 Another hot topic that’s prevalent when discussing hair maintenance issues with women and men are complaints of various beauticians handling their hair too rough or not being patient enough with their hair. This is another reason for the reluctance of going natural or staying natural for many people. Black hair is easier to take care of once there is a plan put in place. The word to top the list on this hair care plan should be patience. I’m sure you would agree that Black hair is ultra strong and it requires some time and care to keep it in tip top shape.

Women who don’t know the proper way of taking care of their hair may get frustrated when they attempt to comb through their hair for instance. What so many women don’t know is that like most things in the world, their kinky curly hair can be nourished back to life to the point where it will be super easy to take care of. Initially, In order for a woman to find the task of doing her hair fun, she would need to find an efficient hair styling method to use in order to keep the hair maintained and beautiful. If not, the effects can be quite damaging to the hair.

Each day more black women are going natural. Women are starting to get creative with their locks too. Although natural hair can be challenging to maintain, some women seem to have found a ‘tried and true’ methodology to take care of their hair in a beautiful way. On the other hand there are still women who haven’t found their way in styling their strong sassy roots yet. There are plenty ways to stay in the loop when it comes to hair. The internet and hair magazines are just some of the ways to educate yourself on hair across the board. Women should read all the can about natural hair care so they can sharpen their skill set with maintaining their hair. I suggest searching for specific sites online, or asking other women about how they care for their too for some wonderful ideas they too can try on their hair. Research and education will go a long way in the life of hair if you just take the first step towards knowing what you want by figuring out what’s out there. Enjoy the sights along the way!

Which Hair Color Options Look Best With Brown Skin?

Hair coloring is one of the most amazing trends! If you’re looking to renew your look with some type of makeover, why not start with your hair color? The primary concern with most women is not knowing which color to pick for dying their hair. Let’s see where to start, well all the hot magazines usually say it all depends on what your eye color is foremost. What if you have dark brown eyes?  Then lightening your hair would be a great way to accent your eye color. If you have light colored eyes the rule is to keep your hair color darker. The contrast of light and dark give the effect of making your eyes POP!

Other stylists say they prefer to see black hair on darker skin, with maybe a few light brown highlights instead of taking the entire head of hair up to a lighter brown, highlights typically look fantastic and sexy!

I once heard a woman say that no brand of hair dye really works good on black hair because black hair is usually deep black or a dark brown. There are solutions out there though, one may even opt for a rich red color too. Dark hair is may not take most hair color easily especially if you’re going lighter. The sure way to get color to show on dark hair is to lift the color. Most professional salons can help you here. Lightening hair is a lengthy process but the end result is quite nice!

There are brands in the grocery store that you can work with at home for a new look. All colors pretty much work the same except for the darker colors since they are more longer lasting typically. Look for hair color especially made for black hair as a start. However, you never want to grab the first brand you see when you’re in a store. For example, an herbal essence brand may not be a good option since it will probably dry your hair out. Go black, since generally you can expect the hair color brands for black hair to have a good moisturizer in them.

I’ve heard from a couple women that the best brand of hair color to use on black hair is Adore. You can find it at major beauty supplies stores. Considering, your existing hair color you may need to lighten it first with hair peroxide. Usually its number 20 for lightening darker hair or number 10 for lighter hair, Sometimes number 30 peroxide is used but keep in mind the stronger the peroxide, the more damage is done to your hair.

What if you want color but want to just refresh your look but don’t want anything too drastic? Commonly the color brown is seen as more natural, or you could opt for a deep brown which is a brilliant look for complimenting brown skin. If you want to jazz it up a bit use a little red color with it. If you think the color black or dark brown is too dark for your skin completion, I would do light brown and add some chunks of various light brown tones too. Alternately you could do a warm but deep, rich, chocolate brown. Feisty!

Still need some help with choosing a color? Is your hair naturally brown or already dyed? Don’t get too confused with what to do about this future fly hair you’ll soon have! Instead just write down a couple notes if you like and find a couple looks online or offline that you like then take trip to the local hair salon and ask for their honest option. Why do you have to do all this homework? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Hair coloring can really strip your natural hair color. If you want to reduce the damage or have none at all. Seek a professional or follow directions like you’re reading and following a freaking treasure map! Trust me. You really don’t want to damage your hair. You’re goal is to enhance your look, yes!?

Last if u are simply looking for a small change in your appearance, I recommend looking into going with highlights or low lights, you could do wider or thinner lines of color, there are many ways to have it done. One last thing, I heard the brand in most grocery stores called Garnier Nutrisse is superb. They have more dark colors than most brands and their dye has avocado oil in it too, so doesn’t smell so strong. That’s all for now, Keep it simple, have fun with your hair and work it.

Some of The Best Options for Black Hair Color

When you think of all the options out there to dye your hair with you might get confused a bit in the process of it all. After years of practice with hair coloring I’m here to tell you about the good solutions for you to try, but also to tell you what others have said absolutely works like a charm for them.

Changing the color of natural black hair can be quite a task if you don’t know what to look for or what to do. So lets start with some of the better solutions first to get you on track with this hair color transformational thing. One of the most popular products to use for dying your hair to a long lasting color is Clairol Texture and Tones Permanent Hair color, next on the list is Cream of Natures brand of hair color or Dark and Lovely Hair Color. These brands have been on the market for over 20 years at least. You can count on them for predictable results. Many beauticians say these brands are true to bringing out the color that is on the box. In other words what you see is what you get.

Some people still argue that at home hair coloring is not a wonderful idea for newbie hair colorists. Professional stylists often say that it’s safer to get your hair permanently dyed by a beautician. Their reasons for saying this is because of the mistakes that can happen as a result of a person not following directions. For instance if you don’t rinse the hair dye out of your hair all the way or well enough, you could expect to have some possible issues with hair breakage perhaps. In addition no one wants you to get hair color in your eyes or to leave the color solution on your skin for longer than absolutely necessary to do so. Again, professionals know what to do, so its a bit safer to hire someone plus you may need a day off anyway.

The risk of damaging your hair by doing a permanent coloring on your hair at home is higher some might say. So, as a precaution if you prefer not to go to the beautician or you don’t want to pay out the money for one there are still some great options. Let’s say that you don’t know which hair color you want. You could always visit Sally’s beauty supply for Jazzy’s Semi-Permanent Hair Color. There are so many unique colors to choose from too. The nice thing about Jazzy’s is that it’s just temporary so it always washes out after seven shampoos it’s definitely a far healthier solution than the permanent stuff. Jazzy’s is what you would call a ‘color rinse’ so it contains no ammonia or peroxide, but also the color comes out deep and bold.

Pick your colors wisely. You can try out the temporary color before you go to the permanent stuff. That way you wear it for a while then if like the way it looks on you and want the color permanently you can have a beautician dye your hair that color. Be mindful as you choose a color to wear because ‘jet-black’ will be hard to lighten with another color. If you choose a permanent black color just make sure it’s a color you want to wear for a long time.

There are many lovely colors that look good next to brown skin. Some of the colors you should check out are, deep reds, chocolatey browns, light browns or even burgundy colors too. Have fun and no matter what you still look stunning!

The Simple Way to Transition from Permed To Natural Hair

400990_4540366241824_1077034282_n(1)Hair, hair and more hair is all you hear black women talking about nowadays. Almost everything from the design and style to the color and texture. Black hair can be so diverse to have. All-natural hair is quite common right now but also making a strong come back in the year 2012. Hair is so important to so many women since hair is one of the first things you see on them. With the new energy of heightened positivity in the world, more men and women are savoring the benefits of living a brighter, more easier life. Consequently, more women are also wanting to reverse the appearance of their hair to a more stress-free look.

Black hair is stunning when it’s worked well. If it’s not, curly hair can be a fairly unsettled subject matter to cope with. One of the main considerations in the black community and precisely with African American women is the permed verses natural hair saga. One of the largest difficulties with women leaving their permed straight hair for natural hair is the (hair length loss factor). That was a tongue twister!

What I’m speaking of is the way that African hair has a tendency to normally be springy, tight coily and kinky curly. There is so much one can do to their hair when they enable it to grow out chemical free. On the other hand most women don’t care anything about that but would much rather have their hair length instead.

Most major hair transitions take time. Switching from chemical to naturally treated hair is a significant phase in ones’ life. This is definitely the case with permed to natural hair. There are some obvious changes that have to happen in order for a woman to successfully have the head of hair that she desires. For one, the perm kit days are over as soon as she decides no more straight hair. Now instead of continuing to care for her hair with chemically treated products, a woman may usually switch to using organic, holistic products on her hair since it just makes sense.
