Manic Panic Shocking Blue?by Mrs_LoonyPosted 8 months, 2 weeks ago
I bought a jar of Shocking Blue by MP but I opened it and it's so so purple. Is this how it's supposed to look? I'm not looking for purple hair right now so I'm kind of terrified to plop it on.

I have never used shocking blue so you might want to wait for the opinion of someone who has but I had a bunch of blue velvet spill in my cabinet recently (tragic) and no gloves so I clean it up anyway. Blue velvet is a very dark blue, and comes out blue on my hair but stained my hands purple for 2 days. I have also used a couple other blues that tend to look a little purple in the bottle. It's not uncommon for a blue to resemble purple before applied to hair. Again tho maybe wait for someone w first hand experience.

Okay thank you! I'm not planning on using it for at least another month so I guess I have until then to find someone who has used it. All the google images I found are a nice bright blue.

That's pretty much what I remember it looking like. It's a slightly more muted colour, but it is a bit deep. Sort of between a colbalt blue and a navy.

Shocking blue is a dark blue. Used this three times at least. On my white hair always ended with a dark blue.
Specail Effects Blue Mayhem to me is more purple than blue.
