Top Tips for Professional Colour Application

Applying Professional Colour

  • PREP the hair by washing with a clarifying shampoo. This prepares the hair by de-mineralizing and removing any build-up of products. Do not apply conditioner or styling aids.
  • RINSE hair well and towel dry. Hair should be damp for application. Apply colour blocker to the hairline.
  • APPLY colour with a tint brush. Saturate the hair completely for even deposit of the hair colour. Use gloves or brush to blend into the hair.
  • PROCESS for 15-30 minutes.
  • RINSE thoroughly with cool/tepid water until water runs clear. Rinse different colours separately. Do not shampoo.
  • FINISH colour service by applying Manic Panic Pastel-izer or conditioner and rinse again with cool/tepid water. Applying Manic Panic Professional hair colour to damp hair will ensure better absorption of the colour for even distribution. The hair can soak up too much of the product when applied to dry hair, which could yield uneven results.

Manic Panic Professional hair colour is a semi-permanent direct-dye formulated to identify and bond with hair fibres. Once bonded, the molecule mimics the fibre, thus creating a flawless finish.

The combination of these features result in increased saturation of the hair shaft, maximum colour longevity, true fade on tone result, and even deposit throughout the hair length creating uniform results.

How To Create Your Own Pastel Colours

  1. Measure the desired amount of the Pro Pastel-izer into a colour bowl. The initial amount will vary depending on the service, hair length, and application type. The ratio of Pro Pastel-izer will always be higher than the Manic Panic Professional hair colour. Start by adding 1 gram/.35 oz of Manic Panic Professional hair colour to the Pro Pastel-izer in a mixing bowl.
  2. Thoroughly mix the combination with the tint brush.
  3. Once you are satisfied with your mixture, follow the regular application of Manic Panic Professional hair colour, as shown above.

Here are some tips to note when working with pastel hair colours:

  • Pastel shades yield the best results when applied to a level 10 toned blonde base.
  • Always start your mixture with more Pro Pastel-izer and add the colour slowly. It is much easier to make a colour darker than lighter.
  • Perform test strips with formula until the desired colour is achieved because the shade in the mixing bowl may be different from the end results.

Manic Panic Pro Pastel-izer has a gentle acidic formula that closes the cuticle and locks in hair colour while leaving a smooth, moisturized and shiny surface. This means it can be used to add shine to dyed hair or lock in the colour. The conditioning formula will also help to moisturize the hair and prevent breakages. For a deep conditioning service, heat can be applied to open the cuticle. Cool hair completely before rinsing.

Tips for Long Lasting Pro Colour

Advise your clients to follow these steps at home to assist in extending colour longevity:

  • Wash hair with a colour safe, sulphate-free shampoo & conditioner
  • Minimize the frequency of shampooing
  • Use hair products that are free of oils and alcohol
  • Style hair with low heat when using styling tools (blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, etc.)
  • Use a heat protecting product
  • Avoid salt water, chlorinated water, and river water
  • Avoid spa services requiring your hair be submerged (i.e. float spa pods)
