    Has anyone in here ever dye their locs? I notice this is becoming a new trend for women. Some dye it red or gold. And if so..why...isn't this harmful to the hair?

    re love locs

    I have to admit that Yes I have put dye on my locs.This was due to the fact that after one hot summer out in Spain the sun changed some of my locs from black to a reddish gold colour.I liked the effect.So I have dyed a few of them and I dont feel they suffered too much damage.I selected a few I wanted to dye and once dye was applied they were wrapped individually in foil and taken out as soon as the colour began to change.Once I rinsed them off I covered hair in oil and sat with heat cap on for about half an hour.I do that every week now for maximum conditioning.I would not make dyeing them a regular thing, in fact I only ever did it that once because I;m happy with the colours that it is.
    The trick is in Listening to the Energy of what your locs want and dont want.If that makes me sound crazy, well maybe I am after carrying the weight of all this hair on my crown chakra!!!
    Peace and Blessings

    re to Pharaoh Jah

    Hi Pharaoh Jah!
    Yes I understand.Like I say I did it just once and have no intention of repeating it.I understand now that it is(or can be) harmful to one;s health.
    Peace and Blessings

    Hi Sunkissed

    You know you will do it Anyway...I know you will do it Anyway! You wont rest till you have that look you want!! we;re all the same.I know its not a Healthy thing to do and now I done it thats it...my hair the colour I wanted now.Way I truly looked at it was, the environment is slowly killing us, the Food is slowly poisioning us, the air is slowly choking us, tthe water is contaminated and even sex aint good for me anymore.What the heck, I;ll colour my locs!
    Peace and Blessings
