It was time for a change, so I decided to update my hair. I wanted burgundy, red and orange, reminiscent of Fall leaves. So I reached for Manic Panic Electric Lava and Vampire Red.

Blue to Red

To get there, was a process.

First, I used One n’ Only Color Fix to remove as much of the blue as possible and some of the purple.

Intermediate Step

Here’s what it looked like after the Color Fix. But, as usual, some of the blue came back, so I had to bleach it. I ended up bleaching it twice. In between I used Redken Extreme Strength Builder Plus.

Electric Lava & Vampire Red

Then I mixed in a tiny bit of Vampire Red with Electric Lava (and I really shouldn’t have, because it went totally red). I used Electric Lava around my hairline (so my fringe, sides of my hair, the bottom layers of my hair in back. I used Vampire Red on the rest of it, part of which was bleached up so it would be a brighter red and the rest I left purple so that it would turn burgundy. You can see if the little blurry picture above.

I love the burgundy and the red together. I think it looks great. I’ll enjoy agetting the orange to show up in a few weeks.

Vampire Red was one of my favorite colors for a long time, so I’m happy to be wearing it again.
