Red hair +animal print = love.

10 Nov

I came across this picture on Apartment Therapy and I just realized. I.NEED.MY.RED.HAIR.BACK. I called myself growing out my hair color, which actually I only have about 2 inches left.

But this pretty lady, Ashley, co founder of Dime Piece Designs just took me there. I need to re-color like 3 months ago. Really the only reason I stopped is I had to color it about every 5 weeks or so, and pay special attention to deep conditioning. Unlike when I had a relaxer and my trusty Jazzing “Cherry Cola” rinse did the trick, my natural hair sneezes at color rinses. With permanent color, there is a developer which bleached my hair to some extent, so that the red color would show. As you can imagine, you have to make sure you keep your strands healthy so that you don’t have split ends,and other visible damage. I will cover hair care for color treated hair in a later post.

Doesn’t her hair look sooooooooo good against her skin tone?

Here is a couple pictures of me, when I actually had the time to maintain my color.


The color I was using is called “Blazing Burgundy” by Clairol Textures and Tones…

Maybe old man winter will bring my fiyah hair back?
