I don't blame you! Sometimes I feel that my hair color is just blah. But I don't know if an at-home coloring kit would work on black hair, for highlights. Please, post pictures of your results! I'm sure it'll look gorgeous!!!

Same here! My hairs too dark to change and i don't want to mess it up. Besides, there's not many curly heads around here. And the ones that are here, are fried...dyed...and damaged. I'm a healthy natural color and curl, curly girl here. So i think i stand out by just being that.

Flat looking colour can be improved by adding shine. You have gorgeous hair and i'm afraid for you that colouring will damage it and it will still look flat, just a different shade of flat. It actually might even look more flat.

I just tried Garnier Fructis sleek finish spray and it gave amazingly light shiny results. My hair looked so much better after I used it.

It does not contain silicones but it does have paraffinum liquidum, which I think is a type of wax and may not be CG.

Thank you, your curls are gorgeous too! I was thinking the same though, i was considering doing my leave in, then an oil, then my gel? Does that add shine? Or maybe using a serum. Like the one from Loreal that's silicone free.

I bought L'oreal Silicone free serum, and used it before my mousse and gel and it gave me some pretty shine. my hair still seems a little boring but it's better than nothing. definitely gonna keep healthy and not dye!

Good for you.

You don't know what you've got til it's gone... that is the mantra for people who think they must colour their hair!

Healthy hair of any colour, even grey, is so much nicer than fried dried out frizzy hair.

While you are young and your skin is firm, dark hair is soooo beautiful.
As you age, darker hair is too harsh on aging complexion, so most mature women tend to use lighter colours, even going to blonde, or rocking the gray hair.

Enjoy your rich dark hair while you have it!!!
