Playing With Colour

Hello ladies,

I am sure I have mentioned a few times that if your hair is chemically straightened then you should avoid colouring you hair with a chemical dye.  Using a chemical hair dye on relaxed or texlaxed hair means your hair has been exposed to two types of strong chemicals and will be severely compromised.
If you are relaxed or texlaxed colouring your hair with either a temporary wash out colour like a rinse or a natural dye like henna is a much safer option.
Looking at my wigs recently and comparing it to my sister’s collection of wigs I realised that all her wigs are coloured whilst a vast majority of mine are a good old colour 1b.

She recently purchased the Nazuri curls straight hair that I have been rocking recently and had it ombre’d
I really loved how the colour looked on her wig and think I might get mine coloured too.  It’s a great way for me to play with colour without any damage to my hair.

I might write a blog post however to share some tips about different types of colour for ladies who would rather colour their actual hair.

I am pre-pooing my hair as I type this up and should have a wash day post up pretty soon.

Happy hair journey

    I wig it for the fall and winter seasons allowing my hair to grow and mature. I love the idea of playing with colors when it comes to wigs. I am a major fan of full coverage with curls and waves, it looks more natural and less odd. I usually go to amazon and hope all turns out well after I hit the purchase button. Is it weird that I think of wigs as accessories?

    Thanks for posting, it can be tough but somebody’s gotta do it!

      OMG, you are not weird. I see my hair as an accessory as well, wig or not it completes your look and sometimes your mood lol!!

        I agree with Ty…its certainly not weird. I often decide what wigs to wear based on my outfit for the day so it most definitely an accessory.

      Hello Ummita
      Thanks for your comment.
      When they weather changes we have to tweak our hair regimens accordingly.
      With harmattan you can try to moisturise and seal your hair more regularly and you may have to use heavier/thicker moisturisers and oils.
      so for example if you normally use coconut oil to seal you can switch to a heavier oil like olive oil or a butter like shea butter.
      You should also ensure that you wash and deep condition regularly, harmattan is the wrong time to skip on wash days.
      wear protective styles…keep those ends hidden to avoid them drying out even more.
      Avoid using product that contain high amounts of glycerine in it because in cold weather the glycerine can cause the moisture in your hair to absorbed by the dry harmattan air.
      I hope all these tips help

    This wig is gorgeous. The color kicked it up a notch. It’s so natural looking.

    Hi Lade, very educative blog you have going on, well done. I’d like to know if Bigen hair dye is safe enough to colour the hair with as it claims to be ammonia free and water based. Thank you

      Hello Yemi

      Thank you so much for your comment
      I will be completely honest with you, Although I am aware of the Bigen hair dye brand I have never used on ( on anyones hair) and I don’t know anyone personally who does use it.
      I don’t want to give you information I am unsure of.
      I would suggest that if you want to colour your hair and are unsure of which dye is safest to use on your hair, you should consider going to a professional well recommended salon that can advise you correctly.
      sorry I couldn’t be of much help.
      best of luck
