Coloring my Locks

<# thoughts of the day>

I am thinking of coloring my hair again. Right now it's a beautiful cranberry color,but I've been thinking of highlighting the front part some more. I want a summer color. I learn the hard way that locks are very sensitive to lighter colors and even after you have washed the color out, the color can cause degeneration of the locks. I take great care when coloring; I try not to overlap on the color which can cause weak spots. I would suggest that anyone coloring their hair in light like light blonde should use color instead of bleach. Bleach can cause locks to "pop" or pull apart like straw.

If you use semi permanent colors I found that Avatar is very good,and it doesn't fade fast at all. Great for relaxed hair too!

Hi Salkis,

I love your bob!! and the colour is fantastic. I have been using BIGEN for a numbr of years to colour my gray's and using the permanent. I now fancy colouring my hair in shades of dark brown but want to know if this is possible since I have been using permanents for so long.

Love from Dee

Your blog and photos are such inspiration. You are one of few richly melinated rawfood eating sistas I've seen have such a healthy look in your eyes. You appear to be fulfilled by what you ingest. Your eyes tell a very happy story. To explain my perspective: usually black women who are rawfood eaters tend to look hungry/starved/deprived in the eyes, no matter how healthy their body looks.
