How To: Color Your Curls Temporarily

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

I already went through the bleach/dye phase of my natural hair journey, but this gray hair trend had me reconsidering.

Dying your hair is expensive, time consuming and most of all DAMAGING to your curls. I found a SAFE, temporary, easy and affordable way to get vibrantly colored curls by using...drumroll please...Cream gel eyeshadow!

I used Maybelline's Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Audacious Asphalt #15 to be exact. 

APPLICATION - Applying the shadow to my hair was a little hard at first, but I got the hang of it. Sectioning my hair into small workable parts made it easy for me to pinch my curls in between the eye shadow pot and my thumb and smoothly glide down the length on my hair.  
TIP *be sure to use gloves for a mess free application.*

CLEANUP - I was surprised of how intense and long-lasting the color stayed on my curls (no sealing necessary). When wash day rolled around it was quick and easy to rinse out the product with my favorite conditioner and my curls weren't dry at all.

I can't wait to try all of the colors!
