New Year, New Color


7 comments
If you've been following this blog awhile, you know I've spent some time dabbling into natural hair products, DIY products, and such.  Even when finding ways to accentuate my increasing amounts of gray hair, I even resorted to plant based options (i.e. henna and indigo).

I never thought I would actually dye my hair, let alone allow a friend to dye my hair, but I did.  And so far I have survived!  And most importantly, my hair has survived.

After watching several Youtube videos, I finally decided to try the Shea Moisture hair color kit.  I've been a fan of Shea Moisture products for a while because they're sulfate free, paraben free, use organic products, and support fair trade.  And, they're affordable.  So, yay!  So back to the hair color kit.  The kits sell for $14.99, but when I called Sally Beauty in my area to see if they even sold these kits, they happened to have two kits on clearance in jet black.  What!  They were marked down to $5.24 each.  They held them for me, and the rest was history.

  1. I don't dye my hair but don't know if I could do that at home like you did. Sounds like quite an adventure! And, by the way, your look FABULOUS! ;-)

  2. Hi Libby!
    Happy New Year! It ceases to amaze me how much we have in common. I am a Shea Moisture fanatic and I too used organic henna and indigo; I ordered it from HennaSooq.com. I stopped about 6 months ago and started using a semi permanent rinse because of the lengthy process. Also, the plan was to stop coloring all together and live with the grey but I have not gotten bold enough to do so. All in time; everything is a process. So glad everything worked out for you. So glad the natural hair movement has skyrocketed. Score for the Curly Girls! Blessings to you for 2016.

  5. I really need to try natural hair color products. I have read up on the henna process which seemed like too much work. Plus I read that the grey hairs will show up bright orange. Yikes since I have a lot of grey! Now it is nice to see more natural products on the market!

  6. I've decided to embrace my gray (of course, I'm older than you), but what I don't like is how my hair is less vibrant looking as I've gotten older. I once used a clear hair color that was just supposed to add shine, but I couldn't really tell the difference. Your hair looks good, but I thought it looked good before too.

  7. I like the boldness of the new black - I did have a giggle at your facial expression during the process - you don't look nervous at all, merely bemused!
