My New Hair Color: Sassy Reds

Yep! You’ve guessed it! I decided to recolor my KRS hair group virgin Asian wavy/curly hair and re-installed it last Friday! I am so glad I did because I am loving the color!! I call it sassy red!! Lol! I decided to color the hair first with Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing Color Creme Intense Red for Naturally Dark Hair, Dark Intense AuburnI found at my local HEB. After that color application I decided to use the L’Oreal Feria Wild Ombre Haircolor, Medium to Dark Brown (O60)/a> in order to lift the color to the intensity I wanted which was a bright vibrant hair and I love it!! You may noticed that I decided to cut the hair a little shorter. I just could not handle the long hair, lol especially when I am working. I am literally a hot mess, hahaha.
