Mmm, got a few old photos for you today, taken by none other than LAFRATTA:

When the sun hit my black dreads, they look white in the photos... Strange...
Anyhow, my dreads are bye bye now. I will post updated photos soonish.

is there any way to get rid of build up of left-over shampoo in your dreads? because i believe that is exactly why my dreads are turning white on top.
any tips on how to get rid of it?
Plead the FIF!

or survey rather. i was gonna dye my dreads red but i just got this image of green dreads. i'm obsessed with willow trees and it would go with the tattoo i'm probably gonna get of a woman that morphs into a willow tree.
but i do have a job and i dunno how well it'd go over.
plus there is the whole finding green dye that looks good and works thing.

so i got two questions:
should i stick with red.

or try green?


anyone know any good webpages that sells fun hair dye colors. the only store we got is hot topic.

hi there.
i'm new here. i've had dreads for about 5 months now and they're doing just fine, although they've shrunk a lot in the past few weeks. but hey, what can you do.
so anyway, moving on to the point of this post. i've dyed my hair so many times now that i can't remember what my natural hair color is, but the last time i tried to dye my hair i noticed that the color didn't stick at all. so i guess i should bleach my hair before i dye it again.
but, i've never bleached my hair before, dreaded or undreaded. do any of you have experience with this? what's the best way to do it? which product should i use and how long should i leave it in? i don't want to go bald, heh.
i'll post some pictures after the dye job, i guess.

if i was to take out my dreads how short must i cut them? i know i dont really have to shave my whole head but is there a way for me to take out my dreads and still have nice hair but just pretty short (little above the ear)not extremly short, ive only had them for not even a year and im not set on parting with them now, but eventually in life i will
safety first


hey quick question. if you were to use something, to temporarily dye your dreads, like in a cheap can or plastic container, what would you use? i dont want to have any of that paint in a can seeping into my dreads and ultimatley causing a putrid stench or anything.

any advice?
