Can I still use high lift tint if my hair has previously been died with manic panic?
I know high lift tint is only supposed to be used on virgin hair. But since manic panic doesn't actually change your hair I'm guessing once it has washed out the hair is still considered virgin. Is that true? And can using a high lift tint on naturally medium blonde hair be considered sufficient pre-lightning for future applications of manic panic? I purchased the HLT in Violet as I misunderstood the color swatch to mean that was how my hair would turn out. But the test strand I did only got to pale blonde and there was no obvious pink tone, as there was on the color swatch.
