Well, the thing with taking the sharpie apart though and using that to make the spray stuff is that it's really diluted and it really just doesn't work as well as you would hope.

My hair isn't weak as much as it has a different chemical in it from relaxing. I've heard that those chemicals don't mix well with bleaching.

Temperary dye isn't even an option since I don't want it to be temperary.

Hair question!

I know a lot about wigs but I'm clueless about dying real hair and how some of it works for the most part.

Anyway, if someone has relaxed hair can they also dye it? I've heard from many sources that it will damage the hair or make it fall out!

In the respects of the SM wig, I would go with the femme just because it would be way easier to style the cut in bangs better than totally having to restyle the Cleo's f-ed up banbgs.

It's something where you create a sort of curve in so that the odango can sit on the wig. I'm not sure how you do it with a wig exactly for Sailor Moon but I can get creative.
