Plead the FIF!

(no subject)

this is for people with dark brown to black natural hair.

i been trying to dye my dreads red but when i did it last year they just turned kinda reddish gold at the tips. i used the brightest color red i could find (some hot topic shit). any suggestions? i want my hair as bright red as i can possibly get it. did i not leave the bleach in long enough? i left it in longer than the bottle said.

well i dont have dreads......yet. going all natural. but i dont think it will take TOO terribly long to see some progress as my hair tangles easily and is down to my asscrack.

i once went a month with no brushing/no conditioning and such, but i wasnt 100% into it. and i dont do anything that involves that kind of commitment unless i AM 100% into. well, i now definitely know that i am.

my ex has dreads so it was nice being around someone to gain some knowledge and getting to oogle at them all the time. hopefully i can oogle my own before long. :D

so anyway, hi. cant wait to post some progress pics!

Just General Wondering

When you have dreads extensions made from synthetic hair, if they start to come a bit loose, you dip them in some boiling water and it tightens them up again.

Do you thing that if you dipped your dreads in boiling water (being careful not to burn yourself) it'd tighten them up some?
