Manic panic shocking blue question!!Posted 4 days, 9 hours ago
Hiii everyone! I recently dyed my hair for the first time. I used manic panic shocking blue and it dyed my hair two different colors. Aqua and dark blue. And I have two questions : 1. Will the color fade green or purple ? Also, should I redye the Aqua colors again so it can fade equally? Any advice or info will help. I eventually wanted to get like a purple with blue undertones .

It looks like some of the areas didn't get as much coverage or maybe just had a slightly darker base or were not as porous. You can touch those areas up again, though it may or may not help if it's a porosity issue. My memory of Shocking Blue is that it fades purple, but Manic Panic has done some formula changes in the past, so I'm not sure. Either way, it's not too difficult to get it to purple afterwards as long is you're not looking for a pastel, since a violet dye will cover either way.

Thank you so much for your insight. The hairstylist bleached my hair wrong so my bangs were bleached darker than the rest of my hair which is why that part is aqua looking. I’ll retouch those with my hair dye and hopefully it’ll fade out evenly. But I appreciate your advice and comment!!!

Ah, you might need a bit more of a pinky purple for that if you go straight over a blue base. That said, it's pretty easy to adjust the tone of purple, so there's no harm in trying what you have on hand first.

Awesome! Thank you so much. You’ve been the most helpful and I greatly appreciate that. Have a wonderful day ?✨ also, I redid the whole blue and finally got it to a even dark blue shade all around!! ?
