Colortrak Tools Ear Protector Caps
I Love these little things!
I have no idea why someone would think these would fit an elf, but I bought these in the Sally's Store and have absolutely no regrets about these and will buy them again. I have used them for processing hair with bleach, toners, and hair coloring products, also purchased from Sally's. With bleaching, I also used Diane's clear plastic processing caps to contain the mess and yes, it got a bit warm after awhile. I simply popped the plastic cap back up so that my ears were not always under the cap. Problem solved. I don't reuse them simply because I do not want any chemicals left in them for the next time, and they are reasonably priced. I liked that they were elastic enough to keep them on without any binding at all. I've had them on for as long as 2 hours and they did exactly what I expected them to do. I haven't left them on while shampooing or rinsing the product off in the shower, so can't comment on their "water proofing" quality as some reviewers have mentioned. I highly recommend them.

These are huge!! These ear protectors could literally fit around an Elf's ear,.. they absolutely wont stay on the ears unless you have tiny rubberbands to go around them & then your ear is all crunched together and kinda painful. If these were 100x smaller I would recommend

Easy to use, comfortable wear during coloring, great protection, specially from black hair color, which tends to be messy. I can still hear everything with them on, even forget I put them on after a while.
I recommend this to anyone coloring at come, makes coloring less messy, easy!

$3, Itchy, It Slips, Ear Shower-caps
Today is 9/27/11.
This review is for the: “Color Trak Tools” EAR PROTECTOR CAPS”.
Online = $2.99
Beauty Club Card = $2.89
I call these “ear shower-caps” or ear caps for short. B/c they’re just that…they’re like little shower caps for your ears…so cute, lol !
I have small ears so these were kinda slipping around a bit. They wouldn’t really stay in place. Also, they itched. The longer I left them on, the more they itched. Idk if the itch is just b/c of this product b/c my ears usu. itch when I put on shower caps.
Next time, I might use a hairtie or a rubber band or tape to keep these in place. Also, I think you get 24 pairs in each package. I bought mine in store, there was only one left.
Initially, I bought these for the purpose of using them before I color my hair. Because sometimes I get a reaction from hairdyes (itching, redness, bumps, a lil burning, etc.). But I find that I have less or no reactions from hairdyes, if I apply Vaseline around my hairline. I also apply on my ears and the back of my neck, and around my face. It doesn’t have to be Vaseline, it can be any petroleum jelly or chapstick or lip balm or heavy lotion or cream etc..
Another alternative you could do is wrap some “saran wrap” or “aluminum silver cooking foil” on your ears. You could also use any regular shower cap and put it on your ear…either buy cutting the shower cap to shape your ear…or using a hairtie/rubber band.
PS - I’ll update this review, if needed !
