My hair is thick and wavy. Whenever it gets wet, it frizzes up in .005 seconds. It is dark brown and I tried to color in a reddish color, but it never showed! However, I stood directly under the sun and you could see the color. But it washed out overtime so I'm back to my dark brown color. Right now it is in braids because I'm in college. I know I will not get my hair permed up here! XD



The color didn't show becuase your hair is dark, like mine. You have to bleach it white so that other colors will catch on. That's what I've been told anyway and it's what I do if I want to dye small portions of my hair. You can try asking around for other ways however =P


Yeah, I don't think my hair can tolerate bleach. I am African American so I don't think bleaching it white will make it look nice. XD It will probably fall out. But your advice is exactly what I thought of when it never showed.

Yay, I'll actually give an answer this time. When I was a baby my hair was extremely curly. I have no idea why. No one in my family has curly hair. However, as I got older, my hair became less curly and now it's just straight. And purple. I've been dying it for almost a decade. Yay dye. I'm currently letting it grow after years of having relatively short hair. When I was little my hair was very, very long. Then I got it cut for some reason and stuck with that for a while. But now I want long hair again~

Not quite. Obviously since her hair is dark brown she'll need to bleach it if she wishes for dye to show up; however, it doesn't need to be white. The only time someone needs their hair to be that light is if they're planning on using Cupcake Pink.

not gonna lie. I love my hair. I've dyed it a million and two times and it's still shiny and soft and that makes me really happy. However, it's straight and a little boring. I experiment with side pony's and head bands moreso than textures. Too much work, the latter.

I heard Bleaching your hair turned it to basically straw? Does that happen to everyone? Or just certain really dark types =\

:) Nope. Mine's still as healthy as ever.

My sister bleached her hair once and it turned really gummy, though. So I guess it's different for everyone.

Black/DarkBrown. Naturally Wavy/Curly, I personally like my hair straight so I straighten but people say it looks better curly cause my curls are like big curls if u guys get what I mean lol. Shiny. It use to be long but I recently cut it because i was bored of it haha.

You can see in my avatar...that picture was few months ago...

Curly hair does suck sometimes. I don't know why but as my hair grows, it turns into a giant afro wannabe looking helmet.

I'm not sure what color it is, but when I bleached it, it looked pretty whitish to me (or a very light color). I don't know really know since I've only done it once and I'm not a hairstylist. Thanks for correcting me.

Naw, it didn't happen to me. I only bleached it in certain parts; those parts are a whole lot more coarse then my normal hair, get tangled up a lot more than my normal hair, and sometimes appear a bit bushy. Otherwise, my hair wasn't very damaged.

Haha, don't do it if you don't think your hair can withstand it. I wouldn't really recommend bleaching at all for anyone. It's a scary thought, bleaching your hair.
