to bleach or not to bleach

So I've been considering bleaching my dreads. I need a change. Currently I have blonde bangs and natural brown locks.(tons of pics here: http://www.primeduchess.fotopic.net )
Previously I had considered dying them black. I have a bunch of black fakes I want to add in for volume, though I guess I could still use them if I bleach them too.

I was wondering about what types of bleach work best? If you have any recommendations or tips?
Also I was thinking that maybe I shouldnt bleach them, beacuse I'll have to keep bleaching them(the roots) and that will make them brittle and I dont want them breaking off.
Arg what to do...
I guess I am just looking for imput from other dreadheads.
