No more restrictions on my hair

So within the last two to three years, I had incorporated long-term  protective styling heavily into my hair regimen.

Well, I am kind of tired of that. I achieved my goals with that regimen. I found out that I can retain length better when my hair is left alone. But I had a lot of shedding and my hair was not getting enough protein and moisture-balanced treatment.

So I have decided to be more adventurous with my hair. I recently cut my hair and  I thought of coloring, however, I cancelled my appointment with Aveda Institute because I was so scared.
Maybe I should go for Shea Moisture Coloring system and just do it myself.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried Abeda Institute for coloring or Shea Moisture Coloring System?

Please share your experience below if you have.


  1. When I was relaxed, whenever I colored my hair, it would break at the point of color. Thankfully, I never colored my whole head . . . I just had "streaks" put in. As a result, I am fearful to ever again add color to my hair. I suspect it would be different now that I'm natural but I wouldn't know for sure until I did it. So to avoid any hair drama, I just stick to the natural color I've got. I would imagine that a professional would be able to see more and do a better job but if you are good with your hair (as you are), maybe you can do a better job on your own. I love color, though. Love it and wish I could try it. (Too scared) I wish you the best in your decision. Good luck to you. Can't wait to see what you decide!

  2. I used the Shea Moisture system and really liked it. It didn't have any adverse affects on my hair. If you want red I would go with henna, if you want another color I would definitely go with Shea Moisture. I did the Dark Golden Blonde. I have a before and after picture in this post:


I will love to hear from you
