Spitzed with my herbal tea blend, added some Curls Whipped Cream (trying to get rid of it, sealed with Qhemet OHHB (did I get that abbreviation right?) and put it in a french twist, secured with a claw clip. I have no creativity this week. I might finish out the workweek this way.

@danielle: Your color will lighten up over the next couple of weeks but take care to protect it from too much sunlight. If you want a lighter color, try a developer with a higher lift next time, just enough to get the color you want.

That was my main concern with using permanent color. I want my hair to be red enough you can see it but not brassy. I've been coloring my hair for almost 20 years off and on and auburn is always the hardest for me to get right. I usually get there by mistake.

What kind of color did you use? This is random, but when I was going auburn I loved wella color charm gel color in #347, Dark Auburn. It gave good results on dark brown or black hair and covered grays well.

I used Garnier Nutrisse in Medium Auburn. I liked the results I had with the semi-permanent HerbalShine.

Misted twists with ApHogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer, applied ZB Vanilla Mint Hair Serum, and worked in some ZB Green Tea Hair and Body Butter to seal.

Clarified my hair with BS sugar cane shampoo. (had to wash the stretch curlee out of my hair (yuck)
Deep conditioned with Moptop deep conditioner
WnG with Soft Curl Creme and Kinky pudding.
Used BS Avocado butter on a couple of dry frizzy pieces and put magic curls puree (new formula to which I added honey) on top. Hair is very curly with a nice shine. A little crunchy but much much better than the BS Stretch gelee.

Day 3 of a WnG with Botanical Spirits Soft curls and kinky pudding. Love these products. The kinky pudding is much more moisturizing than before (must be a revised formula because it is creamier and lighter) and it gives me soft ringlets.

The other night i dampened my hair with my spray bottle in sections.
Added garnier fructis curl n shine leave in/mixed silk leave in/and a teensy dab os garnier 3min mask.
Added shea butter and detangled each section with wide tooth comb following with TT.
Twisted them going all different directions;looking crazy l0l.

I unraveled the twist last night before i went to the gym and rubbed some kbb hair cream through them.
Today wet my hands and smoothed down the front/sides and added a spray of braid spray and sealed with oyin bsp.
Sprayed protective mist bodifier in hands and rubbed through the length.
Pulled my hair back with hairzing and kind of lightly twirled and clipped the back.



Basically just a messy updo.

last night: wore a bonnet over a dry 1st day WnG

this morning: patted and scrunched in Grapeseed oil ....then sprayed with water ...then whipped my hurr back and forth

I think i prefer the outcome of the tri-napple overnight for 2nd day, & that bit of extra s-t-r-e-t-c-h from the rabbit tails.

today it's a bit smaller than before.

The plan: WnG to test out the fantasia IC gel. If that's a fail I'm testing out the ecostyler pink gel by doing by Eco + CIAB combo which always = da bomb
