Dear Dish-it: Hair Dye Disaster!

Apr 12, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

I tried this new dye but it ended up all on my forehead. When I went to school everyone snickered at me, and it's still going on. How do I put on dye correctly and stop the laughter at my school?

Dear DyeDistaster,

Don't worry about the kids at your school. They'll forget about your botched hair dye in no time. As for giving your hair the perfect dye job, your best bet is to go to a salon and have a professional hair stylist do it for you. They can help you pick the perfect color for your complexion and ensure that your dye won't stain your face.

Use a Helper

If you'd prefer to dye your hair at home, get a helper. They'll be able to see your face and neck from angles that you might miss. That way you can wipe the hair dye off your skin before it stains. Use hydrogen peroxide and a cotton ball to remove the dye from your skin as soon as possible. 

Protect Your Skin

Another preventative measure is to use face cream or vaseline on your forehead (and don't forget your ears!) before you begin dyeing. However, make sure it doesn't touch your hair. Place cotton balls into the cream/vaseline to soak up the stray dye. If it's too late and your hair dye has already dried on your skin, use Johnson's Baby Lotion or Baby Wipes to wipe it off.

Go for him, make a nice situation to understand what he feels about you, if he loves you and you are sure about him so go for him and dont lose him . Though I think such a friendship for you is too soon and it will be broken but it is worth trying .Soory, if I speak frankly , it is just my opinion nothing more.
