Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manic panic Absolutely horrible! I don't even want to give one star. It's not very bright, even on blonde hair. It washes out completely when you go to rinse the color out. I WILL NEVER BUY MANIC PANIC AGAIN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning color I ordered After Midnight and I love it. I didn't bleach my hair too white so the color on my hair is slightly turn to Teal, I like it btw. I just dyed my hair 2 weeks ago, the color is still pretty in my hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but doesn’t last long It’s a beautiful color but to maintain the vibrancy you have to wash your hair in cold water. Also, I don’t wash my hair frequently so I guess that’s also how i managed to maintain it for a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good choice Washed right out despite following instructions. Used it on uncolored hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its not as green as it seems Its not as green as they advertised it to be, the example photo is a beautiful deep green but upon looking at the jar in person I learned that its less of a deep rich green and more of a medium dark turquoise. Still a really cute color though! I used it on my hair anyways because I had no other dye and the color looked cute anyway and I'm very happy with the results, my hair had previously been a lighter & brighter shade of turquoise so I didn't mind it actually turning out a darker version of the same turquoise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very temporary While I loved the vibrancy and color immediately after coloring, this faded so fast and unevenly compared to other colors I’ve tried from them. I had an orange tone in some areas and red in the others. I let the color sit for 7 days after the initial rinse out and it still faded rapidly. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The instant cake mix of hair dyes This dye is like instant cake mix: Great on it's own, better with add-ons. It's very vibrant and has a half-life of 4-5 washes with purple shampoo and conditioner. It's not as cool of a shade as is shown in the tub. Add 1 part blue to 3 parts ultra violet to achieve the shade in the container. Adding a demi-permanent blue also makes it fade to periwinkle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enchanted Forest, more blue green I love Manic Panic, and have been a happy customer for years. My hair was lighted to maybe level 7/8. This (enchanted forest) came out more blue than I expected. Definitely green, but more of an aqua green than a forest green.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s not easy finding a green Color comes out more of a teal than a green on bleached hair

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good!! very vibrant but stains a lot. the red covered a lot of inconsistencies with the bleaching process, however, it takes a lot of lifting to get the color out of your hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Amazing product. It does start out as a blue but within a couple washes it because more green. The best part is it starts as a blue teal and slower just starts fading to lighter and lighter greens. It’s a great two for one deal because it doesn’t immediately start fading to a gross color. The forest green comes out first then it turns to a hunter green and then a pastel green. It’s perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Followed directions but no color remained Disappointed since I followed the directions. Color did not stay at all. We spent about an hour from beginning to end with no color remaining when rinsed. We tried this product because it is supposed to be less damaging and short term. Did not expect it to be nonexistent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not recommended Soo what I thought was a hunter green was teal, not only that is dyed my entire bathroom , my hands (and yes I was wearing gloves) , my entire neck . It wasn’t at all the best experience I’ve had with hair dye .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright for a short time The color is vibrant however it fades very quickly. Even with lots of care, the color faded from my ends very rapidly. If you’re looking for vibrant color, this product is fantastic but it doesn’t last for very long.
Date published: 2020-12-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little bleeding, great color. I was frustrated at first as I usually use Arctic fox and have no bleeding whatsoever and this bled while wet and dry until I washed it three times ish. However, I still have great color while my Arctic Fox color I put with it washed out immediately. I will definitely choose this over my norm Arctic fox now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Isn’t the same color that it looks A lot lighter than it looks. I guess I should’ve paid attention to the name, rather than the color when ordering. That’s on me though. Only complaint I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to its name This turned out to be a better color than I was expecting for my little lady dog. Her tail is now a delicate pink, just right for her pretty self. However, I would have liked a more vivid color, but it turned my dog's white hair a cotton candy pink, just like the name says.

I REALLY want a Coraline blue. A deep blue. Without green undertone, which blue from manic panic is best for rich royal blue. ALSO will mixing rockabilly with some  ultra violet get that? 

Asked by: AnnieJac
I use Joico Color intensity in Cobalt Blue to get the coralline color. It fades teal but holds well for a couple weeks at the cobalt color. After a few colorings it really sticks and fades way slower

Will 1 container do all of my hair?I have kinda thick hair and it’s to my shoulders 

Asked by: Christina38
Hi Christina! The amount of dye can vary on length, porosity, or density of the hair. We always recommend more than one for longer or thicker hair to ensure complete saturation of all strands. Any extra can be stored for touch ups or color refresh. For tips, tricks, and more questions please email our color experts: anytime.

can i mix this with 20 developer so it acts like a toner?

Asked by: alaitxuzii
Hi! Our dyes do not require a developer, Manic Panic is a semi-permanent direct dye that is ready to apply to hair right out of the jar. For a toner, we suggest trying Virgin Snow, it is a light violet toner that helps to neutralize unwanted pale yellow pigments. When applied to hair that has been pre-lightened to the necessary shade (very pale blonde level 9 or 10), the end result will be white hair. Contact us via email anytime for questions or help!

I have red hair and want to go dark green if I don’t bleach my hair will it still show up ?

Asked by: Samantha327
If it shows up it won’t be red. It will be very muddy. If your hair is already lightened under the red you could try a color remover first!!! Joico color eraser is the best. Color oops is not great and smells putrid so I would avoid that one personally. I’ve used both. Then maybe a very low volume bleach after some deep conditioning. So hard to guess without seeing the hair but yeah. Don’t just dump the green on the red. It’s not gonna pan out unless the red is completely gone! Good luck!

Does it stain yr scalp!? Any ideas on how to avoid if yes? Thanks!

It didn’t stain mine! But I put Vaseline around my hair line and the skin on my ears to avoid that kind of staining.

Is the virgin snow color close to the platinum hair color? Do I have to bleach my hair for it to work?

Asked by: Shun5631
Hi! Virgin Snow is not a white hair dye, it is a light violet toner that helps to neutralize unwanted pale yellow pigments. When applied to hair that has been pre-lightened to the necessary shade (very pale blonde level 9 or 10), the end result will be white hair. You can use Silver Stiletto, it is an icy lavender-tinted silver hair dye that creates pale, platinum hair by toning brassiness and depositing silver color. Hair must be pre-lightened to lightest level 10 blonde to see silver color for the end result.

I’m wanting to try the alien grey. I have balayaged hair. Very dark brown up top, and medium-lightish brassy blonde on bottom. Will it work on the medium blonde? 

Asked by: Hdiejxbdjdbx
Hi! For best results with Manic Panic hair color, we recommend pre-lightening your hair first to a pale white blonde. 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. An even and toned level 10 platinum white blonde is required for Alien Grey to work properly. For any additional questions and step by steps, please feel free to email our Color Experts at where we are available to help you 7 days a week!
