i feel your pain!  but i don't know if Special Effects will fix your promblem.  i dyed my hair with Special Effects wildflower about a week before you did yours, and it's totally gone too.  the *wow purple!* was gone after about a week, and then it was this dull gray purple.  i did the same bleach/let sit for hours/heat set/only wash every other day with a color-safe shampoo, and yeah.  i also have the same problem with terribly oily hair.  maybe that keeps it from sticking?
thank god it's not just me.  i was starting to think i'm just awful at dying.

here's my hair this morning.  five bucks says it's gone in a week.  :/




The layers look kind of stupid in that picture.  My bangs look much better than that.

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.



I believe the issue would lie moreso in the opinions of your supervisor than the elderly folks. I work at Joann Fabrics and I got hired with Nuclear Red hair.. went through every other shade of the rainbow since I've been there and they don't say anything. (I'm thinking perhaps because their motto is "experience the creativity" so that would be pretty hypocritical.) But anyway. I deviate. There are really very few elderly customers who comment negatively on my hair. I've had about a bajillion old ladies tell me "my granddaughter has hair just like yours! It's so pretty and creative!"
(It's when they try to touch it that you've gotta look out. haha.) But if your supervisor/boss person doesn't want you going all-out blue you could do an under-layer dealy so that a ponytail would show the color off and leaving your hair down would cover it up for the most part. That's pretty much the only hideable way to do blue. at least that i can think of  Undecided Sowwy and good luck!


PS: Eternal sunshine is totally the reason I started dying my hair too! haha i forgot that's the reason I wanted to reply to you. I love that movie. OH and also if you're going in the blue direction I'd reccommend Special Effects Blue mayhem. From my experience it's the most vibrant blue around and it lasts the longest and best. It also will fade to purpleish. Not greenish yuck. (like Blue Haired Freak and most manic panic blues) and it won't start out innnncredddibly DARK like Blue Velvet (which is also pretty much impossible to get rid of too)

give me your eyes, i need sunshine.
your blood, your bones, your voice, and your ghost.

we've both been very brave.
walk around with both legs,
fight the scary day.
we both pull the tricks out of our sleeves.

but I'll believe in anything
and you'll believe in anything.

i'm glad to know i'm not alone either.  i suppose we could look at the bright side and experiment with colors and patterns a lot.  i'm thinking of bleaching all my hair (it was just the underlayers, like yours, before), buying a bunch of different colors, and having fun with it.

  Does ANYBODY have suggestions of what else I can do to keep this dye in my hair? 

Don't use Manic Panic.  Use Special Effects.

here's what i used to do, for ~3 week pink & purple w/Special Effects.

Make sure you've bleached the heck out of your hair, or no dye is going to stick very long.
Make sure you're using enough dye to cover all of the hair you want dyed. Leave it in overnight, put a plastic bag on your head & use crappy sheets that night. Rinse out, don't shampoo. This will take a while.
Get some baby shampoo. Put some apple cider vinegar in it (or any vinegar, apple cider just smells a teeny bit better)
Wash every other day, or less, if you don't mind it.
DON'T use conditioner, except after you bleached it.

also, I'm in southern california, and it's always really sunny, so I wore a hood or a bandana outside to keep it from fading.

ah, nostalgia.
