    dye and hairs

    1. I need to dye my hairs.
    2. I need to dye my eye lashess.
    3. I need to dye my eye lashess.
    4. I need to put a tint of brown on my eye lashes.
    5. I need to buy hair dye to dye my hairs
    6. I need to buy the tint of brown to dye my hair.
    7. I need to perm my eye lashes.
    8. I saw someone having a little bunch of hairs in the front and dye it in golden silver. It's longer than the rest of the hairs. How do we call this bunch of hair.
    9. I saw someone having a little bunch of the fringe in the front and dye it in golden silver. How do we call this bunch of hair.
    10. I saw someone having hair falling on her faces seems like did not comb the hair before she went. If I want to tell her in a polite way, shall I say, "your hairs are not tidy enough, let me help you to fix it."
    11. If I want to tell my friends about this, shall I say, "her hairs are so untidy and sloopy.
    Thanks.

    Re: dye and hairs

    Here's more:

    6. I need to buy a brown dye for my hair.
    7. I need to perm my eyelashes. (Do people actually do this?)
    8. I saw someone with a little bunch of hair at the front dyed golden silver (I've never heard of that colour.) It's longer than the rest of her hair. What do we call this bunch of hair? Just 'a bunch', I think.
    9. I saw someone with a little bunch of the fringe at the front dyed golden silver(? again). What do we call this bunch of hair? I can't visualise this.
    10. I saw someone with her hair falling on her face like she had not combed it before going out. If I want to tell her in a polite way, shall I say, "Your hair is not tidy enough. Let me help you to fix it"?
    11. If I want to tell my friends about this, shall I say, "Her hair is so untidy and sloppy"?

    Re: dye and hairs

    Side note: Don't tell someone you do not know very, very well that their hair is not tidy. It's none of your business.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
