Dying Without Pre-lightening

Itís perfectly possible to love and enjoy Manic Panic Hair Colour without pre-lightening your hair. 

There are several shades of Manic Panic Colour that may be used on hair that hasnít been pre-lightened. These include both Classic and Amplified hair dyes. 

Recommended shades for this include:

  1. Wash with a deep cleansing shampoo. Do not use conditioner.
  2. Use a hair dryer to make sure the hair is completely dry and extra porous.
  3. Use your chosen Manic Panic Colour from the list above.
  4. Wrap hair in a plastic cap.
  5. Leave the colour to dry for at least 30 minutes. The longer you leave, however, the greater the effect.
  6. Once dry, rinse hair with cold water to remove excess and keep doing so until the water runs clear.
  7. Dry and style as you would normally.
For improved results, use a hair dryer for an extended period of time to help open up the hair cuticles and allow deeper penetration of colour.
