How to Successfully Dye Afro Hair Blonde or Brunette by Yourself at Home
Want to try a new hair colour and save some Ps? Then a DIY dye job might be for you. While dyeing your Afro hair by yourself terrifies all hairstylists and most people, I've done all the damage to my hair already so you don't have to. So before you slather on a box dye or just any old bleach, heed some of my tips ahead.
I've been dyeing my own hair for the past two years. I have naturally dark, 4a Afro hair that I've managed to lighten on different occasions to a light blonde, dark blonde, and medium brown, so I don't have much personal experience with painterly colours (like pink or blue). Also, keep in mind that I am not a professional, just a normal naturalista who isn't scared of her hair breaking off and who loves to experiment with DIY beauty. On that note, if you're going for a light blonde fro, then your hair will definitely break off, so be prepared for that. No matter how many incredible protein treatments you use, no matter how top notch your haircare routine is, your hair will break, mark my words. Also, bleach will most definitely loosen your curl pattern, so if you're cool with that, then we're good to go.
