Can schools expel you for your hair colour?

Know your school policy mandating a "natural color, brown, blond, black, natural red/auburn, blue." before dyeing your hair pink, for example: 3-21-12 "Honor Student Banned from School for Pink Hair." a 6th grader who was rewarded for getting good grades.

Red hair gets 13-year-old suspended KCTV-5 Posted: Apr 12, 2012 8:13 PM PDT Updated: Apr 13, 2012 4:01 AM PDT

Recently from YA HAIR: "I have red tips on my fringe, I got in trouble at school and they want it out by tomorrow."

And another: "I dyed it purple. It was supposed to wash out after about a month. Now, many months later, it's still there. And it looks really stupid because it's grown out about three or four inches from my roots. I'm also not suppose dot have it at my job. I've tried dying my hair the same color as my natural hair color but that didn't work."

Three Somerset High School seniors learned the hard way that there are limits to showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink. The teens were asked to leave the campus or sit in suspension when they showed up with pink hair. The teens said they were just trying to support one of their teachers.

Example: i dyed my hair with loreal hicolor hilights magenta hair dye yesterday and ended up with hot hot hot pink roots and barely red hair?!?! i did it like i was doing a root touch up so i worked roots down, that was my mistake. now i have hot ppink roots omg. HELP!!!!!! what color can i use to make my whole head the color of ariana grande ah help i neeed to even this out

Example: I died my hair about 2 months ago and it hasnt faded, i used aussie shampoo and conditioner.

Semi-permanent or permanent USUALLY takes up to 28 washings or months, some brands takes 2 washings for semi-perm., depends on the brand really.

Example: GREELEY — Ariel Davila was asked to leave Brentwood Middle School in Greeley on Monday when she showed up with blue hair, which is a violation of school dress code directly related to gang colors.

Her parents were okay with the blue hair, and they say they are now upset her daughter is being punished for self-expression.

The school handbook includes a section on dress code that specifically refers to blue and red.

And another: Utah 15-year-old suspended after dying her hair a ‘distracting’ red

Rylee MacKay learned last week she was in violation of a Hurricane Middle School policy that hair ‘should be within the spectrum of color that grows naturally." 2-12-13.

Style meets chemistry meets biology: We're talking hair coloring.

Playing with chemicals is not like playing with clothes, or doing a manicure, there are penalties for playing chemicals in the lab. Even hair color experts at the salon are not rocket scientists, they do a bang up dye jobs to their clients or their own hair.

Chemicals can enter the body through the skin.

> > > Hair dye chemicals linked to cancer

London, Feb 20, 2013 I've been saying that since 2009.

Hair dyes, which include home hair colouring kits and those used at pricey salons, are linked to deadly cancer-causing chemicals, warn scientists. In 2009 the Mail revealed that women who used hair dyes more than nine times a year had a 60% greater risk of contracting blood cancer.

A year later the European Commission banned 36 hair dyes which put long-term users at risk of bladder cancer. < < < <

Google: Teen 'feared she would die' after reaction to hair dye

The allergic reaction was caused by a well-known brand of semi-permanent hair dye Chloe used to turn her hair black for a Hallowe’en party. . . . . called for beauty bosses to ban hair dye chemical PPD (para-phenylenediamine) from the shelves. 11-04-11

The chemical is not new and is present in a number of brands of dark hair colours, acting to help adhere the dye to the hair so that it doesn't wash out. It’s made from coal tar and is used in both permanent and semi-permanent hair colours. It’s well-known to be a cause of serious allergic reactions -- including something called contact dermatitis which can lead to rashes, blisters, and open sores.

PPD is sometimes added to black henna tattoos and that using them is not safe. Allergic reactions usually begin within two to 10 days following application. One bad reaction can lead to sensitivities to other products such as hair dye, sunblock and some types of clothing dyes. Oftentimes, it's using the product a second or third time. Skin specialist Najjia Ashraf reveals that there are barely any dyes that don’t contain this toxin; even the ones who claim they don’t, are not being honest. “Big brands often escape the blame by suggesting they are ammonia-free. However, ammonia and PPD are two very different things and PPD is present in nearly every dye because it is what gives off the colour,” she explains.

Permanent black hair dye is linked to causing leukemia and lymphomas.

What are simple, yet unique fundraisers for our school class?

What are simple, yet unique fundraisers for our school class?

Hi Jammin;

Local small businesses are always looking to raise awareness and attract new customers.

Search out local stores or services that could supply the needs and wants of the students and their families of your school. Approach the owner and offer to promote the business to students at your school. Suggest the merchant offer to make a donation to the school student council each month based on the total value of receipts collected and turned over to the council treasurer. The donation might be a percentage of the total value of all purchases made the previous month. For example 5%. If successful try contacting other non competing merchants in your community to join the campaign.

This would be a win-win for the business the school and the students. Most of all it will be a great booster for your local community as it will help keep local money circulating in your home town.

Good Luck
