I will NOT embark on an expedition of this magnitude without taking elementary precautions Richard!!

Just wondering, especially from all the Australian dreadheads out there, what shampoo do you use?? I'm in Tasmania and the only shampoo I have found which is even remotely non residue is one by Redken, Tea Tree Oil shampoo for sensitive scalp, and it claims to remove build up of other shampoos. Can anyone tell me from the ingredients, whether it is non residue? They are: Water, Sodium laureth sulphate, cocamidopropyl betaine, TEA-lauryl sulphate, cocamide DEA, sodium chloride, melaleuca alternifolia tea tree oil, tetrasodium EDTA, citric acid, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, CI 19140, CI 42090. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks a million :-)

Wool + Dye.

I checked the memories, but couldn't find anything about this:

I have wool felted into my hair in a few places, and I'm thinking of dying my hair either blue or green [just over my natural hair color, I think]. Will the wool take the dye, too, or retain its color? I WOULD do a test strip, but I don't have any wool right now.

multiple bleach processing dreads

alright so before I dreaded my hair I bleached my hair out from a red color. I had to do it a total of 3 times to get it to the color it was. I tried to bleach out the roots of my dreads last night and am unhappy with the results, so (after checking the memories extensively to no avail) I am asking you guys how long should I wait to bleach the roots again. I am using just a box bleach I bought at the store because I'm cheap and it's what I'm used to doing. I also have read lish's wonderful text on bleaching/dying dreads but it doesnt cover what I am talking about. I would also like to add that I don't go over the parts that have already been bleached in my dreads I just want to do the roots.
