    I have always played kitchen beautician with my hair with mixed results. By the time I went natural i was pretty good at knowing my limitations. A few things I noticed d as mentioned in the article above. When I was wearing a wash and go style if I colored my hair the ends simply would not curl. The addition of the color made it look like I was transitioning and still hanging onto 1 -2 inches of permed hair. I never used henna, but found that if I used hair dyes specifically formula for African American hair, not only did the color take better, my hair felt less dry. I am loc’d now and still color my hair. I always wash my hair out in the shower and make sure that the water runs completely clear to ensure that all the excess dye has been rinse out.

    I love color but I hated retouching when the color grew out. I stopped coloring my hair because my hair became dry especially the ends. I recommend to deep condition your hair as much as you can because color will dry your hair out.
