Protect Your Sensitive Scalp From Hair Dye
Many people experience an irritated, red, and itchy scalp from the chemicals in hair dye. You can help protect against this by not getting color if you have any scratches or abrasions on your scalp. If you do, just wait until they heal. There's an old trade secret that can protect your scalp from getting irritated from the chemicals in hair dye. Take two packets of Sweet 'N Low sugar substitute and combine with 1 ounce of skim milk. Add this mixture to your hair color formula before applying it to your scalp. This will prevent any redness or irritation associated with chemical hair dye. Salons do this so be sure to ask if your colorist does and you can also do this yourself with your at-home color as well. Adding this mixture to your hair color will help neutralize the harmful effects of preservatives and chemicals present in the hair color.
