Maintaining Platinum Blonde Dreads
Hi everyone! I am attempting to dread my hair for the second time. The first time I tried was about 6 years ago and I used wax. They were like little candles so after a month I combed them out and gave up.
I went to a friend of a friend at a salon who backcombed them for me - I am a teacher in a NYC school so I need to have them manicured at all times! I am 7 weeks in and they are starting to smooth out and are tightening every day! I'm really pleased with the progress.
HOWEVER, I started with my hair bleached platinum blonde, and slowly, some spots of my hair are turning GRAY! It's gross! I wash my hair 1-2 times a week and do not put any product in it (other than lemon juice occasionally) - I don't know what could be causing parts of my hair to fade and change colors. Has anyone else had this problem?
I am getting the roots re-bleached this week, but I was hoping to avoid bleaching everything again!
