Care to share some advice about black hair dye?
I have naturally dark brown hair that has a fair amount of greys (in my twenties... thanks mom... ha!). I've been using black hair dye (boxed) for years now because of that but hate the way it damages and makes my hair feel. I keep doing it to cover the greys and don't have much of a colour choice other than black thanks to it being notoriously hard to remove. I'd like to get out of this vicious cycle, but am not really sure where to start.
Would using a dark brown to cover the greys work? Could I try indigo or henna? Am I stuck with black? I can't go back in time to stop myself from doing it in the first place, so I'd like to make the best of it. I like my hair colour, but would like some advice from others who have been where I am to hopefully transition out of my predicament.
I'm a proud 3a and growing it out until it's 5 feet long (or maybe a bit less)
Right now I am using:
Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
Live Clean Fresh Water Leave-in
Suave Naturals Strawberry as a cowash
Live Clean Exotic Shine Shampoo (as needed)
An occasional ACV rinse
Deva Curl AnGEL
... However, my routine is looking for a change!
