I know some people will love this topic. XD I have dyed my hair before. Once I got it done professionally, having the ends bleached and dyed red. However, it washed out in less than a month, leaving me with nasty, crispy blond ends. Recently, I bought a pot of Manic Panic Shocking Blue hair dye. This cream stuff is good! I place some on my ends, roll it up in foil, and place it in a plastic bag to wear on my head for the rest of the day. (I don't go out in public that day! ) When I washed it out after the absorption, my hair was much less crispy, leaving a gorgeous dark blue color on the ends. After the first wash, it lightens to a nice dark electric blue. Even after two months, it stayed in, fading to a nice green color. Recently, I reapplied it, and the two shades (faded green and fresh blue) have merged, making it look very dimensional. What do you guys do?
