Tri-Colored Locs

So I added red to the mix! Oh my words, I looooove it!!

I used this...



I never thought that it would end up THAT red. I'm not complaining but hot dayum Dark & Lovely! LOL! I must say that if you are going to use these dyes and you are fearful of your hair going TOO red or TOO brown, check your hair often. The color changes quickly. I thought that it would take a while since I have tightly coiled hair, but nope!

This is very accurate.



Reds are tricky because the dye is darker. You can't see the color change as well as you can see it with the browns and blondes. I left the red in longer than I wanted to simply because I couldn't tell if my hair color was changing or not.

So yes, a definite disclaimer to those going red. Be careful!!

Now that I think about....I've never gone this red. How exciting! Here are the results!



Me realizing that....I REALLY love this look.









It really isn't as bright as these pictures show. I am using a flash on my camera and standing in front of bright lights. In real life it looks more like...




So see...it only looks super colorful in zee light. I can still go to work and assimilate to that businesses casual crap. HA!!

Love iiiiiit!!
