All I have left is a bit of the second tube since I mixed it in with my conditioner which was great but then I would run out when I would have to recolor again. So, I renewed my membership with Sally's for 5 bucks for the year and I got a 50% off coupon and used it to buy my first jar of Manic Panic in Cotton Candy Pink without knowing if it would work or not. To my surprise, this dye worked great and I did not dilute it to make it pastel. I used it straight from the little tub it came in, saturated my whole head and the color took instantly, even most of my white hair in the front which was cool because that part is not bleached.
I left on the dye for 3 hours and rinsed it off with cool water and voila the shade of pink was vivid and beautiful and more cool pinky toned than the Pravana, which gave me a more lilac mauvey pink hue.
This dye did not make a mess, stain my pillowcase or clothing maybe because it was a lighter shade from the collection. It is also very pigmented but now I have to test it to see how long it will last on my highlighted locks.
In my previous post, I mentioned some tips that I use to keep the color from fading so hopefully it will work with this color as well.
I'm really excited with this new hair change. I'm having fun at 42!
Here are my before and after pictures using the manic panic in Cotton Candy Pink.
