Blonde Colored Dred Locs
When using gentle hair color, I really like "Nutritint" brand hair color, it only lightens the hair 3 levels at a time and doesn't have ammonia in it either, so you have better control as to how light you go. Each time you color the hair will light another 3 levels, just stop when you've reached the desired shade. I would say space out your color services to about every 2 months, so you don't over process your hair.
Loreal is good for at home color and so is Softsheen Carson line too.
If you use regular commercial color then you have to look at the number levels on the packaging, this will tell you how many shades lighter you will be going.
If you are a very dark brown, which is a level 1, then to get your hair to a level 9 which is a golden blonde, you need to think about simple adding (level 1+ level 9 = 10).
So your color level actually needs to be a 10 to get you to the level 9 that you want.
|Honey Blonde Colored Locs|
Because the ends of your locs are the most porous and will grab color quickly, The roots will also grab color and lighten quickly because of body heat from your scalp, that said, color the middle of your locs first, then the ends , then the roots so you can even distribution of color.
|Protein treatment to strengthen hair|
Make sure you condition your locs with a protein re constructor like Ultra Sheen Duo Tex. It full of collagen and it will strengthen your locs wonderfully after a color service.
I love this because it watery and goes into your locs easily washes out clean, you can follow up with a good leave in conditioner and please wash the color completely out or you might run the risk of weak straw-like locs.
Going blonde should really be done by a professional stylist, there are too many variables that can mess up your hair. But if your patient and brave you can do it at home with good results.
I love natural hair and Loc pictures and advice and I hope u do too. Thanks for reading and share your thoughts!
