Most Helpful Positive Review I LOVE IT!!
I've used Unicorn Hair to dye my hair four times now. (See pics!) I have loved the result every single time!! Moonchild, Bunny & Strawberry Jam have been my colors of choice. My sister has also used the color Pony multiple times too & has always had an amazing result! She's done full head as well as highlights with it. I've done my 12 year old nieces hair twice with Chocolate Cherry, she's a natural brunette (Italian & Colombian) & her results are stellar too. The naturally lighter pieces near the bottom tips of her hair take on the color vibrantly & the rest or her hair has a hue to it that is particularly vibrant when she's in the sunshine. I could go on.. My 8 year old niece (natural light blonde) just had the tips of her hair done with Strawberry Jam/Pony & she is obsessed with it.
I have naturally dark blonde hair that I have highlighted. My hair is not bleached but it is lightened. You can see the starting point in the pictures for reference. I think it's important to point out that all hair pulls/deposits color differently and it's always a good idea to do a strand test. If you naturally have more warm tones the color will look different that someone with more ash in their hair. When I'm putting lighter colors onto my hair I leave them in for hours and when I am doing a really bright bold color, I tend to live it in for about an hour. Unless your hair is bleached snow white, you will not end up with any cotton candy hued colors. Keep that in mind. If you lighten your hair to an ashy silvery/blonde-you will not get pale baby pink. When I use bunny I get a gorgeous rose gold color. You must be starting with hair that is nearly pure white to get those super pastel colors. If your hair is dark-no matter how much dye you put on it pale pink won't show up. The vibrant, dark, bold colors will cover your brown with a gorgeous hue of color & are a great choice.
Color fades beautifully too! I'm a happy Unicorn Hair lover! Thanks Lime Crime & ULTA!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Very Mixed Review
Of the 27 colors, I used 18 of them. I listed below the ones I used, with their individual ratings. I dyed my hair on November 6 and I am writing this review on November 29th. I have washed my hair 3 times in that time period of 23 days. Also note that I let this dye sit on my hair for 3HOURS before rinsing it out.
5 Stars: Almost as good as the first dye
Leeloo - of the colors this has stayed the brightest and truest to when it was first dyed
Chocolate Cherry - Still very vibrant
Tweet - I am very surprised that this has stayed vibrant
4 Stars: Faded, but still strong
Anime - Still very bright, but seems duller
Blue Smke - Very true to its original color, but has faded
Valentine - Not as bright red as original, but still bright, looks a lot like the Chocolate Cherry when it fades
3 Stars: Bad Fade out
Strawberry Jam - Very light now, hard to make it out
Jello - Very pale, looks like mint faded
Dirty Mermaid - pale and hard to differentiate
Pony - Very pale and superpatchy fade out
2 Stars: Good at first, then faded out of existence
Kawaii - faded to a pale pink very quickly
Neon Peach - I loved this color out of the packet and after the rinse, but I have no idea where it is now
Bubblegum Rose - This faded to the color of what Bunny should have been, then disappeared after the second wash
Salad - faded much like Jello, just much faster
1 Star: What happened?
Bunny - Very patchy application and after first wash was completely gone
Mint Ice - Same as with Bunny, looked decent when applied, but after rinse it was barely noticeable and after first wash it was gone
NO Stars: Where is the pigment?
Cloud - When I put this on my hair, I did a wth moment. I could see the color in the dye, but when I put it on my hair, it's like it literally disappeared as I was rubbing it in. There was no color payout at all.
Moonchild - This was exactly the same as Cloud, only there was a very slight color tint
Reviewed by 551 customers Not great for medium brown hair
SerSer from Maryland
I wasn't expecting it to be bright pink on my light-medium brown hair with grey "highlights", it was very subtle though, even on the greys. It took two, thirty minute applications, and one hour long one for me to notice it. No one I saw the next day seemed to, no one said anything. Okay I suppose, not in the mood to bleach so I know, this just isn't the right shade, try something darker next time. The worst part is, two+ hours of work went down the drain in two washes.
I will be buying this again!

This hair color smells so good and leaves your hair soft even right after bleaching. The pigment is perfect!
Angel from Ft Worth, Tx
I'm not a fan of this company to begin with but I got the dye for Christmas and didn't want to waist it.
I have strawberry blonde hair and when I applied a little over 3/4 of the jar I was met with a 'lovely' green/grey. I left it in for about an hour and a half sooooo...
It's a dark blue dye and it turned out GREEN/GREY, I've dyed my hair in the past but it's been long enough for the previous dye to be gone.
I don't recommend this unless you like unpleasant surprises!
Best hair temporary hair color I have tried!
amarie from lafitte, la
I used the sea witch color and left it in for an hour and a half. My hair is bleached blonde with a brown shadow root and the color stuck to my hair really well. It is super easy to apply just make sure to section your hair and USE GLOVES! It will stain anything but can be removed as long as you do not let it sit. The color is very vibrant on my blonde and actually darkened my shadow root to make it look more black. The darker part washed out within a week but the blonde part has gradually started to fade from an almost emerald green to a lighter teal color which is still pretty. The best part about this product is no damage was caused.
tequilaurrr from San Jose, CA
I loved how pigmented this stuff is!!! My hair has a tendency of fading out fast because I wash it a lot (which I shouldn't I know >_< ), but it made my lame peachy pink look soooo vibrant and just like advertised and I didn't even leave it on full the full 30! Smelled pretty good too!
allie from riverside ca
This dye is seriously awful. My hair was basically white and I put one of the darker colors on my hair called aesthetic. I didn't dilute it or anything. It turned my hair brown and grey in some parts. Not one bit of it was the shade it should have been. I dye my hair alot and love trying new brands but this stuff is awful and I will never try another color. They need to stick to makeup and discontinue this hair color. Only giving one star because atleast it smelled good.
LJ from Orange County, CA
This color is vibrant and beautiful. This is the second time I've used Lime Crime to color my daughter's hair. Both times have produced great results. I bleached her hair to a light blonde and this color grabbed great! We left it on for an hour and then she did a cool/warm water rinse only then did conditioner. She's received many compliments on the color.
taylor from ny
i bought this because my hair was fading its color and i wanted to spice it up and get a fun color. this did nothing!!! i followed the exact instructions on the sheet and all it did was stain my scalp hot pink. it didnt pick up on any of my hair which was so weird i even went over a little bit to get full color pay off. on for like 40 minutes. im so disappointed
So vibrant and fun!
Annie from Phoenix, AZ
I love this brand because it smells SO GOOD! The colors are fun and bright, and they fade nicely so your hair isn't weird shades. The anime blue was more aqua-green than blue, but also might just be my hair. I used half a tub to dye my full hair, so I still have one more complete dye left.
I left this in for 2.5hrs, and the color is staying much longer than when I dyed my hair with this before (1hr, about 1 week). I love that it's gentle, so leaving it in for a while only improves the color and doesn't damage hair.
I would totally recommend if you're looking for something fun that will wash out in a week or two. And really, the smell is amazing!!
This color will not be easy to take off
Shellbear from Houston, Tx
This dye slaps on so well IF you have prebleach hair. Oh and the color is so bright and beautiful but it's a tough one to get out. The one I got was supposed to be a dark maroon but it was purple pink. The color is very vivid.
The box swatches are false
Disappointed Gremlin from Oregon
I was trying to use to get the beautiful pastel color that was advertised, I did not even have it in for long before it became the most obnoxious orange coral pink mess ?? And yes, my hair was bleached as platinum as can be and it still was orange. I'm definitely going back to Arctic Fox... I thought I'd try them again since I wasn't impressed by how fast my purple faded from them, but it was a mistake
Love love love
Pebbles from Arizona
Easy to use right out of the jar, colors are always bright and vivid through multiple washes. I always leave it on for 2 hours and get the max color. And it smells delicious!!
VERY VERY PINK
Glo from Milwaukee, WI
I have platinum hair (aside from some root growth) and the bubble gum pink is VERY pink. However, it applies rather streaky, which gives it cool highlights.
not full coverage
brit from tacoma wa
besides making my hair smell really good, this really didn't do anything to my hair. I have a dirty blonde tint to my hair, and thought my entire head would change, nope, just the blonder parts turned orange. not worth the money, just go get real hair dye instead of semi permanent.
a from maryland
pretty color, doesn't fade easily but was darker than i anticipated
I'm not allergic!
Sam from Texas
I'm allergic to so many permanent hair dyes! I can use this without worry! I mix it with conditioner and let it sit for roughly 30 mins before rinsing it out and my hair looks great! I use Sea Witch and Charcoal as I can't use permanent black hair dye. The Sea Witch tint stays in my dark hair for a while but can only be seen in sunlight. It gives more dimension to my hair. I use it maybe every other week so it is a lot of up-keep but until I find a permanent hair dye I can actually use- this is my go-to hair color!
Great for full coverage Chocolate Cherry color
Mry from Arizona
A month after applying the color is still very vibrant. Shampoo bubbles are still very pink but it's finally stopped staining the shower & towels.
Bad reviews due to user error
Jen from NC
I don't understand these bad reviews. No matter what color you use, you should know that if you don't have platinum hair, your results are going to vary a bit. The number of people saying they used blue on top of their bleached hair and got green is ridiculous. If your hair is bleached to a yellow-blonde, then what do you expect? Yellow + blue = green. Undertones matter! This is going on top of your hair color, so expect your starting color to show through a bit, especially if you're using a light color. Additionally, for those saying they did not have the color show up much: did you bleach first? It doesn't matter if your natural hair color is light; virgin hair is often not very porous. This color is a direct dye, which means it does not process your hair. It simply deposits the color on top. Bleached hair is more porous and therefore absorbs color much better. If you have natural light brown hair, you're likely not going to have much color show up, because your hair already contains brown pigments, and it is not porous. On the other hand, if you have dark brown hair and bleach it to a light brown shade, you'll have results more like what you're probably expecting. I've also seen photos on here where people show their hair while coloring it and then show their results where their color hasn't changed much. You need to saturate your hair with the color! If you hardly put any dye on, the color is not really going to soak in. You want to soak your hair with the color. When in doubt, use more than you think. And patchy results are due to patchy application. Comb the color through after. Make sure you apply it to all the hair. If you do large chunks, you might miss pieces of hair in the middle. And don't be afraid to leave this color on longer! It doesn't damage your hair; if anything it helps it, since it is a lot like a conditioner (albeit an extremely highly pigmented one). You'll get better results if you leave the color on longer since it has more time to soak in.
Great for people who already have red hair!
Alyssa the Red Head from Tucson, Arizona
This semi permanent dye is great for those who already have red hair! I get my hair done at a salon every 4 months and I love this product to help keep it red. It lasts a nice red for 2-3 weeks! I basically follow the instructions, and leave it on for about 2 hours then rinse out and condition. This product is inexpensive but yields great results! I wouldn't recommend for someone who doesn't plan on keeping your hair red because red is a hard color to wash out completely. About half a jar is enough for my long hair.
Favorite coloring product!
Kaite from Illinois
I like this product a lot! It smells so good and the color is really, really nice. It is easy to apply, even though it can and will permanently stain clothes and furniture, so be careful (: The only negative thing I have to say about it is the fade is a little unpredictable. The color fades beautifully and will guaranteed fade completely but the time it takes to do so is unpredictable. I used the Bubblegum Rose shade and it was faded in a week, but I used the Valentines shade which took a month or two to start fading. It depends a lot on the amount of product you use and how much time you keep it on. Lots of variables (: Overall very good!!
Sam from Prov ri
Love this. Came out very vibrant and lasts well
red from rancho cucamonga
honestly, i expected only a tint of color. i used to have my hair platinum & used manic panic colors gor years. loved that i could switch it up easily. when covid hit, i couldn't go to sal8n, so i stopped bleaching (i will not do it myself). my natural color is strawberry blonde-ish. omg was i excited when i rinsed the mauve out, that i had beautiful saturation!!! i was stunned & sooo happy. with manic panic, the color wouldn't ever saturate my natural color. i would've given 5 stars if it didn't wash out so fast. EVERYONE including my boss keeps telling me to do that color again. i will def buy again!
Super happy with the product.
Skyblueplaid from Connecticut
Bleached dk brown hair 2x that had easily 5 layers of color. Put pony on too, anime on bottom. Slept in it with my head wrapped in saran wrap. Created a hard crust while asleep. My hair follicles had soaked up so much color it rinsed milk clear. Ended up coloring it one more time, same colors. Excellent coverage, depth, hues, shiny. And weirdly enough - my scalp stayed clean. However it will stain anything it touches.
I could use this product over and over!
Cheyenne Breeze from Benton, AR
I got this to transform from green to pink and purple. I used pony and chocolate cherry and I'm not disappointed at all. It looks amazing and took to my hair so well!
Addi from Greensboro, NC
Ok so I put the hair dye on and I think it's an ok blue. I let it sit for 2 hours. Wash it out. Green. Very green. I'm glad I only did the underside of my hair. My mom is color blind and even she could tell that it did not come out anime blue.. Now I'm just waiting to see how long it's going to take to wash out. Just go ahead and commit with Arctic Fox.
