Life in Color (super awesome giant paint party)

So I'm going to Life in Color and it's a big ass paint party which means I'll be covered head to toe in paint. Idk what this will mean for my dreads. Should I cover them up with a hat or just make sure to wash them really well afterwards? From some pictures I've seen people's hair is drenched in paint. I've never been though.

Have any of you been while having dreadlocks? What did you do?

Also, I'm super pumped about going!! It's going to be so freaking awesome.

It does sound freaking awesome, you are going to have such a blast. When it is time to wash it all off, shower first and rinse your dreads until the water seems to be clear, then soak in the tub for a long time, head under water.... If the water needs changing, do the end, shower off once more. Just to be sure, do the same thing for your next hair wash. Let us know how the fun was

Awh, that sounds awesome! there any way you'd have access to a shower before the paint starts drying?

Yeah, we will most likely get a hotel to stay at so I will have access to a shower!

Hey Anna,

I've found myself in a similar situation where the event sounds amazing, but I am cautious of the lasting effects on my dreads. Now that April has passed I am wondering how the experience of washing the paint out went for you. Any feedback would be helpful.
