Bumble and Bumble Red Hair Powder. It depends on the shade of your hair. Think Hailey Williams.

What product do you use to make your hair red?

Manic panic is a semi perm. Color, and what that really means is that it has little to no power to open the hair cuticle and go into the hair. Its going to coat the outside.

This means its never going to be super stable, it will fade quickly and possibly fade unevenly depending on your hairs porosity and how much 'damage' it has.

Additionally a lot of people don't realize that color molcules are actually different sizes, red color molecules are one of the largest, this is why people who dye their hair red tend to have more issues with fading. It also changes the ph of the hair.

Red hair doesn't have the same ph as browm ect...

Ok so what does this all mean, you'll be putting a unstable color over a fast fade color, making lasting power very short.

You'll be placing a smaller color molecule over a larger color molecule .... so likelihood that the organe will find any damaged parts or open cuticle layers to slip into is slim.

Then to top it off you won't be opening the hair cuticle with bleach, manic panic does this not only so the color is vibrant they do this so the hairs cuticle is opened per the bleach and damaged cuticle the bleaching leaves behind, aka. Open spots in athe hair where the semi perm color and can get into.

To get an oranger color I suggest 1. Lightening the hair with lighterner and 20vol. Lifting it a level should orange it up.

2. If you like the level red you have then find a orange demi color in the same level and do a gloss

3. Go to a salon, if they have a paul mitchell color bar ask for a color gloss, pm has a shines line which has items called color shots, one of which is a gorgeous orange, your stylist can work with you to get you the hue your after. Shines is a gentle product and a gloss service isn't all that exspensive! Let someone else do the brain work and the clean up!

Ps just saw your picture, the hair is fairly dark red, and looks healthy... I don't think manic panic will do what your wanting. Also your skin tone may not blend well with a deep bright orange like the tiger lily.

If your wanting a funky color I think a purpley tone would be better.

If your wanting more brightness a few panels of low volume lightener strategically placed is best! Keep the orange away from your skin...or take up serious tanning lol!

This is same color technique just on short hair and with warmer tones but it shows the use of the 3 colors much better.

Its very orange! Personally I like the red you have, I think the red you have mixed with the lighter shade you see on the shorter hair pictures and a customized inbetween shade or super dark red, like dark red for 'brown' areas, the your red in the front and the light orangey color for highlighted area...

If you'd like I can send you formulations to take to your stylist!

Best of luck!
