Default Best dye for curlies?

Hey what's up everyone,

I really want to dye my hair for a fresh summer look. What's the best dye for 3C/4A curlies?

Of course I don't want damage, so I want to filter out any dangers out there.

Has anyone ever tried Aveda hair dye? If so, did you like it? I read Aveda is plant-based but every dye regardless still has ammonia.

I'm told that although Henna is also plant based, I will not see a drastic change in color.

Then there are dyes out there that will completely change the structure of your hair, making it brittle.

I really want to get highlights but if it's too much of a risk..shoot I will use those beauty store hair color spray if I have to.

You know, Ive been meaning to ask you how exactly you do this and what you use. Your hair looks amazing and ive been wanting blonde curls for awhile. I also noticed your roots are dark, which mine are too, so im very curious. If you care to share (: please

sorry for guano.


If you arent looking to lighten, i suggest a coloured gloss. Well actually, although ive read they deposit color.. the woman at the salon lightened my roots with a gloss. Im incredibly confused. Lol

But i think glosses are great, it really gives you shine, and a bit of color if you like. Though it does wash out after a month or two (which i wasnt told..darn stylist).

hth somehow.. lol

I have fine porous hair, but I've lightened it a few shades with Sun-In.. terrible stuff, but it doesn't seem as damaging as using box color.

It does dry out my hair, so I am dc-ing with protein a lot more (minimum once a week).
