I got my ears pierced about a month ago. Can I switch earrings? I know they say at least 6 weeks, but these earrings seem REALLY tight to me and they hurt if I accodently bump/knock them with my hand or something. They aren't infected, and they don't hurt all the time by any means, but I feel like I would benefit from earrings that aren't so tight on my ear. Or is it normal for them to still be sensitive after a month??

ETA: I got them done at Claire's and I feel like these earrings are intended for kids with much smaller ears than mine.

I went and bought my henna tonight and the lady assured me I'd get a nice rich "Irish Setter" colour...

How'd yours go, Southpaw, or have you done it yeT?

Just waiting for my friend to get off work so we can start! It's gonna be a late night lol. I did my strand test though, only left it on for about 2 hours and I'm thinking I'll leave it on my head for much longer because I don't see too much difference! Which I suppose is better than being horrified at the change lol.

Leave it on as long as you feel comfortable. I usually give my treatments about six hours. Some people let it sit overnight. The longer you go, the more benefit/richness in colour it can have on your hair.

I want to henna my hair, too, but it's so short right now it feels pointless.

I did 2.5-3 hours and it only changed it a shade or so.

Gaaaaaah. I want to henna my hair so bad.

But looking at all the pictures on the other thread, I dunno if I could get henna to go as bright as I want it to. And I'm scared I'll lose the red forever if I screw it up.

Boooo.
*googles more henna*

OMG so excited for henna pics! I want to do mine (in the far off future) for the health benefits. I just recently had my hair ombréd so I'm not going to change it anytime soon.

Did they put studs in? I'm guessing since it was Claire's they did and that's not good. If you can, I would go somewhere and see if they can switch it out for a captive bead ring. It shouldn't hurt if you knock into it at this point... mine actually never hurt if I remember right, maybe a bit right after I had it done but I could clean them starting that night and they didn't hurt.
The studs are usually short and the butterfly backs on earrings can pinch really tightly (and trap/push bacteria into the piercing) so they're really not recommended.

Switch them if you can but I wouldn't switch 'em for another butterfly back until it's totally healed.
