royal-acid asked: Hi :) Love your hair! I was just wondering, when you said that you mixed mostly Manic Panic's Electric Lizard with a small amount of their Voodoo Blue to get the 'glowy' effect on your hair, could you estimate the ratio of Electric Lizard to Voodoo Blue you used? Also, is it only 'glowy' in the sunlight or even in low-light? Thanks, cheers! :D
Thank you! I’d guesstimate that I used about 7 parts Electric Lizard to 1 part Voodoo Blue, but wasn’t doing any precise measuring. I just mixed it until I liked the color in the jar, which was like a slightly lighter Enchanted Forest. Unfortunately it does only get the glow effect in sunlight or UV light. In normal light/shade it’s a really pretty medium tone green - I think it’s prettier than MP’s Green Envy, lighter than Enchanted Forest but no where near as neon as Electric Lizard. That’s the best I can describe it, but hopefully it’s helpful enough!
mac-n-brie asked: Hi, I'm thinking of doing a green underlayer with my black hair, and I know I have to bleach it. I was thinking about getting Beyond The Zone's Limey Lizard and mixing that with Manic panic's Electric Lizard for the green i want, but I'm not exactly sure on how Beyond The Zone's hair coloring is. Is it any good? Also, I love your hair. I used to do my hair rainbow all of the time. <3
Thank you so much!
As far as my experience with Beyond The Zone, it hasn’t been great. I’ve used a couple of the blues, only to have them fade out extremely fast or not cover very well at all. This was probably around five years ago now though, so there is a chance they have improved their formula. I’d be curious to know how it works/worked out for you!
saraandhergreatperhaps asked: First off, I love your hair. I just wanted to know what your personal experience is in the difference between Hot Hot Pink and Cleo Rose. I'd like to do and ombre-effect from a violet color to purple to pink and I can't decide on a pink for it. I'll be using Rockabilly Blue and Purple Haze for the violet, and Purple Haze for the Purple, so I think the pink should be deeper, not like a majorly bright cotton candy type pink. Any suggestions?
Sorry for the slow response, I hope this isn’t too late!
Hot Hot Pink starts out really, really dark - almost red - in my hair. I actually don’t like the way it looks on me when it’s fresh, but after the first two or three washes it becomes one of my favorite dye colors.
Cleo Rose pretty much starts off at the color of Hot Hot Pink after it’s been washed a couple times. But aside from that, I don’t think there is much a difference. They both fade out relatively the same. Neither of the two are cotton candy pink, so either way I think it will look lovely!
countingassholes asked: Do you believe that anyone can pull of colorful hair? Do you got any tips? (I'll make my whole hair purple, it'll be the first time I color all of my hair)
I absolutely do believe anyone can pull off colorful hair, though I do think that certain skin tones and eye colors look better with some colors than others (and it varies from person to person).
Dying your entire head an unnatural color for the first time can be a slightly shocking experience. I would recommend gradually working your way into a full head of color, that way both you and everyone around will have an easier time adjusting to the new look.
You could start by adding some streaks, then gradually add more the next time you have to touch up the color. Or you could start with a dip-dye, then add more color up from the bottom. The other benefit of doing it this way is that you won’t be stuck with it if you don’t like it. :)
teenage-runaway216 asked: I bleahed my tips and then used plum purple by n rage my hair is already dark and it turned out really dark when i saw reviews people said it was light.. Any ideas on how i can get it to fade into a light purple?
The purples by ‘N Rage have always turned out dark on my hair, too. For a light purple, I recommend something more like Manic Panic Electric Amethyst or Lie Locks.
You can get it to lighten by doing some heavy shampooing - using dandruff shampoo (like Head and Shoulders) will be more effective at striping the color out. Just keep in mind that you’re essentially fading the color out, so it will lose that nice shine that comes with freshly dyed hair. Once it’s faded, I’d go over it with one of the two colors mentioned above to make it look more fresh.
Hope this is helpful, good luck!
