. I guess I'd be okay with redyeing every month, but I'd like it to last longer and also, bleaching REALLY damages my hair (I have naturally black hair) and I don't want to have to keep re-bleaching it either.
I don't care about my roots growing in, my hair grows pretty fast.
Can anyone reccomend a brand that stays vibrant for a while based on personal experience (either you or a friend)?


thanks!

is there anyway you would be able to get professional color? framesi has a color pure pink that works amazing. i did it for a cpl months. its a neon-ish bright pink. similar to a highlighter marker. another brand is matrix SoRed. ive used a few shades from their line. they have one that is called red violet or something similar to that. it came out magenta like pink with using a 40 volume. the matrix brand is nice because you don't have to pre-bleach and it come out super bright and vibrant. as for non-professional brands i guess i would say special effects. their color last a long time and also very vibrant. any more questions feel free to ask. hope i helped.

I wish I could but I don't know any stylists. they should let people dye their hair any brand w/out being a stylists. dummies.
i'll try special effects but i have no credit card so if they don't have it here i'll have to use something else. thanks for the reply tho.

There is a Sally Beauty Supply by Best Buy.  You can get some shades of Manic Panic there, and maybe some other brands.  If your hair is short, you won't need a whole jar each time, so it needn't be that expensive.  You may be able to get 3 or 4 colorings out of each jar or bottle. 

You will need to bleach it the first time, but each subsequent time you won't need to.  The pink will wash out a bit each time and lighten, so you just have to go over it with more pink when you are ready.  Of course, until your roots get too long to look good, then you will need to bleach them, but you should be able to just bleach the dark part, it just takes a little practice.

I like Manic Panic (in the jar).  I find that the reds tend to turn hot pink, so I personally go for them when I want pink, rather than the ones with "pink" in the title, because they seem to get lighter faster.  Another reason to go with it is that it is easy to find!

As far as roots, pink hair looks better with dark roots anyway.

A long long long time ago I died my hair pink pretty often.  That was the last color of the rainbow that I went for before giving it up.  It was a pretty vibrant magenta, and I hate to say it but to keep it vibrant I just had to re-apply a lot.  I just used one of the creamy dyes that comes in the little plastic pot (can't remember the brand).  I'd bleach my roots first (bleach all of your hair the very first time), not all the way but until it was a light coppery color - then let it dry and put in the pink dye.  Then I'd let it set as long as possible, sometimes until it started to dry. 

From your icon it looks like your hair is pretty short, mine was short at the time so I could usually get 3 or 4 applications out of one little tub of dye.

My hair is pink right now (and its past the shoulders). My hair is naturally a medium brown but it was dyed black so I had to bleach the hell out of it first. I used manic panic Hot Hot Pink, I've had it for almost 3 weeks (maybe more) and only did a touch up on the roots once. The colour stayed in so well. My personal experience with manic panic (especially the greens and blues) is that it fades really quickly, but not this pink. Its actually very impressive! My friend says that Pink Flamingo by Fudge Paintbox is good too.

I have dyed my hair many times, and many different colors. Hands down the BEST dye ever is Special Effects (I got it here http://www.amphigory.com/special_effects_hairdye.html )

It is bright, lasts forever, and looks really nice as it fades even

I don't have any very good pictures of it when it was new, but this is how bright Atomic Pink was after a few weeks (on bleached hair, of course).

If you don't feel like ordering that stuff in particular, a good rule to stick to is alocohol based dyes. They might say on the front, if not just check the ingredients and one of the first ones listed should be some type of alcohol... if not it's probably water based and not as good.

I disagree. Hair color brands are run by hairstylists -- and trust me, we stick together, and we look out for each other. Additionally, professional hair color like Framesi and Matrix are a little more complex than your box color from the drug store. The methods of application are a little more complicated than slopping it on your head with the incorrect volume of developer and hoping for the best. The brands are luxury -- you dont see Louis Vuitton sold at K-Mart.

At any rate, non-professional color wise, you want to use Special Effects Atomic Pink for thel longest lasting pink. I use it on any client that wants long-last vibrant pink and they've never complained. However, beware -- its very difficult to bleach out of the hair.

mines a very vibrant pink at the mo, its naturally blonde, i tend to bleach it all up every 3 months, then it only really needs the colour topping up every month or less

i want it a soft baby pink next, ironically this pink lasts so flipping long i will be a pensioner before its ready to go lighter! (yes yes, i know, i am almost there already...)
