The Iconic Trio
The first step to keeping your colour lasting for longer and looking fresh is ensuring that your shampoo and conditioner are safe and provide all of the benefits your coloured hair requires. The Manic Panic ‘Not Fade Away’ Shampoo and ‘Keep Colour Alive’ Conditioner have been specially formulated and created to help keep your vibrant colour from fading and lock both the pigment and moisture in.
Each includes high-quality vegan ingredients such as Sunflower Seed Extract, Organic Ginseng Root Extract, Rosemary Extract, and Sage Extract which each in turn provide generous nourishment whilst cleansing the hair well. You’ll also find that both of these products include a grapefruit scent so you can rest assured knowing your hair will not only look and feel fresh but smell good too! Within the ‘Keep Colour Alive’ Conditioner, we have also included Hydrolysed Quinoa which protects and maintains your colour whilst promoting a soft and shiny result.
In between colour applications, whether you are switching up your colours entirely or you are just ready for a top-up, we would highly recommend getting your hands on the ‘Prepare To Dye’ Clarifying Shampoo. Our clarifying shampoo can be used to create the perfect base for a fresh new colour application as it deeply cleanses and removes build-up and dirt from styling products and other outside factors. The clarifying shampoo can also be used to gradually remove colour as it will open the hair cuticle and slowly break down the pigment.
The Toning Duo
All vivid and vibrant tones are best applied to a pre-lightened and toned base; this will produce the most visible and effective result. The Manic Panic hair toner products are known as the Silver Stiletto Shampoo and Conditioner. The violet tone within the formulas of each of these products combats brassiness left in the hair after bleaching and produces an evenly toned base.
These products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free and contain a range of organic ingredients. These include Ginseng Root Extract to decrease the amount of natural hair loss whilst promoting hair growth and Rosemary Leaf Extract which prevents premature greying of the hair and reduces dandruff.
The Deep Conditioner
An evening of self-care needs no excuse and part of this regime should include giving your hair the treatment that it deserves. A recent drop on the Manic Panic UK website brought our highly popular Mermaid Hair and Repair Mask; a completely vegan and cruelty-free nourishing formula that transforms hair from a dry and unlively state to a smooth and fresh finish. This hair mask can be applied and left on the hair to condition for as long as you desire, all thanks to the non-toxic and gentle ingredients used within this formula. So get your hair mask on and relax with your favourite movie - the results later on will be worth it!
This highly nourishing and effective formula contains a range of repairing ingredients that in turn will smoothen and condition dry and damaged hair whilst restoring strength and protecting against outside aggressors. Our hair naturally goes through a battle with outside elements such as UV rays which can cause the hair to become dry; essential cleansing and styling routines can also affect the health of our hair due to damaging ingredients found in some products and direct heat. We have included Sunflower Seed Extract to protect the hair from damage caused by these elements as well as Wheat and Vegetable Protein which promotes and rebuilds strength within the hair cortex. Vitamin E, one of our favourite inclusions within this formula is the perfect ingredient for providing shine and moisture, essential during a deep conditioning hair treatment.
Those who have been riding the vivid colour hair wave for some time will probably share the same desperation to protect their colour as us, so we were determined to ensure the Manic Panic hair mask would include the ability to protect against colour fade. Quaternium-91 is a softening and conditioning agent that can also protect against breakage and colour fading too quickly.
Colour Depositing Conditioners
Another 2023 product drop was the highly sought-after Love Color™ Colour Depositing Conditioners. A collection of 8 different intermixable coloured conditioners that provide a vibrant and fresh transformation whilst also promoting nourishment and condition in the hair. Whether you have been wearing your chosen vivid hair colour for several years or you like to switch it up on the regular, the Love Color™ Conditioners can be used to keep on top of your current colour choice and create results within minutes!
Each of these formulas is 100% vegan and cruelty-free and has been carefully fortified to ensure that both the colour result and the general feel and health of the hair are equally considered. Quinoa and vegetable protein are both used as repairing agents within these products as each works to repair and smooth any surface damage on the hair strands and in turn produce a smooth and shiny result. You’ll also find Shea Butter, an extremely popular ingredient in hair and beauty care due to its highly conditioning properties!
Just like the Mermaid Hair Mask, the Love Color™ Colour Depositing Conditioners include a colour protective agent. Luminescine is a natural ingredient that protects against UV rays; a common factor for colour fade. This active ingredient will provide a protective layer on the hair that will minimise the effect that the natural UV rays have on vivid hair colour!
Protecting your hair from harsh chemicals by using gentle and appropriate formulas, can be the answer to creating hair that you once only imagined. Part of protecting your vivid hair colour from fading is to avoid washing it too often, but that isn’t to say you should be afraid to clean it! The Manic Panic hair care products consider your hair colour and make protecting it from fading an essential part of any shower routine.
