In the long line of parenting skills I’m sadly lacking, hairdressing is near the top. This week witnessed another hair disaster. My son spoke the dreaded words a few days ago. “Can you help me sort out a fancy dress costume…..”. All went surprisingly well until it came to the hair.
A change of hair colour was required.
A can of temporary hair dye was purchased, and carefully applied. Bingo it’s the right colour, job done.
Unfortunately I missed the small print on the can, in particular the lines “apply sparingly” and “apply in short bursts, with only a few seconds application required to successfully dye hair”.
Maybe using the whole can up in one application was a bit overkill…
Well a few days later, multiple hair washes have failed to remove the temporary hair colour from my son. The hair spray also does a really good job of permanently changing the colour of pillows and bed sheets.
I’m betting that the temporary hair colour will outlast the first garden flowers of the year.
