Hair Color FAQs

If you’re curious about my hair color, you’ve come to the right place! Keep reading for some of the most frequently asked questions about the copper brown hair color on my natural hair.

What color is your hair?

I wish I could give you a specific color, but the closest I can get is that it is to call it copper brown. In extension colors I think the closet is a T1B/33, so a 33 with 1B roots.

Where did you get your hair color done?

My most recent hair color was done by Pascal at Pascal Hair Kenya. You can see the step-by-step process in the video below. I recently went back for a color gloss to add a bit more shine & dimension since reds fade quickly.

What box color can I use to get the same hair color?

There’s no way to ensure a specific hair color outcome when you use a box color (except for maybe jet black), especially if you already have color in your hair. Everyone’s hair is slightly different — different hair density, porosity, and different virgin hair color will all impact how a color appears on your hair. If you want my exact color, I highly recommend visiting an experienced colorist who is familiar with both natural hair (it colors differently) and professional hair color. I’ve colored my hair with box color in the past and it led to severe breakage. A coloring pro will best be able to match my color on your hair and dye your hair in such a way that it minimizes breakage. Please don’t try box color on your own hair unless you know what you’re doing!

What other colors have you dyed your hair?

I’ve done light brown highlights, blonde, copper red, burgundy, and a tri-tone ombre color! Check out my hair color journey prior to my recent color below.

How do you take care of colored natural hair?

Colored natural hair does require extra maintenance. I deep condition my hair every single time I wash it (which is roughly once a month), and I use low maintenance styles like afros and puffs to avoid over-manipulation. After being natural for 11 years, I’m definitely a lazy natural, so for me, my hair color is my style and I don’t feel the need to do additional styling like regular twistouts.

Are you going to continue coloring your hair?

Yes! The year that I had black hair was weird — I didn’t look like myself! My hair color is now my signature style. I’m looking forward to adding in some more robust blonde highlights in a few months!
