ive been around here for a while but havent really posted yet...anyhow...

i've spent the past 2 days trying to dye the dreadicles -- i did it a few times when they were new but guess now that mine are pretty well locked i'm having a hell of a time.
i'm going for burgundy red. the 'dreadlocks' are taking darkdarkdark blackred and the roots are these vibrant oranges and pinks.
i had this problem with black too -- brown roots, blue dreads from blueblack.
i've done henna with great results but it doesn't play nice with chemical dyes too well. and picking out all the rebel twigs that made it thru the sifter was never too fun.

i know some people here dye theirs....any ideas?
