11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: June 02, 2006 11:19:03 PM
One thing that I noticed that helped is putting the dye on dry hair even if the instructions say to put it on towel dried hair.  The color seems to bleed a lot less that way.

I have no answers for chlorine, though.  Chlorine is hell on hair dye, which sucks because I plan on swimming excessively this summer.

I agree about putting the dye on hair when it's dry.  Not only is it less of a hassle for me, the dye seems to last longer (and I pre-bleach a few times a year to help it stick).

As for the chlorine, I'm betting it'll have a negative effect on the color in the long run.  (The sun used to fade mine too, but I'm a big hat wearer now--I mean that both ways--I wear big hats and I wear them often!)  Most fun color dyes are largely heavy duty conditioners, so if the chlorine will take oils out of your hair from regular conditioner, it'll probably do the same to the colors, but they normally last longer in my hair than regular conditioners.

Perhaps it's time for some crafty swimming caps?  It'd be nice if I could get my head under the water now and again--my sun hats don't like diving too much!

Yes--you wouldn't be the first either!  At least one challenge had a non-US winner.

Very flattering new hairdo!

My hair is flat on the top and curly on the bottom, weird eh?

Mine does that too--for me it's the weight of my long hair that pulls the top straight, and the ends that don't have so much weight pulling them down curls up.

Brilliant!  Now I know what to do with my sad more-than-a-decade old DMs!

So you dye the ends, and when your done with the fun colors you only cut that part off....  Smiley

I don't know much about color, so I can't give you advice on that.  Undecided

The color's the easy part on this one--most fun colors are really just long-term conditioners.  The chemicals in the bleach are the tricky part.  Definitely post pics!

Special Effects Hair Dyes (suggested above) are really heavy duty conditioners, so it might be less irritating than a traditional supermarket dye.

Bleaching your hair will damage it a bit, but if you use a dye like Special Effects (my personal fav), it actually helps your hair, rather than damaging it more.  Basically it's a long-term conditioner.  Your hair may feel a bit bad after bleaching but it will feel better after you color it. Yeah!!!

I've been a Sonic Green person for years--it's a nice dark green-teal kind of color, sticks for well over a month, (their pink lasted for at least 2 months).  I used to use Directions brand "Alpine Green", and at some point I experimented with Manic Panic.  Directions was ok--3 maybe 4 weeks between prime color and "boy I should reallllyyy re-dye it", Manic Panic washed out in like two weeks.

I re-dye when necessary, re-bleach only once or twice a year.  I once had a college classmate ask me how I got the roots to grow in so dark...  um, brown is my natural color...
