lisastarrfish asked: What kind of bleach do you recommend for black/dark hair? And you are gorgeous haha :))
Thank you so much! <3
For dark hair, I’d suggest using a 40 volume developer with your bleach… I like Ion’s Sensitive Scalp Developer with their Conditioning Powder Lightener. All bleach will do a bit of damage, but I’ve found that the “conditioning” aspect really helps keep it feeling and looking healthy right after the bleaching. And the developer doesn’t burn quite as much as a regular developer when it (inevitably) gets on your scalp/skin.
keepstillnessinsideofyou asked: quick question about Manic Panic and pubic hair. Is it a go or a no go?
Presuming this is not a prank question… I don’t have any personal experience to speak from. I know others that have successfully dyed their carpets with Manic Panic, though I doubt Manic Panic would suggest or recommend doing so themselves.
Also, probably pointless if you don’t have a light carpet. Getting bleach on it would suck.
waitingforahero asked: Wow your hair is amazing! I'm looking at dying my hair with manic panic for the first time. I have long hair (like yours) and I would like to go a light shade of purple as I have fair skin so don't want to go dark. I really don't want to bleach my hair first though. I have light strawberry blonde hair that has natural darker and lighter highlights. Which colour would you recommend? Thanks :)
My first instinct was to suggest Manic Panic’s Purple Haze if you’re going over natural hair, as it has great coverage, even over yellow/orange tones, but it’s definitely not a light purple. And, unfortunately, I don’t know of any light purple that will effectively cover hair that hasn’t been bleached first.
sarcasmkilledthemind asked: Hey! From your experience, what colours fade out the nicest? Which colours don't fade out to a nice colour? Thanks, love your hair!
Purples fade the best on my hair, as they seem to neutralize any old colors and turn my hair into a really even, pale blonde.
Warmer colors also fade nicely for me, because I have somewhat brassy tones left in my hair after I bleach. On the other hand, when blues and greens fade, they turn into what I call “swamp puddle hair” - so you can just assume how that looks!
misshorror96 asked: You are officially the manic panic goddess :3 Your hair is fabulous and my goal now is to achieve your hair dyeing skill level lol
Haha! Thank you so much, that is very flattering to hear! <3
eyeslikeblueroses asked: Is the straightening balm you use only sold online or are there stores that carry it?
I usually buy it at Sally’s beauty supply store. I’ve looked for it at Walmart and drug stores, but haven’t had luck finding it in either of those places.
