Frequently asked questions about MY hair color and dyeing MY natural hair.
How do you still consider yourself natural if you dye your hair?: Dyeing has not altered my texture/curl pattern and I do not dye it with the intent of changing my texture. This is what I choose and if that makes me a little less “team natural” than others, so be it. I’m happy.
What color do you use?: Whatever catches my eye! Ha! I mainly use semi permanent/rinses over my bleached hair. I use mainly Ion Brilliance Red or Orange and Splat Luscious Raspberries.
Did you have to bleach it to get that vibrant color?: Yes, I did. I bleach the new growth about every 3 months. Now that I’m growing my hair out, I plan to stop bleaching. It’s very harsh and drying on MY hair.
How do you keep your hair moisturized?: I use a leave in conditioner every time I style my hair and I deep condition every week. I also use castor oil and coconut oil.
Would you recommend others dyeing and bleaching at home?: No. Ha! Don’t blame me when you have straw on top of your head. It would probably be best to see a professional. But if you’ve done it before, and you’re comfortable, go for it. Have fun. If all fails, it WILL grow back.
Hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, I’m happy to answer.
If you’re gonna rock it, be confident! #naturalhair #teamnatural #bebold #beconfident #bebeautiful #theiconiclife #yaaasss
That wash and go from 2 days ago is still going! Yaaasss! Moisturized with some water and leave in conditioner and defined a few curls with my fingers and ecostyler gel. Waves on the side done with ecostyler gel and a fine tooth comb. ☺️✨
I’m sleep tho’! Well, almost. It’s Good Friday! Good Friday is “good” because as terrible as that day was, it had to happen for us to receive the joy of Easter. #thankful #goodfriday
"It is easier to live through someone else than to complete yourself. The freedom to lead and plan your own life is frightening if you have never faced it before. It is frightening when a woman finally realizes that there is no answer to the question ‘who am I’ except the voice inside herself." #yaaasss #imlearning #leapsoffaith #itsaprocess
"I don’t think there are enough words in the world that exist to express exactly just how much I love my son! He’s right there in the front of my soul, he can turn me into an eagle, a lioness, a tigress, a swan! A goof or a queen! There’s no underestimating just how much I love him; I surround him like the ocean surrounds the ships! I never wanted to change the world, until he came along and showed me that he deserves a better world to live in!" #quotes #quotesilove #mothers #sons #portraitswithzoe #tbt
"Some may not understand how important it is to be a parent. How present, efficient, selfless, and imaginative you must be. But I do. I only pray that this little face is stronger than I am and more successful for this world and the next. I chase her butterflies. She was created from scratch and presented as a gift from God. She will never roam free, unattended and unloved." #quotes #quotesIlove #mothers #daughters #naturalhair #teamnatural #oneaccord
