Natasha- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

I bleached my hair with 40 volumeto bleach my hair to very light blonde from dark brown. and then used blood red. i die the roots every 4 weeks and apply some die to the ends to to keep the color.

Stepho- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red, Pimpin Purple, Candy Apple Red

In the first pic I used only Blood Red and Candy Apple mixed, in the second I used all three separately with Pimpin' Purple on the bangs.
My hair was black, but I bleached it to dark blonde, waited a week and dyed it.
In the pics it was freshly dyed. It tends to wash out quick since I have to wash my hair daily, and even though I do the color last about 3 weeks true.

Lauren- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

I used Special Effects. I first had my hair dyed bleach blond.
Covered it with a permanent burgundy and when it faded, dyed it Blood Red.

Thotpham-Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

I used SE Blood Red. My hair was naturally black and I had to bleach it to a light blonde before the color was applied. It was originally colored 2 months ago and was touched up a month ago.

Angelica- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

I used Special Effects Blood Red. Prior to bleaching, there were a number of different colors in my hair. Everything from red, to temporary pink and even black, that never completely washed out. So my hair was a pretty reddish, medium brown color when I started. About a week before I dyed it, I bleached my entire head to an orangey blonde. About two days before using the Special Effects, I dyed all but the top layer of my hair a medium brown, using a drugstore hairdye, which I ended up hating. When using the Special Effects, I used it on my entire head, and left it on for about 25 minutes, as I was in a hurry. I can not believe how bright it came out in such a short time! I thought that because of my light skin, I couldn't get away with a brighter red, but next time around I will most likely go brighter. Or to an entirely new color altogether.
The first picture was taken after I bleached it
The others are what it looks like now, just 3 or 4 days after dying it.

Shauna- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

I used blood red over permanent red color, I am a stylist and do not like to overprosess so I use this in between my color touch ups.

Vscon- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

Used Blood Red used with a red protein filler beforehand.
What color was your hair before you started?originally dark brown with caramel highlights, but at the time of coloring had faded red box dye over the brown, highlights were somewhat ginger/orangy. Only bleached in the highlighted areas, but that was about 6 weeks prior. This is the next day.

Sarah- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Hot Lava, Blood Red

I started off with reddish blonde hair. This color is the result of mixing Hot Lava with Blood Red. The picture was taken the day after dyeing. The color is super bright and looks completely different under different kinds of light. It skews toward Hot Lava with interior lights and toward Blood Red in the sunshine.


Michelle- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Cherry Bomb and Blood Red

My hair was previously dyed with Cherry bomb over bleached hair, with some hair left unbleached. I bleached more of it and added the Blood Red mixed with Cherry Bomb. After about 3 months I touched up my roots with the same mixture and bleached some more, then after a month I completely bleached all of the roots - I concentrated Cherry Bomb on the top, and Blood Red on the bottom. This photo was taken 3 weeks after that touching up the roots. The tips are darkish red, and the top is bright red - I get compliments on it constantly, and strangers and excited teenagers keep touching it. I maintain my hair by treating it with a glaze mixed with conditioner (with a drop of Blood Red to boost the colour and help the roots blend in between dyes), which I leave in for 20mins once a week before washing - which seals in the colour. I only wash my hair once a week, I wear a shower cap to avoid wetting it. I use a dry shampoo every three days or so to liven my hair up between washes. I haven't experience any real colour transfer using this method.

Hair Dye used- Special Effects Atomic Pink and Blood Red

For the first, I used Special Effects Atomic Pink (mid October 08). I bleached my hair two days before from a light brown, otherwise I didn't do anything special.
The second pic is about two months later. Still looks pretty much the same, just the roots were peeking out.
Third pic-I decided to redye and picked Special Effects Blood Red this time. I bleached my roots, but didn't mess with the pink. Maybe that's why, but the color didn't last nearly as long (about 2.5 weeks). Too bad, because I really love how it looked!
Fourth pic- As it faded... The pink was still there, bright as ever. This picture was taken about a month and a half after the red dye - early February - almost five months and the pink is STILL going strong! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a vibrant pink with serious staying power. This stuff is BRIGHT. Pictures just don't do it justice. Not a quiet color, that's for sure. I've gotten tons of comments both good and bad, people asking the product name, little kids craning out of strollers to stare at my hair, audible gasps as people's corneas are seared, etc. I've even had old ladies tell me they wish they could dye their hair pink. I always tell them to go for it



Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red

Hi, my name is Jo. I've been coloring my hair off and on for the last 15 years! As of the last three years, I use Special Effects brand exclusively. It has the brightest colors and they last the longest! I used a 20 vol. bleach to lighten the highlights and went from black to golden yellow, then used Special Effects hair dye. I color my hair every 6 weeks, sometimes longer since the color holds so well. In this pic, it had been about 2 weeks or so since I colored it Blood Red.
