Cassandra- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Candy Apple Red

I use Special Effects, Candy Apple Red, bleached first.
I've dyed my hair a zillion times and I've been doing red for a while, but this has been my favourite brand by a long-shot.
First picture: Right after dye.
Second picture: A few weeks later.


Katie again- Hair Dye used: special Effects Candy Apple Red

First off, I bleached my hair before using Candy Apple red from Special Effects. I bleached it until it turned a orange-copper color. The more damaged your hair is, the better the hair dye will stick and the longer it will last. Using a baby shampoo also helps the color last longer because it doesn't strip it. So, the first picture is when I first dyed it, it came out very bright and more pink then other colors. The second one is about 4 months after dying it, it turned somewhere orange. Candy apple red is the color that lasted the longest for me, it lasted about 5 months before I really had to dye it.


Mariah- Hair Dye used: special Effects Candy Apple Red

I used special effects Candy Apple Red. I had to lighten my hair from dark brown/black to a golden/copper hue prior to dye use, gold seems to hold reds better than blond for me. These pictures were taken from 2-3 weeks after coloring, I dye it once every 5-6 weeks to keep the color bright and professional looking.

Mary- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Candy Apple Red

I used Candy apple red over a faded atomic pink- (which took forever to strip! Not a bad thing!! ^^)I have naturally dark brown hair- so I had bleached my hair out to a pale yellow with 40 vol deveoper before any color was added. This picture was a week after coloring and washing two/three times a week. Best Red Ever!! I love this semi hair color because it's so bright and the color pay off is sheer love.

Stepho- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Blood Red, Pimpin Purple, Candy Apple Red

In the first pic I used only Blood Red and Candy Apple mixed, in the second I used all three separately with Pimpin' Purple on the bangs.
My hair was black, but I bleached it to dark blonde, waited a week and dyed it.
In the pics it was freshly dyed. It tends to wash out quick since I have to wash my hair daily, and even though I do the color last about 3 weeks true.


Jayne-Hair Dye used: Special Effects Candy Apple Red, Devilish, Cherry Bomb

Hi, here are some photos of Special Effects hair dye in natural brightsun (it really glows!) as well as in bar lighting. I use a professional L'oreal MagiRouge "Copper Red" color to dye my long, darkbrown hair an orangey-red shade first, then apply the Special Effects over that. The color lasts a few weeks, fading gradually whenever I wash it, until it looks either pink or orange by the time I need to do my roots again. On average, I get about ten compliments a day on my hair, including many questions from people who want to replicate the color themselves. The photos show a random mix of Candy Apple Red, Devilish, and Cherry Bomb in varying proportions and the first two seem to fade less than the third. I only use permanent color at the base, to lighten the new growth, but reapply Special Effects all over each time, due to fading. I have tried other color lines like PunkyColor and Manic Panic, but found Special Effects to be the richest and longest-lasting.

Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red and Candy Apple Red

I used half a bottle of Special Effects Nuclear Red mixed with a half bottle Candy Apple Red.
My hair is medium to dark brown with a hint of natural red.
I bleached some chunks in it, and they didn't turn out well, so I applied the 1/2 and 1/2 mixture to my whole head, even the dark natural color portion.
I put the bleach chunks in it a week ago, and just did the SE red mixture today. So the new red color, was just a couple hours ago.


Hair Dye used- Special Effects Candy Apple Red

My name is Scarlett. Here is a pic of my prelightened hair with Candy Apple Red from Special Effects mixed with my natural dark hair color. I have used every haircolor imaginable in red and special effects is the best. This dye job was only a few days old, but remained vibrant for a few months. Next, I want to try deep purple.
