This summer, if you’re thinking about coloring your hair using natural hair dye products, there are a few things that are necessary for you to be aware of. Today’s video goes into that and more. It’s easy to say, for example, ‘I want color treated hair’, but in the long run taking care of it can somewhat be challenging for some. As you will learn from Moknowshair, when you dye your hair it requires some attention on your part.
This video teaches the process by which you apply the dye and do a twist-out for style to go along with it. Most of the work though will continue behind the camera. No busy individual will sit through that for just one style and call it good.That’s why once you’re done watching this video I will provide you with links to Mo’s blog where she goes into, believe it or not, even more details.

(Per Mo’s Recommendation) In order to maintain this style you will need to put your hair in a pineapple or sleep on a satin pillowcase. In the morning when you’re getting ready to go you can just fluff it up. You also have the option to re-twist parts in few days. As far as the color go, to maintain that you will need to use sulfate-free shampoo, cover the hair with Aveda brilliant Damage Control or you can use Aphogee Restructurizer, when you swims or spend time in the sun, you can continue with your wash and go routine
Since all dyes fade over time you want the dwindling process to be as graceful as possible. For even more information on this topic, you need to read her tips for color treated hair. It’s an important read specifically for those who want to color and yet haven’t. It’s great for beginners.
She did a wonderful Lotta Body styling product review. I’m appreciative of the re-branding effort that Lotta body has gone through. The newly updated natural hair product design has given a modern flare to it. As a natural myself, I also like their attention to the natural hair community by adding natural products to their formula. It’s important to see their products at work in this video. Just wanted to throw some shout-outs them.
