And the Color Is...

Rockstar inquired about my new hair color. I wondered if anyone noticed. Let me go ahead and through this disclaimer out there first - I DO NOT RECOMMEND COLOR for those who are not completely locked. Consult your loctician first.





I admired the hair color of two Sisterlocks wearers I met during my consultant training. In speaking to them individually, I learned they both use and recommend Naturtint. Coincendentally, they both use the Hazelnut Blonde color which I found so becoming against their brown skin tone. I'd often stop and examine the Naturtint green box at the health food store, but passed it up primarily because I didn't know anyone who had ever used it AND the people on the boxes looked nothing like me.



I needed two boxes of Hazelnut. There was only one on the shelf. So I thought I'd try the Dark Golden Blonde, a close and complimentary color. I used Hazelnut in the front section of my hair and Dark Golden Blonde in the back - no specific reason - just something I tried. I'm pretty happy with the results. The two colors compliment each other and my natural hair color nicely, giving my locks a highlighted look without the harshness of bleaching. Again, not scientific - just something I tried. Later in researching the product more, I learned the following:


Naturtint is a permanent hair colorant with vegetable ingredients. It is enriched with wheat, soy, corn and oat plant protein complex designed for hair restructuring and protection. Naturtint contains no ammonia and its raw materials are of the highest cosmetic quality. Naturtint is made up of a range of 28 different tones which can be mixed together to produce infinite color ranges so as to achieve a unique, personal tone. Naturtint completely covers all normal grey hair, its effects do not wash out and it is gentle on even the most fragile hair.

Who knew?

I was actually considering this when i was doing my research on colouring products. I still pick it up to read the info on the pack each time i go to the health food store. (its a strong possibility if ever i get fed up with henna)
For the time being I have settled for henna.....its plus points are numerous. (I have had so much breakage using chemical colouring).
Since having my locks installed I have noticed extra growth where I thought I'd never see growth again...I like to keep it that way with the use of natural colouring products.

The shade your chose suits your complexion!

How dark is your hair naturally? I have dark brown almost black hair. Just curious if you already had reddish brown highlights in your hair.

Shari, I hope that you check back here since you didn't leave an email address and there wasn't one on your site. My natural hair is black with a slight brownish tent that you'd have to really, really look hard to see. I basically just say that my natural hair color is black. Hope this helps. Thanks for visiting.

Hi Blaq, I've been to your sight several times prior to getting my sister locks. Actually seeing your locks help med decide to go for it. I have a problem and hope you can help. You said you don't recommend coloring until the hair is locked. I'm in my 3 months stage now and have lots of gray and is disparate and am thinking of coloring. What can I do to hide the grays. PLEASE HELP.
Thank you in advance
Marcy.
