Manic Panic

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Hey ladies, If you follow me on instagram odds are you've probably seen my new hair already, and know that Im in love with it! At first I was scared for my life. Knowing that I'M DYING my hair! even my boyfriend was getting paranoid about it lol. Thank you so much MANIC PANIC you saved my life. This hair dye product is super easy to use especially when you already have lighter hair like mine. It only took me 30 minutes to do everything! Isn't that crazy?! Seems too good to be true but it was super easy to use and affordable. I've been waiting for so long to get my hair done, and I was way over my blonde hair. I felt like it was time for a change. I've been looking for someone to do my hair but everyone seemed to be super busy with their own lives and here I am being impatient and just did it myself. It came out so good if you don't mind me saying so. The original plan was to dye my hair a Silver color. It didn't come out how I wanted it to. So, I decided to just go turquoise. Anyways, Here is a step by step on how I got my hair color! Good luck ladies =) If you have any questions, don't be scared to ask!

Follow these instructions to achieve the best results when using MANIC PANIC semi–permanent hair dyes:

MANIC PANIC  Hair Color conditioning semi–permanent hair color is fortified with an herbal and protein complex. This unique formula is gentle to the hair and contains no animal by–products. It can be used to achieve intensely bright colors on hair that has been pre–lightened to a very light blond, and on some natural blond hair. Some colors, particularly the dark reds, dark purples, or dark greens may give a highlight of color to natural dark unbleached hair, and may be brighter on lighter and more porous hair. A strand test is recommended to verify color on your particular hair. MANIC PANIC HAIR COLOR IS TESTED ON CELEBRITIES, NOT ANIMALS ! MANIC PANIC  formula Hair Colors do not damage the hair but actually have restorative properties adding moisture and “fill” to processed hair. MANIC PANIC  Hair Color should be used exactly as it is supplied without the addition of any other substances. Do not under any circumstances add peroxide to MANIC PANIC  Hair Color. Do not mix with permanent colorants. MANIC PANIC Color may temporarily stain the skin and may permanently stain clothes, towels, bedding and other material. Do not use alkaline products in conjunction with MANIC PANIC  Hair Color. This will upset the acid–balanced state necessary for maximum absorption of color by the hair. If setting lotions or blow–dry lotions are required, low pH, non–alcohol based products are recommended. Avoid eye contact.This product must not be used for dying eyelashes or eyebrows. If eye contact does occur, rinse immediately with warm water and contact A PHYSICIAN. Not for internal use. Keep out of reach of small children. For intense results the hair should be porous, bleached or tinted. When APPLIED to virgin (unprocessed) hair results will vary according to hair texture and color.

Things to do before you dye Patch Test: A preliminary patch test should be conducted before the product is applied. Select a small test area, about the size of a quarter, behind the ear or in the inner fold of the elbow. Wash the test area gently with a mild soap and water. Dab dry with a clean towel. Cover the clean test area with a thin coat of the specific shade of Hair Color desired. Allow the test area to dry. Leave it uncovered and undisturbed for 24 hours. Examine the test area carefully. If there are any signs of irritation then under no circumstances should the product be used on the person tested. Strand Test: To be sure that the desired results will be achieved, apply color in the manner described below using just a small lock of hair before attempting to dye a large area. Pre–Lighten Hair: If you want your result to be bright and your hair to appear the color as it looks in the jar (or swatch) it is necessary to pre–lighten the hair. If you are going for a lighter color or a pastel shade, it is essential to lighten to a white/blonde. Lighten your hair using FLASHLIGHTNING Complete Bleach Kit. Bleach your hair according to the instructions in the kit. Make sure you have thoroughly shampooed all of the bleach… bleach residue left over in the hair can prevent hair color from processing properly. Shampoo hair thoroughly using a deep cleansing shampoo: Rinse completely to remove all residue. Make sure hair is squeaky clean. Do not apply conditioner, as this will prevent the dye from taking to the hair. Dry hair completely. Protect: Wear protective plastic or rubber gloves for application. Use petroleum jelly or baby oil around hair line and on ears to prevent color from staining skin. Got all that? Then let's go!

Get your color on! Apply to dry hair: Empty desired amount into a bowl (half a jar for short hair, full jar for long hair). With the aid of a tint brush, apply color beginning 1/2 inch from the scalp and working it evenly through to the ends of the hair. Begin at the nape of the neck and work upwards through the head of hair. Be sure to completely saturate the hair shaft. Comb color through hair until it becomes frothy: This indicates that it has been thoroughly absorbed. Lighter shades of MANIC PANIC® Hair Color may require more combing to obtain maximum penetration and a longer lasting effect. Wait. Leave color on hair for 30 minutes or longer. MANIC PANIC will process fully in 30 minutes at normal room temperature. The use of an infra red heat lamp will reduce the processing time to between 5 and 7 minutes and can produce a deeper coloration with longer lasting properties. For resistant hair, it is advisable to place a plastic cap on the hair, and leave on for 60 minutes or longer. Rinse hair in cool water thoroughly, away from face: Due to the restructuring properties of the product, no after–treatments are necessary. Keeping It In: MANIC PANIC is a semi-permanent hair color that is made from vegan ingredients with no animal by–products which coats the hair, penetrating the hair follicle best if the hair is porous (which is why we suggest it will show up best on processed or bleached hair and more as a strong highlight over natural or darker hair). This means that, depending on the condition of the hair, the results will vary. There are no harmful chemicals in MANIC PANIC hair color that damage the hair like chemical–based permanent hair colors. MANIC PANIC hair dye is actually a condioner and will add moisture to the hair. In all cases, shampooing and exposure to elements (swimming, hair spraying, etc.) will cause the hair color to fade. We suggest washing hair in cool water to maintain color. One trick to making your MANIC PANIC Hair Color more permanent is to rinse your hair with vinegar immediately after coloring. This raises the pH level of the hair color and gives it more permanence. (Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water, comb through hair and let sit for a minute or two, rinse out thoroughly). For Hair Color that lasts 30% longer use our AMPLIFIED FORMULA. Getting It Out: A pre–packaged hot oil treatment may accelerate the removal of color. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully for application of oil. To remove oil along with some color, first apply shampoo without water. Add water very gradually as you continue to shampoo until oil is completely removed. Consult with manufacturers of lightening and color removal products before using, or get the advice of a licensed hair dresser.

Top: I can't say no to a "Smooth talker bralette" from ZOOHOO. I just love everything about it... From the length of the crop , super thin straps, and the perfect V shape cut. This sheik shimmery top was the perfect addition to complete my look, complimenting all aspects of my outfit.

Bottom: In love with my all white skirt from Foreign Exchange. Ladies don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Because sometimes a basic skirt can go with almost anything in your closet from sporty attire to casual wear. Also, I like how its really tight and stretchy. The most important thing about this skirt is the fit especially with my body type. I can never go wrong with a tight mid size skirt. Being 5'4" it can be somewhat difficult to find clothes that fit.

Bracelette: Super eye catchy and fashionable.

Shoes: Ooooooh! I can't even fathom how I'm feeling right now! These shoes are super comfortable and cute! You can't go wrong with this one. These Platform high heel shoes feature a cleated sole and an ankle strap fastening, Synthetic Leather and the Heel height 6", Platform height 2". Fashionable and trending right now!

New blog!

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Crissy B. developed her skills as an artist at a very young age. Utilizing whatever materials she had.
Crissy would use her mother's sewing machine to put them together to create her own garments. She would put on mini fashion shows for her friends & family in the neighborhood!

She began her journey at the young age of seven when she crossed over from the Philippines to the US. With such a huge transition she felt a sense of overwhelmingness adapting to her new lifestyle. It wasn't until the age of 16 when she gained her confidence back and began designing, styling, and picked up a new talent which was web design.

Crissy was all self taught, if you opened up a CCS window she immediately knew what to do with the code. She knew that if she wanted to get somewhere in life you had to work hard for it, because no one was going to hand it to you, and that's what she did. Sitting in her room 24/7 with no social life, connecting and blogging was how she was able to get to the top. Two years later she met Dontae Catlett and they produced a clothing line known as "Flawless Victory" Which would soon become a full line production company. 

Crissy now works as the creative Director for Flawless Victory Productions, making sure that all creative decisions reflect the team in a positive way but also showing their creativity. It's amazing to see how far we've come from when we were just kids doodling in our coloring books.
