COLORED HAIR CIR.
colored hair- hair that has been chemically processed using dye to alter its natural color.
To dye or not to dye hair? This is a question that lingers amongst the natural hair community on a grand scale. From vibrant violet, lime green, hot pink & every other color in the spectrum, a colored crown catches the eye of many. Let's be honest, your crown has a texture from the God's on top of a unique color creating a recipe of CROWN GALORE! However, can coloring your hair go left before it goes right?
YES, yes & more yes! However, in order for something to go left it all depends on how right your routine was before & after coloring hair. Here is a personal story from the owner sharing her experience with dying her hair for several years.
NEW LOOK, MOOD BOOSTER, DISPLAYS SELF EXPRESSION, ENHANCES GLOW, PROMOTES SMOOTHNESS.
OVERUSE OF DYE CAN CAUSE HAIR TO DRY OUT & BREAK OFF IF CARED FOR IMPROPERLY, PERMANENT DYE IS HARSHER THAN SEMI-PERMANENT DYE, UPKEEP INCREASES, POSSIBLE ALLERGIC REACTIONS.
"I've been getting color applications since my perm days. Yes yall heard me right, PERM DAYS! It was something about getting a fresh color that made me felt like a new woman. I felt like I was bound to newer & colorful heights just by changing the color of my hair. Basically, it was and still is a mood booster for me! Although it had its PROS, I still had to be cautious of the CONS that came with it.
Of course, I enjoyed the new look! Yet, after years of coloring, especially in my perm days, I noticed my ends would split more frequently, length reversed, dryness & breakage increased etc. So once I decided to do the BIG CHOP, I knew that I had more freedom to color my hair because my natural texture was much stronger. However, I just had to make it my responsibility to co-wash weekly, shampoo less, use cool water more than warm, avoid heat & less manipulation styles. Since then, I can color my hair with no worries because I KNOW MY HAIR!"
