H A I R // Manic Panic Hot Hot Pink Review

If you've followed my blog for the last few years, you know I've used a variety of other pink dyes. Why it took me so long to finally use Manic Panic is beyond me and I've become a loyal user for almost a year. I can't stress to you how much I love this product overall. But let's specifically talk about Hot Hot Pink.

When I first had it in my hair, it was definitely a hot pink with blue undertones. I thought it was going to be a pink with more orange/peachy undertones. But after further research, I realized the color I thought it would be was made after mixing it with the Flamingo Pink. Nonetheless, this pink overall is fantastic. Probably because I've washed my hair a lot less so it seems like the vibrance of the color lasts much longer. But I've also noticed that it fades out better than Vampire Red. Even though most of the Manic Panic colors come out unevenly, the hair towards my roots is more uneven than the other parts of my hair. Like usually the hair on the bottom half of my head comes out more unevenly than the top part. Whereas the red came out more unevenly towards the bottom rather than the top.

Compared to other pinks this one has definitely lasted the longest and most even when applying. I love the color as it's fading out and I don't have blond patches throughout my hair (which the ion color brilliance and color jams would do after 2 weeks of washing).

One thing I'm not too fond of the manic panic is that it purposely bleeds. Supposedly so that it comes out so you can change the colors often. However, I did not find that the Atomic Turquoise bled as much as the lighter colors (red and pink). I'm not sure if it was because I had already mixed Atomic Turquoise with the pastelizer so it was already bound to lighten up faster but I just thought it was weird. I have been looking into Arctic Fox because it comes with more in the bottle and it doesn't bleed as much. I still have two sets of colors I'm itching to use so that transition probably won't happen for another couple of months.

Stay colorful.
