Vampire woman with blood on her face

Boo! Happy Halloween! Halloween is all about fun with friends, candy, and costumes. However that fun can turn from treat to nasty when a little bit of temporary mess in your hair becomes a big permanent problem. Want to know what to watch out for? Click the notes. –– Kelly Rowe

Stage Blood

Stage blood is horribly staining. It will stain your skin pink if left on for an extended period, so can you imagine what It will do to your hair? If you are planning on a vampire, zombie, or some other gory creature keep the blood on your skin, not in your strands. In the event that you do get it in your hair, rinse well with cool water and shampoo twice with a baking soda and shampoo mixture when your night concludes.

 

Silly String

Silly string is a lot of fun but it can be sticky and make terrible tangles in your tresses. If you get it in your hair, get as much out as soon as you can before your hair has the chance to twirl around it and knot. Make sure your hair is dry, wetting it, especially with hot water can make silly string more like glue.

 

Halloween Hair Color Spray

Although meant to be temporary this can be more permanent on blondes. Avoid highly pigmented shades like blue and shampoo with a clarifying shampoo as soon as the night is over.
