SIlver Hair & Spray Tan Staining
(Ocean City MD)
Question: I have Silver hair....will it stain my hair if it gets on it?
Answer: Yes, there is a chance of that happening especially if there is bronzer in the solution. Bronzer is just a vegetable dye that is added to the solution which gives you an instant tan, but I don't like it much because it has a tendency to stain and streak.
To avoid getting your hair stained wear a shower cap and cover the roots of your hair that are still visible by putting some barrier cream onto them, or even better - vaseline.
Barrier cream is usually supplied by the spray tanning salon, but vaseline is more effective. You have to bring it yourself, I have not seen a salon yet that would supply it to their customers.
You don't have to put too much of it on, a little bit goes a long way.
