Use a shower cap : Once all color is on (but before you wander around) cover hair with a disposable shower cap to keep dye from dripping and staining. Then you can feel free to prep dinner or Netflix_binge. Get extra gloves : You slipped on the box's plastic gloves to protect your hands while putting on the dye, but you need to wear them while washing it off too. Have a fresh pair ready in case you can't reuse the originals. A tester who forgot ended up with seriously stained fingers!
The FDA regulates cosmetics via the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, neither of which define the term "organic." In other words, if you see hair dye that isn't henna and it claims to be organic or natural, it's "most likely still employing synthetic ingredients for it to work," Dr. Aral says. The good news: Hair dye doesn't have to be organic or natural in order to be safe, and there are other ways to be both health_ and eco_conscious when it comes to coloring your hair.
