Just the Tips
So when I started my dreads 3 years ago, I used wax (this was a couple of months before I found this site) since then I've stopped and decided to let them grow out and chop the waxy part instead of chopping them all off at the time. I've finally decided that by spring they'll be long enough to chop the bottom 3-4 inches of wax off. That being said, I would love to have some fun with them this winter. I'm thinking about darkening them and bleaching just the tips (bottom inch or so). I wouldn't think of using any harmful chemicals, but since its just the bottom part that will be cut off in a few months anyways, I don't have too many qualms against it. I've never dyed my hair before so I really have no idea what I'm doing. I've heard that coffee works to darken them, but how do you use it? Do I just soak them in a pot of coffee for a while? Also how would I whiten up the tips? Thanks for any and all help!
