Fighting the urge to indulge in vibrant hair color? Shying away from hair matrimony, a.k.a. color commitment? Constantly admiring the rainbow locks of your fellow naturalistas, but too timid to join the fun? Dying your hair can be an emotional, stressful, and costly experience, but innovative minds have joined forces to create a do-it-yourself natural dye that seems far too easy (and way too inexpensive) to be true. 4C hair chick Luv Mika details her impulse to color her hair in her Youtube video, “Color Natural 4C Hair with Cream Eyeshadow”.
“Although I wanted to color my hair, I wasn’t ready to commit to the entire process of using dyes or even henna,” Mika states in the video. “I found a super easy, inexpensive, and most importantly, temporary way to give my hair a vibrant color.”
Using cream eye shadow, Mika transforms the color of her hair right before our eyes (or at least through our computer screens). After applying Painted Purple by Maybeline New York Eyestudio Color Tattoo to her moisturized 4C hair, Mika is rewarded with a vibrant purplish-blue hue.
