Right, gonna sound really stupid, but finally plucked up courage to dye my hair, i've done wash in-wash out ones before and i've never had a reaction, now trying a permenant one and i've done the allergy test and the strand test.

am i being a bit paranoid in worrying about an allergic reaction after reading stuff?

if i'm this worried should i leave it??

just really fancied a change as i'm on a new start/new me kick.

Do it !

Compared to the thousands of people who dye their hair everyday, its only a small number of people who react badly to it. You've done an allergy test so I think you'll be fine.

Enjoy and embrace the change smile

Put some vaseline on your ears and hairline first if it's a dark colour grin

my dd wants to dye hers. had to a explain to a very upset 3 yo that she wasn't old enough yet.

lol my DD didn't like it when I dyed mine black she wanted it back to brown - v.unadventurous! She however wants ginger hair like her cousin instead of her gorgeous blond naturally highlighted hair that women all over the country pay £££ for - she is a taste free zone so I chose to ignore her opinions on my fashion choices grin
