DIY Diva: Clairol Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color
I've been in a little bit of a hair rut and needed a pick me up...color! I've rinsed my hair jet black in the past and figured now is as good a time as any to give it a go again. Now you all know by now how anal I am about the health of my hair, so I didn't want to use anything that would damage and undo all my hard work. So nothing permanent here :) I've heard great reviews of Clairol's Beautiful Collection and decided to give it a go. I headed down to Sally's and was happy to see that it only cost $5.99...I was sold. At the recommendation of the salesperson I purchased 2 bottles(she looked at the curly pouf on top of my head and handed me the 2nd bottle lol). So all in all the process was pretty simple. Washed my hair (w/ sulfate free shampoo), applied the color, put on plastic cap and sat under the dryer for 10 minutes, puttered around the house for the next 20 mins, and then rinsed it out. This is a semi-permanent color with no ammonia or peroxide so it is safe to use on natural or relaxed hair. Also, no drippies! I was so nervous that I was going to destroy my bathroom but no worries. So ladies if you're looking for a quick and inexpensive pick me up try a rinse or semi-permanent color. Be a DIY Diva!
Couple of tips:
Pay attn to your hair's moisture levels...color can tend to be drying for some textures.
Use an old throwaway towel to protect your clothing when applying the color.
