I'm new to dying my hair wild colors and I was just wondering when it says don't apply to scalp...why is that? and can I do it anyway?? lol Cause it's kind of hard to dye the roots of your hair with out getting any on your scalp...

You don't ever want to massage dye or bleach into your scalp. Also, the color will stain your skin. I've heard that the more intense body heat closer to your head makes the dye more intense there...but I don't really agree.

I honestly wouldn't worry too much about the scalp thing. Yes, it stains but its your scalp, covered by your hair. You can probably live with it till your body does its job and sheds skin, it'll be fine. You can use vaseline around your hairline + ears if you don't want any embarrassing "hey I just dyed my hair like a toddler with a coloring book. lines? what lines..." business.

Just remember, it's a chemical and if you've got any sensitivities, allergies or scratches and such you can imagine it's not fun. Most dyes recommend allergy tests and some say just don't go there at all, but unless you've got a very precise friend, it's really hard to get so close by yourself. So again, so long as everything's groovy with your skin/scalp, you'll be fine

as for the intensity and body heat thing, it matters only a very little bit in dying but it's a very important point for bleaching. Heat does wonders for chemical reactions, which is why when dying or bleaching hair you want to apply to the ends first and then work upwards to the roots (this of course applies differently if you're doing some special effect like you mentioned before). But again, the difference your body heat would have on most hair dye isn't much unless you're radiating some serious heat. It does, however make a big difference when bleaching as it effects how fast the chemical processes.

hope this helps.

Hi.
I'm planning on donating my hair soon and was wondering whether short hair would look good on my face shape.
I was thinking of hair similar to this:

This is a picture of me:

All I know is that my face is either square or diamond shaped, but I'm not really sure.
I'm pretty much a hair virgin so I'm kind of apprehensive of how it's gonna turn out, but I know that somebody else need my hair much more than I do.
Oh. And my hair is very thick.
I'd like to hear some feedback please. :]
Thanks.

i think a short cut would definitely suit you, you have a diamond shaped face & i think a short cut would enhance your features a lot more  Smiley hope that helps!

HOYL EYES!!
yes Yes YES short hair would look awesome on you Smiley Those eyes are fab, and you would really be showcasing them with a short cut. I actually really like the pic you posted, too. Almost like a cross between a shag and a pixie... Other than that, I could totally see yuou rocking a faux-hawk, but it depends how brave you are - not everyone can pull off this style.

And kudos to you in donating all that gorgeous thick hair to a worthy cause. I'm hoping that we can raise enough for my aunt to get a wig Smiley

Thanks everyone! That really helped a lot!
Lol. I don't know if I could wear a mohawk, I'm pretty laid back, but I'll consider it if I get bored with whatever I have. xD
