MANE Events: Purple Hair Turned Purple Highlights

As if you couldn’t tell, the purple reign on my natural hair has taken a backseat.  Besides my highlights in the front, there is little to no trace of a purple hue in my hair and to be quite honest, most of those are even fading back to brown/blonde.  I guess that’s what happens when you dye your hair with a semi-permenant dye.
And it wasn’t as if I was looking for a permanent change to my hair color.  I just didn’t expect to only enjoy the intensity of the color for about a month or roughly 3 weeks… ? Yea, and it’s just about gone.  Bummer.
Can’t say that it doesn’t look damn cool, though!  These purple highlights really have my hair poppin’!

I have been wearing my hair the way I showcased above and explain this style in depth in my “Define Your Coils” video and post (you can find it here).

For a new look, instead of washing my hair (risking even more of the purple to vanish) I just twisted it up and refreshed the back and sides for a new style. 

The front was twisted with a little water, Eco Styler Argon Oil Gel and JUUUUUUUST a smidgen of Obia Natural Haircare Twist Whip Butter (and by smidgen I mean barely any).  I allowed my hair to set overnight and refreshed the back and sides the next morning with water and gel.  
That’s it.  Nothing magical, no miracle product for crazy definition – just the bare minimum.
My hair turned out amazing, though.  Very similar to this style that I created a few months back before the latest haircut:

It’s really time to wash and restyle, I’m just unsure how I want to rock it though. I’ll see how long these twists will last before trying something new!
So how are you wearing your hair this week?

    That color, cut and style are BEAUTIMUS!! I’m also interested to know where you snagged that top you’re wearing… oh the pretty colors! 🙂
