I dabble in this thread, but have a hair dye question that I haven't seen before.

So, this was my hair the evening after I colored it, 1/28:

(I'm making a shakey face!  Anybody else familiar with the phenomenon?  It's when you shake your face so your jaw wiggles freely and then somebody takes a picture.)

As of today, the dye has almost completely faded.  I bleached my hair, used Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink, heat set my hair, kept the dye in over night, rinsed with vineger, only showered every other day, only shampooed the top section of my hair that isn't dyed, and used a conditioner mixed with hair dye.  However, it still managed to fade in less than two weeks.  The last time I dyed my hair before this was with Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink without bleaching first, and it seriously faded out in days.

As we speak, I am sitting with Manic Panic Red Passion in my hair.  Does ANYBODY have suggestions of what else I can do to keep this dye in my hair?  I've read a lot about deep conditioners and such, but my hair is so oily that I have trouble using normal conditioners and use baby powder in my hair when I don't shower.  At this point, I'm just about to give up using Manic Panic and am willing to make the hour drive to Hot Topic to get some Special Effects hair dye.

I just saw Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, and I was so inspired by Clementine's blue color.  I would love to do something of the relatively same shade.

Buuut, I work at Egg Harbor Cafe.  Which as the name suggests serves breakfast/brunch/lunch, so it tends to attract the elderly.  They might not be so keen on seeing a blue-headed freak seating them down to their meal.

Any ideas?  I'd love the color, but I don't know if I could do it and keep my job/pull it off.

could you do the bottom half only and have it in a ponytail at work to "hide" it? I think the blue-haired old ladies may be surprisingly understanding of it  Grin

I'd definitely check with your dress code/supervisor before you do it.

I had pink hair, then purple hair, for three years while I worked in a library. I got a ton of compliments there, and nobody minded...also, at the time I shopped at a grocery store that was always full of elderlies... the old ladies always wanted to touch it!! weird, but ah, never a dull moment. It probably depends on the old person in question. I never had anyone say anything mean to me, but man, the looks some of them gave me!!

Don't use Manic Panic.  Use Special Effects.
