compassion for all

dyeing dreads

i'm going to dye my hair tomorow and i need some tips.
lucky for me, the FAQ section on knottyboy is down....

so should i have clean hair before i dye them? does it matter? because i last washed them 2 or 3 days ago.

is it hard to do it yourself? i don't have anyone around to help me tomorow and it was kind of a sporatic decision when i realized i had some purple left.

*elastics update - i kept elastics on my roots for about two weeks until they were bugging me, and it tightened up most of my roots. they are nice and hard clumps. but the only problem was that underneath some of them i found leftover sea salt from washing. not cool. i'm thinking of putting elastics on my ends now to fix those up.
