Have you been thinking about dying your hair? In the spring and summer months a lot of us get that itch to play with color and lighten our curls! Before you pick up the phone to call your stylist STOP and think about this for a minute. Once you color your hair, the health of your hair changes forever. The damage may not be immediate but the damage will come even if you went to a professional stylist. I have never bleached or colored my natural hair on my own aside from a black box dye which is also damaging and I still suffered with damage, I'd say it took about a year and a half for me to really notice the damage but it very much so could have been there all along -- I may have just been in denial *shrugs*
I did my final big chop which was the 2nd BC for me in 2015 and at that moment I decided that I would stay away from color. No matter how gentle of a lift the stylist says he/she is going to give you, sis A LIFT IS A LIFT! So here's what you need to do before you go out and make the same mistake I made years ago.
Go ahead and get you a jar of this hair paint wax, and play with color the safe way.
