24  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Is this possible? on: October 04, 2007 03:50:47 PM
I in the process of making roving dreadlocks i want to dye them purple (like a dark grape crush purple) I'm dyeing my hair the exact purple i want them to be could i use a watered down bath of the dye I'm using for my hair on my dreads?

I also have to make my boyfriend a bunch of brown dreads what the roving i have has white/grey fibers in it. i asked the lady at the store and she said to dye it with real hair dye, could i mix koolaide to get the brown color i want? or should i use the dye?
