I use and have used Manic Panic for the last 12 months - I am a huge follower of this product & often get stopped everywhere I go asking for advice and gaining compliments on my Rainbow array of hair. I take super good care of my rainbows, I only have to touch up my colours once every 4-6 weeks. I do use the amplified formula over the classic formula so have less colour options but they are amazing colours and I have used many other brands on the market and NOTHING has stood up as well as Manic Panic :-)

I love dying my hair assorted bright colours from blue to pink red and everywhere in between, and when I found a local shop stocked Manic Panic I was right in there buying their Atomic Turquoise. I started with bleached hair and put the colour in not expecting much of a change due to having used bad semis in the past. I slept with it in and in the morning when I washed it out I couldn't believe the colour, it was the most incredible light and bright blue. Even after a few washes the colour stayed. I have also used their purple and pink dyes and have always been impressed. No itchy or damaged scalp, no patchiness, and no dull colours. Thoroughly impressed. Currently have Purple Haze fading in my hair, started off really bright but still looks incredible as it fades to a lilac shade, still getting compliments :)
Tips: Always start with bone-dry hair and leave the dye in overnight for maximum colour. If you are looking to make your hair the brightest it can be, only use the dye on white hair no matter how long the bleaching process is. Don't wash your hair with any shampoo or conditioner for the first week to help the colour really soak in and stay for the longest possible time.
I currently have the blue one in my hair I left it in over night and it has lasted aggges I keep getting compliments on my hair this lasts longer then paintbox. I like that the product is organic and used by snooki. The fading has been slower when used with a colour care shampoo.with a lower laurel sulphate. (this makes the shampoo lather) It will fade out faster with regular or anti dandruff shampoo but I think this has great staying power as long as you leave it in for several hours rather then the 30minutes which is the minmum time. I have only used one colour and I used it on the ends and mid lengths of my hair. I still have more then 3quarters of a tub left so I think it is value for money. I even put some on my sister hair hers washed out faster though as hers was light brown and dark blonde but there is still a little in her hair and its been about a month! I keep getting compliments I got mine on special from a facebook sale for $20 I used the dark blue and it has now faded to a nice light blue I do not think it damaged my hair as my hair was already damaged.
These bright, fun colours work best on blonde hair, and really hold well. They set the bar for great bright hair dyes, however I do find it hard to justify the price when you can get Paintbox which works just as well, for half the price. If the price doesn't bother you, however, Manic Panic has a great range of colours and really looks fantastic and lasts a great amount of time.
Tips: If you don't want to spend the extra cash on a Pastel-izer, mix the colour with a white conditioner and it has the same effect - it makes the dye a gorgeous pastel colour and you save a huge amount of money.
The colour faded out to quickly even when dying blonde hair, probably not worth the price if its not going to stay in long at all. Other than that the colours are true and vibrant and do look very good when dyed over blonde.
I used this in pink, and it lasted quite well (about a month). The color didn't stain the sink/bathtub quickly so it's really easy to apply, and it didn't stain my towel either. It's definitely a good product to try colors before getting it done more permanently! That said, if you're looking for a color that's lighter than the colors available and don't want to try mix conditioner in it, it'll be easier to just go to a salon.
I have only used this brand for dying my hair purple what I found was that my hair didn't take the dye too well if I added too much conditioner however, if I added it straight to my hair it took colour really well it even took a little of the brassy tones out of my hair. I also found that it washed out really easily :( I will try it again if possible
Tips: Wash your hair with cold water and minimise the shampoo
This is okay. I used it to get pink hair and it worked out. I went from dark brown (almost black) to blonde by bleaching and then used Manic Panic, it worked out it and I loved it but it didn't last long as you would expect but I found it lasted even less than I though. It is very hard to keep the colour strong and after a few washes the colour was quickly fading.
I have tried Hot Hot Pink and Rock'n'Roll Red.
The red was a very nice colour, I easily got a full, even coverage, I didn't have to completely whiten my hair to get a great result. The colour faded very quickly though, even when I washed my hair in cold water. I was watching the red race down the drain. Rock'n'Roll Red only lasted a few washes for me.
Hot Hot Pink, boy was it hot. Defiantly a bright colour! This also applied evenly, and was such a bright vibrant colour. It had very good lasting power, I got a couple of weeks out of this before it started fading. I have also tried using this as a pastel colour by dulling it down with conditioner before applying it, my hair wasn't white blonde so this didn't work out too well. My hair has a few stains of pink left in it, which I am really struggling to get out.
Overall, this is an okay product. Not sure if I will purchase again, as I have heard better things about many other products.
Tips: If you want the colour to last longer, mix some manic panic with your conditioner, so every time you shower you add a little bit more colour back.
Tried these to see if they were better than La Riche but the Manic Panic didn't last anywhere near as long as my La Riche colours. I got La Riche: Turquoise, Violet & Flamingo Pink... and Manic Panic: Enchanted Forest, Ultra Violet & Hot Hot Pink. I don't know whether it was these colours alone, but in my hair, they didn't last long at all - a couple of weeks before they faded to ugly... where as my La Riche ones lasted around 4 weeks!
