Default Shirts changing colour after flash drying

OK, so after i flash a shirt { a few times for multi colour} The shirt seems to take on a bit of colour change around where it was in contact with the platen. IS this because im flashing it too much?
Or is this becasue of a certain dye in the shirts. Red and brown shirts seem the worst.
Thanks guys!

Its just the way the shirts are.
Red does it worst.
When it cools down it should go back to normal

As Fizz says it will be alright when it cools.... However that doesnt mean just because it feels cool.... Printed some ladies ribbed t's once that didnt return to looking normal for quite a few hours..... anyway your post made me Laugh, I still remember the first time I printed red shirts..... I just knew i had ruined them.... INSTANT PANIC..... By the time your reading this it should all be long gone....
