I realllly need to stop using permenant colour, or at least give my hair a break. It grows so fast that it needs doing alot so I was thinking of Manic Panic. Would it be ok to mix together??...and how could I make a good copper colour thats not to orangey (I feel that electric lava would be!) I was thinking of electric lava combined with Vampire red (Am I correct in thinking that adding a little dye like Electric Lizard would tone the red down a tad and make it more browney-red??)

Its either that or its going black!
Mixture of 2c/3a curls, fine to med texture

:love5: PROTEIN LOVER!!! :love5:

Wishing my hair would be more like this

and less like this

    I have no idea if you can mix them or not. Is there anything on their website about it?

    If you do try it, let me know.

    You can mix them. Mix a green (electric lizard) and a red (pillarbox red is a good true red) to make a brown, you might need a touch of black (raven) to deepen the shade.

    When I did MP, I would clarify with a strong shampoo and then apply the MP to dry hair, wrap it in a shower cap and then a towel and sleep on it overnight for maximum penetration. MP is a demi-perm color that coats the hair shaft and does not penetrate the hair shaft (no developer is used) so the longer you have it sitting on your hair, the longer your results will last. HTH!

    ETA: punk.com has 30% off all hair color right now. I order my Special Effects color from them - their customer service is great!

    You can totally mix them! I mix a little red into my purple to counteract it going blue when it fades.

    Ooh, if the purple fades blue, does it then turn green? I was thinking of putting purple in my hair, but if it turns green, I do not want to.
