All Black Everything
Hey Queens, so last night I colored my hair and retwisted. Let me just say, I am over it! No not my locs chile, coloring! Ugggh! I'm talking about doing it myself. Its more than labor. It takes skill, and art to not get any color in my bathroom. I have to put a painters tarp down, towels, the works. Then it takes me about 1 hour total to get all the locs colored. Then it takes about 45 mins to rinse it all out! I can't see the back, lawd lets just say Queen bee has to take this to the salon now.
Yes, let the violin play. I have to start getting my coloring done professionally. I don't know how my lil sis does all her hair by herself (Nerissa Irving). Honestly, if my hair was that long I'd probably run butt naked in the middle of the street screaming, lol.
So, anyway, I just used regular hair dye which burned the hell out of my scalp. No I was burning a bit because its a chemical. So using the Aloe Vera Gel to retwist really soothes my scalp. I know you say get the Henna...but have you looked at the length of my locs? They are at 23" inches right now. That is a whole lotta of Henna. Then, they are thick as all get out, which means it takes one box to cover one section ( I part my hair into 4's).
Please don't lecture me about color being unhealthy, blah, blah, blah. Honey I'm in my late 30's and going grey is not an option right now. Holla at me when I turn about 45.
Okay, so all is well now, and when its time to recolor early 2011 ( I only do it twice a year), I will let ya know how it turned out!
