Next topic. We need to talk about something, and it has to do with what to do with your EYEBROWS if you dye your hair darker.
The haircolor box says NOT to use the haircolor on your eyebrows or you WILL GO BLIND. But let's say you were all, "What does it matter if I can see, if all I can see is that my eyebrows don't match my hair?," and so you played it dangerous and put the stuff on your eyebrows. But it didn't even WORK! So you RISKED BLINDNESS for NOTHING!
In that case, I'll tell you what you SHOULDN'T do. DON'T buy a box of Just For Men Mustache and Beard Color. I thought you said you WEREN'T blinded the first time! Can't you see that it's for MEN and MUSTACHES and BEARDS? It is not for girl eyebrows! Just because it talks about how perfect it is for coarse, resistant facial hair doesn't mean it's for YOUR coarse, resistant facial hair, or that eyebrows are coarse and resistant and facial! Don't be stupid!
Besides, it's still hair dye, and just like other hair dye, it can cause PERMANENT BLINDNESS if you get it in your eyes. So it is CLEARLY marked that you should NOT use it for your eyebrows! So don't!
You might as well not even read further unless you're a MAN intending to use this product AS INTENDED.
Okay, guys, you know how haircolor kits have to be mixed all at once and then you can't use the stuff after an hour or it'll explode or whatevs? The beard and mustache kit is different. It has two little tubes, and you can mix exactly the amount you want on the little tray.
The whole process takes 10-15 minutes, so if I were a man I'd do this about 15 minutes before I'd normally get into the shower, and I'd already be wearing a bathrobe so I wouldn't have to pull a pajama top over my head with this stuff on my beard/mustache.
The instructions say not to use the little tubes to mix any more potion after 3 months, but the reason is "to ensure highest level of quality." That's insufficiently persuasive. Maybe if it were "because after 3 months this stuff will chaw its way through the plastic tubes and melt a hole in your linen closet shelves"---but it isn't, is it, it's just about highest possible levels of quality, which, pfff. And let's say I knew someone who was using it on, uh, a small mustache---yeah, not eyebrows but a mustache, a slightly-graying mustache exactly the size of two eyebrows, and that
It comes with a wee little brush, which is just perfect for using on your
ONLY do this to a MUSTACHE. Not an eyebrow! Eyebrow shown only for illustrative purposes, with eye-safe conditioner instead of hair dye, just so you can see what the brush would be like if I HAD a mustache, which I don't.
You (the man) would wait 5 minutes. This is a good opportunity to manfully clean the little tray and brush and put them back in the box for the next time your mustache is looking too gray or too blond or whatever.
Don't worry if when you next look in the mirror the extra potion has made the skin around your mustaches look kind of weird.
But next time you might want to keep the potion more IN THE LINES, just because nobody needs facial fuzz to be darker.
After 5 minutes, you (you're still a man) can get into the shower and rinse. You should be VERY CAREFUL not to get let the rinse water SLOSH UP into your eyes. Maybe you should squeeze your eyes very tightly shut. You should use a mild shampoo to wash your mustaches, and it's a good idea to have that shampoo bottle where you can find it while groping around with your eyes tightly squeezed shut, because seriously, don't open your eyes while rinsing or shampooing or re-rinsing the dyed parts. Just in case the water sloshes UP. Be really careful, men.
Just For Men is sold at Target for $6-7. Or maybe it isn't, how would I know? I'm not a man, nor do I have a beard or mustache, nor do I want to be PERMANENTLY BLIND. My mother, who also doesn't know where such a thing might be sold, says that if she were just guessing, she might guess that Walgreens also had a selection. But she adds that she really wouldn't know.
