I have never worn lenses before, how do I begin?
Applying Contact lenses will become second nature once you have practiced a few times. Depending on the person depends on how they may wish to insert their contact lenses. First of all you should wash your hands thoroughly, then you should remove one contact from its case. You should then place the contact on the index finger you’re most comfortable with using then gently pull your skin away from your eye, you should then look up and move the contact towards your eye calmly and steadily, gently placing the contact lense on your eye. You must then let go of the skin around your eye and let your eyelids fall over the lenses and blink slowly so as not to dislodge the contact – repeat the process with the other contact.

It is especially important in situations where the hair is damaged, over processed, or the intention is to attempt a dramatic alteration to the color of the hair.
How do I know if I’m allergic to hair dye?
1, Select a small test area, about the size of a quarter, behind the ear or in the inner fold of the elbow.
