About a week ago, I decided I was tired of my natural brownish-blonde colored hair and set to work scheduling a bleaching appointment and ordering a bottle of Manic Panic's Amplified Formula in Ultra Violet. I'd been torn between dying it blue or purple, so I decided to try this as it has hints of both.
She actually did really well. She did a great job with the color, but the problem? I diluted the dye too much. I mixed it with a lot of conditioner, so instead of dying my hair, it just toned out all of the yellow. Then, we set to work dying it again, this time using conditioner of a different brand, and less of it. This should have done the job, but unfortunately we neglected to read the ingredient list on the conditioner bottle and found out too late that it contained parabens that not only wouldn't allow the color to take, but also removed what little color was deposited in the first go-around. After that, we applied the dye a third time, this time using it alone without any conditioner, and I finally got the perfect results.interviewed a couple of weeks ago.
My little brother insisted on being credited for his photography during the dying process. Thanks, Canaan!
