Well, this is my first time posting in this community, luvin evry1s funky dreads. Mine are 7 months old and i adore them! I would put up a pic, but my rich text doesn't work at the mo :( I do however have a question. I recently bleached my dreads (and they went bright yellow) then i dyed them back brown the next day and my dreads are really damaged at the tips. Would cutting them at the tip, just below where the dread stops damage them at all... i don't see why it would, but i wouldn wanna damage my babies!!
My boyfriends cat has a dread. It is so cute and little. I just wanted to share the news.
yup, my baby dreds are a little over a month old now and im aching to bleach a few. they seem like they'd be pretty okay. you see, im a crazy hair dye whore and i like to change my color constantly. but anywho...thats all.
Sewing buttons (like ones used to fasten trousers) into dreadlocks: good idea or not?
I read the post in the memories section to get a good idea of how to dye my dreads. thing is, even before I had dreads, I never colored my hair (except for once, which was a disaster).. this is all new to me. so I have questions.
my main question so far is about the kind of dye. are there any recommendations that anyone has? I know next to nothing about it, but I know I don't want to bleach my hair. my hair is brown, and what I would ideally like to go for is to be able to dye my hair reddish and let it fade out on its own. is this even possible, or is whatever I do going to be permanent?
with that said, I also don't want to use temporary dyes like manic panic. the one time I did dye my hair turned out to be a nightmare. is there something in between temporary and permanent? like something that will stay in for awhile but not forever?
and all my question are coming at you with my dreads in mind.. they are my first priority in this. so if anyone has any brand recommendations that work well with dreads, I would really appreciate it. :)
one last question: my dreads are soft now. when I dye them, is this going to change?
sorry if I sound dumb. this whole hair-coloring thing is new to me. any advice would help me.
and thanks in advance! :D
