slightly off topic, but not;

a few months ago i bleached some of my dreads and dyed them purple, green and red (and left a few blonde).
it was fun for a while, but i'm getting tired of being called 'colorful' and want to go back to boring ol' dark brown.
problem 1; even though the dye was supposed to be temporary, the red doesn't seem to be going anywhere (probably because red is the strongest natural pigment and all). also, the dreads that were green are still green at the roots, and the purple ones are still pinkish.
problem 2; i combed out a few front dreads a couple of days ago because they were too short and annoying, thinking i could let 'em grow a bit and then re-dread them. one of those dreads was green and had held it's color quite well, so when i washed my hair the green spread over the whole undreaded lock of hair, leaving me with green bangs. yeah, great.
so the question is, how do i get rid of my multi-colored hair?
i'm afraid just using permanent brown dye wouldn't do the trick because it wouldn't cover up the green at the front and the red in my dreads completely. so should i bleach first and then dye, or user one of those hairdye removal kits (and then dye, probably, since orange-red isn't really my color)?
eh. sorry for being so wordy.
