so next weekend im going to bleach out my dreads, i havent dyed my hair in over a year, not since before i had dreads.
As i recall, however, you should never bleach your hair on the day you wash it, because you need "scalp oils" all built up to keep you from getting chemical burns on your scalp.
I was my hair about once a week, and it takes two days to dry.
Bleach must be put on dry hair.
SOOOOO, how do you handle the washing-prior-to-bleaching?
is it okay if i bleach out my hair a week after washign it? or will my roots be too oily to really absorb the bleach? should i was my hair just like three days before? the day of?
b/c since I never wash my hair, it produces the oils so much slower than the average home-bleach-kit user who washes their hair every day.
Is there anything I should know about hairdye + dreads before I take the plunge?
I haven't been a blonde since I started locking my hair and I've decided blond hair just suits me better than the current brown. I want to use the hairdye I used to-- you know, the boxes with the deceptive, pretty models on them (because, as you find out later, the color doesn't make you as beautiful as her)-- and theoretically there shouldn't be a problem.
What I'm asking is, is there anything I need to do differently when I'm dyeing a dread? My best friend, who lives in Austria (so she can't help me with this), told me you have to "squeeze" the dye into the dread.
Also, do you think I could really fuck up and destroy my lovely crazy spidery head of dreads?
