Have you tried an actual shower cap? The tan ought not to penetrate that! (glam look....the things we do ai?!!)

Although rather awkward you could wash and conditioner your hair pre tan and leave the conditioner whilst being tanned and leave it in over night.... then in affect the tan should sit on the conditioner not your hair and you'll be able to wash both off in the morning, it could also be a deep cleansing treatment for your hair.

Bleached dry hair unfortunately like grey hair will act like a sponge to DHA..very much like dry skin does on the palms of hands and soles of feet.

The problem is that the DHA soaks right into the hair and doesnt just sit on the surface and is therefore is very difficult to remove without damaging the hair itself.

Prevention of the DHA increasing into the hair is probably about the best course of action to take.

Some ideas
1) Try having your spray tan with hair that has not recently been washed so the natural grease in the hair may give some added barrier.
2) ensure your hair is washed with a heavy conditioner if you do need to wash it before a spray tan.
3) explore possible barrier cream or oil options.Take the cream and comb it backyards from where it comes out from the crown ...just an inch or so should be fine...this way you don't end up with a brown/white stripe across your forehead.
4)make sure your shower cap covers as much general hair as possible
5) after the treatment take a kitchen towel and wipe off the barrier cream you have used in step 3) wiping back wards from your forehead (without wiping your skin and without wiping it onto the rest of your hair...try and stay within the parameters of the barrier area.Tricky I know but maybe worth the effort...if that makes sense?

Unfortunately there really is no guaranteed way of resolving this problem....one of the disadvantages of being a blond Gal (or a grey haired guy) I suppose.
Maybe one of the hair geeks may have some ideas of the best barrier and means of removing any solution stain.

Sorry not conclusive but I hope of some help

Its a pleasure

I definatley thing prevention is better than a cure in this case so hopefully some answers as to the best barrier may come from a hair geek...good luck
