I've got some questions about dying. (Sorry, heh.) My dreads are about six months old, so I'm hoping they're not too young... I'd like to dye just a few of them, and my hair is dark, so I'd need to bleach it first. I bought a Clairol bleaching kit thing, L'Oreal red hair dye, and a shower cap so I can cut holes and pull just the dreads I want to dye through.
Can anyone give me some advice? Should I cover them in tinfoil after I put the dye in? What's the best way to get the color in evenly? My mother's insisting it's going to fry the hair too much, and that there'll be "dreads in the bottom of the shower" before I know it. My hair's never been dyed before, I'm new to all of this, including the dread-y part. So yeah -- any sort of advice or whatever would be great.
Thanks guys, and sorry for the all text-ness. My prom was last night, I'll post pictures of what I did with my hair sometime soon, if anyone's intersted.
