Hi all!

New here, I haven't used my lj in something like 3 years, but as I just recently decided to get dreads I've been looking around at different communities and thought it might be time to start up again.

Anyways, I got 'em done three days ago!

color stripper

Well, after having nearly accomplished bleached white dreads a couple of months ago, I went and dyed my hair dark brown with blue, now dark brown again with red, and my indecisive self thinks I want to try and go as close to natural as possible and staying that way for a long long time, so probably getting it back to that bleached and letting my medium blonde hair grow out again.

So I want to strip the all the brown color, and I've used this product ColorFix before ( when I had straight regular hair, I dyed it black and I'm naturally blonde and the product worked GREAT and I had pretty much my natural color back.

But this time, my hair is bleached then dyed brown instead of natural then dyed brown, plus dreaded, and I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with using this hair stripper with hair that has been bleached and dyed with semi-permanent punky colors along with regular permanent dye? I just wonder if it'll turn out as well as it did before.

Also, if anyone has used this product, did they also skip step #3 like a lot of the reviewers stated they did? Some people say it darkens it a little but some people say it keeps it from turning brassy in a few days. Anyway, just anyone's experience with this product would be great.

Thanks in advance.

 hi all, i used to post hereunder the username mad1season (about a year n half ago).. until i cut off my dreads

this is me when i had dreaddies, they were 3.5 years old there.

when i started them i used wax WORST DECISION EVER.. i am about to do my bf's dreads, he has super long curly hair so it's gonna be sweet.. and i know all about how this journal works and i searched the memories for a step by step guide though i didn't find anything (lish please dont yell at me!!) i am definately not resorting to wax this time, so i'm after more info....... and trust me i didn't wanna ask but every site ive looked at mentions wax.

this journal really makes me want them again :p
