Re: [BKARTS] Lady Clairol???

Hi Jim,
Lady clairol MSDS sheets are at http://www.cachebeauty.com/clairol.htm
Seems like they have an average pH of 9-10 - very basic.

The discussion was with a couple who hand craft replicas of vintage musical
instruments. The woman artisan casually mentioned that they frequently use
Lady Clairol hair dye to achieve the proper color for their instruments.
With the hundreds (or more) of shades available, I wondered what the
experiences or pitfalls of using this material in book repair or
construction. Permanence?? Acidity?? Any other issues??
