Looking for colorful hair without bleaching? You're not alone! Because semipermanent dye doesn't lift the hair it doesn't damage, however, it may not show up well without pre-lightening. Keep in mind that the hair colors will be more subtle (see swatches on each color page for reference) on darker hair. The darker the base color, the more subtle the color so it may show up only as a tint in the sun. Some shades may not show up at all. They also, most likely won't last quite as long since the unbleached hair follicle is so healthy it is less porous and therefore holds on to dye for less time. For best results with Manic Panic, you'll want to lift/bleach hair before coloring. ALWAYS do a strand test before coloring to ensure you'll be happy with the outcome and you can adjust your mix if necessary!
Don't want to bleach all over? Try bleaching a front piece of hair and coloring just that!

For more vibrant results, black hair will need to be pre-lightened. The below colors can add a tint to black hair in sunlight that can last a couple of days.
