Going Pastel Pink. Toner?by Mrs_LoonyPosted 7 months, 1 week ago
Should I tone my hair before adding in my Manic Panic Cotton Candy dye? I feel like adding blue/purple tones to my hair would be counter productive. But it's still yellowy.
And opinions on the dye process? Should I dilute the color or leave it as is? I've swatched straight color and it looks good to me. But I've got some thick hair. I only have one jar and would hate to run out. I do have Arctic Fox Electric Paradise as an emergency back up. But id rather not mix brands.

I think thicker hair that's past shoulder length might have some trouble with just one jar, but I'm not sure if the colour is strong enough to stretch that far with just conditioner. I don't think you necessarily need toning, though I don't think it would hurt to add a very tiny amount of purple into your mix to tone it a little. When I used Cotton Candy Pink for the first tome is was a pretty weak pastel, but I feel like Manic Panic has made most of their dyes at least a little more pigmented since then.

So I did dye my hair this morning. One jar was not enough even slightly diluted. I ended up using some heavily diluted hot hot pink also. So it's a bit brighter then I intended but overall I'm happy with it.
