Natural Hair Color Bold and Beautiful.

I really really really want to color my natural hair. Although I just went natural and I should be focusing on perfecting my regimen I can’t help but stare at pictures of gorgeous naturals with amazing daring hair colors.

Wow, my third big chop… when I think about how long my hair would’ve been if I never big chopped the first time… Actually let me not. I BC’d the second time because my hair was consuming my life.
