Today I want to talk to you about one of my favourite hair colour brands, the legendary Manic Panic.
I have used many of their colours personally and professionally and I always swear by their AMPLIFIED and classic formulas. They have such an array of colours and they are all mixable and fully customizable. Manic Panic are cruelty free and are highly conditioning and don’t damage the hair.
I love using the darkest, AMPLIFIED colours on my unbleached hair. They add a lovely condition and undertone to the hair without stripping or changing your natural colour. I have used and loved the AMPLIFIED version of the legendary Vampire Red for years and swear by it. So I thought I would give the equally popular Purple Haze a try.
The first thing I noticed was the formula is not as richly pigmented as Vampire Red. I also experienced slightly more bleeding with this colour.
I apply the colour to slightly damp hair (just washed, NOT conditioned) and then cover in cling wrap. I leave it on my hair for anything between two to six hours, applying head occasionally.
It left my hair feeling really nice. It also added a lovely purple hue to my unprocessed hair. I did find this colour didn’t give as drastic of a colour change as Vampire Red, however red is naturally found in the hair so red pigments will always be more visible.
I do really like this dye a lot. It isn’t my favourite from Manic Panic, however it does look STUNNING on bleached hair.
