I have been enjoying my hair color. The only thing about my hair is that it grows quickly. I’m not complaining or anything like that but as a result the color started to grow out within 3 weeks of having dyed my hair. I’m talking noticeable within 3 weeks. lol….

I have a slight tutorial coming up with how I did my braid out and the results. I am also going to review some of the hair products that I have been using to get my hair to grow and to retain moisture. Unfortunately I have to moisturize my hair EVERY day or else it will feel brittle. I am still looking for that mafic product(s) that will last for at least a few days so I wont have to touch my hair so much. Touching the hair I feel makes it break much easier. Anywho stay tuned!!!!



{July 27, 2010}   Blonde Bombshell….

I recently decided to dye my hair. At first I just wanted to go light brown/blondish. My hair has never turned blonde when I was relaxed so I didn’t think it would now that Im natural. Well, instead of using the usual hair dye, I decided to go with Clairol Textures & Tones permanent hair dye. I liked it because it stated it was moisture rich with no ammonia which seemed to dry out my hair sooooo much when I was relaxed……..

So the first time around I chose color 6G Honey Blonde. Now this was a CUTE color. It actually took and made my hair look light brown with golden/blondish reflects. I’m assuming this was due to the dye including a booster packet. I think the booster packet acts as a bleaching agent. Either way, it was cute. But I couldn’t stop there. I wanted to go lighter. It just wasn’t blonde enough for me and to top it off one side of my hair didn’t get as light as the rest of my hair. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures before I colored again but rest assured it did take….

Which brings me to the second coloring. Silly me I forgot that it would go REALLY light considering I had just died it honey blonde. (I guess I had a REAL blonde moment there so to speak). Anywho….I purchased 7G Lightest Blonde and decided that I was going to dye the middle top portion of my hair the lightest. Meaning I would clor this portion first and leave on for 15 min before applying anywhere else. I then applied the color to the portion of my hair that did not take as well the first time. I let that sit for about 5 min then colored the rest of my hair. Well needless to say it TOOK……

I don’t know if I’m quite that bold enough to rock it as is. I will take pictures as soon as I muster up the courage….It does look a tad orangey to me…but my mom says it looks blonde. She also said it makes me look dark…MOTHERS!….

Here is what the dye looks like….

So after the confirmation of my hair dye job looking good from a friend….here is what my hair looks like now….

Fro Hawking it owt!
