I would love to dye my hair a really dark blue color kind of like this:
I previously tried manic panic after midnight over my natural hair color (a medium-dark brown color, always darker than any samples on the box). The color was pretty nice (if a bit greener than expected), but it faded completely after 2-3 washes. I've had great luck with manic panic on bleached hair previously, and they have an awesome color range, so needless to say I was disappointed.

Does anyone know any good dyes/techniques for this? I'm willing to do permanent or semi-permanent, as long as it sticks mostly for at least a month or so. I also would LIKE to avoid greenish blues if possible.
Any advice would be great!
