Special Effects hairdye is a semi-permanent, conditioning hair color that comes in a wide spectrum of fabulous colors. They are non-animal tested and made with gentle ingredients. Professionals and non-professionals alike are using Special Effects dye to get the bright long-lasting results they need.
The swatches below are of each color on white paper. The links from the color names below go to a gallery of customer-submitted (thank you everyone!) photographs of the color results they got. Your results may vary, we highly recommend prebleaching for the most stunning end effect.
Special Effects hair dye is just $11.98 each. 1 bottle contains 4 oz of dye, the thicker and longer the hair, the more you'll need. Special Effects recommends not lathering on liberally but using 'just enough' to coat each strand.
Special Effects (and by extension, us) is out of stock of a lot of colors right now. We currently have Candy Apple Red, Devilish, Purple Smoke, Blue Mayhem, Pimpin Purple, Electric Blue, Cherry Bomb, Nuclear Red, Virgin Rose, Wildflower, Deep Purple, and Blue Velvet in stock.
Your actual results on your hair will vary depending on what color you start out with.
Stuff you may want to know about dyeing your hair with Special Effects dye:
Semi-permanent hair dyes are like cellophane - and the lighter your starting hair color the brighter the resulting color. So, picture putting easter basket cellophane over your hair in a color when you check the colors above. If you put blue on blonde hair, you'll get green. If you put green over brown hair you'll get 'ugh'.
Dyes stain, yay! because that's how they work to give you good color! So, wear gloves. Use vasoline or hand lotion and slather it on every bit of your skin that you don't want stained your hair color when you apply the dye.
Jerome Russell Ultimate blonding 40 volume high lift bleach kit
This bleach kit comes with everything you need for highlighting/tipping/streaking, and comes with 2 applications of bleach. Contrary to what you'd expect from the name, you don't get blonde dye in this kit - just bleach =)
If you have currently processed or damaged hair, proceed with caution when bleaching. Really! I've overbleached my own hair before, and while it was a long time ago, it was VERY memorable.
