Really some people complain just to complain!

Honestly I hear some that have problems and I think it's because they are coloring on freshly washed hair, and not applying Vaseline around the hairline. Some aren't doing spot testing first either. So here are my tips for hair coloring.

1. don't wash your hair for one to two days before coloring. (that way your natural oils can help protect your scalp)

2. To prevent staining around your hairline put your hair up in a pony tail and apply a thin layer of Vaseline all around and on your ears before starting.

3. Test before trying a new product. You maybe sensitive to it.

4. Start with the minimum time then work your way up to a longer time. (my hair dresser always ends up going waaaaay longer than the maximum time even for her stuff so I know 45minutes at the least for me. My SIL just barely the minimum time.)

5. Lock the kids out when doing your hair. (trust me on that one!)

New Foam Hair Color by Clairol

Well I just finished coloring my hair. I used the Dark Brown, and may I say I am so far very pleased. Minus one peeve. I have very thick, coarse, straight, long hair. I purchased 2 boxes thinking I would need 2. I usually use 1 and 1/2 boxes for my hair. I usually drip color all over my bathroom and am a real mess. Not this time! I only used one box, and it really did cover my gray hairs. Usually the gray is colored, but still obviously gray. Also my hair is a true black so mostly I color for the gray and my black still looks black. Well this time my hair looks DARK BROWN! WOW! Perhaps next time I will try something with red tints see what happens. I have to say the smell was different from the average hair color. I think they were going for a floral scent, and the fumes were GAG! Strong to say the least. Man did my eyes water! But that's to be expected it is a chemical process after all.
My only real beef with this and all the other brands I've tried is there is not enough conditioner. Now that little packet covered a small patch of my hair at the bottom back. I ended up giving up trying to spread it around, and just went and used my regular leave in conditioner when I was done. You really do need to put more conditioner in these boxes. I mean those 2 packets are for now and later? Heck I could use both and barely have enough for my hair, much less for later.
I will have to see how long this lasts, and how my hair holds up. Who knows could all fall out tomorrow. ( as if I could be so lucky)
