I’m now a red-head!


One thing I have come to dislike about my hair is the fact that it’s not jet black. You would think that someone with my complexion would have jet black hair, but that’s not the case and the harsh sun we had this summer made it even more browny-dusty-black-looking, which is why I decided to dye it red.  Initially the colour had barely changed but once I looked at it under light I was actually quite impressed.  The only thing is it’s not permanent and the colour will wash out with each weekly wash, so the plan is to reapply it every 4 weeks (for up to 3 times).  Although I might let the hairdresser do it next time as that will save me worrying about permanently staining the bathtub!

As well as dying my hair red I did my first post-relaxer wash since I desperately needed to wash out the flakes from the scabs, which appeared regardless of my 45 minute scalp-basing session prior to getting a relaxer.  My scalp just seems to burn after about 120 secs of the relaxer being applied. I was looking forward to my first wash after a relaxer, as I really despise the thin looking post-relaxer hair, which is due to the flat-ironing with the really hot tongs that Deloris uses.  My hair looks nice on the day but over the course of the week when you apply moisturiser to counteract the dryness, it’s starts to look limp.

My only hope now is that the dye doesn’t have any adverse affects on my hair or scalp.
