Alrighty. So tonight I went ahead and bleached quite a few of my dreads. I know this is probably a stupid think to do, but first off, I used Clairol's strongest bleaching product. Then I used some toner that I'd had from previously dying my hair which was a whole other brand, but which didn't have a strong conditioning agent as a means to keep my dreads from completely coming undone. After using the toner though, I noticed some kind of wax-like build up on my scalp.
It hadn't been there before, so is this a reaction from my using two different products? Do you think this could damage my hair or dreads?
& I seriously promise to actually research the topic before diving right in next time, haha!
So I had some purple in my hair for a long time now, and I wanted to try something new. So last night as a spur of the moment idea I bought some blone dye and went home and went nuts! I'd already had some blue though, so I just added some of that in too! I love the messy feel -- I'm all about messy non-uniformed type hair coloring =-D
There are a tons more pictures, so beware if you have dial-up!!!

oh and something i forgot to mention in my last post: this semester of school ^mister man got a JOB TEACHING AT SUNY New Paltz (state university of NY @ New Paltz).
His parents, all summer, were like, "you better cut your hair. you're not going to be able to get a job . . . " etc, etc and well--- he did it. he now teaches a guitar class and he's also supervising an undergraduate music therapist intern. because it's through a state university, he is working for the state-- getting 6 grad credits paid for, and getting some extra cash. AND he didn't have to cut one.single.hair.
