Manic Panic Deep Purple Dream over unbleached dark hairby DovesplashPosted 3 years, 5 months ago
The title says it all haha; This is my result of using Manic Panic Deep Purple Dream over my dark brown, unbleached hair (which had faded Ion brights purple in it) Thanks to everyone who recommended techniques and products on my previous topic.
I left this one for about three hours before I rinsed. I applied heat for maybe 10 minutes after I put it on to try and get it to hold better. This is two washes in. The color is very subtle but I consider it a greater success than my ventures with Splat (faded way too fast) and Ion (which I don't think was pigmented enough to cover my dark hair, but otherwise left my hair feeling very conditioned). In the right lighting it can shine quite bright, but otherwise my hair usually looks black. Subtle, but not so subtle that people don't notice.
Deep Purple Dream seems to be blue based; on my skin it turned blue (but did wash off with shampoo and soap). On my hair I think it's a pretty true purple, but that might be because my brown hair has warmer tones that balance the blues (I think).

It's a great subtle mix with your natural shade. It love that it varies a little in the light.

Aw thank you! Without bleaching it's very subtle, it often looks black, but it faces so gracefully back to my natural shade (or at least I think so, it doesn't have anywhere to go but back to dark brown). I might work up the courage to try bleaching some part of my hair sometime and attempt a bright color but for now I'll probably be sticking with this haha.
