Review: Manic Panic Rockabilly Blue

I've had Rockabilly blue for the last three weeks or well, trying to keep it. This is such a GORGEOUS color. I am in love with it but the color bleeding and staining are out of control. I've dyed my hair countless times and didn't really care about it. This dye formula is the absolute worst. They really need to fix it.

It's a must otherwise you need to have blue nail polish at hand and avoid touching anything because you'll leave blue fingerprints everywhere. I've had to clean blue fingerprints off with bleach. You can't even scratch your head.

I've only gotten my hair wet once because of how awful the rinsing process is. You have to be extra careful to keep your hair far away from your body or you'll turn into a Smurf! I can't even imagine how it'll be if I used shampoo. Does it strip the color out as much as it bleeds?

I'm disappointed at how this dye doesn't last at the roots. This photo shows ONE day after it was dyed. It's a much lighter blue and turns green soon. No showers or sun. :(

I've dyed my root area four times in the last few weeks but it's not holding up. Like I said this is a super gorgeous dark blue but this basically sucks if you use it on a full head of hair. Staining is practically not worth it. You can't wear any light colored clothing unless you're prepared for a blue stained collar. I have stained my friend's bathroom/walls and my paper exams at school were covered with blue fingerprints. :(

I've tried Punky's Atlantic Blue once so far. Let's see if this is better!

Edit: I attempted this dye again about 4 years later and I diluted the dye heavily. It was slightly better but it still stained if you weren't careful.
