it’s summer

a time of the year that’s filled with light.

since coming back to los angeles, i found myself wanting more dimension to my hair, so i decided to lighten it! i did some research on hair dye that would be the least damaging to my squiggly hair, and i ended up going with a box of the naturtint brand.  so, friday night i say in my room and attempted to do an ombre… it worked better on one side than on the other, haha! at first i was considering lightening my ends a bit more, but i’m happy with how it turned out! in getting used to the change, i’ve found it looks blonder in some light, and darker in other light–it also depends on how wet or dry my hair is. it’s been three (?) years since i colored my hair last (pre-going natural/my big chop). the last time i got highlights (you know that look with the kinda chunky thick highlights that was really popular a while ago?) and this time i wanted something a little different. i still highlighted some strands, but most of the dye was concentrated on the bottom third of my curls. & here’s how it came out!!

(p.s. to all you curly haired girls out there ;)…these images were taken when my hair was dry/stretched. also, i just discovered that the right amount of raw, unrefined shea butter & this new gel i started using can add weight to my curls. the right amount of weight = curl definition!! it looked super cool and i’m so excited to have found a new way of styling my hair! i haven’t photographed myself with that style but i’m sure it’ll turn up in a photo at some point. ;))
