Color my world...
Ok, so I am no longer a "natural" brunette...with age comes grey and I'm willing to admit that! I've found that I can color my own hair without looking like I do (hence without paying the outrageous salon prices for a similar result). But, I just found what Redbookmag.com calls an "old trade secret" that may help you if you color your own hair and have a sensitive scalp.
Add two packets of "Sweet 'N Low" (yes the little pink packets you find in restaurants!) and an ounce of skim milk to your color formula before you apply the mixture to your hair. Apparently this prevents any reaction to the hair dye chemicals! I plan to try it next time, but if you do, please let us know (even anonymously!) if it works for you!
