FAQ: Will Manic Panic Hair Coloring Fade?

I colored my hair with a red Manic Panic hair coloring. Will it fade? I would like to color my hair with a different shade.

Some of these dyes fade very slowly. Especially very intense shades take really long time. And if you decide to color it with a different shade (ie. blue shade over the red), you may end up with a hue that has underlying tone - ie.  blue over read may produce a "purplish" blue shade. To overcome it you may first employ a skilled colorist, who will try to remove as much previous color as possible, so you may end up with that sapphire color you were dreaming about.
