If so, what brand was the dye? I have very very dark brown hair, almost black. I dyed it tonight with a box dye to a red purple colour, however you can hardly notice it! Has anyone used a red shade or a purple on dark hair successfully? Thanks
Dark hair colours like black are no pigment colours so nothing over rides them but you get a tinge instead. If it's dye colour that is dark you need to strip it leave a few days and if your natural hair is light enough you can dye over the top. The other option is peroxide it then red over top but that would be a last resort.
Some box colours include lighteners which would work better for dark hair. I think it bleaches it slightly so the colour takes better. Not sure which brands do that though, Schwarzkopf maybe. I think the permanent ones are more likely to have that additional aspect to it, rather than the semi's.
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
