Wave-Crashing Loc Coloring

Every once and a while I want some dreadlocks dramatics, especially during my Southern summery months. When sunkissed tresses are in session, I use Creme Of Nature moisture-rich hair color with shea butter conditioner. And my mavericks know I love me some shea butter-anything — for my scalp, face, lips, elbows, kneecaps. You get the full-body moisturizing picture. This month I pulled a few jet black locs from the front and applied Creme of Nature’s red hot burgundy for a pinch of pop. The subtle color companioned my hot pink beach cover-up and island-crafted accessories gracefully.
