EllyAnne :  

I have to correct my post.  I always cut from the bottom up after I’ve stretched it out for the scissors.  I don’t think it matters except to my wrists that would be very sore if I did it the other way round.  I put my husband and kids in front of the TV and let them choose a movie to watch while I cut.  I’m quicker now, but at first it was a long experience as I touched up etc.  My haircuts still aren’t super fast.  About twenty minutes start to finish.  I use a spray bottle too to keep it damp.  Good luck!

I don’t remember.  I read that most ammonia free formulas use chemicals that form ammonia after mixing or alternatives that are just as damaging.  The “safe” salon dye did awful things to my hair so I just went with my gut trying box colors.  I tried feria.  Awful.  So bad that I had to strip it off.  I tried loreal… whatever their popular line is.  Wouldn’t cover my greys and it costs twice as much as other brands.  I tried Garnier nutrisse.  It’s ok.  Rougher on my hair.  So I asked a woman who had really healthy looking hair what she used or which salon she went to.  She said, “,Oh, I just use Revlon Colorsilk.  It’s five bucks a box.” That was that.  Best results I’ve ever gotten.  I know salon stylists hate box colors and they go on about the ammonia.  But the salon dye ruined my hair and it wouldn’t stop streaking when I went back to let my hairdresser fix it.  They tried three times.  Box dye is my jam now.

gimmepretty :  I wanna color my hair during this lockdown but I’ve always been chicken to do it on my own. I have natural  dark brown hair and I know that for someone with dark hair, I’m not gonna get the same exact color on the model in front of the box. I don’t wanna accidentally color my hair too dark either so perhaps I should get the lightest brown color available to be on the safer side?

jellybellynelly :  I think there’s a comfort factor to it as well, not just the vanity aspect.  My husband has insanely thick hair and the minute it starts to tickle his ears, he goes nuts.  

OP to answer your question, no, I haven’t.  Last time my  husband let me cut his hair, he ended up with a mohawk.  So, I’ve been banned for life from cutting his hair.  If he gets desperate enough, he’ll just buzz it off.  lol

Here’s a color chart.  My color isn’t listed, lol!  I use “lightest golden brown.”. It works well for people like me that have natural red tones.  You probably would want a more true brown.  You might do well with “medium brown.”. I also got a “lift” cream for highlighting that’s made by Garnier nutrisse.  I did my own highlights a couple times and it’s easy to use but I just decided to not bother anymore.  It’s not hard, though.

I’ve cut the spouse’s hair twice now since the “Stay at Home” order started. The first thing he did with the order was order clippers from Amazon.  He’s a therapist and needs to look good on telehealth. He also wears a religious head covering all the time, so only the sides show, it would look weird if it was too long.

I did and it was not a very bad job at all. There was one or two spots to be fixed. The next day my husband went to the bathroom to fix it, but accidentally buzzed it. 😁

We did my husband’s hair and it looks great! We just used a size 4 guard on the clippers and did the whole head. I don’t think he ever needs to go to the barber again haha!

jellybellynelly :  while some people aren’t working plenty of people are still having to go to work or are working from home. My husband has just as many meetings as normal just via video conferencing so the “who even sees you argument” hardly applies for most.  Plus for men cutting their hair is equivalent to basic hygiene for many women, just because no one sees you doesn’t mean most people don’t wash their face and brush their hair most days, maybe stick on some lip balm.
