Special Effects is the only not-found-in-nature hair color I use; I've used a handful of their colors in the last 2-3 years. Their colors are long lasting (for weird semi-permanent colors, anyway) and don't ruin or otherwise dry out hair. The only time I recolor my hair is when the roots need coloring, not because the color has faded, although to be on the safe side I do pull the color down to the ends. The colors do continue bleeding color for days and days, so keep a "hair dye towel" handy at all times, especially if you have nice sheets or pale towels. Be diligent about wearing rubber gloves lest you have funny-colored hands, too. The Manic Panic I used several years ago doesn't remotely compare for lasting power, and it's such a right pain to color a weird color that having it last awhile is quite important in my book. Fatal Impact packages them well so the colors don't leak out and they ship quickly.
1. Staying power
2. Pink pigment
Also I found it was cheapest to buy on amazon and and many other places I would need to use her cosmetology license.
My hair is an auburn red color, and even though this is a light color, it turned up vibrant and pink on top of my real hair color. My hair is sometimes difficult to dye without bleaching, so I will keep buy Special Effects' products. It stays in my hair better than any other semi-permanent dyes.
This bottle has lasted me a long time because I have been diluting it so much. Also, because it is diluted each re-dyeing only lasts until the next wash, so it's a bit high maintenance. I'm sure this wouldn't be the case for someone going for the color straight from the bottle.
Something to note on the color is that although it is pink there are a lot of peachy undertones, especially where the bleaching was not as thorough. Again I'm sure this is just a result of the pastel look I'm going for and probably wouldn't be true for those dyeing straight from the bottle. Personally I love this look but if you want a purer pastel pink you would have to look into bleaching almost to white.

Special Effects is always a great hairdye. I think next time I'll try a more pigmented pink (just due to the level of pre-bleaching I did on my hair).Published 6 months ago by Jordan Renner
