Hey folks. Really sad post today. The manufacturer of the amazing hair dye you’ve seen at Wildilocks for a decade and a half, Special Effects, just called us and informed us they are mothballing. That means they are stopping manufacturing, effective immediately, and shipping out all their currently available stock, and then more will not be manufactured for the foreseeable future. They didn’t discount the possibility they might start up again, but for now, they are shuttering their doors and this means we will not be able restock colours in the very near future. I’m not super surprised about this, as I had trouble placing orders over the last few months – more than usual, that is.
So what this means is – I’m placing our final ever order in about 12 hours from now. You can PRE-ORDER some colours that have been out of stock and they should arrive in about 2-3 weeks. After that, we can order no more from the manufacturer. The size of that order will depend on pre-orders. If you get your order in within this 12 hour period, you will be guaranteed the items you order at the price you ordered at. After this time, prices may increase as any remaining stock basically become collectors’ items. That has already happened with Atomic Pink, which we cannot order now.
This is the end of an era. We have loved Special Effects so much (though not ordering from them, that process has always been like pulling teeth). We love our other brands, Directions and Arctic Fox, and have no plans to be changing our stocking of these brands and have never had issues with ordering from these companies. We also are very close with finishing the new website design and will finally have Arctic Fox in the new webstore – been very slack about adding it to the old one knowing it was going to be decommissioned soon!
So please head over to the Special Effects page and place your final orders folks!
