5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff January 4, 2010
By Kristin
Special Effects just might be the best semi-permanent dye on the market and Virgin Rose is just beautiful. The color payoff is intense, dimensional and insanely glossy. I never bleached my light/medium brown hair before applying and still got wonderful results with deep color.

If you want a dye that will come out completely (like for kids or a short-term change), this is NOT the product for you. It did stain my hair permanently. Of course, this is a plus for those of us who want our color to last and last.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly what I expected July 8, 2009
Verified Purchase
This color never, ever, ever fades.
I had dark brown hair (dyed) and bleached it to a dark golden blond.
The color turned out perfect magenta and stayed in my hair for over three months before I decided to change style. It never even started to fade.
Still now, after dying my hair brown black I can still see hints of the color were it used to be. And the other parts of my hair that I bleached over are still pinkish.
Be caferul when dying tho... this will stain everything!! It stained my tub, brush, pillows, even the straightening iron is still pink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this color December 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I use this product to put just a streak of color at the front of my hair. I don't bleach beforehand, but even with my naturally dark brown hair this product gives a magenta highlight that especially stands out in the sun. It turns the water bright pink the first time I shower, but after that it doesn't bleed on pillows or clothing or anything. It's more reddish than purple, so if you're wanting a strong purple color go with another dye. I love this color and will buy again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Permanent Dye I've Found September 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
After using a semi-permanent dye from Manic Panic, I went on the hunt for a permanent hot pink dye. I googled, and eventually came up with Special Effects.

I have naturally darkish-blonde hair, and my stylist decided we'd better strip out the parts of it that were going to be dyed pink. We stripped the blonde bits and applied about 2/3 of the bottle of Virgin Rose, then left it on for 35 minutes before washing. We definitely used too much dye--I had excess dye transferring off of my hair onto my brush, my fingers, my pillowcase, etc. for almost two weeks. I'd say half the bottle is plenty, and my hair is medium-long.

The color is electrically bright and barely faded at all during the 5 weeks I kept it on. I had a few spots at the ends that were turning pinkish-orange, but they weren't very noticeable.

The down side to all of this is that I decided to get rid of the pink, and it was difficult to impossible. I had 25 minutes of bleaching to try to get the pink out, and it ended up looking like a My Little Pony tie-dye hell-scape. Some areas ended up canary yellow, some were peach, and there were shades of pink from cotton candy to the original hot pink. I could have tried another round of the bleach, but decided to just cover it all up with dark brown and save myself the damage.

The moral of the story is that this dye flat-out WORKS. Your hair will look amazing. However, you're making a long-term committment and you could end up with more than you bargained for to try to change the shade later on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely color October 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
I used this dye mixed in a 1:2 ratio to SFX Wildflower and it turned out a brilliant purple with a slightly magenta cast. As it fades the reddish tones are sticking around more, as is to be expected. and it's sort of fuchsia now. I have gotten more compliments from strangers (more reliable than friends, I've found) on this color blend than any other shade I've done.

4.0 out of 5 stars No purple, all pink September 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was looking for a bright colored purple, like the color shown in the picture. Bleached my hair, followed the instruction, and it came out hot pink! Albeit a very nice pink that looks great has faded nicely along the way. I was upset it wasn't purple, in anyway, but the pink is very very pretty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virgin Rose SFX Dye July 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I really love special effects, and this hair color works amazingly every time I use it. It's a nice purpley/pink, and fades to a pretty intense neon pink. I always get lots of compliments on it as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the quality, but the color is off September 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I absolutely would have given this 5 stars if the color had been what I expected. I purchased "Virgin Rose", which looks PURPLE in the graphic. However, it came out as a bright pink (which actually makes sense with "rose" in the name, but hey the picture looked purple).

So, color aside, this is the best brightly colored hair dye that I have used. It's nice and thick so it doesn't drip and slide off your hair when applying it. Other colors I have used wash out in one to two weeks and fade. They also pretty continuously leave behind dye on my towels. Not that this WON'T leave dye on your towels, but it was only the first few washes that had the most dye wash off. The color has lasted really well in my hair for several weeks now. It's a very vibrant color that hasn't faded. I will definitely be on the lookout for an actual purple color (pimpin purple on order as I type this).
