My hair is still wet from the soaking, but already feels lighter that it was before. Everyone who hasnt deep cleaned - stop reading this and go and do it. NOW.
Before the clean... I mostly just want to get as much of this dark dye out as i can.
I mixed up a whole lot of sodium bicarb, half a lemon, tea tree oil, and salt. Then poured water from the kettle, and lowered my dreads in. I didnt think i would ever boil my hair - but id used so much wax at first i just wanted to make sure i could get it all out. Also makes me think of steralising babies things by putting them in boiling water - making my hair even cleaner and less bacterious from a summer spent lying in the grass, at festivals etc :) Also added lemon to make it look pretty.
During the soak. i soaked the ends until the water was cool enough for me to put my head in.. and then dunked myself :) :
After about an hour:
I was expecting it to change the colour as only dyed them a couple of weeks ago - but what the hell is that almost cream coloured, gunk that was floating around in there? Im so glad its out of my hair! Might deep clean once a week until i no longer have that crap lingering around in there. Im hoping its wax residue. Yuck.
And my dreads now:
I think some of the colour is coming out at the back... but that also may be down to me doing a crap dye job..
There are a lot more loose hairs - reassurance that there is significantly less crap in there gluing bits of hair down! Amazing :D
