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.
