Getting My Hair Red With Manic Panic Vampire's Kiss

Hi Darlings

I have dyed my hair far to many times this year but I have always missed having my hair red even though it's a right pain in the ass to keep vibrant, but for me I find it worth it even though it can be a lot of work. Last year I dyed my hair 'Manic Panic Vampire Red' and I just loved it and I got so many nice compliments about my hair when I had it red so thats one of the reasons I wanted to give it a try again and not only that I also love the way it looks on me. 

Finding Manic Panic hair dyes can be a pain and I can only find them online and I got mine off Blue banana which is an alternative website. I got this for £9.99 which many sound steep but it really isn't because you get lots in the tub, I managed to use half on my hair so it will do me another time and if you think about it hughstreet dyes will cost roughly the same because you need 2 bottles most of the time because they only give you a ridiculously small amount.

(Honestly it's so important to do these because the last thing you want is this on your clothes etc, I've learnt the hard way in the past haha)

  • Manic Panic Vampire's Kiss x1 ( 2 if you have very long hair)
  • Old towel 
  • Plastic gloves
  • Hair cap
  • Tinting bowl and brush
My hair before putting the hair dye on was a light brown with a little bit of red tint to it and the reason my hair was like that was because I previously put on Colourless Hair Colour Remover Max Condition which took the previous hair dye out of my hair.  They do say to put Manic Panic hair dyes on previously bleached hair or light blonde hair but I found this works well for me and I really don't want to bleach my hair any more as my hair has been enough this year.

I usually get my partner to help dye my hair but he's been working long hours lately so I deiced to brave it and do it myself ( I would recommend getting a friend to help as its much easier) I put my hair into sections with a clip and applied the hair dye with the tinting bowl and brush and it took me about 30 minutes to completely cover my hair, I made sure my entire hair was covered by using a mirror every now and again looking at every section of my hair. 

I kept this on my hair for around 40 minutes even though it says 30 minutes but I wanted to make sure it was an intense red shade so I was prepared to wait. The dye wasn't like a usual dye it was more like a thick conditioner so I would say its easier to apply. Once it was in my hair I used a wide toothed comb to make sure all the hair dye was even. 

Once it came to washing it out I used cooler water than usual as red hair dye comes out sooooo easily believe me. I washed it till the water run into a light pink and then applied a conditioner to my hair, it's not stated on the tub but I find it keeps the dye in the hair for longer. I styled my hair as usual after coming out of the shower and I was soooo happy with it.

My Thoughts 
I'm involve! So glad that I deiced to dye my hair red again. Manic Panic you have done it again, you have made my hair a beautiful vibrant red, just like I wanted. I will defiantly keeping my hair red now and I will be re-purchasing this again in the very near future. I love how easy it is to apply and also the fact it doesn't have a scent, not a fan of overpowering hair dye smells. 

 As with any red hair dye then can bleed a little so defiantly use old towels after washing your hair and also tie hair up and apply a nightcap or use an old pillowcase. 

Things I love about Manic Panic
  • Lots of shades to choose from 
  • Also sell haircare 
  • All the dyes are semi-permanent 
  • Vegan and Cruelty free
  • Fab motto 'live fast dye your hair'
