New Hair Time! I decided that I’m going to stay in the teal blue family with my hair for a while, so when it was time to re-do my hair, I decided to pick up Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise in the Amplified Cream formula. I always have to buy this online because I can’t find anywhere locally that stocks it. I also picked up After Midnight Blue.
Before I could dye, I had to lighten my roots. To see the full list of products that I use, check out my Beginner’s Guide to Brightly Colored Hair.
Here I’ve got bleach in my hair, just on my roots. It resulted in a silly look, so I had to take a picture and share. In all of these pictures I’m wearing no makeup. My rosacea is flaring up, unfortunately, so my skin is super splotchy.
This is after bleaching. I contemplated, for a short minute, going all the way blonde again.
This is after I have the dye in. Now, I should point out that I applied Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise Amplified Cream to all of my hair except the crown of my head. I mixed Atomic Turquoise with After Midnight Blue and a tiny bit of Black & Blue for that top back section since i wanted it to be darker than the rest.
I used the Laila Ali Ionic Soft Bonnet Dryer for an hour and a half, and then let the dye on for a half hour after that. I LOVE this bonnet dryer! It’s so much easier to use than my bonnet that I attached to my blow dryer. I just tied this on and read a book for a while.
Here’s my hair immediately after I washed the color out and dried it.
You can more easily see the darker section on top in this image.
I love the little blue, almost cobalt section in the front by my eye. I may hit that with purple again.
Anyway, here’s my updated hair. And for those of you who always ask, I last dyed my hair on July 6 and I did this to my hair on August 25, roughly 7 weeks ago. I don’t bleach my roots every time I do my hair, but I decided they really needed it this time.
How often do you dye your hair? Have you ever used Manic Panic Amplified Cream?

love the blue shades on you! And the bonnet dryer makes things so much nicer, doesn’t it?
cinseven13 Yes! It’s amazing!
Girlll you do so much stuff to your hair….. i’m here to make a wig for you whenever you need one!
LilySeymour Aww thanks! I actually have several wigs. I should break them out!
gorgeous. wish i could have my hair blue again.
Turquoise works SO well on you…. I has a jealous, let me show you it.
Love the bangs!!
I love it. You look great!
the only time i colored my hair a bright color was my senior year in high school and it was atomic turquoise. I love his color!! When it faded though it turned to a mint green and with my brown hair i looked like an andes mint. haha My dad wouldnt allow my sister to color all of my hair. I love this paired with the blue!!! so pretty!!
Looks amazing, but I have to say that I also like the look just after bleaching. It’s very Monet-watercoloured. Love the vibrant final result!
You can always get clip ins if you can’t go full on color
my hair is shorter than yours, not sure how a clip in would work.
Eliya, for that length, I’d actually suggest a wig.
do you know of a good place to get colored wigs?
Phyrra LilySeymour Yes honey… give us some hair candy!
Yes! I actually wrote a blog post about it
Do love it!
GAH I love this so much!! I can’t bleach my hair cause I have at least 20 years of red on my head, permanent and Manic Panic type dyes!! I can never get it to go a light shade to bleach it!!
