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 Good Housekeeping Institute breaks down why: "Other than henna, any commercially available hair dye store_bought for home use or found in salons uses chemical actives for them to work," says Birnur Aral, Ph.D., Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute's Health, Beauty and Environmental Sciences Lab. "By and large, these chemicals are synthesized substances." Even when the packaging claims to be all_natural, organic or chemical_free which is literally impossible because everything, including organic things, are made of chemicals that could basically be an outright lie. This is because the FDA can't do anything about the use of these terms regarding cosmetics.
