Special Effects Atomic Pink
« on: 28 Nov 09 / 08:22 PM »
ok, ok, I know I should be neutral but I have to give a big thumbs up to this dye.  I've tried various brands and colours but Atomic Pink is still the ultimate pink for me!  On me it lasts about 3 months and even then I only re-do it because my roots are awful.

This stuff is great, the only downside is it takes ages to fade.  Good if you want long lasting colours but for those who like to change colours or only need colour for a few weeks its not so good.

Agreed! However, mixed virgin rose and cupcake pink put up a long long fight. Mine lasted four months...and I still couldn't believe I showered more than some of the cleanest people I know.

My fave colour of all time!
Just bought two more bottles!

The staying power is intense. I once bleached my hair twice and there was still some hanging on.

I've never liked atomic pink - I can never commit to a colour that long.

vibration I second, great colour but a pain in the a**e to remove...I have to alter where I had which colour last time I change as the pink would not come out...I used a soap cap thingy (blach + good shampoo..H and shoulders!) and my roots were nearly white and the pink was still there!

blue velvet and deep purple went over it no probs though.

obscurity knocks...deep purple is even harder to get out!

Yes it's fantastic. Never found a more FUN colour. I did it a couple of years ago then moved to purple but missed it so much that I added it back in to my fringe.*

Oh I love this stuff! I've tried just about every pink hair dye on the market and every single one has faded within a couple of weeks at most. A friend recommended atomic pink, and wow. Gorgeous colour. Lasted 2.5 months before it started to look too faded. I just refreshed it this weekend, and have a couple more bottles waiting in the cupboard!

Yes you have to do your regrowth long before any sign of fading....

It's been 2 months since I dyed my hair this colour and not once have I had to top it up :)
I wash my hair almost every day and straighten the life out of it every morning and it's still as bright as the day I did it  :D

Hi everyone

Never dyed my hair ever ever and now we are doing a tour and loads of us need to dye our hair for the show. I have blonde hair and I need to go v bright flouro pink for 6 weeks and then I really wanna be able to go back to my natural colour again- Will this be poss? Also, it really needs to look hot for the full 6 weeks... then we have another dark blondie who needs to go orange (bright) then a dark brown haired person who needs to go bright red..and a dark brown who needs to go a more natural darker red..... but we all need to be able to go back again at the end.. at least I want them to have that option... what brand should we use? Someone suggested putting another half bottle in with your reg shampoo to keep colour topped up.. des this work? Many questions! Thanks :o

House, this is what I think is best for you:

You can jump straight in with Special Effects dye in Atomic Pink.

For the orange - Special Effects Napalm Orange is really, really bright. There's also Hi-Octane Orange but that comes out red on some people.

For the bright red: Special Effects Cherry Bomb. Nuclear Red is more popular but will probably fade into orange. Cherry Bomb fades into like a pinky-red colour. I'd suggest using a bleach kit, depending on how dark their hair is. My hair was medium-brown though and it came out super bright with red. But yeah, I'd probably bleach it. Try the Manic Panic 30 Volume kit, because it comes with like everything you need.

For the natural red - Well, I'm not 100% on this one. I'd maybe use Special Effects Candy Apple Red (which doesnt look like a candy apple at all, really) and *not* bleach the hair.

SFX is arguably the longest lasting bright dye. I don't know if it'll make six weeks though, and either way your roots will be growing in. Plus, if you're on a tour, you'll be sweaty and trying to shower as much as possible, right? I don't know how long your hair is, but I'd suggest taking at least four bottles and trying to dye it again as you're on tour. It's really not super hard, if you're staying in hotels and stuff. Just wack it on your head, chuck on a shower cap, do whatever for two or three hours, then rinse it out. If you absolutely cannot do that, then the best thing for your colour is to mix it half & half with shampoo and your conditioner when you're washing your hair, and to wash with cold water. Also try to pick up a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, because sulfate fades colour.

It'll fade out a lot by itself, especially on the natural-looking red one, but you'll all probably have to bleach your hair at least once and then dye it with a permanent dye in your natural colour to go back. Even though they're semi, they will probably stain hair (especially the bleached one) so your hair would still look kinda pink or blue or whatever you dye it.
