How young is too young for dyed hair?

My son is 12, and he's set on dying his hair jet black. I'm not sure what reasons I should give if I tell him no, or what consequences may arise if I tell him yes. I'm hoping to hear from some of you with experience raising, teaching, or being a child like this. [more inside]

How can I transition from dyed to gray when the gray is just emerging?

How can I keep bright red dyed hair looking fresh as long as possible?

I'm going to dye my hair bright, bright red. I've always wanted to do this color but have avoided it because I know that red tends to be the fastest-fading of the superbright hair colors. What can I do, beyond what I'm already planning, to make sure that it lasts as long as possible? [more inside]

What stuff do I use on my newly blue hair?

Yesterday i dyed my hair blue underneath my regular blonde. I am normally very low maintenance, like wash and go, and didn't really think through how to take care of it. Looking for specific suggestions on products I can pick up today or order online that will keep the blue as blue as possible. Should I try dry shampoos? I honestly have just been using aussie shampoo since the 80s, so trying to find a new product seems oversized. I was told to keep the blonde and blue separate when I wash my hair, like put the blue in a ponytail, wash the blonde and put conditioner on it, and then wash the blue. If anyone has managed to do this, tips for this also welcome.

Best product for darkening very short male hair?

I've been cutting my hair very short, and discovered that while I didn't mind my graying hair when it was a normal length, it is much grayer-looking when cut this close and does not look good in combination with my untanned white scalp. Can someone point out good hair color products for white guys with extremely short hair? [more inside]

Color after henna

So, I used Lush henna on my hair about a year ago. It has taken that long for it to grow out and now only my ends remain the henna-d color. My roots are beginning to gray so I have a box of semi-permanent hair color I'd like to use but I'm afraid of what will happen to then ends if I use it. Is it safe?
