Dying to Try It

Hello All!

I hope you are enjoying the arrival of November! Happy Fall. With the fall comes cooler weather. I'm always on the look out to create or try new products for moisture. My locs have been softening up. I do wonder if it's just me getting used to them or are they actually softening up. The new thing on my mind is dying my locs. I've seen some really interesting loced hair colors. I'm in a toss up between blonde and a red. I'm leaning more towards blonde. When I originally had my hair loced my loctician (April 12, 2011) put a few locs of a lighter brownish red color. It added something extra but I think I'm ready to go bolder. I've dyed my hair blonde before. Well not my whole head just streaks and the back bottom part. I liked the streaks. So I think I'm going to go for it. Not sure how many streaks I'll do though. I went to the store last night to see what hair colors were available for a good price. I can't remember what brand I used last time. The last time I had my hair dyed was in 2005. Dying the locs will be a new adventure to learn about. I've been doing research and I've read the big warning only have your loctician do this, and then I hear it's easy from the DIY'ers. I'm a DYI'er :). After deciding not to get any hair dye last night, this morning I decided to do a little Photoshop work to a photo to see what it might look like. You tell me, Go for it or No.

                                           Stay as is                        or                                  blonde streak?

I think you could go either way. If you choose a blonde color, just make sure that you use a really good brand. I say this only because it not then your locs will look rusty down the line. If you choose a red color, then I think that would look really pretty on you, but I read that red dyes fade quickly so it requires an up keep. Have you decided yet? :-)

dewdrop No I haven't done anything to it yet. I'm thinking of going to get the dyed hair and just wrapping it to avoid the chemicals. I don't know but the info you gave is useful! I'll be sure and not go cheapo on the hair dye. Who needs that rusty look lol!
