Aida Has Color
Back in August, one of my old homegirls & I placed color in my newly natural hair.
It was definitely a cool experience.
I was a bit nervous !
Some of my concerns consisted of:
• What if my hair comes out ?
• What if this damages my hair ?
• What if I don’t like the color ?
• What if it loosens my curl pattern extremely ?
• What if my hair doesn’t take well to it ?
These were all legitimate concerns, but thanks to The Lord Himself for YouTube, Google, & Friends !
After doing research my concerns changes from ” Will my hair fall out” to:
• How will I combat dry hair ?
• What part of my hair regimen am I willing to change ?
Life got a bit easier
I noticed that my hair was particularly dry, but I also saw that I was able to measure my new growth a lot better !
How I combated dryness:
• I Changed My conditioner:
I went from co-washing my hair every 7-10 days to co washing every 2-3 weeks.
My hair would be sooo dry by the end of the week and the LOC method was doing absolutely nothing for my precious locs.
My sister suggested I try Design Essentials. I used her set and I loved how my hair felt after 7 days.
• I changed the ingredients I used to my LOC method.
I invested in some coconut oil, which was the best decision I ever made !
Aida no longer cares for jojoba oil ! She used to love that stuff during transition ! But not anymore.
She loves Shea Moisture Curl Enhance Smoothie & Beautiful Textures Curl Creme as well.
And I know my hair has to like Shea butter mix!
I’m in search for a new leave in conditioner. So far Jane Carter has been doing me justice and kinky curly knot today, and I also tried carols daughter ( which does me absolutely no justice) .., but we’ll discuss that another time.
• protective styling.
I’ve been doing two strand flat twist and two strand twists. It’s been helping me keep my hands out if my head. It’s also been a lot less stressful.
Post Color Thoughts: Any Regrets?
Do I regret coloring my hair? No!
Will I color it again? Yes !
Do I recommend it? I say do what you want to do ! If you would like a splash of color in your life go right ahead.
Some people color a section of hair, some color the tips of their hair, while others color their entire head !
I do not recommend it if you are one that does not like tending to your mane on a regular/weekly basis. Without the proper TLC your hair WILL Break !
I promo healthy hair, before I promo ‘cute’ hair.

My hair has gotten golden brown as time has passed. (Before it was brown with a tint of red)
