Buy Blue Hair Dye

September 9th 2012 14:02
When dying your hair blue, you want to make sure that you have your hair prepped first. If you are using a light blue, you'll need to bleach your hair first; if you're using a dark blue, you don't necessarily have to bleach your hair, unless you have really dark hair.

Just keep in mind that if you don't bleach your hair, you may notice that blue dye will turn green quickly.

Once you've bleached your hair, wash and condition your hair. If you hair is yellow after bleaching, you may want to tone it, as well.

Dry your hair thoroughly.

Now, follow the directions on the package. Don't use vaseline on your scalp, as it may get on your hair, which will result in hair that isn't blue or is oily. It's better to just wear old clothes and use medical tape around your scalp. You can use a washcloth to wash off the blue dye that gets on your skin.

The general rule with dying your hair "odd" colors, is that the longer the dye sits, the better the color will set. Some claim that sleeping with the dye in won't hurt your hair.

The dye will set in wet or dry hair, but if you blow dry your hair, the dye will penetrate into the hair shaft, and it will be more intense and will stay longer. So, you may want to use a hair dryer for about 15 minutes once every hour.

When you're ready to remove the dye, you want to seal it first. Use vinegar to seal in the color. Then, rinse out the dye with cold water.


Wearing Wigs

November 15th 2009 13:35

Wigs are great for many occasions, whether you're just looking for one for Halloween, or if you want to add something special to your clubbing outfit. Wigs have been popular throughout the ages for both men and women; in the 17th century, it was not uncommon to see men in white, powdered wigs and women with artificial hair.

Today, wigs are made from artificial hair, but there are many places that make wigs from real hair that has been donated. These wigs are very popular among cancer survivors during and after chemo treatments as they're waiting for their hair to grow back.

But, in a lot of cases, wigs are worn for fun. You can find them in a large number of colors that range from natural browns, black, blondes, and reds, but you can also find wigs online in pinks, glues, purples, greens, and other crazy colors.

You can also find them in a variety of hair styles, ranging from long to short, straight to curly, and everything in-between. Wigs are fun and can make a great accessory whether you're looking for a Halloween wig or a clubbing wig, or maybe you just don't want someone to recognize you.

When you wear a wig, you don't have to be someone you're not. You just may be looking for something to add a little spice to things. Some people have a whole dresser-top full of wigs that they interchange on a regular basis. If changes up your look, and it gives people something to look forward to when you walk into a room.

You may want to consider buying multiple wigs in the same hairstyle but in different colors. This makes things fun because it'll look like you've just dyed your hair a different color. Be a blonde one week, pink the next, and then purple, then black. Mix it up.


Mohawks and Pictures of Mohawks

July 12th 2008 15:28
The mohawk is actually an old hair style that traces back to the Mahican tribes. They shaved the sides of their head, leaving a small strip at the top. The mohawk is considered a punk hair style, and you'll see it differently. Typically, though, you will see the sized buzzed, if not shaved clean, with a long center strip from the front of the scalp to the bottom of the hair line. This strip of hair is made to stand straigh up using various hair gels and hair sprays.

The more common type of mohawk is the feathered mohawk. Other types of mohawks include spike mohawks and reverse mohawks.

Typically, it is dyed various colors.

You will offten see the mohawk worn at a great height.

Of all the different styles of hair, the mohawk is a high maintenance style. The longer and higher you want your mohawk, the more maintenance you will have to do. It's not uncommon for at least 20 minutes of styling, brushing, combing, and twisting to occur.

But, once up, mohawks are pretty easy to keep up, so all the work on the front end will pay off in the end.

Anyway, check out these different mohawks.

Hair Dye and Crazy Hair Effects

Hair dye is a common practice amongst young and old. It's a fun way to change you look for a while or just cover up the grays. Hair dye can be permanent, semi-permanent, demi permanent, or temporary; all these hair color products, except for temporary color, suggest that you patch test and area of your hair before you completely cover your hair to determine if you're allergice to the product, and to determine whether the color is the color you're hoping for.

"Hair lightening," referred to as "bleaching" or "decolorizing," is a chemical process involving the diffusion of the natural color pigment or artificial color from the hair. This process is central to both permanent hair color and hair lighteners.

All "permanent" haircolor products and lighteners contain both a developer, or oxidizing agent, and an alkalizing ingredient as part of their ammonia or an ammonia substitute. The purpose of this is to:
* Raise the cuticle of the hair fibre so the tint can penetrate
* Facilitate the formation of tints within the hair fiber
* Bring about the lightening action of peroxide.

You can either dye your hair one solid color, or implement different effects by using multiple dyes. Special effects include highlighting and vivid, unusual hair colors such as green or fuchsia. Highlighting can range from temporary to permanent, depending on the type of hair dye you choose; the techniques required to apply highlighting can be difficult for an individual to perform upon him/herself. One can create looks that range from subtle highlights acquired during a day at the beach, to more dramatic looks, such as bold, chunky highlights.

The more exotic, bright dyes typically contain only tint, and have no developer. These are typically sold in punk-themed stores. Colors range from blood red to seafoam green to neon orange. Many of these shades are blacklight reactive, which make them even more appealing to clubbers.

If you have darker hair (medium brown to black), you'll want to use a bleaching kit prior to tinting your hair, in order to get the full effect of the color. If you have light hair, you may want to bleach your hair, as well, because the yellow pigments can make blue tinted dyes look green.

When coloring your hair, you may want to consider a professional hair colorist, as there are several mistakes that you could make, as well as some serious consequences.

The following are some of the problems that may occur as a result of applying hair color:
* Different color outcome compared to what was expected
* Breakage of hair strands
* Stain on skin from hair dye
* Lead acetate as a potential toxin. (Lead acetate is the active ingredient in gradual darkening products such as Grecian formula)
* Development of some forms of cancer (including leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, bladder cancer, blood cancer, and multiple myeloma)
* Allergic reactions due to the analine derivative and/or p-Phenylenediamine (PPD) found in permanent hair color.
