  • I believe manic panic is referred to as "demi permanent". I do not think that you can get permanent in a color like hot pink. Special Effects (don't remember if they spell it funny....) is supposed to be the best. If your hair is bleached the color should adhere better, also I would try to go as long as you can without washing.  There are shining glosses you can get at beauty suppply stores that are meant to help amplify the color. I used to add a little bit of the dye (I used manic panic because I couldn't ever find special effects) to my conditioner while I was in the shower to "refresh" the color with doing the whole thing over again.

  • For some reason, even the permanent dyes don't last long in the "hot" colors. You could try a beauty supply store for the better quality stuff, but I still think you're going to end up coloring a lot and the permanent might be more damaging to your hair.

  • There are a lot of tips on the manic panic web site that help with keeping the color. MP is also all natural and wont damage the hair. HOWEVER my personal, hair fall out story, do NOT use their lightening bleach. It mademy hair fall out....seriously. I do a lot to my hair and always have, bt that bleach killed it, lol.
    Have fun!!!
