For best results, particularly with lighter shades, apply to hair that has been pre-lightened to pale blond. Apply to freshly washed (not conditioned), dry or damp hair. Apply using latex gloves. We recommend using a tinting brush to ensure even coverage. Work the dye into the hair for a few minutes and leave for at least 15 minutes (you may leave this dye on for longer as long as you cover your hair with plastic wrap or a shower cap to prevent it drying out). Rinse with warm water until the water runs clear.

For longer lasting colour, use a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair.

  • Precautions

    Although these dyes do not contain the harsh chemicals of other dyes such as ammonia and peroxide, there is still a small chance that they could cause an allergic reaction. For this reason it is imperative that you do a strand and sensitivity test before using them. An ingredients list is available above and can also be found on the product’s packaging (ingredients list can sometimes be found under our sticker). NEVER use any of these products on eyelashes or eyebrows.

    As you would expect from a dye these colours can stain textiles, ceramic, wood and other surfaces as well as temporarily stain skin and nails so be careful to cover surfaces and wear gloves when applying the colour. Once used these products may also rub off your hair and skin and onto clothing and bedding. Although this usually disappears after washing it’s worth bearing this in mind. Staining to bathtubs, basins and showers can easily be cleaned using a bleach based cleaning product.

    Do not mix with peroxide.

    Colours may cause permanent staining to bleached or chemically treated hair. Tip: You can avoid staining on your skin by applying a layer of vaseline anywhere on your skin where dye may come in contact.

Reviews of Special Effects Blue Haired Freak

  • I havent used this on bleached hair yet. When used on unbleached but dirty-blonde hair turned out to be more of a cobalt blue that was still nice but not what I was looking for exactly. I suppose I will have to try it on bleached hair to fully experience the actual color.
  • I love this color. It's my "perfect blue". The only problems I have with it are that it fades within 2-3 weeks and I hate the color it turns to when it fades.
  • Lovely light-mdeium, kinda sky-blue colour, but fades pretty quickly. And if your hair isn't quite toned enough, it takes on those yellow tones and can turn kinda muddy green as it fades.
  • Definitely a good mid blue! Have used this very happily a few times and no problems with application, fading or staining. Would recommend :-)
  • Love this color. It is not a soft blue at all, but it is not an electric blue either. I describe it as a sapphire blue, it has a nice deep tone and depth to it and it is very regal. The product itself is very conditioning and almost never stains or bleeds for me. It does require a regular recoloring schedule if you want it to stay at that deep blue.
  • I love this dye - it's not a pastel it's quite an electric cobalt, yet the pigmentation of deep purple, blue velvet, atomic pink is not there w this meaning NO staining! Also that it won't last forever ... Which could be good or bad. I found this in strand tests to even be less pigmented than bad boy blue mp. I love it.... it's nice to take the guesswork out of diluting and mixing sometimes. Used neat, an entire half the bottle covered my medium shade turquoise pixie to a wonderful medium bright true blue. Electric! This is a weaker dye so sleeping in it and taking the usual precautions is a good idea. Purple based blue.
