Can I Put Permanent Dye Over Manic Panic?
You can put permanent dye over the permanent hair dye, Manic Panic. If the permanent hair dye of your choice is of darker shades, you don’t need to fade it fully. On the other hand, if it is of a lighter color, first remove the Manic Panic hair dye to apply it. For the removal, you can let the color fade or apply clarifying shampoo or semi-permanent hair dye remover. The fading is easy as Manic Panic dye cannot enter deep inside your hair. Use a coconut oil mask if your permanent dye has faded or if there are hints of pastel color in your hair. But for excessive frizziness, just use coconut oil. The application of clarifying shampoo rather than giving a dramatic effect can remove build-up from your hair and scalp. Avoid’ color-safe’ clarifying shampoos to gradually fade out your hair dye.

And, if you prefer to use hair dye remover, your hair will slightly lighten up. Make sure to bleach it to get the desired color for extremely dark hair.
