For the brightest scarlet locks, Pillarbox Red is a natural choice. Named after the post office boxes in the UK, this color is lighter and more chromatic than Rock 'N' Roll Red, but darker and cooler than Wildfire. Bleaching prior to use is definitely recommended to achieve the richest color. For a matching red lip, use our Lethal Lipstick in CS Red. Vibrant color results are best achieved by applying to hair that has been pre-lightened with Manic Panic Flash Lightning Bleach Kits.
MANIC PANIC began on 7/7/77, when two N.Y.C.-born sisters, added some extra ambition to their rock 'n' roll lifestyle. At the time, the sisters were singers in the original Blondie lineup, and a few of the people who helped to ignite the late 70's PUNK scene would have ever dreamt of the company's current acceptance by the mainstream. Through MANIC PANIC's decades of evolution, it has become the internationally renowned hair color and cosmetics company that it is today.

You guys! This is an amazing product! I was originally on the fence about this and only bought one jar, I had to buy it off of amazon because I live in the middle of nowhere and I am VERRY happy with the speedy delivery! I absolutely adore manic panics pillar box red. I did not bleach out my naturally brown hair before using this and it turned out perfect! It goes in easy and I do a root touch up once every two weeks! And it looks awesome( I also use this in a mixture with conditioner once a week to keep color from fading) I would whole heartily recommend this to anyone!
Nice color that lasts FOREVER.

So I have a love/hate relationship with manic panic. The love: this is a great color, it didn't bleed, it looked great, and it lasted. The hate: holy cow it lasted...forever. It would NOT come out. We tried vigorous washing, baking soda, peroxide, even taking my daughter to the salon to try and get it removed didn't work. So just beware, it's not going anywhere—be prepared to have red hair forever or cover it up with something else (we used blue).
Great stuff!

I'm a natural ginger, however being almost 40 I have a little more grey in my beard than i'd prefer to see there. I brush/comb (using an eye brow brush and comb) some of this onto my beard and mustache, use a blow dryer to give it some heat for the first 5 minutes then rinse it out. It actually makes a surprisingly natural color of red for me that way! As an extra tip if you haven't used dyes before, put some vasaline around the skin along your hair line where you don't want the skin dyed and the dye will wipe right off. When someone mentioned that to me, I was worried that any thin spots in my mustache or beard would make my face look dyed but it didn't. Just take care to apply it to the hair well.

All in all, a great product. I've retouched it once since the first application, about two weeks ago. It also takes very little so this one jar is going to be enough to last me at least 6-9 months or so.
Vibrant and bright red!

My go to color for the last few years, I get so many compliments, even as the color fades and changes tones.
I leave on overnight, or most of the day and my hair always comes out feeling thick, healthy, and soft. This also helps retain the red color for about 2 months, but I only shampoo once a week.
Decent dye

4.0 out of 5.0 by Kittie on November 27, 2015
This hair dye is great the first few days. I found that it's better to use heat (blow dryer and foil) if you want the color to be vibrant. Unfortunately, this dye fades more quickly than I expected. It only stayed red for about a week and a half. The color fades to an almost flamingo pink which still looks okay. Another thing that I've come to realize is: if you're sweating, your dye runs and will stain your skin (and anything else it comes in contact with.)
I love Manic Panic

5.0 out of 5.0 by Mudpuppy on June 24, 2017
I love Manic Panic! I really like Pillarbox however I find it is just a little too orange for my liking once it's been washed out a bit. However, that's when Vampire comes into play as it's much more my colour. The brand in general has awesome staying power, and i have found that any spills (even if forgotten for a while) will eventually come out of most surfaces which is useful!
Knock Offs Floating Around - Buyer Beware

1.0 out of 5.0 by M. Kinyon on May 5, 2015
Got a knock off. Was not Manic Panic.
Ingredient list was different, and bottom had things molded into it. Manic Panic has a warning out for knock off products! Only buy from a authorized realtor til this is handled!!! Sally Beauty usually has Manic Panic dyes on hand.

If you have an old manic panic dye on hand and have bought a dye off here, just compare the container. If ingredient list looks any bit different, bottom has something stamped into it, etc. Do not use it! Contact Amazon and report it! I myself got a refund for the knock off I received, and I ended up just using in my artwork a bit rather than my hair because I didn't trust it.
Love it. Very satisfied.

Worked for what I wanted. Looked very red over my light brown natural hair. My hair matched my red satin curtians. Left it on way longer than directions say since its not damaging to your hair. And it's faded some after a month but not a lot. Still very red. Does not run as much as the rockabilly blue. So have not had a problem with it staining my skin or shower when I washed it. Little does come off on towels but if you expect it, it's not a problem. All in all great product.
Awesome Red

5.0 out of 5.0 by ImayCheck on April 12, 2012
its got a jelly-ish Consistancy (even for manic panic) and its a beautiful Jewel-Toned Red which means it fades to Pink on bleached hair after a little while, its a great color to use over a permanent red dye if you want a brighter effect. It comes out Little Mermaid red on gingery copper hair, when heat is added. I leave it on for at least an hour (on damp hair because the dye goes further) with a bag/shower cap on it and blowdry hot over the bag. It doesn't stain NEARLY as much as SPLAT! or Manic Panic's Electric Banana, or Jazzing's Ruby Red, but still be careful. It usually takes NO TIME AT ALL to rinse out clean, and if you wash your hair with shampoo with a little bit of Baking Soda in it BEFORE applying the dye, it will stick a MILLION TIMES BETTER, and rinse in cold water, or at least coolER water.
Cover your pillowcases and everything else.

Color stained everything unlike most semi-permanent color during and after application.I couldn't even sweat during workouts or my towel would be red. Any hair product application I tried I ended up with red fingertips. I was so glad when it faded entirely after several washes.
