Default Hair dye and birds

Hey everybirdie! Sorry about the title, lol, I could think of a better one.

Anyway, I have this plan and it involves temporarily dying my hair. So before I get a bunch of hate for this, I won't do it if this dye really reeks. My fids come first, no question! This is the dye I was going to use:

Manic Panic Semi Permanent Cream Hair Color

I'm thinking since it doesn't use PPD, ammonia, peroxide and parabens, I figured I could get away with dying it on the other side of my house, about two rooms away, with the vents covered and door cracks sealed on the bathroom in use and the budgie's room. I haven't smelled it yet, nor have I purchased it. I just was wondering what everyone's thoughts on this are, and obviously concerns.

My big plan here is that I'm going to donate about 11 inches of my hair, leaving me with 10. I know that this will make a huge splash at work, so I wanted to take it to the next level by temporarily dying it to really throw people off.

I just need to know if this is something that I can do inside the house, or if I need to find another place. But check out the link I posted and see what you guys think! Thanks!

-Kristen

I am not sure about how safe it is for the birds in the house, but I have used manic panic in the past before I had birds and found the smell to be rather mild compared to the bleach I had to use first.

Thanks! I hope it'll be mild enough for the above scenario. I hope as long as I meticulously seal every area, it will be ok, but still unsure. Have you ever tried the manic panic on dark hair without bleaching?

I have very dark hair so I was unable to use it without bleaching. I would be very reluctant to use bleach in a home with pets it is incredibly harsh and the fumes linger.

Absolutely on the bleach thing. My problem with bleaching besides my fids is my future plans to donate my hair after this time. They don't want bleached hair, So the bleaching won't happen regardless, maybe if I leave on the color longer?

I think that if you do it then you will probably end up with a hint of the color it just won't be that dramatic I bet it will still look awesome. I don't want to speak definitively on the safety issue tho. When it comes to dyeing hair I usually try it and if I don't get the result I want I figure it always grows back & since you will not be bleaching you won't be damaging your hair I'm curious myself if it's safe to dye hair in a bird household with the precautions you mentioned. Maybe crack a window?

Worse comes to worse, I can probably just go outside to do it. Idk. I'm gonna try something. I get paid tomorrow, so I'll probably get it all tomorrow, dye, brush, etc. I'll see how potent the smell is and go from there. I need to smell it before I know if I need to go outside to dye or if I can just seal myself in the bathroom.

Kristen,

Can you do it in a bathroom that has a vent to the outdoors?
If so, do it there and leave the vent on the entire time.
Put towels under the bottom of the door and stay in the room away from the birds the entire time you have the dye processing and it will be fine.

I want to see a picture once you've done the deed!!

Yes, the bathroom has a vent to outside, but I'd have to sneak into the kitchen for the sink. We're in the process of fixing the pumping in that bathroom, ugh. I can have Lonny turn on the vent in the kitchen and turn on the vent there too. Towels under bedroom and bathroom doors, and I can spend my processing time in the spare bedroom off the bathroom being used with the window open. Thanks for the input guys! Eeep! Now I really can't wait. I'm still going to see how strong the smell is before I decide anything, but if it's as mild as Kristina says, I should be fine. I'll be sure to post before and after pics here!
