Coloring Locs

So this past weekend, I decided to color my locs black.  I have never seen my hair black, so I didn’t know what to expect.  My hair has always been light brown as far back as I can remember; my Lucian folks would even go far as saying I had shabin hair, lol.  But I wanted to embrace it before I get back that itch to cut it or comb it out so I thought maybe another color would help me. I have always colored my hair myself, whether it was permed or in it natural state but I still wanted to go on YouTube for assistance.  Not many people dyed their hair black so that was futile…so I took a leap of faith and went to Walgreen’s and got this:


This is the finished outcome, will definitely need to redo in 4-6 weeks, and trust me it is a little darker…my  hair is real light.  I think I should have kept it longer!  I also started it too late in the evening and all I was thinking is how am I going to dry that hair tonight…went to bed with it wet and 2 days later I have the sniffles 🙁


A closer look of it:


I am still liking the color and can’t wait to redo.  For anyone looking to do this if you do not want to go to a professional, I would recommend to follow the directions to the “t” and also if your hair is long and can’t see the back, get someone to help you.  In 4-6 weeks time I will be batting my eye-lashes for my husband to help me redo. 


Besos 🙂
