The Truth Behind Bleaching Your Hair

My coming across this video could not have come at a greater time. I've been getting a TON of emails from loc rockin' ladies who are interested in dyeing their locs for the first time. My first suggestion is to ALWAYS consult with a professional. Even though I've done dye jobs at home, a GOOD colorist can do 10x of a better job than we can.

And secondly, I always tell folx to be very weary about bleaching their hair. I've done it to a few locs and will NEVER do it again. At least not at home. After a cosmetology friend explained to me what happens when we bleach our hair, I've been a little weary about wanting to risk the health of my hair by doing it. This sucks as I LOVE playing around with hair color but bleaching? Even I have to take a step back from that. 

What's your take on bleaching the locs?
