I have regularly coloured my hair since I went natural, more especially when my hair was short because there was not much else I could do with it. However since I started taking my hair’s health seriously, I have stepped away from the constant dyeing and it had been about 6-8 months since dye last touched my tresses. But then I see these pictures…. …and start missing my dyed days.
So I headed to Clicks and got myself Inecto Henna burgundy hair dye shown below…
Now of course I didnt expect my hair to turn the colour of the box, I knew because I have black hair to begin with the colour wouldn’t show as much. I did plan to use a honey and lemon concoction as a natural lightener first (instructions here) but it seemed so tedious so I abandoned the idea pretty quickly. I had brown ends already so I expected my ends to go burgundy at least. So I followed the steps, I was so excited I took pics!
I kept it on for 30 minutes like the instructions said and excitedly rinsed it off expecting hints of burgundy…but instead I got this:
Jet black hair! Arrrrgggghhhhh!!!! My cousin was the first to see me the next day and before I could say anything she said “Why is your hair so black?” Sigh, Inecto, joke’s on me!
