Manic Panic came out with a dry shamp that won’t destroy your color
Hey babes, bad news: if you color your hair, the regular dry shampoos you use might be stripping the shit out of it!
Yeah, I didn’t know that either and I’m shook. But thankfully, the geniuses at Manic Panic have invented a brand new dry shamp that purports to preserve your mermaid hair as long as possible. Thank f*ck!
We talked to Manic Panic founders Tish and Snooky Bellomo about their gorgy new product, Hair Freshener Dry Shampoo. Check it out here and read the interview below.
Where’d you get the idea for this dry shampoo?
Hair color can fade gradually with shampooing. We wanted to give our customers an option to remove oil and freshen their hair without affecting their color. Because water is the enemy of most hair color, we formulated our Hair Freshener Dry Shampoo to help our Dyehards preserve their Manic Panic hair color. By avoiding exposure to water, as well as the harsh detergents found in most shampoos, it will help maintain color.
I noticed this dry shampoo is anti-fading — does this mean the other ones I’ve been using could have been affecting my color?!
Yes! Many of them contain alcohol and oils that will strip color off your hair. Ours contains none of this – Hair Freshener Dry Shampoo is actually made with preserving our Manic Panic hair color in mind, so we made certain to avoid any ingredients that cause colors to fade.
You guys have always made hair dye your staple, no matter what’s trendy at the moment. So why branch out into more of a trendy product now?
We honestly rarely pay attention to trends — we create them! We make products that we love, and we use everything we sell. We made this product because it was something that both we and our customers always wanted, and we are so excited to share it with the rest of the world. We think you will love it as much as we do.
Is this dry shampoo better for girls with colored hair?
Because of the quality of the ingredients, it is great for all people with all types of hair. The absence of oils and alcohol assures that both hair and hair color will look and smell fresh.
How is this dry shampoo different from others?
Dry shampoo was a big craze years ago, but in our opinion it was never perfected. Some were aerosol sprays that we now know were bad for the environment. Others were talc-like, thick and left a film on the hair. None of these really made your hair feel clean.
Our Hair Freshener Dry Shampoo is a super fine powder that absorbs oils and leaves your hair looking and feeling clean.
The cute shaker enables you to gently dispense the delicate powder onto your hair. The packaging is unique, and 100% recyclable.
It works best when applied to hair roots and then brushed throughout the rest of the hair. Our Hair Freshener has a light, sweet fragrance, and actually gives UV protection. Like our Manic Panic semi-permanent hair color, Hair Freshener is vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and alcohol free.
What’s next for Manic Panic? More products, we hope??
Recently Manic Panic has launched a line of hair color made exclusively for the professional market! As bona fide hair color and cosmetic addicts, we are never running out of ideas for great products — as a matter of fact, we have a back log wish list!
And lastly: what’s the longest you’ve ever gone without washing your hair?
Hmmmm… I think it was over two weeks, when we were on tour in the UK doing backup vocals for Blue Coupe (an amazing band consisting of founding members of the Alice Cooper Group and Blue Oyster Cult).
Sounds worth it. Best of luck, ladies!
