Posted:I recently dyed my hair black and this is the first time I've dyed it since I started lighting up. Black hairdye takes a while to completely wash out of my hair, usually about a week and a half to two weeks of slightly bluish tinted shower runoff. Does anybody know if my hair is more likely to light when it it still having chemical residue oozing out of it? I'm smart enough to use light to no hairspray when I go to light up or to wet it all down a little, but do I need approach hairdye like it was hairspray and treat it with simmilar caution?

Oh yeah, and I'm really not a fan of the head-covering thing. I own a pretty blue and gold one but in order for it to look good my hair has to be down, which means it's still out there to light and thus makes the headcovering pointless...so I just go without and opt for a french braid or a bun.

So does anybody know my chemical status?

Posted:You could wear a hooded sweater and put your hair in the back, a friend of mine does that all the time.
Don't know if dyed hair catches fire more quickly though


Well how about that...

Posted:I don't think hair dye makes you any more flammable. I've never caught my head on fire anyway, and I regularly use both dye and gel (actually the gel's water based, so it might even make me less flammable).

Posted:I don't know about it makeing it more flamable. But some times dying your hair can make it more dry or frizzy so make sure you are aware of where it is.

Posted:I imagine dark hair dye would be much less likely to catch fire than blond hair dye with hydrogen peroxide.

But I really have no idea, just be sensible, I don't think you have any more to worry about than normal.
