What inspired me to dye my hair red??

If you haven’t noticed by now, I have red hair! I love it and it has really become a part of me. Prior to going natural, I had severe shedding and breakage, mainly due relaxing my hair, heat damage and color damage. My stylist at the time advised me to pick one, color or relaxer. So, obviously, I chose color!

As a child, I remember my mom freaking out when I told her I wanted red hair and freckles lol. It seemed as though I wasn’t loving the skin I was in. Fast forward to 20 years later and I am more fierce than ever with a full mane of vibrant red hair.

Much like any other Pinterest and Instagram obsessed naturalista I find a lot of inspiration for my looks and style from my curl friends. As I transitioned from relaxed hair, I knew that when I was fully natural that I wanted to get some color. I filled my Pinterest boards with a plethora of ideas but when it came down to it one shade stood out the most – red red.

Here are some of the ladies who inspired me to break out of my shell and rock my firey red mane.

  1. Red is your color. After 53 years of having black hair, I changed my hair color to blonde. I love it so much I am going to full white!

  2. That color looks FIRE on you! LOL! I’ve never felt bold enough to dye my hair red because it can also be challenging to remove. I tried doing a cinnamon brown (my hair is dark, cool brown) and it was disaster! LOL! Anyway, it looks like you’ve a great “hair lane” for yourself and it looks amazing!

  3. I love your hair. I tried doing red for my hair years ago and I loved it but my hair didn’t like it that much so I had to go back to my ‘natural’ color so my hair will become healthy. I want to do some red again soon.

  4. I adore your red hair! It looks great on you! I am a natural “ginger” and I am always excited for those super jazzed to join the red hair club. Keep on being fabulous!

  5. I love red hair – and you look absolutely fabulous with yours! I always wanted to have red hair but my features are totally incompatible with the colour. Oh well, I still admire it – on others!
