My Growth and Setbacks 2003-2010


Fade to Black

I'm so excited that autumn is officially here.  This heat has been unbearable lately and I'm looking forward to wearing scarves and boots this season. 

One question I get asked often is whether I dye my hair and what brands I would recommend.  I have dyed my hair once in the past using a Wella demi-permanent color. But ended up having a mild allergic reaction, which my Allergist said was caused by the dye.  I've also used Jazzing rinses occasionally, but I end up missing my natural color and can't wait for it to wash out.  Then there was the horrible setback I experienced when I tried to color my hair black with henna and indigo. 

I liked the Jazzing because it was easy to use and it didn't dry out my hair.  My mom uses the Wella demi-permanent and she loves how long it lasts and gives her full coverage (although she doesn't use the black color).  Fortunately for her, she didn't have a reaction to the color like I did.  Before you use ANY color, it is imperative that you do a test spot first.  Just because a product works for others doesn't mean it will work for you. 

My natural hair color is a dark brown with a slightly lighter color around my temples.  Here is a picture of my hair when I used the Jazzing black rinse.

Get the look:  I used a 1" curling iron on blow dried and flat ironed hair.  I love wearing this style in the fall, so I'll be doing a tutorial on how I did it soon.

Wow... I just bought 2 bottles of Jazzy to do my hair this week.... Love your results !!!


Hi Mrs Kibibi, im a huge fan and i have watched all of you videos. I wasn't sure where to post this so please forgive me if this is the wrong section. I'm having some major shedding issues and im not sure what to do. I don't want to make this post too long but I want to tell you what i've done. I did the strand test and the hair broke immediately so i figured i needed some moisture. i braid my hair nightly and if i grab the end of my braid hair just pulls right out. i plan on doing a hard aphogee on Saturday. i did a deep condition today with one and only argon oil moisture conditioner. Do you have any recommendations. Sorry so long..thanks in advance!
