I love the color pigment that this dye has! I also love how long it lasts and that it doesn't smell bad. The only thing I didn't like was that it's quite messy and bleeds onto towels like no other after showering. I highly recommend this dye but just be careful of the messiness.

Punky Color is a great semi permanent fashion color/stain. Like all, it is quite messy but with practice, it is easy to manage. Personally I found this product to last longer than Manic Panic, and I take all precautions to prevent fading. The only downside is this bleeds like a mother. I used a towel on my pillow case - as long as the color was in, it bled. That being said, for the price and how long it lasts I will still repurchase.

This was my first time dying my hair such an odd colour. I used Alpine Green over bleached streaks in my hair.
-Dying. I didn't do it myself. Instead, I got a hairdresser to bleach my hair and then put the colour in it, since I suck at dying my own hair. :)
-Washing-Okay... I was expecting some staining, but not as much as it did! I didn't rinse it as throughly as I should have the first time, and bam! My face, neck, back, hands and shirt were turquoise. Nail polish remover is your friend.
-Colour-Since I used Alpine green, I was expecting it to be a lot darker... its shade was closer to the Apple green, so I was slightly disappointed. But my hair has been dyed for two and a half months now, and while the colour has faded, it is still very beautiful, and has faded to varying colours.
-Lasting-As I said, two and a half months so far. There are some parts where it is nearly blonde again, but the majority of it is still a vibrant green. I like the staying power. I am hopeful it will fade completely away eventually though.
-Use again?-Yes! I am planning on dying it Atlantic Blue next. My whole head this time :D

I have peek-a-boo blue highlights and I've used everything. I assumed this will be the best since it received really good reviews on here. Uhh.. No. The color payoff is great but staying power, no. In less than 2 weeks, the bright electric blue turned into a ugly green. Uhhh gross! Honestly, the best I've used was Prevana. So sorry, Jerome Russell, I won't be repurchasing from you.

I used to have deep blue-based deep purple hair and I previously used Splat but Splat's purple was actually a magenta so I thought I'd try this out. I bought the color Violet and from my experience with it, it has incredible staying power for a temporary alternative dye. I didn't bleach my hair a light blonde but it was in that stage between dirty blonde and very light chestnut brown and after dying my hair with Violet, it was a rich deep blue-based purple and I couldn't have been happier. It also smells nice, like blueberries, but it stains like a mother so be careful when showering and sleeping. I would recommend a layer of petroleum jelly on your face, neck, shoulders, hands, and arms and wear a really crappy t-shirt as the dye will get on you.
After a fresh dye, it was a deep-purple and I haven't tried any of the other colors but I believe they all have about the same lasting power before a touch up - about 1 and a half to 2 months, depending on how faded you mind it being. Mine always lasted about a month and a half before it started becoming a dull brown purple.
The price is also great for what you get! I usually only need half a jar to cover my whole head - my hair then was about shoulder length.
Great alternative hair dye and definitely check it out if anyone's interested in long-lasting and relatively cheap hair dye.

I effing LOVE Punky Colour by Jerome Russell!!! The colors are so beautiful, and very pigmented and rich color. I have used Manic Panic, and in my experience it washes out way too fast and is a waste of money. Punky Color will not budge and even on unbleached hair, the color is still very strong (if you have black hair though, you will need to lighten your hair). My colors of choice are Rose Red (extremely beautiful magenta/hot pink/with a touch of purple) and Red Wine (pinkish burgundy red).They look great mixed together. Anyway, Punky does not budge in my hair, even with daily washing it looks amazing for at least a month or more. It has a thick cream texture and smells like grape juice. My procedure is: Paint on punky color with tint brush on clean, dry hair. Wrap hair in plastic bag or shower cap, then cover with hair turban. This prevents it from drying out and keeps the warmth in. Leave on as long as possible (6-8 hrs) and rinse out. Do this on a day when you aren't going anywhere... the longer you leave it, the longer your color will last. Yes when you shampoo it will stain everything in sight because it is SO pigmented, but clean your bathroom with bleach and you'll be good. Also, your hair is likely to stain anything it touches when wet, so you should blow dry or keep it in a bun until it dries. And to protect your pillow from staining (even when dry, the first week or so, it will rub off on stuff) put an old t-shirt around your pillowcase to protect it. If you are willing to take some extra care, Punky is amazing for unnatural shades. I get compliments all the time on my magenta hair. I order it online from ebay or amazon for $8-10 shipped. I can't rave enough about this stuff.

Can we say stain city! I am used to using Manic Panic that was quite messy and bled every time i washed or wet my hair but it NEVER stained my sink the way this did. I used Red Wine..while the color is nice too hard to clean up. My hands are a mess.
never again..stickin to Manic Panic

So I joined makeup alley just so I could review this product. I came on here today to decided whether I should try manic panic or another type of hair color to put purple in my hair. After reading all the reviews on here I'm so happy that I found Jerome Russell punky colors. I've tried other semi dyes out there and the major things I noticed was unlike other dyes this one does dye smells good, and did not rinse out immediately. I was anctipating that the dye would stain my tub but it didn't! Almost immediately my hair ran clear after using the purple color. That made me feel like the color I'd actually going last longer than others. Plus my husband hates the smell of hair dye but he actually liked how my hair smelled after. I am a fan of punky colours and will buy this from now on!
