    I want to dye my hair that pink, but I am unsure how long to leave the bleach and product on. My roots are dark brown almost black, and the rest of my hair is a medium brown. I want it to be vibrant but I want to know how long to leave everything in.

    I have always used splat for coloring my hair. Yes they do fade quickly if u wash ur hair everyday and if u wash with hot water. It's not healthy for ur hair anyways to wash ur hai everyday under hot water. So far my fav color from splat is the blue. I love the blue because its a really cute blue and when it fades it starts to look like snow sort of. Soon I am using the red color from splat without bleach because to me the color is too bright. I used the bleach last time and I looked funny. So I'm going for a darker red look.

    i have only used the blue envy in my hair and i say it worked really well. i dyed it in september it is currently december and i still have some blue in my hair! i was not expecting it to last this long. it did fade hpowever about 2 weeks later but it didnt turn green it turned to a bluish gray and it was still really pretty. My hair is naturally really light so i didnt bleach my hair and it still came out really blue. im going to dye my hair again very soon. im going to dye it with the lucious raspberries and pink fetish on the underneath. i have never seen the way im going to dye it done so hopefully people will think its cool and never seen before.. :P

    I have never used splat before but I need to re-dye my hair and I don't want to go to the salon because they don't give me the red im looking for.
    So if I already have a red tint hair do I need to bleach it again? or will it come out bright red again?
  • meaganr... Taylor 2012/12/30 15:04:16
    It depends if u want it light or dark. If u want it light then yes bleach ur hair just remember it is damaging. If u want a darker look then don't bleach ur hair.

    I've used lusty lavender and blue envy both on my unbleached medium brown/auburn hair and have had great results with a very gradual fade out so my hair stays purple tinted for a long time and remains even until it all but completely fades out. Then I just do it again! Love Splat, lasts way longer than any of the other dyes I've used but it does bleed onto fabrics and stuff if I don't dry my hair after each wash but that usually stops after the first week or so.. So overall, I recommend it.

    I just dyed my hair a few hours ago.
    I used the Luscious Raspberries kit, bleached it until my hair turned about an orangey blonde, and dyed it.
    It's a bright, BRIGHT red, perfectly satisfying my once-never-ending-obsession over red hair.
    If the color ever turned out pink for anyone, that's because you didn't dye it light enough. I've talked to a sales associate, and she specifically told me that that would happen if you didn't bleach your hair to a light enough color.
    I covered the floor with newspaper, and prepared a can of Magic Scrub bubbles, ready for any staining that could happen.
    This product DOES stain REALLY badly, and if any gets on your skin, wipe it off with a baby wipe or something, as soon as you can. My hands are still magenta, from washing the color out.
    I only had one regret, which was that I didn't have enough for ALL of my hair, so there are some spots where it's a darker red than the others, but it's barely noticeable.
    The bleach did kill my hair, but I had dyed it 4 times in the past month, not ever satisfied with the results of other permanent hair dyes, which was probably why.
    Overall, I'm REALLY satisfied with the result, and I will be buying from them again :)

    Hi,i really wanna dye the underneath of my hair pink,and i bought splat to do it but my only concern is that EVERYTIME your hair gets wet the color will stain,idk if thats true so i wanna ask someone who has used it also my hair is naturally light blonde so do i still have to bleach to get a vibrant pink?:)
  • Torie cassie.... 2013/06/25 10:31:16
    If your hair is blonde then no. It does stain everything when your hair gets wet.!
  • brittney Cindy 2013/01/18 16:57:49
    This will be my first time using red. and my hair is brown so should i use bleach to make it look bright like ariana grande's hair.
  • Emily1126 2012/12/02 20:30:22 (edited)
    It is the only one I will use.

    Everyone who is saying it faded too quiccly either a)tried to put the color onto dark hair without bleaching like an idiot (unless that's the look they were going for) b)didn't leave the bleach/oxide/color in long enough (read the damn box...) Or c) is just a complete fucctard (probably this one.) However, the best one I have used is called "Colour Rays" & can be purchased at your local Walmart.

    I'm dying my hair blue envy right now and it's AMAZING! I LOVE splat... It has never faded on me before or anything!
  • 2012/11/14 20:30:19
    Splat is a very great type of hair dye it comes out wonderful and bright ^ __ ^
  • briana 2012/11/08 20:46:41 (edited)
    Helll no i hated splat i used splat red raspberry and it washed out about two days after after two washes. Plus it destroyed my hair its comparably damaged now. Its frizzy and no matter what i do to it the damage is still noticeable. Please if your thinking about using splat read this and just go to sallys and and get loreal and use developer because splats bleach sucks and the stainer is very weak and fades very quickly
  • Emily1126 briana 2012/12/02 20:25:37
    You obviously didn't do it right.
  • kkiely01 2012/10/30 05:31:38
    i decided to use the purple and do layered highlights with it. When im rinsing it will it bleed on the rest of my hair?? Im scared to rinse my hair all at once :/
  • courtney kkiely01 2012/12/11 05:45:12
    Ya, it definitely might....realistically, it probably will...you might want to just keep it seperate, and just rinse out what you want dyed....so, like, keep your hair seperate, lay the dyed parts in the sink, and rinse like that....maybe even do it ATLEAST a couuple, if not a few or more times....considering.the splat will continue to rinse out of your hair until it is completely washed out...but after a few seperate washes, it should be alright, I would doubt it would bleed into the rest of your hair with the ability to dye it, potentially

    On the product, splat...awesome product
    I've used splat countless times, and was always satisfied . The color is always vibrant, usually matching the box. But be weary...I have had to stop using the product. Because, as someone else mentioned, it does damage your hair...I'm bot sure if it's the bleach they use, or the dye itself, or perhaps just a combination of the two...butt, and I have very thin hair, almost baby fine, so the damage was irreparable, for me. I had to cut it, eventually.
    I have used ALMOST every color that splat has out...purple, most recently. And it was awesome, as always.
  • Torie kkiely01 2013/06/25 10:32:39
    Just rinse it in COLD water. it wont mix.
  • Kendra 2012/10/22 02:04:12 (edited)
    I have used many products and this one sucked. I used the red splat. It bled every time I washed my hair and I mean it bled ALOT. Because it bled alot it faded pink. It lasted longer than manic panic but if you want something more permanent then get RAW at hot topic or on their website for a better color selection. It holds color longer smells like bubblegum is soft and conditions your hair. It's 12.99 and is very worth it. I used splat because I didn't have enough to get RAW at the time. Also, to make color last longer I left it in for 2 hours blow dried the color in my hair until it was dry left on my hair dry for an hour then rinsed it out. It doesn't hurt to blow dry any color in just don't do it with bleach. I used less than half a bottle of RAW to do my whole head. To make any hair color stretch if the bottle is almost empty put warm water in it and shake it. I have been dying my own hair for years so I hope this helps :)
  • courtney Kendra 2012/12/11 05:50:25
    +1 rave for the dying suggestions , not the review...disagree with that, but must try the tips . I wonder if they truly make a difference, or not...

    Here is how mine turned out. I used revlon frost & glow highlight kit (sans cap.. applied it to all of my hair) then used the bleach that came with splat to even out my mistakes(was the first time I've ever bleached). I'm going to get some more dye tomorrow because I don't think I had enough and it came out magenta(was going for red). If another box isn't enough dye and it's still magenta, then screw it, I'll rock the magenta!

    Im 13 and my parents are finally letting me dyw my hair pink ( on the bottom ;) )

    So I was thinking about using this color but idk yet.. I have dyed my hair blonde and just did a week ago. I am going to dye it pink for halloween but my question is ; Will this work on my blonde hair since I have dyed it already? Thanks ( I only wrote no because i couldnt decide >.< )
  • sophia Rachel ... 2012/11/18 01:51:09
    If you only want it temporary then no you dont have to bleach it, but if you want it to stay for about a month give or take I would say bleach it, I didn't bleach my friends hair and she has blonde hair and hers stayed in for about 2 days
  • Torie Rachel ... 2013/06/25 10:33:43
    yes it'll still work!
  • ErikasMommy 2012/09/25 21:42:30
    I love Splat! The first time I ever used it my haor was really dark and I pit purple in the bottom and you could only see it in the light. My second time around I used the bleach provided because my hair was black and I wanted the colors to really pop! I had dyed my hair A LOT before and it still turned out great! I used the blue and purple the second time. I love that the smell isnt harsh. It does stain really bad but you just gotta take precautions. I'm allergic to bleach so I was really careful and nothing happened. Some minor itching but nothing major. That was about two years ago. I now have A medium brown hair color with blonde highlights. Im naturally a blonde and I want to get back to that. I'm also going to try the red as soon as I find the time to put it in my hair. Anyone have advice or anyone that has used the lightening kit? I really wanna get back to ALL blonde without frying my hair.
  • britt ErikasM... 2012/11/07 04:55:53
    Vinegar should help if u soak your hair for like a hour or two
  • GabbieGirl108 2012/09/25 17:57:00
    Ive been using splat for the past four years. It has the only bleach that will strip my hair the most and ive used manic panic and another sallys brand hair dye. Splat colors are the only colors that last the longest and stay the most vibrant. If people are looking for semi-permanent short term use a different brand. It may say semi, but splat is deff demi-permanent. Ive had friends where the colors really didnt stick. Its not the dye, its your hair. Splat doesnt really like sticking to certain kinds of hair. Ive had myself and my friends use the same color. And on me, it lasted the best because my hair was prebleached. Theres wasnt. And hair hair was blonde. But beware, if you use a splat red, purple or pink because the colors are very hard to strip due to the dye being so potent. I just bleached my hair yesterday (with the box kit) and i stripped ALL the blue out and where i had red.and purple it left my hair a light cotton candy pink. Ive never loved dye more than i do splat. And yes it does stain skin for a while so be careful. And it stains skin because of, as i said before, it is such a potent dye. Splat is the best for longer term results. And also be careful but also saturate your hair with the dye and leave it in for an hour or longer. Ive found if the dye dries to my hair its soaked in as much as it can and it will stick longer. Hope this helped other rainbow color hair dye users!
  • mzparis GabbieG... 2013/04/13 04:24:11
    How do u get the rest of the cotton candy color out? Plz help!!!
  • stephaniec.abendroth 2012/09/25 16:57:26

    I dyed my hair with purple Splat five days ago, and after three washes my hairline is still purple. At least my part looks normal, but I'm tired of having to blow dry my bangs twice a day to cover my purple hairline. And the Splat is already coming off the grey hair at my temples. Bad product. Manic Panic is much better.

    manic panic SUCKS, used it once to try it out and it was'nt as bright as splat nor did it stay in my hair as long. my hair color last about two months with washing it 3-4xs a week, mostly more because i end up scrunching it up when i don`t feel like doing it because my hair is so long. and i also straighten it, and blow drying it ALOT.
  • adriann... ellen.p... 2012/09/24 20:50:29

    you have to use Vaseline or lotion, if not.. wait until your color is settled or IT WILL TAKE THE COLOR OFF, and take dish soap and a tooth brush and wash it ff your hairline.. i ALWAYS do this.

    PINK FETISH: The first Splat color I used was Pink Fetish, the day after my high school graduation:) A friend of mine, who bleaches her hair regularly, did it for me. We dyed my bangs, the sides of my hair, and a stripe across the back. When we used the bleach, the lightest we could get it was a golden-y orange, with platinum pieces. So it definitely wasn't even, but the pink came out PERFECT. I rinsed it for a good 30 minutes, and it was still dripping light pink, which it continued to do for about a week. The color didn't fade very much, but when it did fade, it turned into like a cotton candy pink:) The only problem I had was getting the color out about 3 months later. We bleached it using 40 volume (I think), and my hair was a mix of dark brown (my natural color), gold, blonde, orange and platinum, with the pink still intact. LOL. We dyed it red to cover the pink, which was very effective:) Overall, I loved it, and I'll eventually try all of their colors:)
  • cassie.... Christy... 2012/12/12 17:40:15
    Heyy :) i was wondering if my hair is already a natural golden light blonde,i shouldnt have to bleach to get that vibrant pink right?i REALLY dont wanna have to bleach but i still want the hot pink im only doing the bottom layer. Lol

    Crappy packaging, often missing important parts
    Colour fades fast
    Lusty Lavender is magenta
