Elena Larionova:

The first time I decided on such an experiment, as the coloring in blue. Long thought, what kind of paint to choose, so that after a while she was washed off. The choice fell on "Manic Panic", too good for them shades in the palette. I did everything according to the instructions, I was very afraid that I would not get the color I want. To my surprise, when I washed off the paint and dried my head, I found out that the curls are dark blue, as I wanted. By the way, the quality of my hair did not suffer at all, the paint without ammonia, which turned out to be a plus for me. I began to wash off after about two weeks, now I want to try other colors of their company.

Olga Presnyakova:

Daughter wanted brightness and extreme, asked me to make her blue strands. I did not dare change the color for a long time, but I did not have anything against temporary changes. For starters decided not to spend a lot of money, and bought "Tonic", a shade of "Wild Plum".She dyed her daughter herself, she had blond hair, so the balm was applied without preliminary treatment. They waited according to the instructions and began to wash off. Effect on hurray! But there is one drawback - the paint is fixed on the hair, so when it starts to wash out, the shade becomes green. There are two options, or toning again, like us, or repaint your hair. In any case, for such a money effect we are very pleased.
