Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bold Hair Color My base color is a dark plum and I have a few highlights--the Vampire Red takes on a warm burgundy color as you can see in my photo. The photo being used in the advertisement is obviously on very light hair which processes much lighter. I have never received so many compliments on my hair as when I use Manic Panic Vampire Red. When the color fades a little, I add some to my conditioner and leave on for 2-3 minutes and it refreshes nicely--just keep away from scalp. Be sure to use gloves--stains skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dye! This dye says long-lasting, and it definately is. The color does not wash out as much as some of the reviews may say, as you can see by my picture. I simply use conditioner mixed with a small amount of dye. This is my first semi-permanent dye in an unnatural color, and I love MP for this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing color First night of applying this color to my hair and it came out absolutely beautiful and amazingly vibrant. While it does show up in natural dark hair, it definitely shows up best on lighter strands of hair (I have both light and dark colors). It's a wonderfully bold, yet obvious color, and I absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First hair dye I've ever used Before dying my hair, I've never dyed my hair before so of course I was a bit nervous, but it turned out amazing! I was hoping to have more of a deep red color, not too vibrant but still noticeable, and this dye didn't fail to impress. I dyed my hair about a month from today and of course it's not as bright as before, but I still constantly get compliments for it. I would totally use this dye again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Staying Power Other formulas beware, this one has them beat! My go-to has been Vampire Red Amplified formula, which is great, except for the fast fade and bleed out in the shower. With the Amplified formula, I was having to re-dye every two weeks. I would wash with cold water only and barely any shampoo. I bought this formula about a month ago and it looks great! Yes, there's fading. But nothing compared to the Amplified formula. Not as much of a massacre in the shower nor on your clothes. This is NOT something to buy if you enjoy to switch up your color frequently. Remain committed. Application is about the same by the way. But if you have a shade you love and hate re-dying frequently, this might be for you. This I should only my first dye with it since it is new, so opinions may change. I feel liberated to not feel afraid of shampoo and warm water anymore. I will be buying this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long Lasting Dye I’ve been using this dye for a year now and it shows up really well on my dark brown hair. It also lasts for a long time compared to other dyes. Only downside is that it stains things very easily before the first few washes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vibrant color I put this on my bleached (light blonde) hair two days ago and then put Manic Panic Amplified Rock n Roll over it, left it on for about 8 hours...washed it out in the shower, and the water never ran clear! Needless to say, my white towel was covered in hot pink color. My pillow had some dye on it too even though my hair was dry. Every time I scratch my head, my nails have dye on it... overall, my hair is as vibrant red as can be!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great color but bleeds like no tomorrow! I bought this color after deciding I couldn't handle having a boring hair color anymore. I've used pretty much every red shade manic panic sells except vampire red. So I thought why not? I put it on unbleached dark brown/medium brown hair. The color is a beautiful beet purple/dark red shade. The only issue is this color bleeds like I've never experienced before. Even the girl who works at my local hot topic warned me. After six washes the color still bleeds like it's just been dyed, a dark cherry red stains the tub and your skin. I tried everything to stop it from bleeding but no luck. The color still seems to have more staying power, I've had it for about two weeks and while it has faded more than I'd like, it's still a nice red. So it does work better than traditional formula, but at what cost?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the color When I got it I used it but it’s not enough to cover your whole head if you have medium thick hair make sure to get two bottles
