Another Post on Hair Color?!?!

I know,I know, another post on hair color. It's not like I'm obsessed or anything. But I came across some good tips in an old issue of Family Circle Magazine (May '09)and I just had to pass them along!

*Use an old toothbrush to gently stroke your color onto the fine hairs around your face. (These are the ones that always go gray first on me!)

*Use chapstick around your hairline before you begin to prevent forehead stains. (I had read that petroleum jelly works too but that always seemed so messy.)

*Use a kitchen sponge to distribute color evenly once applied.

*If your skin gets itchy when using hair color, throw two packets of Sweet 'N Low in the color and shake it up. (Splenda and Equal don't work.)

*If your forehead gets stained use an astringet to remove hair color.

*If you're a sloppy gal, line your bathroom floor with trash bags to catch spills. (The first couple of times I colored my own hair I ruined a rug and put a stain on the floor. You'd think I'd learn...)

*There are a few more tips if you can find an old issue. (Your doctor's office maybe?)

I hope these tips help. I can't promise I'll never write about hair color again but really, I will try to find other topics to blog about. :)

Ooo - those are great tips! I color my moms hair for her, and I'm always getting some on her ears and neck. Next time I'm going to use chapstick! thanks!
