    I go back to work in a H.S. next monday, and the color in my hair that I thought would be gone by now isn't. My hair is pink and i don't wanna dye it again. It's bleached and has manic panic (or something like that) for color. Anyone know a good way to get it out??????

    Hey hey, nice pic Joe!

    I'm pretty sure theres special shampoo's to rinse out none-permanant hair colouring.

    Also, My late hairdresser told my mate that using ketchup would rinse it out, this was about 2 years ago when we had left school so thought we'd all dye our hair too (with none perminant coluring, the stuff you get in a small cylindric pot).

    Joe you need to ask a pro. I know there are many temporary color kits, maybe they can point you to one that wont damage your locks.

    go back in time and slap yourself right before you decide to color it such a silly color. ;)

    Why? I can understand you not wanting to Bleach it again, but if you go to a darker colour it should be simple and painless.
  7. Can't you just use a temporary dye of a darker color? When it comes off, it should take the pink with it, no?

    or....... if my memory serves me correctly, Dr. Mike will be cutting all his hair off this week. Grab the offcuts and glue em to your head........

    Im thinking of bleaching and going pink just like that except a bit messy and uneven.

    That being said I heard its not too hard to get tat manic panic stuff out. Try some special shampoo if all else fails.

    Is it a problem for the school, or do you just wanna change it back to normal?

    dye it darker.
    or use colour stripper (NOT bleach) which you can find at any good beauty supplies store.
  14. shave your head
  15. Dye it a darker color, and if you bleach Joe, you will regret it; you'll be poodle pink!!

    i am a teacher. i hate being a teacher. i therefore traded my original teaching job in for that of a substitute teacher. now i really get respect! :D actually, i've been at the same H.S. school for 7 years now, everyone knows me, and i DON'T have to deal with a lot of the garbage that other subs often do. my job has become fun. it pays OK, i get home at 2:30, get three 45 minute lunch periods a day - and i get to NOT go to work whenever I don't want, for however long i don't want, without anyone batting an eye. it's a great way to pay bills if yer love is in the arts/but your not yet earning your keeps at it.
  19. Hey if the students can look like freaks, why can't the teachers? The right-wingness in the educational is too much, we should just admit it that hiding our minds from our "fashion" is self-deprecating and wrong.We all should be able to express our visual individuality and be comterfable with it in any situation. American soceity is like a white box full of porno mags, the more we look at the box we want to know whats in it and that perverses the inner self.

    the principal at my school is ULTRA-conservative. she's made the pages of the NY-post several times for her "wicked" ways. i was asked once to please dress more appropriately for work. i like my job, so i shall obey. it's not too much of a sacrifice.

    i kinda like the principal too because she's a rebel in the opposite direction. she has more balls than, uhh... a golf course????
