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'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.

I haven't posted in a while..
pd8151 that red looks awesome on you.  Grin
went from reddish -> double bleaching -> pink  -> luscious mango Wink. all in one week.
I wanted to keep the pink. but I work at shoprite, and they wouldn't have been happy with me.
the mango was really vibrant. but faded quickly. more pictures.

I LOVE THIS SHADE! how did you do it what products its beautiful!

hehe Danke. its Garnier Nutrisse. Luscious mango. {I love saying that ^_^.} my new favorite color .
I want to redye it, but the boyfriend wont let me.. he likes hair, and he's afraid mine will fall out. haha.

  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.

Another hair update. I dyed my hair again yesterday, it's redder now. I tried some highlighting kit too but I messed up somehow and the highlights don't show at ALL. Except in like one place. So I'll be redoing that bit later.
This pic is weirdly yellow! but it shows the cut well.

This one is more true to color. But my hair is flipping weird.

My hair backbrushed and put up:

My hair just backbrushed, but a little deflated after a gig:

My hair just normal, for once:
