Colored dreadlocks styles for women
Dying your hair is considered to be one of the best ways to express your personality through hair. It’s also one of the simplest ways to do it — the only thing you’ll need is a good hair dye. Oh, and your bravery, of course — we believe that you have to be a really brave person if you are gonna change your hair color to, like, red, yellow, green or blue.
Dreads are really a unique style, and you will definitely not make it worse by having your hair dyed. It will work nice for every black lady who wants to make a fashion statement (and to do it creatively) — but if you are still unsure of whether to dye your hair or not, we are ready to help you. The thing is, here we’ve gathered four awesome examples of how will your dyed locs look — and we are sure that they will not disappoint you. So, actually, all you have to do now is choose the color and be ready to change your style completely! Oh, and don’t worry about damaging your hair. We have also found three pieces of advice that will help your hair stay healthy and full — just follow them and everything will be fine.
Use a shampoo that doesn’t drain the color off. The first shower can be a real problem and it makes sense that you don’t want to lose your new, beautiful color. Low pH formulas are the key!
Then, cover your dyed dreads when you sleep. This advice would be useful for all women with dreads, not only for those who have colored locks — because if you wanna prevent dryness and losing shine and color, well, you should wear a scarf or a pillowcase. Protecting your hair is one of the most important things when it comes to dreads.
First dye, then lock. Dyeing your hair before locking it may work great because it’s much easier to dye hair when it’s in its natural state. The color will also stay longer if you dye hair before making the locks.

Do you have short hair? Or maybe you’re going to cut it before making the dreadlocks? Well, it doesn’t really matter.

But it’s not only about beauty, of course. Short dreads are perfect for beginners — they are easier to lock and to unlock, and of course, they dry faster. Another piece of good news is that all those mini dreads can be worn literally by anyone, because they’ll suit every occasion you are gonna have. Formal or informal?
