Help! Highlights on curly hair

NeirelleNeirelle Posts: 126Registered Users
I have black 3b curls i wanted to show off of my curls my friend told me putting highlights will show off my curls since i have very dark hair... What kind of style of highlights or what color is good for my hair??

    Subtle red or dark brown highlights look good with black hair.

    I agree:-) I did mine a week ago. I used a box dye(probably not the best idea) but it is a dark red color.

    I got some done at Devachan last year and they were nice! Kind of a mellow, caramel-brown-reddish color. He said that going any lighter on black hair would look silly, like stripes, and would hurt the hair. The way they do it at Deva, with your hair dry they kind of paint the highlight thinly down each individual curl so it catches the light. I think this works better on curly hair than just kind of picking a random area and brushing it on, if that makes any sense?
    3b, fine, medium density, normal porosity
    Wash: Deva No Poo, sometime Phytojoba, Avalon lemon when needs clarifying
    Rinse-out: Deva One Condition, CJ Beauticurls Strengthening, Phytojoba (kinda heavy for my hair but good noisture)
    Leave-in: Phytokeratine, CCCCL
    Styling: Deva Coconut Supercream or their Wave Maker with a little CS over the top
