I hope that all is well with everyone. As I've mentioned on here, I've been wanting to color my hair for awhile. And recently purchased a box of color.
Well, I finally got around to applying it to my hair. I would love to tell, and show you that the color exceeded my expectations. However, that is not the case. I am less than pleased with the results.
|Can you see any color here???......|
Absolutely. No. Damn. Color.
|Yes, I know I need to trim. Lol.|
Well, not really. It's some there. Barely there. You may be able to see a little difference in sunlight, but that's not what I was going for. I wanted a more dramatic change. One you could notice in dim lighting.
Granted, I've hennaed my hair quite a few times in the past. Well..around 6 or 7 or 8 times, but I was hoping that this would not be an issue at this point. After twitter-versing with Aleise J. of HairLovAart Studio, she reiterated something that I've heard many times about henna but just did not want to believe. At least not for myself. That it does not wash or fade out from your hair. You must grow it out. *Boo!*
Now this would not be an issue if a) my hair was short and more importantly, b) I was a patient person. *sighs* Oh, well. I suppose my true color adventures will have to begin once I do my 2nd bc. (Yes, I'm still talking about that.) She also mentioned that the color level I chose, 4C, would only result in a slight shift in pigment. (Which was all it gave me). Too low of an ammonia amount.
I tried. *shrugs.*
