My hair has been subjected to numerous experiments over the years, from dying it to weird and wonderful colours, to bleaching the life out of it and even once perming it so tightly I resembled a 80's footballer. A few years ago I made my peace with it and decided to go completely natural I cut all my hair off stripped the remaining colour out and just let it grow, a long and arduous task but well worth it. But recently I've grown tired of the same hair day in day out  and decided to give it a bit of colour but in a way that it wouldn't damage my hair and put me straight back to square one.

The first time I used Directions was back in 2010, I dyed my hair bright red and when I say bright I mean I bared a family resemblance to a certain famous clown. But I had bleached it prior to get that shade, which really damaged my hair. So I decided to see what would happen if I used it just on my natural locks.




What You Need:
- Clips
- Gloves
Directions Hair Dye - I used Alpine Green
- Colour Brush & Bowl (Optional)

1. Make sure you don't have any product In your hair, If there is wash it with a Ph Netural shampoo - Like this one from Simple.
2. Clip up the top section of your hair and apply it half way up, make sure there's not a straight line of the new colour, you want it to blend.
3. Let more hair down and repeat the process until all sections are covered.
4. Leave for 15 mins and wash out ( Use a dark towel it stains! )


I'm so happy with the end result, I really wasn't expecting it to take so well to my natural hair but its come out really bright with different shades of green. Its semi-permanent so its meant to wash out within 4 - 6 weeks - I might try another shade next time ooooh its so exciting, what colour shall I go next?
