has anyone noticed their dreads being a lot lighter than their non-knotty hair? I've never bleached any hair on my scalp but for some reason my dreads are noticeably lighter than my undreaded hair, and the dread roots. I'm guessing that the hair in the dreads is "deader"? My dreads are about 2-3 years old.
