I Dyed My Locs Blue!

Didn’t I tell you it was time for a new color?! Well, here is my new hair color… Blue Loc Highlights! And I am in absolute LOVE!

The process to achieve the blue color was very similar to when I dyed my Sisterlocks purple [HERE], except this time I did it myself….
First, I selected which locs I wanted to highlight, which was about every other one, and then I lifted my natural hair color to blonde.  

After the first shampoo, you can see how soft and loose my curl pattern is, but my hair is still staying loc’d. I didn’t even use my stocking cap and honestly I was surprised at their staying power. I know, I know you can also still see the locs that are green (*face palm*) but I was not going to lift then again because they’re already blonde underneath the green semi-permanent color. 
Then I applied the blue hair color, which is semi-permanent so it will rinse out over time and I retwisted my locs. This time, I did a loose retwist because I just retwisted my locs last week, and I sat under the dryer for all of 10 minutes and then let them air dry. Normally, I sit under the dryer for 45 minutes, but I had a hot date, lol…
This was by far my best retwist thus far because it shows the thickness of my locs and you know I want big juicy locs, lol! 
And one of my favorite things about the blue hair color is that it is subtle. Indoors my hair still looks black but once I get in the sun it shows. Secretly I get a kick out of people doing on double-take at my hair, lol…don’t judge me. 
When TB and I were on the train, you could hardly notice the blue, but here’s an up close shot in the sun… 
It’s BLUE….with a hint of green, lol! You can see more of the new color in action in my latest vlog update [HERE].  
Are you thinking of coloring your hair for the Spring / Summer?

I’m starting to love thicker locs more and more , i started loving brotherlocks , but traditional locs FTW

Love the blue color!! Thinking of dying my hair as well. What product did you use to lift your natural hair color to blonde?? And how long did you wait before you applied the blue dye?? Thanks!!

Thank you! Blue was definitely a fun color! I highly suggest going to a Professional Colorist before attempting at home. I damaged my locs so bad before I understood what I was doing.
