Thirsty Roots Member Lydia has some beautiful natural hair and stylish fashion sense. She shows how you can transform your natural hair by adding a little color. In her words:
My hair does what it wants! Lol. The color was done in my kitchen! I used aluminum foil to separate the highlights! 😉 A lot of moisture keeps it healthy!
We love her style with the use of color not only in her hair but in her clothing choices. The bright oranges and yellows really add a spice to her look. Lydia’s natural hair brings out her uniqueness and individuality:
I am so passionate about natural hair!! I believe hair is connected to our very being and helps drive our perception and others perception about who we (I) am! Hair is power! 🙂
I’ve been natural since August of 2008. I chopped 7 or so inches of chemically straightened hair and then it became so much fuller and more healthy.
With a simple pin up hairstyle, Lydia showcases her beautiful curly coily natural hair effortlessly:
It’s just the coil of my hair – to get it extra coily instead of more fro-like, I make sure never to comb my hair after its wet (only combing in the shower when I have conditioner on it) and only lightly using a towel to help get some of the water out. The coil is the most “coily” (lol) when it is at its “wettest” … But I don’t twist or curl it to get the coil.
And some of her favorite hair care products:
