Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays Vivid I dyed my hair with this a bit over a month and a half ago and I decided I needed to leave a review because I am so impressed! I've had blue hair for three and a half years now, and I began doing it at home after the pandemic began. None of the dyes I've had done professionally done OR the ones I've used at home have stayed this vibrant and beautiful for this long before! I tend to only dye my hair every 4 to 6 months since my natural roots compliment blue so well, so I'm very familiar with the fading process. My hair has barely faded and it's not pulling anywhere near as green as some of my previous dyes have. I'm seriously impressed and will definitely be repurchasing when I redye it next time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the color I am new to dying my hair and although some of the dye did stain my skin during the dying process I really love it overall. I liked the color quality. It was pretty close to what the box advises. Dye is washing out as described as well. Overall I'm satisfied and I'll probably try some different colors by Manic Panic.

I use Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Coverage's Deep Medium Natural Brown to cover very resistant white hair. I want either some blue streaks, OR I want to do blue on top of the brown. Will After Midnight work? Would I use it the day after coloring brown?

Asked by: Jackie999
Hi Jackie! In order to achieve swatch results and a vibrant shade you apply the color to a clean blonde base. We can not guarantee the results you would receive putting this color onto dyed brown hair. For best results with Manic Panic hair color, we recommend pre-lightening your hair first to a pale blonde-level 9 or higher. This will not only help the color show up as vibrantly as it should, but it will also help hold the color in your hair properly. We would love to help you with the proper steps for this color! Please contact our color experts via email: anytime.

I have red hair, kind of magenta/Auburn. I don't want to bleach my hair so I'm wondering what color I'd end up with using manic panic after midnight.

Asked by: Muppet Lady
Hi! We can not guarantee what color your hair will be if putting After Midnight on top of previously dyed magenta/auburn hair. In order to achieve swatch results and a vibrant shade you apply the color to a clean blonde base. You can use a clarifying shampoo to gradually remove the color if you do not wish to bleach the hair. Results vary from person to person because everyone's hair is different, so regardless if you decide to bleach or not, we always recommend doing a strand test to see how the shade will show up on your hair. For more questions,comments, or tips please email a picture of your hair to

My hair is lightened & roots growing in mostly natural gray -- I want very temporary color for COVID, don't want to have baby blue hair if we go back to work. W this eventuall all wash out, or will it stay/fade in my lightened hair

Asked by: OldLadyonABike
Hi! The longevity of our dyes depends on a number of factors, such as the condition of your hair, the base color, and the shade itself. Color also may not last as long in natural or virgin hair as it would in hair that's been lightened to a level 10 white blonde. Our classic semi permanent dyes fade gradually over 6 weeks. Some shades are very pigmented and vibrant, so for some people, it lasts longer in the hair and can stain overprocessed hair. Everyone's hair is different, so before applying all over, we recommend doing a test strip to see how well the color takes to your hair. If you need any extra help please feel free to contact our color experts via email anytime!

My hair right now is a teal/green/blue . I am wanting to go midnight dark blue .. would this do the trick? 

Asked by: Rachlanae
Hi! We always recommend doing a strand test to see how the shade will show up on hair before applying all over. Before applying Manic Panic, prepare the hair with clarifying shampoo, do not condition, and blow dry hair completely. This process will make sure the cuticle is open, dirt/oils are removed, and the hair is porous. For tips, tricks, and more questions please email our color experts:

Will this work on dark hair? Will the blue show up?

Asked by: Trublu24
Any darker shade of Manic Panic will give subtle results to darker levels of hair. The results will be subtle and most likely go unnoticed unless you are in direct light. Results and color longevity may vary depending on hair's natural porosity and natural color. For more questions or tips, please contact our color experts via email:

What happens if it is mixed with 1 oz of developer 20? I mixed a small amount 1 oz or so before seeing that you weren't suppose to add develop. Is my hair going to be permanently damaged?

Asked by: Carol4892
Thank you for contacting Manic Panic! Using developer in Manic Panic hair color would not cause any damage to your hair if you accidentally mixed the two but it can dilute the color causing the results to vary. Manic Panic® hair colors are 100% vegan, cruelty-free semi-permanent direct dyes fortified with conditioners that add moisture to the hair and act as a filler for pre-lightened hair. Our unique formula contains no harmful chemicals, is gentle to the hair, and contains no animal by-products.

I'm trying to see how this would look on my hair what would the color code be? RGB or CYMK is fine but Hex is preferred.
