Next, the neck-covering portion 12 of the protective cover 10 is adjustably covered and positioned on a person's scruff 30 and neck sides 40. In case the person's hair is too long and covers up a person's scruff 30 and neck sides 40, the exceeding part of the hair has to be adjusted to position on the outer side of the neck covering portion 12 of the protective cover 10. Thus, the person's ears 20, scruff 30 and neck sides 40 can be completely covered and protected by the protective cover 10, able to prevent them from contacting with hair dye and causing skin disease in the process of hair dyeing.

The two ear covering portions 11 are the same as those described in the first preferred embodiment. The neck covering portion 12 has its lower left and right side respectively extending outward horizontally and forming a connect member 121 having its outer end provided with a Velcro band 122. The two connect members 121 can be pulled to the front side of a person's neck to be connected with each other by the Velcro bands 122, able to position the protective cover 10 comparatively stably.

A third preferred embodiment of an ear and scruff protective cover 10 used in the process of hair dyeing in the present invention, as shown in FIG. 7, includes two ear covering portions 111 and a neck covering portion 12. The two ear covering portions 11 are flexible covers able to be respectively and flexibly covered on a person's left and right ear 20 for protection.

Apart from being connected by adhesion, the ear hangers 111 and the covering members 112 of the protective cover 10 can be movably connected with each other by releasable fasteners or by high frequency soldering. In addition, the neck covering portion 12 and the covering members 112 of the ear covering portions 11 can be made of plastic, paper, non-woven fabric or fiber.

While the preferred embodiments of the invention have been described above, it will be recognized and understood that various modifications may be made therein and the appended claims are intended to cover all such modifications that may fall within the spirit and scope of the invention.
