Dark, sultry, intensely natural, yet supernatural at the same time. Manic Panic Supernatural Shades encapsulate these terms. These are special Manic Panic shades inspired by natural colors, tones and reflections. For anyone who experiments with hair color, you know that brown/natural hair dyes are notoriously difficult to remove, and you risk damaging the hair during the removal process. Once you have committed to going darker, you generally have to wear it out and let it fade. Manic Panic understands this and produced Supernatural Shades for those who want to go brown for a couple of weeks before returning back to vivid shades or natural color.


Supernatural Shades gives you the flexibility to seamlessly experiment with browns and switch back and forth as you please. Try out a brown or black without the damage and commitment. It features the same conditioning formula found in every other Manic Panic semi-permanent cream, while also being 100% vegan and cruelty-free.


Perfect for:

  • Trying dark natural shades without full commitment and need for extreme removal
  • Adding dimensional panels of natural color to vivid shades for truly special looks
  • Mixing into other colors, especially vibrant vivids, for a more subtle vibe
  • Diluting into dusty pink for a rose gold finish
  • Adding depth to light brown hair


    How to use:

    Hair should be pre-lightened (bleached) to a pale blonde before coloring. When color is applied to virgin (unprocessed/natural) hair, results will vary (according to hair texture and color). This product should not be used for dyeing eyebrows and eyelashes. If eye contact does occur, rinse immediately with warm water.
    It is recommended to pre-lighten (bleach) your hair to a level 9 or higher for a true color tone. Darker/warmer shades work best on hair that can only be lifted to a darker blonde shade. An even level 10 platinum blonde is required for all pastel shades (like Creamtones® or any shades you may have “pastel-ized” with the Pastel-izer®) as well as all shades of grey.
    A strand test is recommended before committing to larger color coverage. It will help determine specific processing times and end color results. It is especially important if the hair is damaged, over-processed or the end goal is a dramatic alteration of your hair color.


    Follow these instructions:

    • 1. Wash hair with a deep cleansing/clarifying shampoo and do not condition
    • 2. Dry hair with a hair dryer to make sure the hair is extremely porous and to remove excess water
    • 3. Apply Manic Panic Hair Color (it is recommended to wear gloves during process)
    • 4. Comb through the hair color (may become slightly frothy) to make sure it is evenly applied and thoroughly saturated in your hair
    • 5. Cover hair with a plastic cap
    • 6. Use a hair dryer to apply heat to your hair for part of the processing time as this will help to open up the cuticle and allow the color to better penetrate the hair strand
    • 7. Leave on for 30-45 minutes
    • 8. Towel and/or blow dry hair, style as usual
    • If there is color left on the skin, it is temporary but it can be removed using the Salon Fuels Dye Remover Wipes
    Color can be maintained and refreshed using an appropriate color shampoo, conditioner and/or treatment. Glowtone colors last approximately 6 weeks on light blonde hair. Duration of colors depends upon a variety of factors: condition of hair, depth of color, frequency of washing, use of styling aids or heat tools, exposure to sunlight, salt, chlorinated water, etc.

    Do I need to pre-lighten my hair?

    Applying Manic Panic to pre-lightened hair is the best way to assure you achieve vibrant results. For the most intense color, apply color to a pale blonde (level 9-10). For at-home lightening, bleaching kits are available from Manic Panic, Crazy Color and Stargazer. Different levels are shown below:



    Pre-lightening before coloring is the most important step when using Manic Panic and is essential step to ensure the end color results are as close as possible to the color swatch. Natural hair is smooth and not very porous and absorbent so it requires pre-lightening to open the hair cuticles, making the hair porous and absorbent so the hair picks up the pigments.
    Lightening also makes the color pop as Manic Panic is a direct pigment dye that sits on the surface of the hair. The color of natural hair alone does not determine whether or not bleaching is necessary. For example, natural blonde hair may require bleaching to become porous just as any other hair color does. The color itself does not change the structure of the hair.
    When applying new color to the hair, the new re-growth at the roots needs to be pre-lightened again so that section of hair can pick up the color pigments.


    Can I use the color on hair that is not pre-lightened?

    For hair that is naturally Level 3-7, colors that will give the best results are:
    Deep Purple Dream, Enchanted Forest, Fuschia Shock, Green Envy, Hot Hot Pink, Infra Red, Purple Haze, Raven, Rock ’n Roll Red, Vampire Red and Violet Night
    When the color is applied to natural hair, the molecules will slide off very easily when you rinse or wash. Only natural hair that is somewhat porous may hold onto some of the color in the most highly pigmented shades, resulting in a lighter tint or glow of color that is best seen in bright sunlight. If this color “sticks” to your natural hair, it will normally fade a lot faster than it would on lightened hair. Pre-lightening is essential for vivid, bright color results.



    Can this color cover grey hair?

    Darker colors may tint grey hair and eventually fade to a nice pastel. Lighter colors may add a nice hue of color. Results may vary based on the natural porosity and shade of your hair. It is recommended to use heat from a blow dryer during the processing time. Grey hair can be very resistant to any hair color. Even though grey hair is light in color, it often needs to be pre-lightened or otherwise processed in order for Manic Panic Semi-Permanent Hair Color to work best.
