    Instead of dyeing or bleaching your hair maybe you can try a hair rinse. I don't know what color you're looking for but it's a safe alternative to coloring. It rinses out after several washes but it's much better for your hair.

    I'm contemplating dying my hair. My loctician is all ab taking care of your hair and bc my hair has broken off so much she's not willing to bleach and dye it. I was thinking of getting someone else to dye it and just have her take care of my hair (so rude right). I wanna dye it this summer so that by nov the color will be locked in and not run when I get in the water and stuff i'm just scared that I'll break my hair off more...

      I used to have locs and I used to use henna dyes/hair rinses to change my colour. Rinses/henna dyes don't give you a DRASTIC change, but it does add a nice hue to your hair.

      I bleached mine in efforts to change my colour one summer. BIG MISTAKE (for me). My hair colour looked great for a while...but when the colour faded it out...my ends looked blond and dry. I had to keep dying it to cover it up. That only dried out my hair

      If you are having breakage problems now and you intend to keep the colour after the wedding, you may need to change your current routine a bit and research new products that will work for colour treated hair.

      Good luck!
      Enjoyed a FANTASIC wedding in Mobay with 95 of our closest friends and family!!

        Hey ladies thanx for all ur advice.
        My Loctician thinks that my breakage has to do with stress. I've bleached my hair in the past and it stayed rather healthy, with me keeping is oiled and greased. For me rinses are a waste of energy. I have alotta hair I can barely see a diff (except in the sunlite bc then it's really pretty). But yea I think I'll be holding off on the dye for a little while.

          Lady D..how are you. I have used Organic Root Stimulator's Olive Oil line and their Cholesterol conditioner for years and I love it. My sister started using Ms Jessies and Carols daughters and swears by them...

          I'm in the same boat as you re: fiance...

                I am having the same problem ochiebride! My hair is unrelaxed and really long, usually I wear it in twists. I can imagine going to the resort to get my hair done and them just staring at it not knowing what to do!

                I also contemplated getting it blown out (if they know how) but that takes so long, and I wouldn't look like myself. The other option is do it myself in my usual style but that is not special for the wedding. hmmm, did you find any ideas?

                      Ok I'm going for a trial next Wednesday. I had a custom version of this hairpiece made from a seller on Etsy. Click the image to open in full size.

                      I am going to go for some sort of low updo with it. I'm thinking something like this. Click the image to open in full size.

                      It isn't a good photo since it only shows one side but I told me stylist to just come up with something. Hopefully I'll like it! I have a veil too so I'm thinking I'll just wear that down the aisle, but the rest of the night, do the hair piece. I don't know if they'll look go together.
