It can start when you’re a toddler with thick, extremely curly, blonde curls that have to be brushed into submission by an overzealous mother every night and plaited; if she can get you to stand still for long enough.

    Temporary short hair

    Normally, you love having luxuriously long hair, and you’ve been very patient waiting for it to grow to the desired length. The last thing you want is to cut it, but sometimes you think an outfit would look better with shorter hair, or you just want it out of the way during a heatwave. Fortunately, you can achieve this look without trimming a single hair. The faux bob is an easy way to style your hair short, and no scissors need to get involved. At most, you’ll only need to search the house for every hairpin you own.

    Temporary long hair

    Whether you’re happy having short hair, or you’re impatiently waiting for it to grow, sometimes it’s nice to have a night of showing off your long shiny hair. This temporary miracle is easily achieved with clip in hair extensions, which are cheaper and less time consuming than getting a weave. There are extensions to suit every color, and style of hair, so all you have to do is style it the way you want. On the other hand, what’s the point in having long hair for a night if you’re not going to let it flow free?

    Temporary color

    Perhaps you’re usually very conservative with your hair color; if you ever think about dying it, you always stick with something close to your natural shade. However, if you’re going to a concert, a festival, or you have an epic Halloween costume in mind, then it might be the right time to get a little crazy with your hair color. If you don’t want to commit to having blue hair, however, then there are a few solutions. You could try colored hairspray so you can wash it out later, or use semi-permanent hair color to decide if you want to make the look permanent later.

    Temporary big hair

    Despite all the volumizing hair products you use, it feels like you keep walking a fine line between flat hair, or a frizzy lion’s mane. Some stylists recommend sticking with short hair or getting a blunt trim to make your hair look like it has more volume, but if you’re hoping for a memorable style for a special occasion then there are a few sneaky ways to add volume to your hair. Dry shampoo, back brushing, and plenty of hairspray at the roots will keep your hair elevated for the duration of the evening. It might also help to curl the roots for a little extra bounce.

    Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Hair Care Collection & Brush

    Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Hair Care Collection & Brush
    I was waiting to add a little color to my hair before I went ahead to test and review this product. Anyhow, I got the color in but later regretted it. The color was not vibrant enough to my liking since I tried to do an at home thing with not sufficient time. Luckily enough I had this wonderful product from Hask that helped to reverse the feeling of my dry thirsty hair from dying.
    I immediately grab for the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Shampoo and apply a handful amount to my hair and scalp. My hair lathered in no time. I was loving the feeling of the Hask Shampoo rinsing the residue from my hair leaving my hair all clean and shiny.
    After shampooing I used the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Protection Conditioner which made my hair soft, manageable, shiny and smelling good. I followed up with the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner; I left it in my natural dyed hair for approximately 20 mins and covered with a plastic cap. After rinsing the product thoroughly from my hair I applied the Kalahari Melon Oil Protection Shine Treatment and blow dry my hair using the Hask brush.
    I love the Hask product line. It has tons of benefits for color treated hair and/or dry, damaged hair.
    This product is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors.

    Removing Hair Dye Color Stains

    hair dye color stains
    There are loads of other “old wives tales” out there when it comes to removing hair color from the skin. Though many of these will depend on how much color has seeped, how permanent the blend is and where it is located, one of these “home-tested” methods might just do the trick for you:
    • Dab a cotton ball or Q-tip in olive oil, and gently rub on the stained area until the colors fade.
    • Spray a bit of hairspray onto a cotton ball. Before the color has time to dye, rub the cotton ball onto the stained area of skin to break the bond of color to the skin.
    • Mix some baby oil and facial cleanser together, and apply to the stained area with a washcloth. Apply in a gentle, circular motion to exfoliate.
    • If your skin is not sensitive, you might even try a bit of nail polish remover on a cotton ball. Apply to the stained color to remove.
    To prevent hair dye stains use a hair protective oil or Vaseline around the nape of the head
