Hair Journey Update: I Finally Got the Red I Wanted! Textures & Tones
So this month I went for it! I know I said after dealing with Dark & Lovely that it would be my last run with dying my hair but I just had to give it another try. I used textures and tones Red Hot. The lightest red that they had available. This time around I didn’t suffer and any tangles. I left it in my hair for maybe 32 min because I was watching Bad Girls Club Reunion (TEAM SHANROCK!) lol.
I am sooo happy with the results. I rinsed my hair with cold to warm water. Then instead of using shampoo I used ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) to clean my hair. I used the conditioner provided with the dye. My hair loooves that conditioner I think I will switch to that conditioner whenever I clean my hair from now on even though its sulfate. I only wash my hair maybe once or twice a month. Here are the results, in the photo and no I haven’t suffered any major hair loss just the regular shedding. I had just finished moisturizing and sealing my hair so my shrinkage had set in. When I take my photos of my hair progress I usually have my hair fluffed out using water only.
In the photo I have my hair braided in the front in preparation for my half wig. I’m not the best braider lol so don’t make fun of me, I try! The earrings I made, I plan on wearing them for graduation. I really want to wear my natural hair for graduation but when I told my mom she looked at me and said NO you can wear your natural hair any day but graduation. Honestly I agree even though it seems as though its against the whole going natural journey I still don’t feel comfortable with everyone seeing my hair yet. I do plan on wearing my natural hair by the end of this year though.
I can honestly say that this will be the last time I dye my hair. I got the results I have been wanting for a very long time and the point behind me dying my hair was just so that I can see my growth progress better. Plus once my hair grows to my desired length, 23 inches, it will look like a nice ombre color :D…unless I end up trimming it .
Heres my length check for this month. That was my hair in January/Feb now its May. Doesn’t look like much of a difference but its grown a tiny bit…might be due to me dying my hair too much. Hopefully by December I’ll be able to see a huge difference.
