Sav- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red
I used the brand Special Effects, the color is called Nuclear Red. I just bleached my hair to a light blonde, then applied the Nuclear Red. Before I bleached it my hair was a dark Brown, this picture was taken a few days after dyeing..
Raquel- Hair Dye Used: Special Effects Nuclear Red
My hair was black and I had to bleach it (w/40 vol. developer) to get it to this intensity. This was about two weeks since it had been dyed. I've tried many other hair dyes and this has been the one that lasts the longest and has such intense colors.
I recommend you use dry shampoo in order to make the color last even longer! Also use leave-in conditioner to have it healthy.
Susie- Hair dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red
My hair was naturally dark brown.
I bleached it to a light golden orange color and dyed it with Devilish. It faded into a pinkish orange color. I then bleached it again about two months later and dyed it with Nuclear red.
Leila- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red, Hi Octane Orange
I loved special effects hair color!! Amazing!!!
The color is a result of an all over bleach to a medium/light blond then an all over application of special effects.
The color is a mixture of Nuclear Red and just a tad of the Hi Octane orange. This color lasts so long. This pic was taken about two weeks after I did the color!! I hardly wash my hair, but the color still stays virbrant after a month!

Marianne- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red
I used Special Effects Nuclear Red. Before I dyed I didn’t bleach, my
hair was a faded red/brown color. I applied L’oreal HiLights in Red with
40vol developer and the next night applied the Nuclear Red. To keep the color
fresh I mix some of the Special Effects with my conditioner and leave it in
my hair for about 15-20 minutes when I wash my hair, similar to color depositing
shampoo products. People notice how vibrant it makes me hair look in between
colorings. The last I dyed it was a month and a half ago and it is still a pretty

Stacy- Hair Dye used: Special Effects
Pic#1 and 2
Hair color: Atomic Pink, Nuclear Red, Napalm Orange, Bright as @$* yellow, Iguana Green, Electric Blue, Deep purple and Wildflower mixed. (All Special Effects)
Application: Started with top pink part first, sectioning it all the way around from my temples, one side slightly slanted longer. After pink was finished I applied
the rainbow colors in order in vertical sections. Washing out the color was the hardest part because the pink, the darker colors and the lighter colors
had to be washed all seperately to avoid the colors bleeding into one another.
Started with: Had bleached hair to start with (20vol).
How long since colored: freshly dyed.

Nikki- Hair dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red
I bleached my hair first, leaving it in for about 30 or 40 minutes to get my hair to a pale pale white. Then washed the bleach out with cold water. Next I applied Nuclear Red hair dye and left it on for about 45 minutes. Next I did what my friend suggested (which really works), I mixed equal parts cold water and vinegar together. I poured this over my hair until the color runs clear. Then I washed the vinegar and remaining color out with cool water and a good quality conditioner. To keep the color staying bright don't wash hair too often (I washed it 1-2 times a week) and used a dry shampoo spray to keep it looking sharp without washing. I also washed with ONLY conditioner to keep the color vibrant, lasts about 2 months before it starts to fade.

1st, my hair dresser Tracey gave me a straightener perm.
Then she bleached chunks of my black hair and dyed each chunk
seperately with the above mentioned colors, with some chunks left blonde.
The pictures shown are within the week of the process.

Jeff LaBar of the bands Cinderella and Freakshow again- Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red, Hi Octane Orange
1st my hair was dyed back to black. Then chucks were bleached from the top of my head down.
Next, Tracey added the red to the top and orange next in the middle fading to the bleached tips,
creating what she calls a "fireball". Personally I think it looks like a sunset.
Do not try this at home. No seriously...don't. (Actually, you can give it a try)
The pictures shown were taken the next day.

Hair Dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red, Blood Red
Hi, my name is Jo. I've been coloring my hair off and on for the last 15 years! As of the last three years, I use Special Effects brand exclusively. It has the brightest colors and they last the longest! I used a 20 vol. bleach to lighten the highlights and went from black to golden yellow, then used Special Effects hair dye. I color my hair every 6 weeks, sometimes longer since the color holds so well. In the first pic, I had colored it using Special Effects Nuclear Red, and then attached red dread falls that matched perfectly! In the second pic it had been about 2 weeks or so since I colored it Blood Red.
Hair dye used: Special Effects Nuclear Red, Napalm Orange in two pics. Then Rebecca's Tequila Sunrise- Nuclear Red, Atomic Pink, and bleach.
Rebecca and Molly-
These are combinations of Nuclear Red, Atomic Pink, Napalm Orange, Wildflower and Burgundy Wine.
My sister and I have been dying our hair with Special Effects hair dye for about three years now. We always bleach it out before putting the bright colors on, and have developed some techniques to make it last. I never have to re-dye because the color fades, only because my roots grow out!!
-We always use Special Effects... it is by far the best bright hair dye on the market!!
-Yes it is necessary to bleach our hair out before dying it, but we only bleach out the natural color, once the dye is in it stays. We do, however, put new color on top of the old dye job, it really mixes up the color and creates some cool shades! Keep in mind that the colors do change between a fresh dye and after a few washes.. so account for it when you decide what colors to use. I find that mixing the pinks, oranges and reds doesn't show up much in the beginning, but as the color fades they really come out!
-None of these pictures were taken immediately after dying, they all have at least a few weeks on them.

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.

My hair is naturally dark brown and I dyed it black....bleached the underneath with Manic Panic 40vol bleach kit.
Got it a pale yellow light orange and washed with dawn dish detergent. Blow dryed it.
On the two left pics, I put Nuclear Red on by Special Effects and left on for 1 and half hours.
Beautiful color and stayed in for a long time.
Hair Dye used- Special Effects Nuclear Red, Yellow, and Napalm Orange
"All 3 pictures were taken the week of dying my hair, and they stayed vibrant like that for about 2 weeks give or take a shampoo. In the first picture i started out with mostly natural red hair, then did low lights with black, and bleached highlights around that so i had my natural color, black and blonde all together. then i put the nuclear red on it and all the various shades of hair acted accordingly.
Second pic is after my hair had grown out a bit, i kept dying it with the Nuclear Red, then i bleached my roots and put bright yellow on it and blended it into the red, which gave me that lovely orange color in between.
Hair Dye used- Special Effects Nuclear Red and Atomic Pink mixed in.
I dyed my hair the lightest blonde I could and mixed the two colors above.
When I got a nice ratio I put it on my hair and let it sit in for a little over an hour.
Then blew dry it for a couple minutes, then washed it out.
