We all know that it can be quite expensive to go to the salon…especially for a dye! So if you’re one of those girls that like to do the at-home dying, you probably know most of the ins and outs.

But if you’re a first timer, your scalp might not be used to the dye. Especially if you’ve never dyed your hair before! So what do you do when you put the dye on your hair and your scalp starts burning?
