Looking for an opinion.. [18 Jun 2009|05:44pm]
I'm thinking about stripping my hair/bleaching my hair (ends or all of it, not sure) and applying purple dye.

Now I have looked over lishd's text on such things many times, but I'm looking for a bit of personalized advice.

About 14 months ago, I bleached my hair for 10 minutes with 40 vol bleach. It lightened the ends of my dreads considerably, and they've since faded. I now want to dye the ends a dark purple with a vegetable dye, which means stripping/bleaching the ends once again and then dying.

I recently did a cholesterol treatment on my dreads, as well as a deep cleaning treatment as general maintenance.

So my question is...which do you think I should do? bleach + Toner, or stripper + toner, or either without toner...basically, given what I want to do to my dreads, what are my options, in your guys opinion, or do I even have any without risk of losing the tips of my dreads?

Just a quick post to ask something.. I had a look through the memories but couldn't find anything on this, and I know it's nowhere near Halloween but I thought I'd ask in advance because I'm getting my costume ready early, also in case I need to give up on the idea and think of another costume.

I'm planning to dress up as Tikal from Sonic the Hedgehog this year, and was wondering if anyone has tried using those cheap spray-on hair colours on their dreads? And how was it to remove, did it come out easily? I just don't wana be stuck with bright orange dreads lol.

Thanks to anyone that can tell me.

And so this isn't text only...

My cute thinnest part of all my dreads fell off today when I was removing some fluff from it.. I may try to sew it back on but not sure how that will go.

[gentle conversation in very hushed, light tones]
Me: "Bri?"
Bri: "Mm."
Me: "Are you okay?"
Bri: "Mmf."
Me: "Are you sad?"
Bri: "Yes."
Me: "Do you want to watch My Neighbor Totoro?" [the only anime we really watch, since we were little it's made us feel happy when we're sad]
Bri: "No."
Me: "Do you want me to lay down next to you?"
Bri: "Mm, no."
Me: "Do you want me to play Yoshi's Story on this guitar?"
Bri: "No."
Me: "I'm going to play Yoshi's Story on this guitar."


 i liked this image of my dreads so i print screened for you to see :D

Hey gudu gurus! I've been growing my babies for about a month/month and a half (I've lost track tbh) and after getting frustrated at the back of my head refusing to even knot a little bit, I did a bit of backcombing. It's all fallen out again though :(. Anything else I can do that might help? My hair is really soft (I had a treatment at Easter before I decided I wanted to dread it) and I wash it atm with Original Source mint and tea tree shampoo once every three or four days.

For your help, a picture.Collapse )
