Natural and patience.

Can't wait for my natural hair color to grow back in! These roots are driving me crazy! Learning to manage my patience is a journey in itself. On the road of my dread journey. Learning patience. :)

I have a couple very tiny dreads and lots of loose hair (I combed some original dreads out thinking I was going to comb them all out) at the nape of my neck. I think I'm going to bleach those then dye them turquoise, dye some regular colored with the same, and lighten a couple.

Welcome! I as well was thinking of just doing a couple of dreads. I do have a semi permanent brownish color at home. I think I'd be Ohk with a few of them done. :)

I'm working on messing around with things. My daughter dyes her hair black then bleaches and dyes other parts funky colors. Last week when I was doing her hair, I had her dye a loc with the black dye, it turned it a lovely chestnut brown. It's on my neck line tho so it's not easy to see. We have tons of the turquoise dye left, so I think I'm going to slather some of it on a couple. They may turn out moldy green because of how dark my hair is, but it'll be something different lol. I have to re-bleach her again and may try one or two smaller dreadies. What I remember from bleaching my sons dreads several years ago was they can turn out really spotty...so I'm kind of nervous about that. I may try the blonde dye out too tho. Thanks for the suggestion!

I know what u mean. U can try a light blonde dye it may lighten them a little bit and maybe what u are looking for. I would stay away from the bleach tho that can be very harsh. I know from my own experience. But try it on one or two first to see if u like it and u can always repeat it again to keep lightening them but no bleaching. Ewww. My hair still feels like straw in some parts. And that was three months ago and before I started my dread process. They have come along way

I know what you mean. Now that I have a use for fun beads, I can't find any of the ones I had a long time ago.I've just rediscovered my hair a couple months ago, I love it! The only thing that's really bothering me to change is the color. I look at pics and it just looks like messy hair. I would like some dreadies lightened up some so you can actually see them. I have a lot of people tell me it's hard to tell I have dreads, especially when I have my hair pulled back.

Mons u are defiantly right! It is getting easier. And I do have some cool beads in there now. And I think I may want to wrap one or two. But not sure yet. I do have this amazing glass bead I had gotten from a friend like 10 years ago that I had worn on one of my dreads back then. And recently I have no idea where it has taken off too. I miss it and hope it will find its way back to me.

Good to hear it's getting easier not thinking about those pesky roots. I have the opposite problem, I want to lighten my hair some so you can see more dreadie definition! Given enough time, you probably won't think about your hair at all for a couple months at least. Then you'll realize you have hair again and obsess about it in different ways. Like what fun beads and cool wraps to do.

This week I'm doing a little better with accepting my roots. Thinking a little less about dying them. Since I had gone to look at dye an couldn't decide on a color. And what also helped I had found some old pictures of me with my natural color as well. I think if it were summer time and warmer weather I wouldn't have such a problem with it. As for in the summer my roots always blended in. They would almost lighten to a very light blonde naturally. Never had to dye my hair in the summer. But in the colder months my roots get very dark. U can't even tell I am naturally blonde. That's why I was having such a hard time trying to decided what color to dye my hair. So it is best to leave it alone. I was thinking tho maybe doing some toning sessions to help lighten the so calle blonde I have now cuz it's kinda a little yellowish but as u said I don't want to undo and progress.What method are u using for your locks? Are u doing it the natural way? I had back combed mine. So I am not to worried about losing to much progress. But if I were doing the natural way I would totally be worried about dying it at only 2 months old.

I did condition my hair afterwards. And a few deep ones. It did help. And it's true that the damage does help it dread faster. But hey lesson learned.
