21  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegetarian Recipe Collection..post yours! on: July 29, 2006 11:30:33 PM
Am I the only vegetarian ever to absolutely HATE tofu?

Have you ever tried cooking with tempeh instead?  It's made out of fermented soybeans and the texture is much more appealing than tofu.

I was bored with my hair, so I attacked it with an assortment of leftover dyes.  I think it's Virgin Rose, Fishbowl, Manic Panic Ultraviolet, and a bit of some other Manic Panic pink dye.  Manic Panic has never worked well for me, but the SFX dyes I had wouldn't be nearly enough.

I've been thinking about black with a blonde or red underlayer.  Now, would that be possible with layers?

Thanks,
~K

It's possible, just a little harder than doing an underlayer on long hair.  If you make the top layer too small, it looks like you're wearing a funny-looking cap on your head.   What I've done before is separated my hair in a straight line at my temples (or whatever, depending on the effect I want), applied the bleach to the upper portion and then I took small sections of hair from the bottom layer and bleached streaks of that.  You'd want to do oppositely, of course.  What that seems to do is softens that blunt edge and gives you less of the funny-looking cap appearance.

Ditto on the not a waif thing... but I'm a firm believer in the fact that people who aren't twiggy-esque can still pull off short hair.

I've been wanting to henna my hair for a while, and I think I'm going to start the growing out process come fall.  I really want to dye it all pinkish purple for summer, but I guess we'll see how my work feels about that.

Marmalade- I feel your pain.  I got my hair cut yesterday and the hairdresser cut my hair a lot shorter than I asked for... my hair was boyish in the first place, but now I just look like a boy.  To cheer myself up, I did my makeup (Gasp!  I'm usually too lazy for makeup) and put on some funky girly earrings.  That's the great thing about boyish cuts... long hair just hides all the great crap you buy for your ears!

In my experience, semipermanent pinks and reds and such have alllwwaayyyss bled when I showered or swam.  It made no difference how well I rinsed it the first time or any other time after that.  When I dyed my hair virgin rose, it bled profusely in the shower and on my pillows for the first two weeks, but the color hardly faded at all.

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.

Hehe, I've definitely taken pictures from this thread to show to the hairdresser on more than one occasion... I can't help it that you all have great hair!

Hehe, I like to play with photoshop too.

I loovvveee your hair, grrrromit, especially with the orange in the last picture.  I confess, I'd hack my hair off exactly like that in a heartbeat if I were all... waif-y like you, haha.  Anti-waifs don't look so great in that cut, I think (or maybe it's just me).

In other news, I'm dyeing my hair right now!  Nothing drastic, I'm just dyeing my faded fishbowl streak purple and going over my red-brown hair with brown.  I'll post pictures later.

Dandruff shampoo, cheap shampoo (it's more harsh on color than pricier shampoo), dish liquid (this'll make your hair feel like straw, though), and baking soda mixed into a paste (and left on the hair for a bit) will all fade your hair a bit.  Just yesterday I dyed my hair auburn after having green in the front and I had been washing my hair at least 10 times a day for the last couple days.  Eek, my poor hair.  With any of these methods, make sure you condition WELL.

If all else fails, a soapcap is more gentle than bleaching or stripping your hair.  Here's what a LJ community says about how to do one: "Mix equal parts of bleach and developer to equal parts of a moisturizing shampoo.  Apply to hair, cap with a plastic cap or bag, apply heat with a hair dryer and check after 10 minutes."

Thanks!  That Sweater Design In Plain English sounds like the perfect books for me.
