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.

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!
