Dye’in for coloured hair

This Barbie doll looks awesome! #DivaDoll #DarkSkinColouredHair

I was all over my Pinterest and Tumblr looking at coloured hair (but more specifically coloured hair on dark skin #DarkSkinColouredHair) and I found all kinds of hair-spiration that I just needed to try! I really want to dye my hair or try a different look, plus I find it thrilling of going pastel for spring (yeah it’s not outrageous but I’ve only been one colour like FOREVER!).  Take a look…

Love the full frow!

HEY! If you know the Bloggers from these pics let me know so I can link them to their blogs! Such beauty deserves to be recognized other than Pinterest!

Do you have a colour that you want to dye your hair in? Yeah? Then do tell me the colour and what was your Hair-spiration? Or Nah!…WHY!? Was it a BIG mistake? Do tell.

OOH! If you want…SHOW ME so I can blog YOU! Tag with either #AllTonesAllShades or #DarkSkinColouredHair (I like hashtags, not sure if you noticed).

Thanks for reading!

Happy Dyein’!

Nailed the Novelty

I was on Avon UK’s Instagram and look I instantly snapped the sweet novelty nail designs to recreate myself! These look pretty easy to recreate without an How To (plus I written up a How To and somehow I managed to delete itself so now I can’t be asked…sorry). So cute right!

If it weren’t a obv trend last year then it’s very clear now that more and more African/Caribbean/African American women are going natural (no not nude), natural hair. Weave/extention, Lace (etc) is a costly beauty regiment that women of colour tend to go thought to achieve their hair to become beautiful, fashionable and manageable. Now I believe women of colour have come to a time rebelling against the social norm of what’s “right” and going back to black, back to natural, back to their roots! No more long seating in the salon chair, no more expensiveness on hair and less of the pain. I am one of those women who have taken off the Brazilian piece and opted for my own and with a little oil, maintenance and a lot of love and care our hair will be as supreme as the Supremes! So why not be like every other women and have my own hair out because really…are we just growing our natural hair just for the sake of growing to the point we reach our golden years till we won’t care? In that case whats the point of having long strong grey locks when you can wear your strong lovely hair NOW!…

…and so what if you’re not great with natural? If it goes a little pear shaped just cornrow, pop on a wig and go again!

 

Here’s some the natural mistresses of beauty I pinned along the week (and some style ideas/tips too).

Sugar comes to mind...I'm sure there are nail polishes with this 3D texture effect but how about using glitter, sugar (coloured with colouring by you or from the box) or even just sprinkles? How sweet is that? Not pratical but who cares!

Beauty review: Superdrugs Instant Colour Hairspray “Pink Punch”

For a long time now I’ve been wanting a change in style, not just the clothing but head to toe. I didn’t wanna go though the whole drama of hair dying and chemicals because I have Virgin Remi Brazilian weave and to bleach, dye as well as heat styling would eventually lose the beautiful texture just like as if it were my natural hair. It’s a chemical for a reason. Well what’s quick, easy also vibrant without the damage? Who wants to stay one colour for long? I need my hair to keep up with my personality.

I’m reviewing Superdrugs Instant Colour Hairspray in Pink Punch to see whether that 5* customer rating really was worth it and to tell you how I got on.

I eagerly went into my local Superdrug and bought the spray, at first I thought Superdrug weren’t going to have the spray in stock and that only big Superdrug stores would have the item…well I was wrong. Later that evening I took a piece of my hair following what the pressurised can told me (not before shielding my clothing) and sprayed away to my desire. I was instantly happy!…

Spray on n wash out! And in colours Red, White, Black and Blue.

Spray on n wash out! And in colours Red, White, Black and Blue.

HOWEVER…

Because of my brown hair the colour came out bright Purple and as time went on (give or take 3-4 hours) my hair changed into a darkish Pinky purple! LOOK!

In the afternoon not long applied.

Later on in the evening!

Later on in the evening!

I’ll be honest I was kinda expecting Pink after I gassed myself up to go so bold (I haven’t left my house yet…it’s easy to do things like this indoors away from the gazes of on looking strangers…) but I’m happy because it’s still a lovely colour and of course I now know the colour may vary depending on the shade of your hair. Plus the spray didn’t last as long as I’d hope but I did use it quite a bit in the short space of 24hrs (the first try I coloured only two front sections of my hair, as for the second day I coloured all my tips) besides with the price of £2.99 theres not much argument so I give Superdrugs Instant Colour Hairspray in Pink Punch

♥♥♥ out of 5!

I hope my review was some help to you and if you decide to wear your hair as vibrate as mine, show me a selfie at @leleloves72 via twitter or post your look direct to me (at least that’s what I think the new upgrade was enabling) on Instagram at leleloves72.

Happy Beautifying!
