ughhh I bough the l'oreal colour ray in fushia flash at cvs last summer.

within three days my hair turned orangeishwhite.

I bought the same hair color for my locks and they turned a rasberry color that lighten to an orangiered.  For the redye I used manic panic pillbox red and Flaming red, l'oreal highlights in fushia. and clairol luminates in purple to make it a dark fushia.

My hair is normally dark brown with light brown tips by the sun.

I have dark brown hair that I dye with green kool aid and it doesnt involve bleaching. It's cheap, easy, and last 1 1/2 months.
Cheers.

How did it turn out?  Was it bright or could you only see it in the right lighting? I always thought kool aid dyes lasted a day or so, that is way awesome that it lasted a month!  How did you do it?  Sorry, you've got me curious.

And myself as well...  So even with your dark hair all you needed to do was dump kool-aid on your hair?  I thought those washed out really easily.  How did you get yours to stay?

Also, the only type of green dye Manic Panic has is Electric Lizard. DO NOT USE IT. Go get special effects or something. I've tryed Electric Lizard twice (thinking the first time was a human error), and both times, it wouldn't take to the hair. It just made it look a little bit more yellow than it already did with bleach.

electric lizard took to my friend's hair really well, but i don't have pictures right now to show you.  it was really bright green though, and looked awesome!

as for my hair however, it just made it look like puke. Undecided

Just wanted to throw in my two cents on blue/green hair.  When I did this...



...I had bleached my hair (something I've done a few times now, it's not nearly as damaging as you think!  Tongue), and then put blue Kook-aid on for about 7 hours.  I actually just covered my head in saran wrap and tinfoil, and went to bed.  When I got up, this was the result!  It stayed nice for about 2 weeks, and then I got restless and bleached it out and went to brown.  Now it's black.  Cheesy

I think keeping kool-aid on unbleached hair will render some (greenish) results (I actually tried a streak of it once), but you have to leave it on for a very long time, and don't expect it to look great for more than about a month (aka: you'll have to reapply, or dye it something "normal" again).

Happy dyeing!

Well, I only kept it for about two weeks, because I love changing color frequently; in general, I've heard anywhere from two weeks to two months on Kool-aid.  If it starts to fade, you can reapply, however, and (aside from the bleaching), it's not damaging.  When it starts to fade (depending on color), it can get kind of...scuzzy looking...so you have to be willing to reapply or do something different.

Hope that helps.

my thoughts on bleach: as long as you dont over do it its fine. when i bleached mine it didn't get dry at all and i bleached it to really light and it actually felt softer. hmm i dont know.

My hair is rainbow colored. I used Special FX Iguana Green for the green and a mixture of 2/3 Blue Mayhem and 1/3 Blue Velvet for the blue. Both the blue and green are still nearly the same color three months later (though I only wash it once a week). Blue Mayhem is a bright blue color, and Blue Velvet is a very dark blue -- the blue velvet pretty much took over even though I mixed them, so my blue is dark. I did that because my hair wasn't bleached properly, it was patchy orangey blonde, and I thought a lighter blue might turn green.

Here is a picture of my hair right after I dyed it. It's less bright indoors.


Now I have long brown roots. In the three months the purple has faded to a lighter purple, and the red, orange, and yellow side is now pretty icky. I really need to redo them. It's sort of blonde with a reddish part where the red used to be. I also cut it, now it's a bit longer than shoulder length.

I at least tried that with my bangs, on Halloween, but I couldn't find my green, so I ended with Pink & Red/Orange on one side, Blue & Purple on the other.
