Orange Hair Dye Reviews
Special Effects – Napalm Orange
This semi-permanent hair dye is not for the faint of heart. This is an incredibly bright orange, almost Neon. This will give a great highlight effect for dark hair but it will really stand out on pre-bleached hair, in fact it has been known to last around 4 months before another application is needed. On normal hair this will wash out in around 3-4 months after a number of washes. Pick this dye for a super-bright hair colour that’s going to bring some impact!
Crazy Color – Orange no.60
The Crazy Color, Orange no.60 is more suited for bleached hair and will last between 3 to 9 weeks depending on how many times you will wash your hair. This hair dye will add energy and shine to natural-looking hair or glow bright on bleached hair. For the best look, bleach your hair to the yellow stage, apply the crazy color hair dye without the addition of any other substances. A colour-safe shampoo is recommended for this product to keep it looking its best for ages.
Ion Color Brilliance Brights – Blood Orange
This is a stunning, beautiful-looking hair colour, but you need to work a bit to bring out the vibrancy. Like our other hair colours, it will shine if you add this to freshly bleached hair. The closest your hair is to white, the better this dye will work. This orange hair dye has no ammonia or peroxide in it and one tube should be enough to do shoulder length hair.
Manic Panic – Psychedelic Sunset
