You may know by now that I'm a natural who doesn't mind coloring my hair. But there are many who want color and don't want to dye their real hair. One suggestion I make is to purchase and dye clip ins. It's an easy and fun way to 1) add color to your style and 2) add volume to your style.
My favorite company to order clip ins from is Big Chop Hair. I ordered the cork screw curls in 18" & 20". I ordered them in color 1b. I wanted to add some color and do an ombré effect. I used box color for each shade. I was a tad apprehensive about coloring the hair because I didn't want to damage it. I must say that I was amazed that the hair wasn't damaged and took the color treatment very well.
I deep conditioned the hair and couldn't wait to style my hair. I played with a few styles with the hair in its natural state but decided to rod the clip ins and do an up do. I used the clip ins in the top section to add some additional color and volume. I LOVE my clip ins. They also work great on my lazy days when I don't feel like really styling my hair, I pull my hair up and add the clip ins to do a cute puff or a bun.
For this style, I installed flat twists in the back/sides and curled the front. I used the clip ins throughout the front and blended them in with my hair to get volume. I separate slightly to keep really nice curl definition.
