Do you dye your own hair? Aside from a few times when I got highlights (terrible idea), I’ve always gone the DIY route. Once you get over the initial fear of changing your own hair color it’s surprisingly easy to do. Here are two tips to make the process more successful. One of them I already do, the other I’m starting the next time I put on those flimsy plastic gloves.
1. Line your hair line (including at the nape of your neck and behind your ears) with petroleum jelly. This will prevent any staining of your forehead from errant drops of dye. If you do get any dye on your skin, use a clarifying shampoo on a cotton ball to wipe it off.
2. Set the time from when you start putting the dye foam or gel in your hair. Otherwise you risk leaving it on too long and ending up drying out your tresses.
