I dyed my dreads with henna today.
My family says they can't really see a difference. I can though.
It's like I've got this hazelnut blanket on my head :P I'm glad you don't see the white dots of the dead hairs anymore. My locks feel really nice and I feel like the henna's kinda 'fixed' my hair again :D
I was scared to death my hair would turn out orange though, so I first tried the henna on one of my dreads in the back :)
I wish the flash on my cam wouldn't make my hair shine so much.
They're looking so frizzy and curly coz I've just washed & blowdried them :)
Oh well, all I can say is that I'm really pleased with the result :)
Ohh! Forgot one thing: in order to make sure every dread would be dyed, I had to take out my wrap :(
It was my very first one, I'd had it for about 7-8 months, kinda was one of the reasons why I was hesitating to do this. I must tell you though, after I took it out, I'd expected to see a bit moldish, undreaded piece of gunk under it.
BUT, 't was a rather pretty looking, ropey-ish, with some loops, clean dread instead :D
I've said this to someone a bit earlier: older dreads, new colour, new wrap (coming soon)
It's like a fresh start, for the both of us :)
I can't express enough how much I love my hair these days..Edit:
I hereby promise to post a decent picture of my hair by the time I put my new wrap in.
Which will be in about a week. Promise. You'll see. Yess :)
