patronising dye woman rant.

went shopping today to try to choose a (boxed) dye to colour my dreads with, and i got descended upon by the l'oreal woman, wanting to help me choose a dye colour.

i'm always open to people's opinions when choosing colours, so i went with it. i wanted to dye them 2 different shades of red and a dark brown-red. she told me i should only go for an all over dye, because my hair is precoloured and "might end up khaki-ish if i dye with different shades to the one i've already used". she then told me, because of "the condition of my hair", i shouldn't dye it ever again, because my "hair might fall out".

as she walked away i made the sign of lish, and went on my way.

i guess this is one of those encounters with hair people, like the one kawaiinose had with the hairdresser who said her dreads would come out. i feel so included now. :)

i have a confession to make.

aside from the initial starting (w/ backcombing) i didn't really know much about dreads 'till i happened upon you all.

ssssoooooo in my innocent naiveness (and also my stylistic preference at the time) (i knew NOTHING about the maturing process... *smacks forehead*...)
i used a crochet hook to "fix" my ends. some of them it has seemed to work for... others not so much.

i also think it totally f*cked up the maturing process of the hair i had before i began... though the new growth is dreading QUITE nicely :^)

anyway, in the hopes that someone will have some suggestions (and with the knowledge that lish will verbally kick my ass), i'm posting some pictures and asking for opinions...


(warning: lots of pictures)

Hello everyone. I just have a few questions. I have been dreading my hair and without using any type of product in it. Anyways, They seem sort of loose, not too bad, though. What I am most concerned about are the roots. What is the best way to tighten them up??? Any advice will be helpful. Thanks.
