Colouring Dreadlocks

Dying dreadlocks, depending on the length and thickness of the dreads, may require more than one jar of Manic Panic Hair Colour.
  1. Always wear gloves.
  2. Separate each dread into sections.
  3. Heavily saturate each dread with Manic Panic Hair Colour using a colour brush. 
  4. Wrap up each dread with foil to prevent colour bleed.
  5. Leave on the foil for at least an hour.
  6. Rinse out each dread separately with cool water until it runs clear. Do not use shampoo.
  7. Blot out each dread carefully with an old towel.
  8. Ensure all dreads are completely dry before going to bed or wearing a hat to avoid colour staining.
