dyeing baby dreads?
Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling
My hair is pretty dark, not jet-black, but dark enough for my dreads to look almost like regular hair when it's tied back. I want to lighten my hair a shade or 3. My tnr dreads are fairly new, 3 and a half months old. They hold together fine when I wash them, but I do notice they get signifigantly softer afterwards, which is scary but I guess a part of life when you have smooth straight asian hair. I have a bleached section in my head from before i started dreading.
Has anyone had any experience dyeing dreads at this stage? ALSO I live in the fog, and there's rarely sun. When there is sun, I rarely can go play in it because that's my life. So I don't foresee using lemon juice or anything like that working fantastically well for my lifestyle. So, does anyone have a suggestion for lightening it (if it's safe to do so now without destroying any progresson the contrary, i've also had someone tell me that after they bleached & died their dreads, they locked up faster, but they had aftrican american hair, so i dont know if that would work the same on my straight smooth hair.)? MY plan would basically be to bleach and then dye. I guess.
.....feedback please! and photos/links thereof, if at all possible.
