Frugal Fall Color & Knotless Braid on 4C Hair

This post has been sponsored by Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


It was a win for me when I found the perfect stylist to install my braids and found the perfect hair color to make my hairstyle POP!. Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture has come through for me yet again and brought my fall hairstyle together. I colored my grey roots using Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture in Dark Brown from Dollar General just before having my braids installed. For me, coloring my hair at home is the most economical way to reduce the cost of my monthly hair care budget.Frugal Fall Color & Knotless Braid on 4C Hair

For me, I just want my new gray hair to blend in with my dark brown hair which is something I can do at home. Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture in Dark Brown from Dollar General provides deep nourishment for moisturized hair for less than $10.Frugal Fall Color & Knotless Braid on 4C Hair

That’s a savings of over $100 and I’m here for that kind of frugality. Before going to the salon to get my braids, I touched up my roots with the new formula Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture. I didn’t have a lot of grays this time because I’ve been more consistent with coloring my hair this year. I made the switch exclusively to Schwarzkopf® hair color around January because of the results and package contents. Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture is for all hair textures including coily hair. My hair feels healthy after every application and I can tell that the breakage is reduced.

The box not only includes the color, but also a protective Pre-Color Serum to condition my hair before the coloring process. The serum helps keep my strands soft and stretched so the hair color goes on evenly from root to tip.

The tip makes parting my hair and targeting my roots with one hand easy. I specifically wanted to even out the color at the crown of my hair where my grays were showing. Since my final style would be braids with neat parts, I wanted my roots to have an even color.Frugal Fall Color & Knotless Braid on 4C Hair

Keratin Color added Macadamia nut oil to their new formula to increase moisture during the coloring process and I felt it in my coils. After applying the color, conditioning, rinsing and drying my hair my coils were soft and bouncy. Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture is specifically designed for women of color and it shows in how bold the color and moisture comes through on my hair.

Here’s what my hair looked like after coloring with Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color & Moisture and getting my braids done.
