i'm so tired of my bsl dark curly hair...
I want to do something to spice it up
I'm scared to dye it because it might leave my hair dry and I don't want it to look ugly next to my slightly darker then beyonce skin color .
Id like to cut it but i'm scared it will be thinner as my hair tends to lose curl and be thinner when i cut and i love volume
Hey I'm a like Beyoncé s color , and my hair is like honey blonde naturally, I heard henna can dye hair but for darker colors , I'm thinking od doing my bottom half

hey! look into honey treatments... raw honey can lighten hair by releasing a low dose of peroxide. You're not going to get super light results (and you have to do a few treatments) but it might give you something a little different with minimal damage. Since you lighten incrementally, you can stop if you feel like it's drying out your hair.

I haven't tried myself but I probably will in the next few months. I htink there are threads on the long hair community boards.

^honey is for going lighter. If you want to go red-er or have a red cast you can try henna.

I wanted to add that if your hair is losing curl and looking thinner after a cut, it's probably because the stylist you're going to does not know how to cut curly hair. Curly hair should never be thinned! I would recommend looking on the salon section of this site and seeing if there are any salons in your area that specialize in curly hair cuts.

If there aren't any or you can't go to any, look at some suggestions from Tiffany of Live Curly Live Free on what to tell your current stylist: What Should I Tell My Stylist?

Henna will give dark hair red highlights that will be most obvious in the sun, so might be an option for you if you want a change but not a big one. The caveat is that henna is permanent. There are occasional instances where it fades, or can be lightened, but in general if you do henna you have to be committed to it, because you'll have to grow it out. The last time I hennaed was three years ago, and I still have the color on the ends of my hair, just as strong as when I did it. So strand test first, and be sure it's what you want.
