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.

Hi Jaera!      sisihastwobunnies is right. It's perfectly fine for you to have a crush, but you're a little young for a "love life." Don't worry though! Someday, if it's meant to be (Ha ^-^) you'll find the one who's just right for you. Until then, it's great to have good guy friends -and in years to come if one of those friendships develop into something more, then props to you (:  Future advice: You have to understand that feelings aren't always mutual. You may like someone and they'll see you only as a friend -or vice versa.  THIS IS OKAY.  It may hurt, but that's just proof that you'll have to move on. Something better is ahead,  you simply haven't gotten there yet (: Having patience can be hard, but it's worth it. Good luck! -And I hoped this helped!                                    Wishing you the best,                                             american_brit ^-^
