Cotton Candy pink is just the perfect baby pink. You can put in your hair for just a few minutes (assuming that it's bleached) and it will have a beautiful pink sheen, you can leave it for an hour and it's a *perfect* cupcake pink.
On my hair, it lasts. My hair was white when I put the pink on it, and my hair is very porous. It lasted for a very long time until I dyed a purple over it. (It was a month maybe?)
I completely recommend this. And it's excellent for mixing too.
I am really not a fan of this product, but there are some pros to it. I've tried dyes like Splat and found that they were very runny and messy, and they stained my sink when just rinsing them out. Manic Panic dye is very thick (I've tried other colors besides this) and it is not messy at all. The application is really nice and easy, and it rinses out clean. Manic Panic also leave my hair soft, and feeling healthier than it did with just bleach on it.
However, it's not the best. I bleached my hair, and it was pretty light but still had a bit of yellow tones. The first time I dyed it, when I rinsed it out it was very light and it didn't cover all of the hair - and I did fully saturate it while applying. So I dyed it again that same night and it came out very beautiful and bright pink. As soon as I washed my hair though, it washed out and was showing bleached spots again. I realize it is not permanent so of course it will fade with washes. But this dye just rinses out to fast and it isn't worth the upkeep. I do like to change up my hair a lot though, so I guess that could also be a pro for some people.
Pink was the first color I ever dyed my hair, back when it was all blonde and came down to my waist, I used this pink just on the undersides. My hair is naturally pretty light blonde, so I probably didn't need to bleach it, but I did anyways, and I got it to an inside-of-the-banana yellow color before I used this. I left it in for about 4 hours, and I did use shampoo when I washed it out though, because I just thought it would be gross otherwise, I was worried this color would be bright pink like the actual dye is, but it is true cotton candy pink. Fading, I honestly can't say much about, because I didn't give it much of a chance to fade, I just re-dyed it every weekend, but It faded virtually none each week. Also, one jar covered the underside of all of my hair, and was enough for a second dyeing too. All in all a good product, a little pricey though :/
horrible color, its so light and after one wash it almost looks grey!! big mistake dont use, go with a much darker pink!
This color does its job, as long as you realize it is not permanent and will fade with each washing and follow the instructions on the jar. It won't lighten your hair and is definitely not going to turn your brown hair to pink. Your hair must be bleach blonde, preferably nearly white to get the true color, which is a very pale pink, just like cotton candy. Using this on a darker or brassy blonde will produce a strawberry blonde color.
If you can get your hair light enough, it's an amazing color and look in general. It's really solid but its the most perfect girly Barbie pink you could ever want from a hair color. I do like to leave this on longer than other colors though, and apply more heat than usual.
When i bought this, i wanted something to tint the ends of my hair a light, fresh pink. I don't know why, i think i saw a photo of a girl with pink hair and got this idea in my head ...
Anyways, i didn't want it to be bright. So i got the lightest pink, it's GREAT! I got tons of compliments and I didn't look like some promiscuous teenage punk. Hahaha, it was just nice and fresh and a pop of colour. It kind of sexed up an outfit by adding a little edge, which i liked. Unfortunately, this lasts like two months. I have naturally light, honey blonde hair and it was died for a while. I got kind of sick of it, to be honest. I was relieved when it finally came out. I have a few other colours that i like a lot, but you have to be committed to the colour. It could be there for a while ...
I WAS TRYING NEW HAIR PRODUCTS WHEN I SAW THIS. IT WAS A GREAT COLOR... IN THE CONTAINER. WHEN I ACCIALLY USED IT IY.MADE MY HAIR A P!NK TINT FOR ALMOST 3MONTHS. THE ONLY REASON MY HAIR OSNT P!NK TONTED ANYMPTE IS BECAUSE I DYED MY HAIR. A WORD TO THE WISE DONT BY A PRODUCT JUST CUZ IT HAS SNOOKIES NAME.ON IT!!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to love this colour, but it just didn't do it for me. The colour payoff is extremely weak. Staying power is also fail - it faded within a week. Definitely not buying this shade again.
