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.
