Tips On Coloring Your Natural Hair

These tips are from experiences I learned when dying my natural hair.

It’s safe when it comes to dying your hair. You just have to make sure you follow the directions right. If you never dyed your hair before I would go to a professional stylist to get it done. Coloring your hair won’t change your natural textures.
For those that are comfortable dying your own hair and it’s your first time coloring your hair. I would start with temporary dye that has no ammonia and no peroxide, that way it will get you used to coloring your hair. Since the dye is temporary, you would be able to determine if you ever wanted to do it again and it will only last a short time.

Taking care of color treated hair

·        Once a week make sure you deep condition your hair. 
·        Every two days oil your scalp.
·        Drink plenty of water.
·        Use an everyday hair product that will keep your hair moisturized.

The main thing is keeping your hair moisturized. With any chemical you don’t want your hair to dry out, because that will cause breakage.
When you buy hair color, it always tells you to color your hair every 4-6 week to touch it up. For me that is too soon. I color my hair every 3 months or when a lot of my natural hair color is              showing.                                                                                              
My favorite hair color product is “Crème of Nature” and “Clairol Textures and Tones for Women of Color”.

Have You Ever Considered Dyeing Your Hair?

Ginny's Twist-Out

When I first did my two strand twist, I used hair grease on my hair only.  I kept them in my hair for two weeks. Then I decided to do a twist-out.

How I maintain my twist-out

  •    Every day before I shower I put any kind of oil in my hair
  •    Always wear a shower cap, causing the oil to work its way in
  •    Wear a scarf on my hair when I go to bed
  •    That’s it!

This style will last about another week or so. 

Ice Cream: Made With Bananas Only

Step by Step Instructions for One Ingredient Ice Cream

Creamy ice cream from just one ingredient.

Freeze the banana pieces for at least 
an hour or two.

Blend on high. Initially they will look
crumbly and piecemeal.

The mixture will probably get stuck a 

lot. Keep scraping down the bowl.


Suddenly, as you keep blending, you
will see a change. The bananas turn
creamy! Now is the time to add a
scoop of peanut butter or anything
else you care to mix in.

The ice cream will be the texture if soft
serve, but if you freeze again in an airtight
container, it will get harder and more
like ice cream.

How to make 1-ingredient ice cream…

1.Peel your bananas first.
2.Cut them into small pieces.
3.Freeze for just 1-2 hours on a plate.
4.Blend, blend, blend – scraping down the bowl when they stick.
Enjoy the magic moment when they turn into ice cream!

Have fun making your banana ice cream!!! Enjoy.
