So guess who dyed some locs last night?
Meeee. It was extremely spontaneous and I am LOVING how they came out. I plan to dye a few locs red for good measure and then I'l leave color alone for awhile.
So here's what I did...
I put braided down the locs in the back and threw on a shower cap. I poked a few holes in the shower and strung out some locs.
After this photo I ended up stringing out another 4-5 locs. I didn't use any method. I just randomly selected locs. I did want to make sure that my left and right were somewhat even though.
Then I mixed up the concoction.
I have been using this dye since I've been natural. That's 4 years! I love love loooove it. It has never given me any problems so I ain't fixin' what's NOT broke, as the old folx say. I've heard of better dyes but I don't want to risk it so I stick with Dark & Lovely.
I saturated my locs with the dye and left it on for a good hour. The box said 30 minutes for natural hair but after 30 minutes my locs were still dark brown.
I even dyed the soldier loc! The solider loc is my favorite because it is the first one to loc. I felt like it deserved the honor to go golden brown!
Look at all the fuzziness!
Oh weee, I love it! Finally some color in my life. Dark brown hair just doesn't do it for me. It's so...blah. I feel more like myself with the color. I think I'll do red tonight, slick down the fuzziness with some aloe vera gel and put the rollers in.
My locs are so beautiful. I really do love them.
And in 3 days they'll be 8 months. Already! Hot dayum!
Peace and loc've
