Mascara Wand for Hair Dying

It was 2 weeks ago that I discovered the most ingenius thing I’ve ever thought of: Using an old mascara wad to help me get the little hairs and eyebrows when I dye my hair.

All these years, and there have been a lot, that I have been dying my hair it never entered my mind to go get an old mascara wand to help me get the little hairs in the front that although I put dye on don’t seem to catch all of the time. When I was talking to R about how I hate that I always have some little hairs that don’t catch the dye despite it looking like the dye is on there I went and got my mascara I don’t like wiped off all of the mascara and used that. It worked so well.

Now I’ve decided that every time I’m about to throw away a mascara I’ll take the wand out clean it off, and put it away for the next time I dye my hair. Such an easy thing to reuse, and doesn’t take up much space.

I had to share my lightbulb moment with all of you… I hope it helps the next time you dye your hair.

  1. The best way to determine the color is to look at your eyes – the brown eyes will have flecs or lighter tones that compliment the skin tone. usually 3 to 4 shades of difference are plenty of lift & still cover cover and brighten and compliment. the best color that will actually cover all gray tones (there are many in each strand of gray and all gray is not uniform or gray there is white too) So as not to be spotted call around and ask who carries SOCOLOR by Matrix around a level 5 or 6.

  2. The first time I tried an at-home highlighting kit I managed to put a rather prominent “skunk stripe” right in front. For the first few weeks I used my regular mascara to blend in that stripe while it grew out a bit and became less noticeable. I never thought to use it *during* dying, either!

  3. I am going to try this the next time I color my hair. Thanks for the tip.
