Wow! Long time no blogging. I promise to be better for as long as my hair is out. I plan on trying different styles for the summer.
So after protective-styling for months, I got sick of protective styles and just went on a whim to color my hair. I had been thinking about it since late last year and curbed my urge by doing protective styles.
So about six years ago I did bleach my natural hair and I had some damages. Believe me, I vowed to never color my hair again. But here we are again! Since my last experience with color, I have gained a wealth of information on how to take care of colored hair, so I should be fine. Besides, it is just hair and if it gets damaged again, it will grow back!
About the process:
So I was inspired by the author of "The Science of Black Hair", Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, who posted a picture of her highlighted natural hair, a few months ago, on Instagram. I asked her for some advice on coloring and she recommended Aveda Institute, because the color is naturally-derived. She also said that coloring is always problematic but doing one's part to ensure that the tools used are as gentle as possible, is very important.
Because I do not want to keep coloring to maintain, I got highlights. The highlights will not make the new growth so different from the colored part.
I will be doing a lot of moisturizing and protein treatment, alternating each type of treatment every week.
Has anyone tried Aveda Color? If so, what was your experience like? Please share below.
