Wow!, really nice progress!.
I think mine look kinda the same, but a bit frizzy because I started them with crochet.
Yep, it's a hard decision.
I would like also coloured tips by when mine mature. But I do think it seriously because bleaching might cause a considerable damage on my dreads. In that case, maybe I would choose to add some dread wraps to add colour to them.
I've seen some videos of people who bleached their tips and they had no problem. But as Soaring Eagle says, it's tricky. Not all hairs are the same... and mine is one of those hard to bleach.
When I started my journey, I had bleached tips, but as soon as my dreads started to change, the body of the dread ate all the bleached part.
You might try before getting dreads, because in that way you would be able to wash the bleach well and put other stuff in your hair to make it recover a bit. But after you start your dreads it also might happen your dreads eat all the coloured part, as they might not :P you can try.
And try vegan dyes... also as say SE, if you do baking soda and ACV, it would take super easy the dye. So you might get in that case an anti-residue shampoo.
I think grey colour looks amazingly breathtaking. But talking about vegan colours, I used Manic Panic on my bleached tips. It kinda fades easily in me, since I wash my hair 3 times per week. The thing I like about those is the wide selection of cool colours they have.
I am waiting for my dreads to mature, so I maybe would bleach again the tips and dye them... but this time I would give a shot to one called Directions. I would love to have different tones of purple.
Those brands are vegan and don't damage the hair.
Wow!. Loved your timeline!.
Mine also have gotten shrunk really crazy :s and the top layer look super messy. I had bleached tips and the dreads ate almost all of them, blunting the tips naturally. Take ages to dry, but I also wanted my hair do their thing.
Also love the colour!. I so hope for mine to mature and grow, I want to dye the tips again
I also have super straight hair that I think is really hard to dread naturally. I started with backombed and crochet 4 months ago and I haven't done anything, just separate them once in a while (that I also hope doing it correctly). And I know I'm hard to dread since I left some side bangs and they are straight as hell, haha.
Anyways, will be good to see pictures of your dreads!. Have a nice day.
Also dreadheadhq made me itchy and also dandruff. I got used to that until I finished the bottle. The only thing is true is that I felt my dreads a bit tighter. Also been using another shampoo but I'm almost sure I'm starting having problems with mold or mildew. I'm about to switch to acv and baking soda as soon as I can find vinegar here.
So I think you are making a wise choice.
Thank you very much!.
Well, I've been just cutting connecting hairs twice. I try to separate each time I wash my head, but I think I don't get at all the producedure. To me is like each time I wash the dreads, they really try hard to become congos.
So, not necessarily they have to be completely separated from one another?. Maybe I can take some pictures for you to see.
I started the journey with dreads between medium and pinky size, chest lenght, and now all the hair had shrunk over my shoulders. But I think, despite the cutting i've done, still have good size in my roots.
Thanks for the advices. I'm gonna try not to cut the connecting hairs.
