So a friend of mine bleached a few random locks- although, in these pictures you can't see them >.< I'll try to get some better pictures but here are a couple for now! :] I hate that they have loosened up because of getting wet >.< I know, it's a process.

and i usually don't look furious.

Been a while since I've posted to this community.

If anybody remembers me, updated pictures of my dreads.

Before my 2nd bleaching.

After my 2nd bleaching..

Way back in the early days.

Anyway. I just had a couple questions regarding shampoo and dye.

I used to have some of the DreadHeadHQ Dread shampoo, but I've since run out, and I'm not in a position to order anymore off their website. So I did some looking around and I found some Neutragena Anti Residue shampoo. Would this be alright to wash my dreads with?

And lastly, I want to dye some of my bleached dreads to bright red. Can anybody provide some links to the best dye for dreads, and maybe a how to, if it's difficult?

Thanks in advance.

one year together

A couple weeks ago was my Dread's first year anniversary. We've gone through some hard times, and some freakingly amazingly fantastic good times. Here are some snapshots...

I love them to pieces, and I want to keep them forever. This year went by like nothing.

buh bye

Ok so it's my dreadlocks 6 month birthday today. It's sad though because i've decided i miss my normal hair too much. I'm going to try and bruch them out this weekend. Hopefully with the help of my fiancee. I love my dreads so much, but at the same time i hate them. I need change yet again, and seeing as i can't dye or shave my head in an unusual way like i'd love to (damn job) i think i want rid of the dreads. I feel quite sad actually, but i'll hopefully get the jist of making synth ones and wear them occasionally.

Any tips on brushing out dreads? Mine are quite solid and very dreaded up. A lot of my hair falls out when i brush them out too. :S i'm a bit worried about that because i have thin hair as it is. I plan to dye it dark brown again after i've brushed them out because otherwise it'll be patchy where i dyed it with dreads in. I'll also need to trim it because i cut my dreads at all uneven lengths.

So yeah, goodbye dreads on saturday, if i can bring myself to do it! Anyone able to recommend any deep conditioning products that might help?

All that's left to say is thanks guys, you've been great help and inspiration! :) I'll still lurk and look at your loverly locks if thats ok.
