Natural Hair | Coloring My Natural Hair

Hello Beauties!

Before coloring my hair a few weeks ago, I hinted in a previous post that my thoughts had been focusing on color.  Years ago, color was my thing.  Before receiving the keratin treatment that prompted me to return to my hair's natural state, highlights were my staple.  After going natural, I was primarily focused on hair health and growth.  Now that I'm back to short hair, don't care, I wanted something to take it up a notch.


...and take it up a notch, I did!  When I made up my mind to have my hair colored, I decided to go for a consultation and then before I knew it, I was posting on Instagram that I made an appointment for the same week.  Wow!

Since coloring my hair, I have received quite a few questions on the color and process.

Below is a FAQ list on my coloring experience:

1.  Did You Color Your Own Hair?

No, I did not.  I went to Tiffany Denae at Posh Concepts in Raleigh, North Carolina.

2.  Is There a Consultation Fee?

Yes.  The consultation fee for Tiffany Denae is $10.

3.  What Color is Your Hair?

I do not have a specific color for my hair.  According to Tiffany, she lifted my hair to a Level 6 then highlighted the front by selecting front pieces and lifting a few more levels with lightner at the lowest volume.

4.  What Did She Use to Twist Your Hair?

Tiffany used As I Am Twist Defining Cream.

5.  Is Color Drying?

Yes, it is; however, deep conditioning your hair once a week is the key along with using moisturizing products.

Bonus Tip

Be sure to not scratch your scalp before coloring.  Due to the color being a chemical, it can cause scalp irritation.

  7. Thank you! I was a little afraid myself, but I think taking the plunge with cutting my hair this summer lessened my fear a LOT because that was downright scary. I say if you find a great, trustworthy colorist, GO FOR IT!
