EW.. okay, how can you tell if your dreads are growing mold? I just looked in the mirror, and one of my back dreads has something on it that looks way too much like.. well, mold. it's greenish-blue and furry :( on closer inspection it looks like this particular dread is FULL of it.. but, it also looks like a piece of lint that could have got tangled in my dreads. AND, my dreads were dyed greenish-blue before I attempted to bleach it out, and failed. So I don't know if it's just hair that didn't really bleach, inside the dreads, or if it's mold! ahh.. what do I do? My dreads are barely 11 months old, and every time I've washed them I've blow dryed them for at least an hour. I really don't want to lose them now.
PS - I'm dying my dreads again (with henna) but brown this time.. if it was really mold, would it still show up through the brown afterwards? Because if it's just blue hair I know the henna will cover it up..
I've been lurking round perving on everyones beautiful dreadies so I thought it was bout time I'd show mine off! Here is one pic of me with my dreads then one of my boy with his naturally dreading hair :) ( Collapse )
