Spring-Tastic Natural Hair Color Ideas

No matter how long the winter SPRING is sure to follow. And thank Goodness!  I’m so ready for long(er) walks, longer days, and warmer weather. I have seen enough browns and grays during the fall and winter to last me a lifetime. So, I’ve been on the look out for colors that will help brighten my look, and since it’s part of my obsessions, I’m starting with my hair color for natural hair.

Here are the boldest natural hair colors I’ve seen that have helped brighten up my outlook for spring. These natural hair colors make me happy. And who doesn’t need more happy?

My Natural Hair Bucket List

bucketlistSince I went natural in August of 2014, I have come up with SO many products, accessories, colors and styles that I want to try out on my hair. And I’ve actually done ALOT. I’ve colored it seven times, done two big chops, and tried out about 8 unique styles and have accrued about 2 bags of accessories, and I’m no where near stopping. But there are some major natural hair bucket list items that I’m totally fixated on.

Not everybody is going to agree with my choices, but the way my life set up. . I don’t really care!

Figure out a go-to head wrap style, and rock the crap out of it. If I can just get ONE wrap down, I’m doing it.

Try crochet braids. I mean, I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the styles my naturalista sisters have come up with. I’ve got to try at least one.

Wear super long braids. . preferably to Jamaica. This one will be tricky because I have debilitating migraines that are FINALLY under control. But a girl can hope. Right?
